Military Cutoff Road Sewage Spill Fixed

WILMINGTON -- The repairs on the broken sewer line on Military Cutoff Road were completed on Saturday. No raw sewage ended up in surrounding waterways.

The break was caused by a DOT contractor working to install storm drains as part of a road-widening project.

Vacuum trucks cleaned up the spill. Workers took the material to a nearby manhole.

New Hanover County engineering crews worked through part of Friday night to finish the repairs.
