MAWSS reports on another Sanitary Sewer Overflow
MOBILE, Ala. — Mobile Area Water & Sewer System (MAWSS) has responded to a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) caused by a third party. Approximately 336 gallons of wastewater overflowed on January 11 at 7329 Pierson Drive because of a break on a low-pressure force main.
The wastewater was reclaimed. No wastewater reached a body of water. MAWSS crews have repaired the break.
Dr. Bernard H. Eichold II, 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.
