Northport Sewage Spill Now at 400,000 gallons
We are now told that more than 400,000 gallons of raw sewage overflowed from pumping stations in Northport last weekend. This is 4 times greater than the 100,000 they city had originally said dumped into 4 different creeks and rivers including the big one, the ole Black Warrior. This crisis, according to the Tuscaloosa News, could cost the city up to $125,000 in fines.
So many questions...
1. Why wasn't the public informed in a responsible way? (Facebook- not good enough)
2. How could the damage now be 4 times greater than the city announced on Tuesday?
3. Will corrective measures be taken to those in charge of this irresponsible health crisis?
4. How much damage will occur in these contaminated bodies of water?
