Clemson Sewer overflows Again

Massive amounts of rainfall this week in Clemson has caused another sewer to overflow and this time the sewage reached a local lake. The Utilities Department for the City of Clemson reports the No. 9 pump station off Mountain View Lane overflowed between 2:15pm and 5:30pm yesterday.  The overflow was approximately 500 gallons. The sewage did reach Lake Hartwell near Mountain View Lane. The City of Clemson Utilities Department recommends staying clear of the lake for the next week to allow the area to return to its natural state. The City of Clemson apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.
