5,000 Gallons Of Sewage Enters Creek in Jacksonville

5,000 gallons of wastewater has spilled into a creek in Jacksonville, following more than an inch and a half of rain on Tuesday.  The City’s Maintenance and Utilities Superintendent Pete Deaver was at the site Thursday afternoon testing the water.

“There is nothing else we can do.  The rain water helps it dilute the affluent that reaches the waters.  We have made some repairs to the man hole where the overflow occurred.”
