EWRF 9-16-18, 12:35 At approximately 12:35 plant staff performed a plant inspection and noticed partially treated secondary effluent discharging from Phase-3 ABW influent channel. Operators immediately performed a filter by-pass to stop the discharge. Approximately 1000 gallons went into a storm drain that is currently blocked off from pond due to construction. Cleaner crew recovered 2500 gallons of partially treated secondary effluent and rain water from the affected storm drain. The remaining 2000 gallons of partially treated secondary effluent filled an excavation next to ABW basin. A tanker truck was dispatched to pump out the excavation area. 2500 gallons of partially treated secondary effluent and rain water was recovered. All of the recovered water was sent back to the headworks for retreatment. State watch was called at 13:19. Incident # 2018-5821. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 3,000 gallons released, 5,000 gallons recovered, 0 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 09/17/2018 10:54 EDT Eastern Water Reclamation Facility (EWRF) 1621 S Alafaya Trail; Orlando FL; 32828 Orange Eduardo C.

TWA Sandhill WRF Lift Station 79 9-14-18 On July 26, 2018, Pure Technologies, a consultant working for TWA to assess forcemains informed a TWA Engineering employee that there was a possible leak located in the vicinity of Lift Station 79; at this point the engineering employee referred to the leak as a water leak. The Engineering employee notified Field Services to dispatch a crew to the location to assess a potential leak. On September 6, 2018, Pure Technologies informed an Engineering manager that there was in fact a leak at the location, but did not identify whether the leak was water or wastewater. The Engineering manager then proceeded to personally inspect the site on September 11, 2018, and saw that the leak was in fact a wastewater leak; he then notified Field Services immediately of his observation. Field Services then arranged to acquire the necessary equipment in order to excavate and repair the small forcemain leak. Field Services arrived at the site on September 13, 2018, at approximately 10:00 AM, and the spill was stopped at approximately 4:00 PM that day. The raw wastewater spill volume was back calculated using the average number of minutes per day run time of the lift station pumps and the estimated spill flow rate of 10 gallons/minute, for a total of 247,000 gallons from July 26, 2018, to September 13, 2018. Approximately 3,000 gallons were recovered during excavation and repair; the spill area was washed down and some lime was applied. The State Watch Office was notified and produced incident report #2018-5770. 09/14/2018 14:02 EDT TWA Sandhill WRF  FL Osceola Adrian Brene Environmental Compliance Coordinator environmental@tohowater.com (407) 944-5016 Environmental Compliance Coordinator Adrian Brene (407) 944-5016 environmental@tohowater.com 28.34692 -81.620841 07/26/2018 12:00 EDT No 09/13/2018 10:00 EDT Incident Location

North Brevard -Clogged Line Longbow Drive On 9/13/18, calls about backups were received. Upon investigation, a clog in the sewer main was found. After it was cleared, the pump at the lift station could not keep up due to dirt build up and the manhole at Sir Page Ln and Longbow Drive began to overflow about 3:00pm. A bypass pump was been set up to handle the flow. About 6,500 gallons overflowed form the manhole and most went to a dry ditch off of Sir Page Lane. Door hangers will be delivered to homeowners along the ditch line letting them know what happened. About 500 gallons of the spill will be vacuumed. The flow should stay in the ditch since it is so dry. Washing down area and spreading lime. Sign posted near ditch also. 09/13/2018 16:24 EDT FLA010263 3205 Australian Way; Mims FL; 32754 Brevard Shelley Locklear Environmental Specialist shelley.locklear@brevardfl.gov (321) 633-2093 Owner Of the Facility Shelley Locklear (321) 633-2093 shelley.locklear@brevardfl.gov 28.649 -80.874 09/13/2018 15:00 EDT No 09/13/2018 16:00 EDT Incident Location
EWRF 9-11-18, 20:45 At approximately 2045 plant staff performed a plant inspection and noticed the pretreatment high level alarm flashing. This occurred while the influent by pass gate was open 100%. Plant staff then inspected the odor control air duct system and observed untreated wastewater discharging from two lower ports in the grit dumpster room. Plant staff estimated the discharge rate from the ports to be 25 Gallons per minute each . Due to the continuing high influent flow, a total of 73 minutes elapsed before the leak stopped. The total discharge was estimated to be 3,650 gallons. The discharge pooled on the floor of the grit room and also flowed outside to adjacent paved and unpaved surfaces of the pretreatment structure. A small portion of the discharge drained back into the pretreatment drain system. A tanker crew was dispatched to clean the affected areas and a combination of untreated wastewater and rain water was recovered and returned to the plant for treatment. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 3,650 gallons released, 5,000 gallons recovered, 0 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 09/12/2018 17:50 EDT Eastern Water Reclamation Facility (EWRF) 1621 S Alafaya Trail; Orlando FL; 32828 Orange Eduardo C.
