State Watch Incident #2018-6709 Today on 10/29/18 at 11:13 AM we had a 9,517 gallons of digested sludge spill at our Northeast facility (3290 State Road 580, Safety Harbor, Fl. 34695). The pumps at the primary pump house were air locked. Operations and maintenance was bleeding air off a line connected to the primary pump house scum pit and while relieving air the plug blew out. We were able to successfully close the valve. Using a spill kit, we were able to divert 9,467 gallons of the flow into a drain that leads back to the head of the plant. We cleaned lime stabilized the area. None of the digested sludge went offsite or reached the stormwater system. 10/29/2018 15:06 EDT City of Clearwater Northeast Plant  FL Pinellas Michael Flanigan Public Utilities Coordinator michael.flanigan@myclearwater.com (727) 224-7690 Operator Of the Facility Michael Flanigan (727) 224-7690 michael.flanigan@myclearwater.com 28.029073 -82.704568 10/29/2018 11:15 EDT No 10/29/2018 12:05 EDT Incident Location
SWRF 10-27-18, 16:30 Operation staff discovered a leaking sodium hypochlorite (NAOCL) line at 1630. The leak was isolated immediately. The leaking NAOCL was captured in an excavation site being utilized by on-site contractors. The excavation site had a sump pump previously pumping ground water. This pump captured 50 gallons of the leaking NAOCL and pumped it into the facility┐s sanitary sewer system. The remaining 15 gallons absorbed into the soil. The State Watch Office and National Response Center were notified within an hour of the spill. The leak was a total of 65 gallons which does not require further notification to the NRC. OC Risk Management was contacted and are sending contracted consultants to test the soil in the affected area. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 65 gallons released, 50 gallons recovered, 15 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 10/29/2018 14:43 EDT South Water Reclamation Facility (SWRF) 4760 W Sand Lake Road; Orlando FL; 32819 Orange Allison Freese Environmental Engineer Allison.Freese@ocfl.net (407) 836-6944 Environmental Engineer Mark Robinson (407) 254-9977 Mark.Robinson@ocfl.net 28.446244 -81.440617 10/27/2018 16:30 EDT No 10/27/2018 16:30 EDT Incident Location
