Video: Raw sewage in Fourpole Creek

Aug. 09, 2012 @ 08:29 AM

The Hun­tington Sanitary Board will seal off a pipe that was the cause for a raw sewage spill in Fourpole Creek last weekend along the Ritter Park walking trail. The spill was first detected Sat­urday morning by John Bicknell, a Southside resident who was taking his daily walk on the trail when he saw a plume of black sewage. Bicknell took pictures and vid­eos of the spill and sent them to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.
