The rupture of a 48-inch sewage main in Hollywood this morning has led
to a mass effort to contain the spill, according to the Sun Sentinel.
“We are currently treating much of what is spilling to the south, trying
to sandbag properties to the west of Rotary Park [that] have been
impacted,” said Greg Turek, interim director of public services for the
city of Hollywood. “We think that within 48 hours we should have it
under control.” Several businesses and organizations have closed due to
the spill, including the Hollywood YMCA. The spill actually woke up one
Hollywood resident. “It’s disgusting,” said Jose Merchan. [Sun
