The County experienced a ruptured sanitary sewer force main located on Mars Hill Road at approximately 11:00 a.m., Friday, August 21, 2015. As a result of the break, an estimated 5,500 gallons of wastewater flowed into Barber Creek.
In accordance with State regulations, we immediately notified Georgia EPD and began testing the downstream water quality for pH, temperature, fecal coliform and dissolved oxygen. Signs were placed at Barber Creek notifying the public of the spill. The initial test results show no adverse effects to the water quality. EPD is in receipt of these results, and in accordance with State and local regulations, no additional testing is required.

On Friday, August 7, 2015, the Keep Oconee County Beautiful Commission will mark 25 years of service to Oconee County, Georgia with a special celebration ~ 6 pm at the Oconee County Civic Center.
