Another Sewage Spill in New Hanover County

AUGUST 15, 2005 -- Waste management crews cleaned up a sewage leak in the Blue Point neighborhood off Porters Neck Road Monday.

New Hanover County officials say less than 10,000 gallons of wastewater escaped when a man working to connect the sewer to a new development grazed an unmarked sewer line.

Robby Heath was working on the project when the line was hit and says the situation never got out of hand thanks to a fellow worker's quick thinking.

Officals have already taken samples and found no high levels of bacteria.
