Pompano Beach Sewage Spill
Pompano Beach, Forida – The Pompano Beach sewage spill was caused when a construction crew working for the Department of Transportation ruptured a 42-inch pressurized main sewer line at Northwest 15th Street earlier this month. The spill sent raw sewage south and east toward the Intracoastal, killing many fish and wildlife that call the canals home.
Though the pipe has since been fixed, the enormous stinky mess remains. On Wednesday, officials said they have placed more than 70 aerators into the water to provide oxygen to help filter the water and mitigate the smell. Crews in boats have also been removing larger debris from the canals.
