DWU WWTP - Treated Effluent Spill At 4:30am today, a DWU operator noticed a spill on the WWTP coming from the screw lift pumps discharge. It was determined that construction debris partially blocked a main line feeding the filtration process causing treated effluent to overflow the channel. It is estimated that 161,000 gallons of treated effluent spilled overnight. Most of the treated effluent overland flowed to onsite stormwater ponds. It is estimated that about 2,800 gallons entered a nearby wetland that was isolated at the time and not discharging downstream. The water was diverted and the debris moved. The WWTP was returned to normal service before 5am. The chlorine residual was above 0.8mg/L during the time of spill. 06/05/2018 15:26 EDT DWU WWTP 14 Industrial Park Lane; Directions: End of Industrial park Lane off Airport Road in Destin; Destin FL; 32541 Okaloosa Monica Autrey Operations Manager mautrey@dwuinc.com (850) 699-3665 Operator Of the Facility Lockwood Wernet (850) 200-2028 lwernet@dwuinc.com 30.393862 -86.479054 06/04/2018 20:45 EDT No 06/05/2018 04:25 EDT Incident Location
South County Regional AWWTF On Jun 4, 2018 South County Regional AWTF was experiencing an effluent reject event caused by low UV Transmittance, resulting in 1.75 mg of reject water put into the east 2.0 mg reject tank. On June 4, 2018 it was discovered that (2) expansion joints were leaking on this tank. These joints were previously repaired by a contractor. Upon realization that there was an issue, plant staff set up 2 pumps to pump the water back into the tank so it can be retreated. Spill estimated at 12,000 gallons and was all contained on site. 06/05/2018 15:11 EDT South County Regional AWT FL0028061 ; Ruskin FL; 33570 Hillsborough Laura P.

Cooling Tower Water Release On Friday June 1, 2017 at 8:27 am, Duke Energy Florida (DEF) provided email notification to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Southwest District Office of a potential leak to the ground of cooling tower recirculating water at the Tiger Bay Station. On Thursday May 31, 2018 at 9:00 am, as part of the regular walk-through, an operator noticed water bubbling up from the ground next to the cooling tower basins. Based on knowledge of pipes in the vicinity, it was suspected the source of the water to be from the cooling tower recirculating water auxiliary line. Since the leak was underground, this was not confirmed until the area was excavated for repairs on Friday June 1, 2018, and laboratory results from samples collected on Thursday May 1, 2018 were received on Monday June 4, 2018 at 3:30 pm. Sampling results have been provided to FDEP. The cooling tower recirculating water auxiliary line contains ground water treated with sulfuric acid (to maintain a pH of 7.0 SU) and low concentrations of bleach and sodium hydroxide. A portable sump pump was installed to recirculate the water back to the cooling towers, and vacuum trucks were brought in to assist in pumping the water to facilitate repairs. The leak was fixed on Friday June 1, 2018 at 1:00 pm. It is estimated that approximately 15,600 gallons leaked into the ground from the time of discovery until the sump pump was installed. Approximately 35,200 gallons were recirculated back to the cooling towers or pumped with the vacuum trucks. Impacts of the leak were confined to the immediate vicinity. The leaking water did not leave the site nor reached surface waters. 06/05/2018 14:11 EDT Duke Energy Tiger Bay Station 3219 County Road 630; Ft.
