Murphy USA #7362 Approximately 350 gallons of gasoline was spilled due to a mechanical malfunction in the sump of the regular unleaded gasoline underground storage tank. Approximately 150 gallons of the gasoline from the sump flowed across the concrete surface to a storm water drain vault connected to a storm water drain separator. SWS Environmental was dispatched to site to perform cleanup activities, including using a vac truck to clean out the sump, separator, and drain vault. Absorbent pads were also used to clean out the drain vault followed by pressure washing of the drain vault and separator. The malfunction in the sump has been repaired. A complete report documenting the incident will be submitted at a later date. 11/06/2017 09:35 EST Murphy USA #7362, FDEP Facility ID No. 50/9808535 103 North Congress Avenue; Directions: Murphy USA Gas Station at Walmart Plaza; Lake Park FL; 33403 Palm Beach Michael McDonald Division Chief, National Rapid Response Center mike@nationalrapidresponse.com (512) 712-2808 Spill Response Coordinator Roy Therrien, PPM Consultants,Env Cons for Murph (352) 227-8097 roy.therrien@ppmco.com 26.79421 -80.086034 11/03/2017 06:15 EDT No 11/03/2017 23:30 EDT Incident Location

John Young Parkway and Deerfield Boulevard The cause of the overflow was a split 20 inch HDPE force main. The affected areas include paved road surface, unpaved land, drainage swale, storm water system and possibly wetlands. The location of the 20 inch HDPE force main break was approximately 630 feet north of the intersection of John Young Parkway and Deerfield Boulevard. The waste water entered an adjacent storm water system and may have entered wetlands adjacent to John Young Parkway. The storm water system in this area runs due west into wetlands.There is minimal risk to public health, safety or welfare. Field Services staff worked diligently and completed the repair. Recovery could not be made immediately due to the large response needed to isolate and control the flow from the twenty inch force main. However the swale was blocked to minimize flow from entering the storm water system. Recovery / clean-up efforts will commence on Saturday 11/4/2017. This delay should take into account a previous wastewater overflow that occurred just hours previous to this event. Initial overflow volume = 170,000 gallons Recovery = To be determined 11/04/2017 09:39 EDT Orange County Utilities Waste Water Collection System  FL Orange Eduardo Hernandez Engineer II Eduardo.Hernandez@ocfl.net (407) 836-6839 Engineer II Troy E.

John Young Pkwy and Whisper Lakes Blvd The cause of the overflow was due to corrosion issues at the top of a thirty inch force main. The hole that developed allowed untreated wastewater to overflow and emerge up onto a drainage swale. The affected area includes unpaved land, storm water system and storm water retention pond located north of the intersection at John Young Parkway and Whisper Lakes Blvd. The location of the failed thirty inch force main is approximately 650 feet north of the listed intersection along the east side right-of-way of John Young Parkway. The overflow did enter the storm water system adjacent to this location and flowed west towards a storm water retention pond located on the JW Marriot property golf course. Field Services staff worked diligently to restore the system to normal operation. But due to the flow characteristics of the thirty inch force main and all equipment being utilized to control wastewater flow of the affected force main. Staff could not make an immediate recovery of the overflowed wastewater. Recovery efforts will commence Saturday 11/4/17. This delay in recovery should also take into account that Orange County Utilities also experienced a second separate force main failure just hours after the first repair was completed. As such equipment and staff needed to be remobilized to the second overflow priority. There is minor risk to public health, safety or welfare. Field services staff were able to returned the system to normal operation. Staff also blocked flow to the storm drains to minimize storm water retention pond impacts. Recovery has been delayed but warning signs have been posted around the affected pond and JW Marriot Management notified as to situation and recovery plans. There is a small possibility that wastewater did make its way to wetlands near shingle creek but the wastewater will need to pass through three retention ponds before this occurs and will have been heavily diluted by this point. Initial estimated discharge = 1,500,000 Recovery = TBD 11/04/2017 08:12 EDT Orange County Utilities Wastewater Collections System  FL Orange Eduardo C.
