#2 Diesel Fuel Spill from Underground Piping On 11/13/2017, a pressure test was performed on the underground section of unregulated #2 diesel piping between the fuel forwarding skid and the combustion turbine units. The pressure test failed. The testing contractor determined that approximately 75 gallons of oil was unaccounted for. No free product was observed and it could not be determined if a discharge was made. American Compliance Technologies (ACT) was contracted to perform oil vapor analysis (OVA) sampling to determine if there was a leak in the pipe. Central Florida Locating (CFL) was contracted to perform ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and utility location so that ACT could safely perform their work. CFL mobilized on 11/16/2017, ACT mobilized on 11/20/2017. On 11/20/2017 at approximately 2:00 pm CFL was using a vacuum truck to excavate to the fuel oil piping. CFL visually identified diesel fuel slowly leaking from an underground pipe to the soil and ACT confirmed this. The Spill and Release Emergency Response Plan was activated on 11/20/2017 at 2:00 pm, all notifications were made per the procedure. The state watch office was called at approximately 3:00 pm in accordance with 62-780.210, F.A.C., and a discharge report form will be filed with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection on 11/21/2017. SWS vacuumed the remaining oil from the pipe on 11/21/2017. CFL will perform additional utility locates beginning on 11/27/2017 and ACT will perform sampling once utility locates are complete to determine the size of the discharge and will perform clean-up activities as necessary. The spill is located in a central area of the site and is not near the property line, no oil has left the site or impacted surface water. 11/21/2017 13:13 EST Duke Energy DeBary Station 176 West Highbanks Road; Directions: From I-4, 17/92 North the turn left onto West Highbanks Road.
