Manhole @ Corner of Shipyard Road & CO RD 83A East Due to an excessive amount of rainfall on 2/11/2018. We had received 12.75 inches within 24 hours. The roadways and ditches were overflowing, thereby causing rainwater to enter into the system through manholes. A manhole was leaking from around the lid, and the leakage was entering Fourmile Creek via an adjacent ditch. We estimate the spill to be 11400 gallons. The area has been cleaned and limed.

FPL Fort Myers Power Plant Diesel Spill While demolishing a diesel fuel oil line, residual oil leaked out onto soil. Initial report and indications appeared to be >25 gallons. This diesel line was an excavated line and when digging into the ground, the soil was full of rain water. This led to an initial assuption that the spill was much larger than it actually was. A hole was dug and the contents were pumped into ta drum the total diesel collected was only about 15 gallons. A conservative estimate of the spill is 20 gallons, which would classify it as non-reportable. Stste Warning Office was initially notified that an estmiate of 40 gallons was spilled. 02/13/2018 16:37 EST FPL Fort Myers Power Plant 10650 Palm Beach Blvd; Directions: Exit 141 on I-75.

Private wastewater overflow Aspire Health Partners There was an intruder who vandalized our campus and broke some windows and sprinkler system equipment. This person also went to the lift station area and shut off the breakers for our lift station pumps. Due to loss of electricity to the pumps the lift station surpassed its appropriate levels and overflowed the containment area. The area was pumped out of 3500 gallons and the entire area was cleaned and sanitized. The levels are returned to normal. All pumps are performing as designed. We have installed locks on all breaker boxes to avoid tampering in the future. 02/13/2018 14:16 EST Aspire Health Partners 1800 Mercy Drive; Directions: Take Princeton street to Mercy Drive.

CS021218 At approximately 1515 on Monday, February 12, 2018, a contractor digging as part of a construction project at 6904 Cortez Rd W, in Bradenton, inadvertently cut into a sanitary sewer force main, causing it to discharge raw wastewater. The discharge flowed east across a short field and entered a canal that eventually discharges into Palma Sola Bay. The discharge was finally halted at approximately 1915 on Monday, February 12, 2018. Numerous pumper trucks were employed to recover the discharged wastewater, and the flow through the damaged force main was eventually diverted to allow repairs to be completed. The final volume of discharged wastewater from this event was estimated at 500,000 gallons. MCUD staff are collecting analytical samples for microbiology analysis throughout Palma Sola Bay and Palma Sola Creek to evaluate the impact of this event; are posting numerous warning signs near impacted areas where human contact is possible; are providing citizens directly adjacent to impacted areas with door hangers warning them of the potential dangers of the event; and are working with local Health Department staff to notify citizens throughout Manatee County of the potential impacts of contact with water contaminated by wastewater in Palma Sola Bay. 02/13/2018 12:00 EST FLA012619/Southwest Water Reclamation Facility 5101 65th St W; Bradenton FL; 34210 Manatee Andre Rachmaninoff Wastewater Compliance Superintendent andre.rachmaninoff@mymanatee.org (941) 792-8811 Owner Representative Ed Ferrence (941) 792-8811 ed.ferrence@mymanatee.org 27.462845 82.628686 02/12/2018 15:15 EST No 02/12/2018 19:15 EST Y Manatee, Incident Location
