Stones and wood dropped into a manhole led to an estimated 1,350 gallons of wastewater overflowing Wednesday morning near the 500 block of Fumagalli Drive, officials in Cary said.

The spill happened at about 10:30 a.m., sending waste into an unnamed tributary of Panther Creek.

No fish kill was observed.

Crews cleared the blockage by 11:15 a.m., but cleanup will continue through Thursday.
