HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A force main has been repaired after a sewer spill caused partial blockage on Highway 707 on Monday, according to Grand Strand Water Authority.

The larger-sized pipeline, which carries waste water, was damaged, causing the spill, said Christy Everett with GSWS communications.

Clean-up crews worked through the night Monday to make the repairs and clean up.

GSWS has a contractor, under SCDOT supervision, making repairs to Highway 707, since a portion of the road had to be cut out for the repairs Monday.

Repairs are expected to be complete Tuesday.

Everett said an investigation has begun to determine the amount of spilled waste water and cause for the damaged pipeline.
