The Town Of Smithfield had a sewer spill on Thursday night behind 302 Sunset Avenue on the sanitary sewer outfall line. Approximately 13,000 gallons of sanitary sewer was displaced onto the ground and some into the Neuse River.  This was brought to our attention at 2:00am and our crews quickly mobilized to maintain and clean up the spill. The water/sewer department cleaned up the spill with machines and applied pelletized lime and wheat straw to the spill site. The State of North Carolina was also formally notified of the spill.
