WATERTOWN — The city is trying to figure out how it can resolve an issue with untreated wastewater getting discharged into Beaver Meadows, a large wetlands west of the city.

It has happened for decades when the city alleviates residential flooding in the Butterfield Avenue area during periods of heavy, extended rains and rapid snow melts, according to a memo to City Council members from City Manager Kenneth A. Mix.
