Seymour Johnson AFB experienced a sanitary sewer overflow totaling approximately 3,600 gallons from a manhole in the base housing area on Monday, January 3, 2022. This manhole overflow was discovered at 9:30 am. The spill was the result of blockage in a sewer line. Seymour Johnson is currently working to resolve issues with base personnel disposing of baby/hand wipes (and other non-disposable items) that caused  the sewer collection system to have the blockage. The base is currently working to resolve sewer line issues and will be providing base housing residents with education brochures informing them of things not to dispose of down the sewer drain.
