Spanish Main Eff Discharge Received notification from operator that while onsite today (at approximately 12 noon) found effluent disposal pond discharging through the emergency overflow to the adjacent ditch. The operator has reported over 8" of rainfall received in the local area over the weekend and the past few days. The rains coupled with the storm water run off which discharges into the effluent disposal ponds from the road has caused the sudden elevation in levels and subsequent discharge. The discharge has not stopped at this point. SWP # 2019-3377. The operator will begin collection samples from the discharge for CBOD/Fecal and Dissolved Oxygen. Will continue to monitor and provide updates as required. The discharge is currently ongoing and contents consist of treated effluent, rain water and storm runoff waters. UPDATE as of 2:20 pm (06/24/2019); there was no noticeable discharge occurring from the effluent disposal ponds at the Spanish Main WWTP. The levels of the ponds are equalized with the levels in the adjacent storm water ditch. The operator will continue to monitor and report as required. 06/19/2019 14:07 EDT Spanish Main WWTP 12110 Spanish Main Resort Trail; Thonotosassa FL; 33592 Hillsborough Melisa Rotteveel US Water Services mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net (866) 753-8292 Operator Of the Facility Melisa Rotteveel (866) 753-8292 mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net 28.065 -82.303 06/19/2019 12:00 EDT No 06/24/2019 14:20 EDT Y Hillsborough, Incident Location
Palmera Pointe Condominium Our property contacted State Watch approximately 9:30 am this date 6/19/19 a Force Main ruptured approximately 4 feet below ground. The rupture caused leaking into our storm drains located within 100 feet. The estimated flow was at 100 GPM for up to three hours. The rupture was reported at 7:15am. The rupture was contained at 9:30. The flow was water only, no solids. The repairs are in process and will be completed today by 2pm. The State Watch was also informed that Hillsborough EPC was on location and taking test samples in the creek behind the property that the storm drains dump into. We opened fire hydrants to assist in the dilution also dumping into the storm drain for a period of 1-1/2 hours. UPDATE: VAC truck was used to suck up residue water at the line rupture location and on concrete decks that were in line with the storm drain and to maintain lift station levels while repairs were completed. 0 gallons remain on the ground. The creek in which the flow entered was inaccessible to pump out. We believe that the fire hydrant discharges were equal to or greater in the dilution of the spill/leak. The repairs and cleanup were completed by 3pm, 6/19/19. 06/19/2019 12:35 EDT Palmera Pointe Condominiums 7417 Palmera Pointe Cir ; Directions: One half mile south of W.
