Spill Turns River Red

August 21, 2014

ST. MARYS — A portion of the St. Marys River turned red on Thursday.

St. Marys Safety-Service Director Greg Foxhoven said an equipment failure at an industrial account on McKinley Road caused approximately 55 gallons of food grade red dye to be sent into the wastewater system of the city of St. Marys. After passing through the city's system, the water was then discharged into the St. Marys River — as is typical with the finished water at the facility.

The sentence was identical to the one handed down to codefendant Bryant Rhoades last week.
