JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Officials in Jacksonville say there have been no reports of fish kills after thousands of gallons of sewage spilled last weekend.
The Jacksonville Daily News reported (http://bit.ly/MImoEi) that city officials on Tuesday afternoon estimated that up to 40,000 gallons of untreated wastewater could have escaped into Mill Creek.
Officials think vandals disconnected an air release valve early Saturday.
A city engineer's estimate of more than 39,000 gallons is considerably more than an estimate of 15,000 gallons released by staff members of the wastewater department.
The Jacksonville Police Department is searching for those responsible for the leak.
Officials say tests have shown no sign of biological effects from the leak.
