Sewage Spills

Through a combination of our regular SWIM water quality monitoring, stormwater inspections, and more, we detect and track sewage spills on a regular basis. Mobile and Baldwin Counties need to consistently invest in and maintain sewer collection systems to decrease the frequency and severity of overflows and accommodate current and future growth. Mobile Baykeeper advocates for more resources to repair and replace damaged and aging sewer infrastructure. We do this by working with utility providers to find solutions to problems associated with sewage collection systems. When utilities won’t work with us, we may use the rule of law to hold them accountable.

We work hard to make sure that citizens are aware of threats to their health and environment. We want to ensure that you can make decisions based on the most up to the minute information to protect the health of yourself and your family. That's why we created the Sewer Spill Explorer in 2016. This tool allows you to review when and where sewer spills occur. We update this map on a weekly basis with information provided by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) and local sewage treatment facility operators.



We rely on both our Patrol team and on citizens like you to report suspected sewage spills. If you suspect a sewage spill, call the nearest utility company right away. You can also call us at 251-433-4229 or click the button below.
