Line break spurs sewage spill in Lexington

Mar 14, 2011 5:43:00 PM - thestate.com
A break in an underground trunk line at 201 West Main St. in Lexington led to a sewage spill Monday afternoon.

Lexington officials warned people to avoid the water in Twelve Mile Creek from West Main Street to the Old Mill Pond Monday afternoon. Portions of that stream that roll through Virginia Hylton Park were roped off.

The exact volume of the spill wasn’t immediately available. Town officials estimated the broken pipe was leaking 15 gallons per minute. That would translate to 21,600 gallons per day, but the pipe was repaired in less than 24 hours.
