WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The estimated volume of a waste water spill on 23rd Street in Wilmington is 360 gallons, according to CFPUA spokesperson Carey Ricks.
CFPUA crews responded to a break in the vicinity of 23rd Street and MLK Parkway, according to a news release. Southbound traffic traveling on 23rd Street, from MLK Parkway, towards Market Street will be shifted to one lane while crews assess the situation and facilitate repairs.
The waste water spill is occurring along a portion of a 30-inch force main that runs parallel to 23rd Street and feeds into Pump Station 10, north of Screen Gems Studio, Ricks said.
City of Wilmington crews that were mowing the right of way in the area reportedly alerted the CFPUA of the spill.
It is unclear at this time how long the traffic shift will take place.
