GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

City of Greenville officials are alerting residents of a sanitary sewer overflow Thursday afternoon.

Officials say the overflow occurred in the vicinity of Mauldin Road and Wenwood Road.

The cause was determined to be a blockage caused by a combination of grease and rags that should not be discharged or flushed into the sewers.

The following areas were affected: an unnamed tributary near the intersection of Wenwood Road and Mauldin Road, and the Reedy River downstream beginning at the Mauldin Road bridge.

Crews responded and were able to clear the blockage, but ReWa recommends avoiding all contact with affected waterways until testing is completed.
