MT. LAUREL, N.J.- WTXF - The sewer main in Mount Laurel is back in service Thursday after a major sewer line break Wednesday.
According to Mount Laurel police, crews worked continuously for 24 hours to restore service, finally doing so at 3 a.m.
"Sewage from which normally flows thru the leaking pipe (about 3 million gallons per day) was continuously hauled by over a dozen trucks until the repair was completed," police said. "Despite this effort, a spill occurred in the Ramblewood section of town; exact quantity is unknown at this time. Spill location will be mitigated by MUA crews during daylight hours."
