Pump Station #3424 / Station D Wekiva, 3/18/18 Pump Station 3424 / Station D Wekiva failed due to a power loss caused by a tripped breaker. This allowed the gravity collection system to discharge out of manhole #34240004 onto a paved road surface located on the west right-of-way of Piedmont Wekiwa Road. The overflowed volume flowed into a single storm water inlet box which discharged into a nearby dry storm water retention pond. No recovery could be made as the storm water system was dry and the untreated waste water was rapidly absorbed into the soil inside the dry storm water retention pond. Field Services staff returned the pump station to normal operation. Piedmont-Wekiva Road was washed down, deodorizer applied, and reopened to traffic. Orange County Environmental Protection Division and Florida Department of Environmental Protection have been notified. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 1,000 Gallons Released, 0 Gallons Recovered, 1,000 Gallons not Recovered, and 0 Gallons Discharged to Surface Water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 03/18/2018 18:25 EDT OCU Wastewater Pump Station #3424 / Station D Wekiva 701 Piedmont-Wekiva Rd; Apopka FL; 32703 Orange Eduardo C.

SR 54 and Morris Bridge Road There is a old 2" F/M that was used for the old Cumberline Farms convenience Store along with a couple small stores. This force main was from an old private pump station that tied in to our 12" force main. Neither the force main or the isolation valve were marked onour prints. The lot is now vacant land and is being cleared for road expansion, and they were trenching to add in conduits and the contractor hit the 2" force main. Locates were called in, but nobody knew that the 2" force main had existed there. Arrived on site, and AHOOKS located the isolation valve and stopped the spill. There was a large hole that had already been dug there, containing the spill. We used the vactor to retrieve all liquid from the hole, and then spread lime around the surrounding area, and in the hole. We used 500 gals of potable water to kill the smell. 03/17/2018 22:33 EDT Southeast Wastewater Treatment Facility 6039 Handcart Road; Directions: Permit # FLA012737; Zephyrhills FL; 33544 Pasco James Hircock Environmental Compliance Specialist Jhircock@pascocountyfl.net (813) 235-6189 Environmental Compliance Specialist James Hircock (727) 247-0391 Jhircock@pascocountyfl.net 28.208013 -82.246116 03/17/2018 10:30 EDT No 03/17/2018 11:00 EDT Incident Location
