About 2,000 gallons of untreated wastewater has spilled into Thompson School Creek in Jacksonville.  According to a news release, a contractor was removing culverts Tuesday afternoon when a nearby undocumented line off a wastewater main broke.  The City’s environmental team responded to the spill, installing a boom, which contained about a thousand gallons of wastewater. The incident remains under investigation and review is expected by the State.  The work to remove the culverts is part of a project to restore Thompson School Creek, which is a tributary of Wilson Bay.
