Test Results in From Oxford Sewage Spill

Posted August 20, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Results from tests on a creek where raw sewage flowed this past weekend are back.

The water quality tests done near Oxford found dissolved oxygen readings extremely low in Coon Creek. That's where hundreds of fish were killed after over one million gallons of untreated sewage spilled into the waterway. A malfunction caused the sewage to back-up at the town's main lift station.
