Another 100,000 gallons of wastewater is heading toward White Rock Lake today after sewage overflowed from a golf course in Plano.

Officials in that city are working to contain the spill, which started at Gleneagles Country Club, which abuts the lake-feeding White Rock Creek.

The last time this happened, in late June, it was 10 times worse. That was 1 million gallons, which overflowed 12 miles up creek. The City of Plano managed to contain that spill within a mile of its origin.

It did shut down water activities at White Rock Lake for a weekend as a precaution that time.
