Two manholes are spewing sewage next to Baytree Road and Sheri Run, upstream from Lake Sheri and the Withlacoochee River.
Couple of WWALS members went to see Valdosta’s decade-old trash trap on Baytree Road
at Sheri Run, and found this sewage spill about 5:20 PM today, Saturday, July
8, 9, 2022.
Yes, they did report it to Valdosta Utilities.
Hear them gag at the smell:
And sewage erupted again:
The location is highlighted on this map, upstream of Sheri Run and Lake Sheri and the Withlacoochee River, upstream of the future site of Troupville River Camp.
Thanks for the report, Bobby McKenzie and Russell Allen McBride.
