Anyone living in the affected areas should exercise caution. There could be health risks associated with contaminated water and areas adjacent to water, so the City of Tuscaloosa advises people to avoid contaminated water and areas. Signage is in place at all affected sites.

This has no impact on tap water because the water and waste water systems are two completely different systems.

In an effort to increase transparency, the City of Tuscaloosa notifies residents and the media of all spills, regardless of cause or severity. The city of Tuscaloosa treats more than 6.5 billion gallons of wastewater annually through its treatment plant and less than 0.03% of that volume was lost through sanitary sewer overflows in its collection system over the past three years.
