Coolant spill at Fedex terminal in Pompano Beach, FL On 11/2/2017 at 1000 EST, Dwayne Jackson with Fedex Ground terminal 0333 called ERTS regarding a 10 gallon antifreeze release from a Ground Line Haul truck at the Fedex terminal parking lot located at 2700 Northwest 25th street in Pompano Beach, FL. The spill was the result of an apparent mechanical issue causing it to leak onto the asphalt parking lot and nearby storm drain.

(NWRWRF) 11005 Dale Stitik Drive, Tampa 33626 On 11/2/17 at 12:00 PM, the NW Regional Expansion contractor was draining a 36 pipe for removal to replace it with a 54 pipe. Back pressure was detected at the pump because they did not know that two valves in the 36 pipe were closed. The contractor opened an air release valve on the 36 line to relieve the back pressure and raw sewage was discharged on the ground and entered an on-site storm water pond. The contractor stopped the pump and installed a pipe on the 36 line air release valve, which allowed flow to be directed into a nearby manhole. Of the 26,400 gallons discharged, 19,600 gallons was recovered in the nearby manhole and 6,000 gallons entered into the on-site storm water pond. Plant Operations staff collected a grab sample of the storm water pond water. The nutrient levels indicated no significant impact to the pond and no flow discharged from the pond. Improved communication procedures between the contractor and project management will be discussed at the next project meeting.There is no immediate impact to residences or businesses. Regulatory Agency notification was made to the EPC via telephone at 4:39 PM, DEP at 4:00 PM. The State Warning Point notified via telephone at 8:00 AM on 11/3/17. 11/03/2017 15:27 EDT Northwest Regional Wastewater Reclamation Facility FL0041670  FL Hillsborough JON JOHANSON PROJECT MANAGER II JOHANSONJ@HILLSBOROUGHCOUNTY.ORG (813) 209-3088 PROJECT MANAGER II RICHARD CUMMINGS (813) 209-3003 CUMMINGSR@HILLSBOROUGHCOUNTY.ORG 28.069295 -82.620158 11/02/2017 11:00 EDT No 11/02/2017 12:00 EDT Incident Location

City of Largo WWRF (2397 Cresent Dr/LS 12) An overflow occurred at 8am this morning at City manhole (MH) # 13-8020 (2397 Cresent Dr.). The MH is upstream of Lift Station (LS) 12, part of the City's system, which is currently under contract operation. It appears there was a programming issue with the PLC that caused the breaker to trip and a loss of power to the pumps. Approximately 7,400 gallons of WW overflowed from the MH into a nearby catch basin and into the McKay Creek water basin. Approximately 100 gallons of the discharge was collected, along with water used to clean the area; lime was applied, signs were posted and samples were collected. The City is working with the contractor overseeing the LS to determine the issue and make necessary corrections. 11/02/2017 16:03 EDT 2397 Cresent Dr. 2397 Cresent Dr.; Directions: MH # 13-8020, Upstream of Lift Station # 20; Largo FL; 33770 Pinellas Donna Dessoir Environmental Control Supervisor dodessoi@largo.com (727) 507-4491 Environmental Control Supervisor Donna Dessoir (727) 507-4491 dodessoi@largo.com 27.909675 -82.815633 11/02/2017 08:30 EDT No 11/02/2017 09:00 EDT Incident Location
