Heavy rains result in wastewater spill
 
On Thursday, August 2, 2018, the City of Reidsville experienced an overflow of untreated wastewater from its sanitary sewer lines along the Jackson Street to Davis Street outfall and near Spring Street.
 
City officials explained that the overflow resulted from unusually heavy flows caused by flooding. The spills lasted approximately one hour, ending at 10:15 a.m. An estimated 7,500 gallons entered a tributary of Troublesome Creek. Both areas were inspected, and no lasting effects are expected.
