STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- Officials in DeKalb County aren't sure just how many gallons of sewage were released during a major spill in the Stone Mountain area on Wednesday.

The spill was first reported at around 3 p.m. off of Sagewood Circle after a morning of heavy rains across the region. Those storms are thought to be the cause of the spill.

Authorities believe the sewage ultimately flowed into the south fork of Peachtree Creek.  Authorities have not announced an exact time the area was cleared but have decided to wait for the storm to subside which is expected to solve the issue.

Both the Environmental Protection Division and the health department have been notified. Signs have also been posted in the area.
