Sewer overflow in Clemson
For about two hours yesterday afternoon, sewer overflowed near Clemson’s 328 Woodland Way. The city of Clemson reports the overflow was about one thousand gallons or less due to a sewer main blocked by grease. A utilities crew responded, but the overflow reached an un-named creek. The creek passes through the vicinity of Woodland Way, Riggs Drive, Poole Lane, Strode Circle and J-C Park. “We recommend staying clear of the creek for the next week to allow the area to return to its natural state. The Utility crew has cleaned the area and we are currently utilizing fire hydrants flowing into the creek for flushing,” according to the city announcement. Questions should be telephone to the Utilities Department at 653-2046 during normal working hours or Police Dispatch at 624-2000 after hours.
