SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - More than 2,000 gallons of sewage spilled onto a golf course after a contractor struck a force main.

Utility crews responded to a call at the Rolling Green Golf Course on N. Tuttle Avenue where the sewage line had broken.

Crews were able to repair the line and return it to service. Approximately 2,000 gallons of sewage spilled into a grassy area on site; workers were able to recover half of the spill. No sewage leaked into nearby surface waters, officials said.

This is the second incident at the golf course in as many days. The county has reached out to the engineer of record and the contractor to find a way to keep it from happening again and will file a claim to seek reimbursement of costs.
