Heavy Rain Prompts Sewer Overhaul in Valdosta

Many parts of the nation are experiencing heavier than usual rainfall.  This also means there is a better chance of sewer overflows and leaky pipelines. The City of Valdosta has had its share and is now undergoing a sewer overhaul.  Recently, the amount of rain totaled 7.5 inches causing four manholes to overflow, as well as, 257,000 gallons of wastewater to flow into Sugar Creek.  The manholes overflowed from the Force main and are in the process of being rehabilitated. While the project is underway, it will most likely continue through the summer of next year.   The sewer upgrade will replace a 54″ gravity main sewer that runs along the Withlacoochee River.  This installation comes with the expectation of serving as a deterrent to future spills, if not eliminating them, altogether.  The City also implemented smoke testing and the use of Cured in Place Pipe to assist in lowering the number of overflows.

Interesting facts:

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the world’s busiest passenger airport offering a location that is just a 2-hour flight away from 83 percent of U.S. cities.

The Atlanta Braves are the oldest continually operating professional sports franchise in the country. The team started as the Boston Red Stockings in 1871 before it moved to Atlanta in 1966.
