Sewer overflow in Bentley Drive area

Feb 28, 2011 5:09:00 PM - thestate.com
If you were planning to play in and around the Broad River in Columbia below the diversion dam this afternoon, you might want to change those plans.

Columbia has notified the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control of a sewage overflow near Bentley and River Drive at River Gate Apartments.

Wastewater has entered a tributary to the Broad River near the apartments, according to DHEC.

Wading, kayaking or fishing in the river could expose someone to higher than normal levels of bacteria, especially in the area around the Broad River Road bridge.

City officials said a grease blockage in the collection system line flowing from an apartment complex caused the overflow, and more than 5,000 gallons spilled.
