The city of Georgetown has recovered after 5000 gallons of sewage spilled into a small nearby stream. Officials say the generator at 265 Florence St. malfunctioned the morning of October 12th. Within an hour Palmer Electric Co. fixed the generator and the lift station was back in operation.
Lisa Myler with the GA DNR/EPD was immediately notified of the spill.
The City of Georgetown lost power on October 10 due to damage sustained from Hurricane Michael, according to city officials. City employees used stationary and portable generators to keep the lift stations pumped out.
