The Yosemite Valley wastewater system is experiencing mechanical difficulty. To help our crews make repairs, we are asking that all our visitors, residents, and staff in Yosemite Valley conserve water. Please practice sound water conservation measures and limit the amount of water you use, particularly water that will end up in the sewer system.

Are there any indications that this is or isn't related to the Route 140 rockslide? As far as I know, the sewer line from the Valley to the El Portal treatment plant runs under the road so it would currently have a few thousand tons of rock debris on top of it.

One of the Highway-140-is-open stories mentions the sewer line too: https://sierranewsonline.com/highway-140-into-yosemite-now-reopened/

Park officials would like to thank all the park employees who worked hard to remove the rock, assess the underground sewer line, and make temporary road repairs.

No mention of what, if anything, the assessment found nor of how the wastewater crisis is going.
