Okaloosa County Water & Sewer experienced a sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) at the 4th Avenue Lift Station, which has an actual address of 221WS Country Club Road, Shalimar, FL.
This particular SSO was due to a power outage and inundation of rainwater/groundwater from Hurricane Sally, according to the county.
The estimated spill volume is 8,000 gallons from last night.
The sanitary sewer overflowed from the lift station into a nearby unnamed creek which flows into Lake Lorraine, off of Choctawhatchee Bay.
The lift station has since been restored to normal operations, commercial power is on, and clean-up is in progress.
