WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Approximately 1,000 gallons of diluted wastewater overflowed into Greenfield Lake Saturday.

Cape Fear Public Utility Authority spokesman Mike McGill says crews discovered an overflowing manhole in the 1000 block of Cypress Drive around 2 p.m. Saturday.

It took just over an hour for crews to clean and repair the leak, and the incident is currently under investigation.

Because of the relatively small amount of waste spilled, no environmental impact is expected.
