City of Largo Manhole Overflow - Seton Lane and Edgewater Ln A continuous sanitary sewer overflow from two manholes located at 2350 Seton Lane and 2326 Edgewater Lane; one is flowing into the storm sewer leading to the inter-coastal and the other soaking into the ground.

The cause is not yet known, there is limited access, and crews are attempting to halt the discharge On August 13, 2018 at 7:00 PM, the overflows ceased.
