Forsyth County News

About 2,400 gallons of sewage reportedly spilled into a tributary of Dick Creek in south Forsyth on Thursday night.

The Forsyth County Department of Water and Sewer responded to a resident’s call about water bubbling out of a manhole at the pump station in the Stonebridge subdivision off of Peachtree Parkway, south of Laurel Springs Parkway.

Staff who arrived about 9:45 p.m. repaired a broken hose on the air bubbler, according to the department.

A spill of less than 10,000 gallons is considered minor by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division.

As required, the county cleaned and limed the area, as well as posted signs and set up stream monitoring, according to the department.

The spill is the first reported this year in the county.
