Wastewater Leaks Into Grimes County Creek

By  | 

Public Works officials in Navasota have completed clean-up efforts from hundreds of thousands of gallons of wastewater that ran into a local creek Monday.

The leak happened at the Navasota Wastewater Treatment Plant. According to the city, a power supply switch was turned off causing about 350,000 gallons to accidentally leak into Cedar Creek.

They say so far there has not been any damage to the wildlife in the creek, but additional water sample tests are underway.

This is the second leak this year from the plant. In April, 150,000 gallons leaked from the treatment plant into the creek, but the city says that leak was caused by a different problem.
