GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Wastewater spilled into a tributary of Richland Creek in Greenville on Monday, according to city leaders.
Officials said a sewer pipe broke near 307 Bradley Blvd. and allowed the wastewater to flow into the tributary.
Crews are working with the state Department of Health and Environmental Control to clean up the sewage, officials said. They said the damaged pipe is being bypassed with temporary pumps, preventing any more sewage from spilling into the creek.
A picture of the scene showed sandbags had been placed near two culverts in an effort to stop the wastewater from flowing downstream.
Officials said people and pets should stay out of the creek until crews have finished cleaning up the spill.
