LS021918 At approximately 0928 on Monday, February 19, 2018, MCUD Lift Stations staff were called out to a reported manhole overflow near lift station RTU 602 at 7035 Honeysuckle Trail in Bradenton. Upon arrival, staff noted that the telemetry control unit for the lift station had been disabled, causing the station's pumps to shut down, and thereby causing several upstream manholes (2354, 2355, 2356 and 2374) to overflow. By 0946, the station's pumps were manually re-engaged, causing the overflow to cease; the estimated quantity of wastewater discharged was 3600 gallons. MCUD staff have been dispatched to collect analytical samples for microbiology analysis from a stormwater pond to the north of the discharge locations, although it is unclear whether the discharged wastewater was able to reach the pond. 02/20/2018 09:00 EST FLA012618/Southeast Water Reclamation Facility 3331 Lena Road; Bradenton FL; 34211 Manatee Andre Rachmaninoff Wastewater Compliance Superintendent andre.rachmaninoff@mymanatee.org (941) 792-8811 Owner Representative Steve Nail (941) 792-8811 steve.nail@mymanatee.org 27.414435 82.423398 02/19/2018 09:00 EST No 02/19/2018 09:45 EST N Incident Location
