VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a wastewater treatment plant in south Georgia has resumed normal operations after it was shut down due to flood waters.
WALB-TV reports that crews were able to bring the Withlacoochee Wastewater Treatment Plant in Valdosta back online Sunday afternoon.
Valdosta city officials said power at the plant had been shut down Thursday to prevent damage to equipment and control systems.
The Valdosta Daily Times reports that several roads were reopened over the weekend as the Withlacoochee receded. County officials said Gornto Road and the stretch of U.S. Highway 84 between Quitman and Valdosta have both been cleared for traffic.
Authorities said that while most major thoroughfares had been reopened, some roads remained closed in Brooks and Lowndes County.
