ADEM reports on Sanitary Sewer Overflow at University of Mobile

MOBILE, Ala. — The Alabama Department of Emergency Management has reported on a Sanitary Sewer Overflow that occurred March 22 on the University of Mobile campus. The cause of the discharge is reported to have been the downstream line having a partial blockage of sanitary wipes and grease.

The discharge took place north-northeast of the School of Christian Studies. An estimated 3,000 gallons of wastewater were absorbed by the ground.

Dr. Kevin Philip Michaels, Health Officer for Mobile County, advises area residents to take precautions when coming into contact with any standing water that may have accumulated as a result of this overflow. Those who have come into direct contact with untreated sewage are advised to wash their hands and clothing thoroughly.
