[ARCHIVED] City crews respond to minor sewage spill

For Immediate Release
Date: December 6, 2015

City of Savannah Water Resources crews responded to a minor sewage spill at 9:31 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, at the intersection of Windsor Road and Deerfield Road. An estimated 5,400 gallons spilled before the leak was corrected at 10:25 a.m. Saturday. This is classified as a minor spill under State Environmental Protection Division guidelines.

The spill was caused by a defect in a gravity sanitary sewer pipe, which caused a stoppage and the manhole to overflow into the ditch. Crews shut down the lift station to stop the overflow, repaired the pipe defect and spread lime over the affected area. The ditch was contained, and the stormwater/sewage mix was removed with City vacuum trucks.

Spill notifications were placed at the spill site and at Bells Landing. All regulatory authorities were notified. Public notification is required per State guidelines.
