Winter Garden Vineland Road Reclaim Main, 10-30-18 The discharge of reclaimed water was caused by third a party subcontractor performing directional drilling activities under Winter Garden Vineland Road. The contactor struck a twelve inch reclaimed water main which discharged directly into the bore path. The discharge then followed through the existing bore under the north bound lanes and east right-of-way of Winter Garden Vineland Road. This caused undermining of the paved road surface, east right-of-way and sidewalk. The discharge then sheet flowed in a northeast direction entering a upland buffer area where sediment deposited and water was absorbed into the ground. No storm water structures have been impacted by the discharge. Field Services Staff have since repaired the damaged main and temporarily patched the affected roadway. The onsite development contractor is currently removing the soil from the affected area. Orange County Environmental Protection Division have been contacted. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 100,000 gallons released, 0 gallons recovered, 100,000 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare 10/31/2018 11:53 EDT OCU Reclaimed Water Distribution System ; Directions: Near 10387 Vista Oaks Court, Orlando, FL 32836; Orlando FL; 32836 Orange Eduardo C.
