SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The City of Savannah responded to a sewage spill on Tuesday around 2:30 p.m. at 210 Wesley Street. By 5:30 p.m. the sewage line was repaired.
An estimated 2,790 gallons of sewage spilled into the Harmon Canal. The city says the spill was caused by a blockage of an undertermined origin in the sewer main causing the pipe to crack.
Crews were able to bypass the damaged line until it could be fixed.
The City of Savannah states the Georgia Environmental Protection Dvision has classified the spill as a minor under state regulations.
