December 12, 2008
Albany - On Thursday December 11, 2008 the City of Albany experienced strong winds and widespread heavy rainfall in excess of 5" in a 24 hour period. The Public Works Department responded to numerous calls for downed trees and localized flooding.
As the sewer system became surcharged, employees responded to several sewer overflows. Approximately 1,000 gallons of wastewater was released into the storm water pond at West Town and Gordon before crews could respond and an estimated 92,000 gallons of untreated wastewater was released from a manhole into the roadside swale feeding the Percosin drainage canal off of Oakridge Dr.
Sewer crews worked to reduce the overflows by manually cutting back the number of pumps operating upstream of the overflows. Jet-vac crews also worked to contain and retrieve as much flow as possible and return it to the sewer system.
As required by the City's NPDES Permit we have collected water quality samples upstream and downstream of the Percosin canal for analysis, and have provided the appropriate notification to Environmental Health Department. Public Notices have been posted at both locations.
