SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. — Wastewater was spilt into a nearby creek after a pump at the Lawson Fork Pump Station broke, according to WYFF 4 News.
The broken pump is used to move wastewater from the pump station to the Fairforest Reclaimed Water Treatment Facility, noted the article.
The pump malfunction led to 112,500 gallons being overflowed into the Lawson Fork Creek.
The pump was quickly returned to operation and the wastewater that spilled into the creek did not contain solid material because it was removed by pump station equipment before being discharged, stated the article.
As a precautionary measure, signs will be posted along parts of the creek where the overflow took place.
