OLYMPIA, Wash. — Sewage spilled into Olympia’s Percival Creek on Friday night after a tree fell over a pedestrian bridge and onto a pipe, officials said.
The accident happened around 10:30 p.m. The tree damaged the sewer pipe crossing the waterway, causing sewage to spill about a half-mile west of Deschutes Parkway.
Thurston County Public Health said there are no issues with drinking water, but is still advising the public and pets to avoid contact with the water in Percival Creek, Capitol Lake and inner Budd Inlet.
