On September 23, 2018, a sanitary sewer overflow occurred near the Winn Dixie on Highway 78 due to a leak in the forcemain caused by deteriorated customer valve.  The deteriorated area on the customer valve was replaced.  The overflow reached a pond area, where Oxford personnel created a dam and collected the wastewater to take to the treatment plant.  Samples have been taken to ensure there is no further impact to the environment.
