A small spill of raw sewage dumped into Wolf Creek on Saturday was cleaned up by city of Grass Valley crews.

About 120 to 600 gallons of raw effluent spilled out of a manhole on the 300 block of Sutton Way due to a blocked sewer main, Kurtis Zumwalt of the Nevada County Environmental Health Department said.

The sewage spilled into a storm drain and then into Wolf Creek, Zumwalt said.

A city truck and crew unplugged the main at about noon and cleaned up the area, he added.
