EWRF 9-10-18, 21:00 At approximately 2100 plant staff performed a plant inspection during heavy rain storm and noticed the pretreatment alarm flashing. This occurred while the influent by pass gate was open 100%. Plant staff then inspected the temporary wall flange for the air duct system and observed untreated wastewater discharging. The amount of flow discharging from the wall flange was reduced by utilizing a 6 inch hose that was installed to siphon untreated wastewater from the air duct system. Plant staff estimated the discharge rate from the wall flange to be about 300 gallons a minute. Due to the continuing high influent flow, a total of 65 minutes elapsed before the leak stopped. The total discharge was estimated to be 19,500 gallons. The majority of the spill was pooled on adjacent paved and unpaved surfaces near the wall flange or drained back into the pretreatment drain system. A tanker crew was dispatched to clean the affected areas. 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: 19,500 gallons released, 20,000 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. 09/11/2018 14:58 EDT Eastern Water Reclamation Facility (EWRF) 1621 South Alafaya Trail; Orlando FL; 32828 Orange Eduardo C.
