North East Water staff have cleaned up a small sewage spill caused by wet wipes that blocked a sewer main in Wodonga.

The blockage was rectified, with operations crews also flushing and disinfecting the spill location.

People are advised to avoid the affected area for several days, and abide by nearby barricading and signage.
