Alabama community urged to take caution fishing, avoid recreation after sanitary sewage discharged into area

One Alabama community had to deal with the discharge of more than 80,000 gallons of sanitary sewage after severe weather pummeled the region Saturday.

The Fairhope Water and Wastewater Department and the Baldwin County Health Department reported that approximately 85,500 gallons of sanitary sewage overflow were released into area drainage ditches and storms drains — some leading to Mobile Bay.

The Baldwin County Health Department and the Fairhope Water and Wastewater Department urged residents to exercise caution using this water body for recreational purposes. Also, thoroughly cook any fish or seafood caught nearby and wash hands after handling fish or seafood.

Problems with four lifts station, including power problems, throughout the area, caused the sanitary sewage to be discharged into the area.
