Intersection Moss Road and Murphy Road Sanitary sewer overflow at the intersection of Moss Road and Murphy Road Winter Springs, FL. Overflow of manhole was due to lightening striking the lift station and damaging several pieces of equipment during a major rain and lightening event. We set up bypass pumping to stop the overflow. Electricians and mechanics worked to reinstate normal operation to the station. We used a vacuum Truck to clean up the overflow area and put down some lime for disinfection. We than vacuumed the residue. 06/21/2019 13:47 EDT Winter Springs/West FLA011067  FL Seminole Paul Morrison Utility Superintendent pmorrison@winterspringsfl.org (407) 327-5983 Utility Superintendent Paul Morrison (407) 327-5983 pmorrison@winterspringsfl.org 28.690854 -81.304216 06/13/2019 14:30 EDT No 06/13/2019 17:30 EDT Incident Location

City of Safety Harbor - Hydraulic Oil Leak On 6/20/19, at approximately 10am, a City garbage truck experienced a failure of a hydraulic hose. This resulted in a leak of 30-35 gallons of hydraulic oil onto Country Villas Dr., north of Forest Cir. The oil stayed contained to the roadway. Stormwater BMPs were put in place prior to clean up. No oil entered the Stormwater system, creeks, or swales. City crews immediately cleaned up the oil utilizing oil-dri oil absorbent and the City street sweeper. The hydraulic oil leaked was Chevron Clarity Hydraulic Oil AW 68, a heavily refined mineral oil product, and as per the SDS not classified as hazardous according to 29 CFR 1910.1200 (2012). 06/20/2019 18:16 EDT City of Safety Harbor Public Works 1200 Railroad Ave.; Safety Harbor  FL; 34695 Pinellas Renee Cooper Asst.

Aloha Gardens LS #12 A wastewater spill was found occurring at LS #12 (2341 Chatlin Road, Holiday) @ 0800 am on 06/20/2019; this station is part of the Aloha Gardens Collection system. The spill is believed to be attributed to the elevated collection system and increased flows being delivered to the station due to the approximate 6" of rain received in the local area over the past few days. The lift station pumps within the station discharge to the Pasco County Utilities force main and are unable to consistently keep up with the flows being received. The spill is currently ongoing (intermittently). The entire spill has been contained within the onsite disposal pond (old effluent disposal pond). Technicians are replacing one of the current lift station pumps with one of larger size in and effort to move a greater volume of water at an increased pressure. Also crews are installing a third external bypass pump to assist with pumping down the station in an effort to reduce station operating levels with the increased influent flows being received. Determining an estimate to the volume of the spill is difficult at this time due to the fact that the discharge is not continuous. The discharge is contingent to the head pressure of the force main and is dictated by other lift stations contributing to the force main. The current volume is estimated at 10-15 gallons per minute - when discharging; however again the station has not continuously discharged. All contents of the discharge have remained onsite. No water ways are affected. UPDATE: The discharge has ceased as of 7:45 am. 06/21/2019 UPDATE: Technicians found the station not discharging at 7:45 am on 06/21/2019, the total estimated volume of loss is 2,000 gallons (all contained onsite). The station level was down approximately 4┐ upon arrival to the site, so it the discharge ceased at some-point during the evening. The affected area of the discharge will be limed and cleaned. No water ways were affected. 06/20/2019 15:42 EDT Aloha Gardens Collection System 2341 Chatlin Road ; Holiday FL; 34652 Pasco Melisa Rotteveel US Water Services mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net (866) 753-8292 Operator Of the Facility Melisa Rotteveel (866) 753-8292 mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net 28.193 -82.763 06/20/2019 08:00 EDT No 06/21/2019 07:45 EDT N Incident Location
