Satsuma reports on Sanitary Sewer Overflow

MOBILE, Ala. — Satsuma Water and Sewer Board has reported on a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) that occurred on June 21. Officials say an equipment malfunction caused the SSO.

The SSO occurred from a manhole near 170 East Maple Avenue. The overflow was absorbed by the ground and did not reach a body of water. The estimated volume is 100 gallons.

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.
