Maryland Heights (KSDK) --Crews with the Metropolitan Sewer have completed a clean up in Maryland Heights after a sewer line broke sending 343,000 gallons of raw sewage into Fee Fee Creek.

The 21-inch sewer line broke near the 100 block of Midland Friday afternoon. It's not clear what caused the break.

The leak has stopped, but crews are still repairing the line and cleaning up the spill.

A spokesperson with MSD says there is no threat to the water supply, but is asking everyone to stay away from the creek for the next couple of days until crews finish repairs.

The sewer line break was reported to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, which is required by law.
