Tifton spilled again into Agrirama Lake 2019-01-06

Yet again into Agrirama Lake, Tifton spilled 8,500 gallons of raw sewage yesterday (Sunday, January 6, 2019). And, finally, a number of gallons Valdosta spilled from its Withlacoochee Wastewater Treatment Plant back on December 15, 2018.

Tifton (and Dekalb, Fulton, and Clayton Counties), Spreadsheet

As you can see, cities in the Atlanta Metro Area spilled more. And in the table below you can see many more of them spilled.

Not that that makes Tifton’s spill any better.

There’s no update in this spreadsheet today from GA-EPD on how many gallons Quitman spilled Thursday.

The good news: no reported spilils from Valdosta. The not so good news: that WWTP spill starting December 15, 2018 was of 1,814,000 gallons.
