TWA Lake Marion WRF 6-8-18 On June 7, 2018, starting at approximately 9:03 PM, the Lake Marion WRF suffered a PLC failure which caused all the effluent chlorine pumps to stop operating. This led to a 0.0 mg/L effluent chlorine residual and also caused the influent equalization pumps to fail, resulting in an estimated 10,000 gallon spill of raw wastewater at the facility. The PLC failure is believed to have been caused by a major lightning strike. The spill was contained on site and no surface water was impacted. The spill ended at approximately 12:15 AM, and the chlorine residual also returned above 0.5 mg/L at that time. The facility has resumed normal operations, though SCADA personnel are still working to resolve some issues. The State Watch Office was notified of the spill and produced incident number 2018-3533. 06/08/2018 07:35 EDT TWA Lake Marion WRF  FL Polk Adrian Brene Environmental Compliance Coordinator environmental@tohowater.com (407) 944-5016 Environmental Compliance Coordinator Adrian Brene (407) 944-5016 environmental@tohowater.com 28.063564 -81.493248 06/07/2018 09:05 EDT No 06/08/2018 00:15 EDT Incident Location
GTL Treated Effluent Overflow Q338890 A discharge of fully treated effluent was routed through the plant's emergency bypass outfall pipe that discharges into the intra-coastal waterway beginning at 15:48 6/7/2018. Heavy rainfall and a disabled pump prompted the discharge. The pump is still off-line, but the decrease in the amount of rainfall made it possible to cease the current discharge. The volume of fully treated effluent that was discharged will be determined. 06/07/2018 16:46 EDT GTL Regional Wastewater Facility 1765 SE 18th Street; Fort Lauderdale FL; 33316 Broward Larry Teich Environmental Resources Supervisor lteich@fortlauderdale.gov (954) 828-7844 Environmental Resources Supervisor Larry Teich (954) 828-7844 lteich@fortlauderdale.gov 26.099398 -80.125044 06/07/2018 15:45 EDT No 06/07/2018 16:10 EDT Incident Location
