Sewage spills in the Suwannee River Basin 2015-2018

Update 2019-01-25: Added an HTML table of all spills in the Suwannee River Basin in Georgia since the beginning of 2015.

WWALS Science Committee Chair Tom Potter made this committee report to the WWALS Quarterly Board Meeting of January 2019:

The Science Committee has focused on monitoring sewage spills from Municipalities in the region. The primary data is the online database provide by the GA EPD. The agency regularly compiles spill volume, date, and, location across the state and posts the information on-line.

2015-2018 Valdosta sewage spills, Spills

WWALS played a central role in convincing EPD to provide this data in a timely manner and has regularly posted spill data on the WWALS website, wwals.net/issues/vww/ga-spills/. This a substantial improvement over prior reporting systems and is contributing to timely reporting of conditions that may adversely impact water quality and recreational uses of streams and rivers.

The following graph summarizes reported spill data in Quitman, Tifton and Valdosta and rainfall in Dec. 2018. The very large amount of rainfall (more than 15 in for the month), particularly early in the month, contributed to hydraulic overload and spills in all three cities. The spill volume in Valdosta (nearly 4.5 million gallons) was by far the largest and indicates the City continues to have problems in controlling spills during extreme rainfall events. Reports of overflowing “manholes” on roads within the City indicates that additional work is needed to upgrade the old sewage collection system including replacing and or lining old pipes to prevent rainwater infiltration.

Rain Inches 15.4
Gallons Spilled
Valdosta > 4,491,265
Tifton > 120,000
Quitman > 121600

Update 2019-01-27: Apparently Tom’s total for Valdosta was low, because not all the data was in when he wrote that report. The real total for Valdosta in December 2018 appears to be 6,273,595 gallons of raw sewage.

I may mention this tonight at the Valdosta City Council meeting, 5:30 PM, Council Chambers, 2nd Floor, Valdosta City Hall, 216 East Central Avenue, Valdosta, GA 31601.

Table

I did pass out a printed copy last night, and I mentioned it to the Valdosta City Council. Below is an HTML table version of not only the Valdosta data, but also of every spill in the Suwannee River Basin in Georgia that was reported to GA-EPD since the beginning of 2015.
