The discharge has ceased and, by-pass pumping was not used. The spillage was from a manhole, caused by so much torrential down pouring of rain, the treatment plant could not keep up with the excessive flow of water. The untreated domestic spillage was not contained, and did enter a body of water, the Blackwater River. The Water/ Sewer Department disinfected the area of the spill by applying chlorine bleach and Ban-O. Water samples will be collected and the results will be faxed over to Dana Vestal with FL. D.E.P. @ 850-595-8097.
