South Texas Avenue Force Main, 11/9/18 Investigation revealed a split six inch PVC force main. The pipe failure allowed untreated wastewater to discharge onto paved and unpaved surfaces along the south right-of-way of South Texas Avenue. The discharged wastewater entered a storm water inlet box located approximately 170 feet west of the failure point. The storm water structure discharges into the north side of an adjacent storm water retention pond. A plume resulting from the discharge, evidenced by turbidity, was observed near the storm water discharge point. At the time of this observation Field Services staff immediately started recovery from the surcharged storm water inlet structure, halting the plume┐s progress, and then installed a pump to draw water directly from the retention pond. The pond┐s overflow structure, located at its south end, was initially discharging, however, Field Services Staff blocked this outflow to prevent the flow of water towards the outfall. The outfall is connected to Lake Buchannan. The retention pond and lake were monitored throughout the day. There were no signs of turbidity reaching Lake Buchannan. Approximately 84,000 gallons was recovered from the affected storm water structure using tanker trucks. Approximately 460,000 gallons of water was recovered from the retention pond with the use of a bypass pump. The force main has since been returned to normal operation and affected surfaces cleaned and deodorized. Public Notice of Pollution signs have been posted at the retention pond. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 15,000 gallons released, 544,000 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. 11/11/2018 09:18 EST OCU Wastewater Force Main System South Texas Ave; Directions: Near 4101 S.

Willow Springs Court, Force Main, 11/9/18 The discharge of untreated wastewater was caused by a damaged four inch PVC force main. The damage to the force main was sustained by the failure of an adjacent two inch PVC potable water main that was installed in close proximity. The failure of the water main produced a high pressure stream of water that was directed at the force main which eventually eroded a hole in the pipe wall. The affected area included unpaved land located just east of pump station 3400 Wekiwa Piedment. The mixture of untreated wastewater and potable water flowed down grade and entered an adjacent storm water retention pond. Staff have since repaired and returned both systems back to normal operation. Field Services staff have also setup a pump to recover the discharge directly from the storm water retention pond and will continue to do so until five times the discharge volume or over has been collected. Orange County Environmental Protection Division have been informed of the situation. OCEPD also dispatched their own staff to investigate the impacted areas. Additionally Public Notice of Pollution signs have also been posted near the storm water retention pond. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 100,000 gallons released, 325,000 current 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. 11/10/2018 10:37 EST OCU Wastewater Force Main System Willow Springs Court; Directions: Near 2401 Willow Springs Court, Apopka, FL 32712; Apopka FL; 32712 Orange Eduardo C.

Domestic Wastewater Overflow City crews discovered a force main break at 4:30 pm today near PS 94 at 202 Summerbrooke Drive. Based on a review of the flow data, it is estimated that 100,000 gallons of untreated domestic wastewater overflowed and accumulated in a closed stormwater system known as Holley Pond. Vac trucks and septic haulers were used to maintain the station while the system was off and the repair was in progress. The overflow ceased by 6:30PM. The pipe was repaired and the station resumed operation at 10:10 pm. Water quality samples will be taken. 11/09/2018 22:50 EST TP Smith Wastewater Collection System 4505 Springhill Road, Tallahassee FL 32305; Directions: Force main break occurred near PS 94 at 202 Summerbrooke Drive, off of Meridian Road. ; Tallahassee  FL; 32305 Leon Alissa Meyers Environmental Compliance Administrator Alissa.Meyers@talgov.com (850) 891-8854 Environmental Compliance Administrator Charles Ziegmont (850) 508-0147 Charles.Ziegmont@talgov.com 30.574086 -84.275096 11/09/2018 16:30 EST No 11/09/2018 18:30 EST Incident Location
