PANAMA CITY SEWAGE SPILL

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection says nearly 11,000 gallons of wastewater that spilled into St. Andrews Bay on Wednesday from a broken sewer main has been cleaned up as crews prepare for final repairs. During the past four months, Panama City has reported five spills at Fourth Street and Government Avenue. City crews worked this week to create a detour for the wastewater flow in preparation for repairs to be made to the problem sewage main. City of Panama City Utilities Manager Robert Bush said he was uncertain what caused the break.
