SWWRF Filter Sweep Line Temporary pipe installed by contractor at SWWRF 3800 54th Av. S. St. Petersburg broke and discharged an estimated 5,000 gallons of fully treated and disinfected reclaimed water. All water contained on site and in the excavation where work was being performed. Dewatering activity pumped the water out of the hole. Contractor made repairs and secured site.

N. Hiawassee Rd, Force Main, 12-6-18 The untreated wastewater discharge was caused by the failure of a twenty-four inch ductile iron force main. The discharge affected paved and unpaved surfaces along the west right-of-way of North Hiawassee Road and flowed down grade entering an adjacent storm water inlet box. The storm water system in this area discharges into a retention pond located approximately 1,700 feet north of the failure point along the east side of the North Hiawassee Road. Field Services staff have installed a pump near the pond to begin recovering the discharge. The pump will be allowed to run until a minimum of five time the discharge volume is recovered or more. A total recovery volume will be provided in the follow-up OCU Overflow report form. Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Orange County Environmental Protection Division have been contacted and informed of the situation at this time. Additionally Public Notice of Pollution Signs have been deployed around the retention pond. The force main has been returned to normal operation and impacted surfaces near the failure point have been washed down and deodorized. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 200,000 gallons released, 164,000 - Ongoing gallons recovered, 36,000 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 12/07/2018 17:28 EST OCU Wastewater Force Main System N. Hiawassee Road; Directions: Near Address N.

Behind 7402 S 78th St in the TECO easement On 12/06/18 at 8:00AM received a call from Plant Operations stating that they were seeing an increase in reclaimed water discharge from the Falkenburg AWWTP. Utilities Maintenance personnel were dispatched to drive the reclaimed water main easement to verify if the reclaimed water main was leaking. The leak was located along the TECO easement behind 7402 S 78th St at 9:30AM. The valves north and south of the break were located and isolated stopping the overflow at 10:15AM. The overflow has been estimated at 5.4 million gallons. Preliminary calculations have been computed to estimate the overflow total but more research into SCADA trends and exact time of event occurrence will determine the final overflow calculations. The reclaimed water that overflowed is highly treated advanced wastewater that is suitable for discharge onto lawns/ground for irrigation purposes. Regulatory Agency notification was made to the State Warning Point via phone at 2:35PM (incident # 2018-7482), DEP via voicemail at 2:38PM and EPC via phone at 2:41PM on 11/27/18.
