Good news: the GA-EPD Sewage Spill Reports do not have any spills reported from Valdosta or anywhere else in the Suwannee River Basin during the rains of last weekend.

Plenty of water was coming out of the pipe from Valdosta’s Withlacoochee Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) into the Withlacoochee River yesterday, but it smelled merely mildly like detergent, not that other smell.

You may recall that after Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson came from Florida and spoke to the Valdosta City Council on January 24, 2019, City Manager Mark Barber confirmed Valdosta would be at this SRWMD meeting. Here’s the announcement.
