      Sewer line overflows into Crane Creek

      Columbia city officials say they've experienced a sewer overflow at the Crane Creek Estates subdivision.

      The Wastewater Maintenance Division found the overflow Thursday afternoon near the 200 block of Scioto Drive.

      Apparently, a grease blockage caused the back-up in the collection system line forcing the water into the Crane Creek.

      This isn't the first time residents in the area have seen water problems.
