Thursday Headlines: Sewage Spill Contaminates River in S.C.

Posted in California, Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, South Carolina, Uncategorized, Virginia at 11:31 am by bengann

In Columbia, South Carolina, a sewage spill is contaminating the rapids on the lower Saluda River, one of the area’s most popular spots to wade and swim. State health officials have warned people to stay out of a five-mile stretch of the river until the pollution is dispersed, as swallowing water or getting it into cuts could lead to illness.

A blockage in a private sewer line caused a 162-gallon sewage spill into the San Diego Bay.

The number of water main breaks in the city of Harrisonburg, Virginia nearly doubled over the past fiscal year. In fiscal 2007, Harrisonburg’s water system sustained 29 breaks. For fiscal 2008, which ended June 30, the number jumped to 47.

A water main break has left 1,800 residents in Greenfield, Illinois under a boil order until further notice.
