GREENSBORO, N.C. — City of Greensboro officials reported Wednesday that approximately 15,000 gallons of untreated wastewater spilled from a sewer main in Greensboro and into North Buffalo Creek.

The spill occurred when a tree fell and hit a section of pipeline, causing the wastewater to flow for over two hours Tuesday.

The collapsed pipeline was replaced and several fire hydrants were opened for fresh water to flush the area.
