GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Wastewater is no longer leaking into an Upstate creek.
Keith Bishop with Greenville’s Public Works tells us temporary repairs are complete and the pipe is no longer leaking wastewater into a creek off Stone Hollow in the Augusta Road area of the city.
Bishop says they found that the wastewater main was leaking into a nearby creek on Tuesday.
Public Works staff found the leak behind a home on Stone Hollow, not far from Augusta Road.
City officials believe the pipe failed due to possible erosion.
They put up signs in the area asking people who live there to avoid contact with the water in the creek, as a precaution.
Bishop says crews will make permanent repairs to the pipe and the area will be clean up Thursday.
Water testing should also be completed by Thursday afternoon and they’ll test again in about a week.
