Rock Creek Trail closed after spill Tuesday


A sewage spill on private property has prompted a warning for parents and pet owners to keep children and animals off the Rock Creek Trail and out of the wetlands of Rock Creek south of Evergreen Parkway.

Crews from the Hillsboro Public Works Department responded to the scene and began working to stop the sewage flow. The flow was halted at 1:18 p.m.

The cause of the overflow was tree root incursion into the line. There is no estimate of the amount of sewage spilled.
