Sewage Spill Notification

MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. --

The 23d Civil Engineer Squadron was notified of a sewage leak in the vicinity of a wastewater lift station at Building 769 on Moody Air Force Base, Aug. 6, 2019 at approximately 1 p.m. After assessment, it is suspected the leak began 2-3 days prior to 23 CES receiving the notification and had resulted in no more than 3,000 gallons spilled into an unnamed tributary that flows to Mission Lake within the boundaries of Moody AFB.

The leak originated from a broken pipe departing the lift station. Upon notification, the lift station was immediately turned off, pumping equipment was used to clean up the spill and the area of the broken pipe was then treated with lime to disinfect. Temporary repairs have been made and the station has been placed back in service while materials are on order for a permanent repair with an estimated completion date of Aug. 23, 2019.
