Neighbors warn of raw sewage in Hoover creek

HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — Jefferson County contractors have redirected most of the raw sewage flowing into a Hoover creek. It’s coming from a sewer line that was damaged in last week’s flooding.

The county manager’s office says 99 percent of the sewage is passing through temporary bypasses.

Teams are working on getting the remaining sewage out of the water. Meanwhile, neighbors are making sure families know to stay out of the creek.

They’ve posted hand-made warning signs throughout the neighborhood. They hope the county will be able to come up with a permanent solution to the problem.
