Bad Nankin, Withlacoochee River 2020-12-28

Update 2021-01-04: Valdosta Mildred Street Sewage Spill, Alapaha River Basin 2021-01-02.

Valdosta got bad results at Nankin Boat Ramp for Monday (yesterday). Not as bad as the WWALS results for Friday, but bad enough. I’d avoid the Withlacoochee River downstream for now. We did get a good reading for Sunday upstream on the Suwannee River, though.

Thanks to Valdosta PIO Ashlyn Johnson for getting the Valdosta downstream results for yesterday published today. Also in the Valdosta update were results for last Monday and Wednesday. GA 133 did improve. We don’t yet know what it or US 84 or US 41 were like yesterday.

For context and the entire WWALS composite spreadsheet of Georgia and Florida water quality results, rainfall, and spills, see:

Plus, Suzy Hall for WWALS got good results at Gibson Park Boat Ramp on the Suwannee River for Saturday. Maybe the Gibson Park jinx is lifted.

Also note the WWALS Knights Ferry Friday result is corrected to 8,166 cfu/100 mL. My bad for writing it as TNTC before. So, not too high to count, just really bad. Better Monday, though, according to Valdosta’s results.

Maybe we’ll have better news in further tests.
