Sewage Leak Spills 3,000 Gallons

NEW HANOVER CO. -- Crews have cleaned up a sewage spill in the northern part of New Hanover County.

About 3,000 gallons of untreated sewage spilled Sunday in the Wendover subdivision near the Bay Shore area.  The sewage leaked into a ditch that feeds into Pages Creek.  Officials do not know how much of the sewage entered the creek.

Authorities say the spill was caused by a piece of lumber clogging a sewer line.

The New Hanover County Engineer Department contained the spill and cleaned up the waste.  The NC Division of Water Quality was notified immediately of the overflow.
