City crews respond to minor sewage spill
SAVANNAH (April 8) – City of Savannah Sewer Conveyance staff responded to a minor sewage spill today at 1724 E. 33rd Street in Savannah.

This is classified as a minor spill under State Environmental Protection Division guidelines. Any spill under 10,000 gallons is considered a minor spill.
Spill notification is being made via news release and area signage. All agencies (Georgia Environmental Protection Division, Health Department and the City of Savannah Office of Marketing and Communications) were notified per state guidelines.
