Posted June 20, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Kinston reported it this time, but the city is still in trouble.

More than a thousand gallons of raw sewage spilled into a creek there Thursday. That creek feeds the Neuse River.

The SBI is already investigating four unreported sewage spills in Kinston over the last year.

The city may have to pay fines of more than $80,000.
