County spokesman Andrew Cauthen said permanent repairs are being developed to address last week's spill of 6.4 million gallons of raw sewage at Snapfinger Creek in Lithonia.

“We've stopped the spill, and mitigated the situation, but we've got to basically design a new system for that location,” Cauthen said.
