Hurricane Michael has caused another major problem – a wastewater spill into Indian Creek in Douglas.


According to a press release issued by the City of Douglas, the City of Douglas Wastewater Treatment Plant has reported a major spill of wastewater that occurred upstream of Indian Creek. The spill began on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018, at 12:30 a.m. and lasted until approximately 5 a.m. The spill occurred at the lift station near Richey Lane. The cause of the spill was a downed power line due to winds from Hurricane Michael. The spill totaled approximately 26,000 gallons.


As a precaution, it is recommended that the public have no contact with the affected stream water until after Oct. 25, 2018. City of Douglas technicians will be sampling the waterway both upstream and downstream of the spill to ensure that the water quality has not been adversely affected. Sampling will be conducted for dissolved oxygen concentration, fecal coli-form bacteria, pH, and temperature. For more information, please contact Kevin Davis, Project Manager, at 912- 389-3444.
