Sewage Spill Investigation

W&M conducted a sewage spill investigation in Fort Worth, TX for a national insurance firm. A landowner claimed that a sanitary sewer in the neighborhood was constructed incorrectly resulting in a discharge of sewage. W&M collected soil samples at the spill site and confirmed that there was a release of sewage containing eleveate levels of E coli (Escherichia coli). There was no direct exposure to the landowners and steps were taken to remediate the problem.
