DeKalb County officials are working to contain a sewer spill at Snapfinger Creek, the second spill reported within the last two weeks.

On Aug. 17, the county reported a spill  in the tributary that feeds into Nancy Creek near Mill Creek Road in Brookhaven. That spill has been contained.

The latest spill occurred in unincorporated Lithonia.

“The spill, near Eagle’s Beek Circle, Lithonia, was discovered by Department of Watershed Management workers on a 48-inch creek crossing just north of the Snapfinger Wastewater Treatment Plant,” the announcement from DeKalb County says. “County workers located the spill by tracking high bacteria counts in the area. Residents in this area are warned to avoid the spill site and keep their pets from the waterway until further notice. The spill does not affect drinking water. The Georgia Environmental Protection Division has been notified.”
