Alico Pass and Las Flores Via Hunters Ridge ARV Spill Today 11-10-17 at 2:25 PM my crew and I arrived at the intersection of Alico Pass and Las Flores Via in hunters Ridge for an ARV Break. Something struck the ARV box and broke it at the 2¿ brake away fitting. We were able to close the 2¿ ball valve and stop the spill. Volume of spill was approx. 2,500 gallons. We spread 100 LBS of lime and used 1,500 gallons of fresh water to wash down the road. Waste Water from break ran down the road approx. 150 feet and into a storm culvert. The storm drain flows across the street and into a small retention area that already had storm water in it. We pulled 9,000 gallons of liquid from retention area just to be safe. I don¿t feel there is a need to take samples I believe the waste water was mostly contained in the storm water piping. 11/11/2017 07:03 EST Shady Hills Waste Water Facility 14220 Hays Road; Directions: PERMIT Number: FLA012741; Spring Hill FL; 34610 Pasco James Hircock Environmental Compliance Specialist jhircock@pascocountyfl.net (813) 235-6189 Environmentaal Compliance Specialist James Hircock (727) 247-0391 jhircock@pascocountyfl.net 28.237053 -82.651795 11/10/2017 13:55 EST No 11/10/2017 14:35 EST Incident Location

VAN DYKE WWTP On Thursday November 9, 2017, at 6:55 am, Van Dyke operators were alerted by a contractor upon arrival that there was a leak next to the Aeration Basin. Upon investigation, a broken coupling at the Chemscan sample piping was observed which caused the MLSS to spray out. The Chemscan pumps were immediately shut off at about 07:00 am. Envirowaste was contacted by Luke Armstrong at about 7:30. Envirowaste arrived at 9:00am to vacuum the area and operators limed the area thereafter. The Chemscan pumps have taken offline until this line underground is repaired The Chemscan pumps were shut off which stopped the flow through the sample line. The valves were also isolated. About 1,500 gallons of Mixed Liquor Suspended Solids was spilled onto the ground outside of the containment area through a breach in the containment and a broken pipe underground from the sump pump. ¿ Our operations staff has completed the SIR/SSO Report for the incident and has already made contact with regulatory agencies as required.
