Sewage Spill at Phoenix Lake

The Tuolumne Utilities District says 1000 gallons of raw sewage leaked into Phoenix Lake early this morning.

TUD General Manager Tim McCollough says none of the polluted water made it´s way to the Sonora Water Treatment Plant. He says workers were able to divert the water around the area affected by the spill.

McCollough says the leak happened around 3:30 a.m. and was shut off less that two hours later.

The sewage leaked from a line along Phoenix Lake Road near Glory Lane.
