A contractor working near the entrance of Regatta Bay accidentally struck a main sewer line, causing 400 gallons of raw sewage to escape.

According to a notice from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the break occurred just before 5 p.m. on April 24.

Crews arrived to repair the pipe and put lime on the sewage, which did not enter any waterways, the notice said.

The area was cleaned up by 8:15 p.m.
