An overflowing sewer clogged by grease caused about 5,000 gallons of untreated wastewater to spill into the Lithia Inn Branch, which eventually runs into the South Fork River, the city of Lincolnton said Friday.

The overflow occurred Thursday evening on U.S. 321 at East Main Street, near old Mohican Mills, city officials said.

“The problem was found very quickly and corrected,” city spokeswoman Laura Morris said.

“The lines are de-greased monthly and the Water Resources Department is investigating further to try to determine what caused excess grease in the line.”
