Forsyth County reports 19,000-gallon sewer spill into Daves Creek
Sewer spill

Forsyth County officials said about 19,000 gallons of sewage spilled into Daves Creek on Saturday, Jan. 1 due to a blocked gravity line.

In a news release sent on Monday, Jan. 3, officials said the spill was discovered at 2512 Daves Creek Drive near the intersection with Daves Creek Road and was reportedly caused by a blockage in the line caused by the buildup of grease, rags and gravel.

The ground affected by the spill has been cleaned and lined, and the stream will be monitored for a year.

The release said the incident has been reported to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division and “Forsyth County is taking all necessary precautions and complying with EPD guidelines.”
