Line Obstruction Causes Sewage Leak

NEW HANOVER COUNTY -- Authorities say an obstruction in the sewer line caused a leak Tuesday night near Town Center Drive and Eastwood Road.

The raw waste spilled from a manhole, allowing some of the sewage to flow into Two Mile Creek and Bradley Creek. A vaccum truck picked up some of the waste, but more than two thousand gallons of raw sewage leaked before the spill was capped.
