ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - Officials say it will take some time to clean up the mess after a sewer line broke in Anderson City Hall this week.

Multiple media outlets reported the line broke around 3 p.m. Monday and spilled sewage into the city court administrative office and soaked the carpets of the city judge and part of the courtroom.

City Manager John Moore said the city’s courtroom has been moved temporarily to city council chambers. Officials say records in the city court office are safe.

The smell had prompted officials to close the court offices Monday.

City hall reopened for normal business hours Tuesday.

Moore said cleaning up the court offices will take some time.

City offices are closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
