Sewage Line Breaks, Causes Raw Sewage to Spill onto Intersection
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A break in a sewer line caused about 300 gallons of raw sewage to overflow onto a Panhandle intersection.
The Pensacola News Journal reports utility crews responded Friday and diverted about 12,000 gallons of sewage for disposal and treatment.
The Emerald Coast Utility Authority said a private contractor broke the line while working on a road project.
The utility said the area where the sewage was spilled has been disinfected and state and county health and environmental officials were notified.
