Integra Water reports Sanitary Sewer Overflow

MOBILE, Ala. — Integra Water Creola responded to a Sanitary Sewer Overflow on November 16 from a ditch off Creola Axis Loop North. Approximately 1,700 gallons of wastewater overflowed and was absorbed by the ground.

According to a report to the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, a customer had called Integra Water Creola about a possible break in the line. It was identified that a third party caused the break. Integra crews shut down the valves to stop the flow through the line.

Dr. Kevin P. 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.
