(KMOV.com) -- Metropolitan Sewer District crews worked Saturday to stop raw sewage from leaking into the Fee Fee Creek in Maryland Heights.

Officials say an estimated 340,000 gallons of sewage has spilled into the creek since a 21-inch line broke on Friday afternoon.

Crews expect to have the leak contained by Saturday night, according to a release.

MSD officials say the leak poses no threat to the public because the creek is not linked to the water supply. Residents are being told to stay out of the creek for the next 24 to 48 hours as repairs continue.

No word yet on what caused the sewer line to break.
