DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – DeKalb County watershed workers are working to repair a massive sewage spill that dumped more than 200,000 gallons of sewage into Snapfinger Creek.

County officials told Channel 2’s Alyssa Hyman that the leak was reported Friday by a neighbor and that it took crews almost 24 hours to cap it.

Hyman said it remains unclear if the leak has been fixed permanently or if the repairs made were a temporary fix.
