Spill Notice Lift Station 82
On the morning of 12/4/18, from 10:30 AM to 11:40 AM the City of Albany experienced a sanitary sewer overflow upstream of Lift Station 82 due to high flows and clogging of the pumps at the station. An estimated 17,640 gallons of sewage was discharged into the Percosin Canal system near the 2100 block of West Oakridge Dr. As soon as the overflow was discovered, crews responded and were able to control the overflow.
As a precaution, the public is advised to avoid contact with water in the City canal for the next 30 days. No City of Albany drinking water systems were affected.
