Big Spring Cleaning Up Sewer Spill On Howard County Land 1/14/14
January 14th, 2014
Big Spring, Tx
Big Spring Public Works Director Johnny Womack says they surveyed land in Howard County and began the clean up process, where sewer water was running for over a week. The leak was caused from a back up in a sewer pipe from a prison. Womack says inmates frequently flush sheets, clothes and other debris down toilets, which eventually cause back ups. He says they began removing soil and will continue the clean up process if necessary.
