Heavy Rains Cause Wastewater Overflows - June 3, 2024

Jun 4th, 2024


Mobile Area Water and Sewer System (MAWSS) is currently experiencing wastewater overflows, as a result of heavy rains.  They are being monitored. The waterways affected are Eslava Creek and Three Mile Creek.  A list of the overflow locations and volumes will be provided once all overflows have stopped.


MAWSS sewer system is designed to collect and convey wastewater to a MAWSS wastewater treatment plant. During heavy rains, storm water infiltrates and inundates aging sewer lines causing manholes to overflow.  Health department precautions regarding contact with impacted waters and seafood preparation should be followed.
