DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — More than 5,000 gallons of untreated wastewater spilled onto a road in Thomasville on Monday.

The 5,400 gallons of wastewater spilled at 719 Railroad Street when a force main pipe split.

Crews were able to contain the spill within two hours of it being reported, but some of the wastewater spilled into a tributary to Jimmy Creek in the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Basin.

Crews spent 15 hours repairing the section of the force main that split.
