Leak at Accokeek sewage treatment plant
There’s a leak at a sewage treatment plant in Accokeek, but the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission says none of the raw sewage is escaping into rivers or streams.
The problem started Saturday morning when a contractor hit a pressure line at the Piscataway Wastewater Treatment Plant, causing raw sewage to flow at about 300 gallons per minute.
The WSSC says the sewage is being contained and re-pumped into the plant’s raw wastewater pumping station. The utility is evaluating bypass and repair methods.
