Valdosta, Georgia -June 26,2012

Since the overflow was discovered at a point within 100 feet of Sugar Creek, there is a probability that some of the overflow entered the creek behind Meadowbrook Drive. Signs warning of the spill have been placed at the spill location and downstream public access points. The area of the spill will be cleaned and treated with a bleach solution for disinfection.

As a result there is a possibility of increased levels of bacteria associated with the spill and as a precaution the public should avoid contact with Sugar Creek downstream of the spill location. Please direct any questions concerning this spill to Environmental Manager John Waite at (229) 259-3592 or jwaite@valdostacity.com.
