Thursday night’s severe rain event is being blamed for a 1,875 gallon discharge of untreated wastewater.
The sewage spilled from a manhole near the Town of Clayton Wastewater Treatment Plant located at 1000 Durham Street.
The untreated wastewater entered a storm drain leading to Little Creek.
The NC Division of Water Resources was notified of the event Friday and is reviewing the incident.
Citizens who have questions about the spill can contact the Town of Clayton Distribution and Collection System Manager Byron W. Poelman at 919-553-1530.
