Public Alert  

On Saturday, 1/14/2023, at approximately 8:00 AM, a spill occurred in a wooded area near highway 83 North on private property inside the City limits of Madison. The spill was estimated to be 25-30,000 gallons of untreated water which entered Four Mile Branch. The spill was caused by a tree falling across an eight-inch sewer main which spans the creek. The line was promptly repaired by the City of Madison Utility Department employees. Samples were taken at the time of the spill and stream monitoring will continue for the next twelve months, to comply with Rules and Regulations for water Quality Control, Chapter 391-3-6. “Emergency Actions.”

Due to the current volume of water in Four Mile Branch and the amount of discharge entering the waterway, there should be no adverse effects resulting from the spill.

For further information regarding this alert, please call Wayne Ghann, 706-342-7401.
