    Sewage Spills into Florida River Due to Electrical Failure

    (ecmweb.com) Millions of gallons of sewage has flowed into the Ortega River in Florida after an electrical fault caused pumps to turn off during the peak of Hurricane Matthew.

    According to Action News Jax, the failure happened at the master wastewater lift station in Southwest Jacksonville around 2 p.m. this past Sunday. Officials warned people not to swim and fish in the river after at least 5 million gallons of sewage leaked into it.

    The pump was offline for approximately 7 1/2 hours as crews were forced to stand down during high wind conditions. The sewage flowed into the river until the pumps were reset just before midnight.
