LS112019 At approximately 1800 on November 20, 2019, Manatee County Lift Stations staff responded to a potential sanitary sewer overflow in Bradenton. Upon arrival, staff determined that the telemetry control unit (TCU) at the Manatee Palms lift station (RTU 313) had failed, disabling the communication system and pumps. Since the pumps were offline, this caused a high water level in the lift station, the collection system to surcharge, and discharges from four manholes near 203 64th Street Northeast, 114 Alpine Circle, 138 Alpine Circle, and 142 Alpine Circle. The total estimated amount of the SSO event was 15,000 gallons with some of the discharged wastewater flowing into storm water drains. RTU 313 was returned to service by 1900, the TCU was replaced, and the affected area was rinsed with potable water. Wastewater Compliance staff performed an investigation and determined that the potentially impacted storm water retention ponds were fenced, locked and inaccessible to the public so no samples were collected. 11/21/2019 18:30 EST FLA012618/Southeast WRF 3331 Lena Road; Bradenton FL; 34211 Manatee Karen Briden Wastewater Compliance Superintendent karen.briden@mymanatee.org (941) 792-8811 Owner Representative Nick Wagner (941) 792-8811 nick.wagner@mymanatee.org 27.496581 -82.480801 11/20/2019 18:00 EST No 11/20/2019 22:00 EST Y Duval, Manatee, Incident Location
Mills Park Sanitary Sewer Overflow On 11/21/2019, at approximately 7:45AM, the City of Orlando┐s Water Reclamation CPA staff was notified of a private sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) at Mills Park, 1640 N. Mills Ave. CPA staff arrived on site at approximately 8:30AM. Sewage was being discharged into the environment from the private lift station┐s (PLS) valve box. The PLS┐s high level alarm and warning light were not active at the time of their arrival. CPA staff began their SSO response protocols, deploying safety tape, stakes and materials to divert and berm the SSO to prevent further contamination of the surrounding areas. The area was roped off with caution tape and stakes. CPA staff setup berms around the stormwater drains on Lake Formosa Dr. to prevent further contamination into the stormwater system and Lake Formosa. Private property management, Forness Properties, was contacted. Mills Park┐s contractor, All Florida Septic, arrived on site at approximately 9:00AM and was able to turn off the PLS, stopping the SSO event. After pumping the sewage out of the valve box, it appeared the piping in the valve box (which connects the PLS to the private force main) had cracked. This structural failure allowed the sewage being pumped from the PLS to escape the piping inside of the valve box, and overflow into the environment. The contractor was able to repair the piping in the valve box. Contractor staff washed down the affected areas with a Simple Green and water solution, and vacuum pumped the residual wash waters from the roadway and affected areas around the PLS and trailway. Contractor staff cleaned and vacuum pumped the stormwater drains on Lake Formosa Dr., and vacuum pumped the stormwater drains of residual sewage and wash waters. Approximately 4,000 gallons of sewage escaped the valve box and entered the environment. Approximately 1,200 gallons of sewage entered the stormwater drains on Lake Formosa Dr. The contractor vacuum pumped approximately 16,000 gallons of sewage, residual wash waters and stormwater drain cleanings from the affected areas. Mills Park property management, Forness Properties, will submit the FDEP overflow report. 11/21/2019 18:25 EST Mills Park Development 1640 N. Mills Ave.; Directions: In Orlando, travel north on N.

Tower Manor Solids Loss The operator phoned to report that while conducting normal operational visit at 0945hrs site staff notified him of a possible ball float malfunction occurring at the lift station, after further investigation it was determined that the malfunctioning ball floats allowed the lift station to fill, once the pumps engaged it placed a hydraulic over load on the plant causing the plants tanks level to rise and ultimately discharge from the lowest point within the treatment plant. It is estimated that approximately 1500 gallons of wastewater were lost and breached the plants perimeter fence line. No water ways were affected. As of 1100 hrs the spill has ceased. 11/20/2019 13:50 EST Tower Manor 5065 Saddle Creek Rd.; Auburndale  FL; 33823 Polk Bobby Ray Romeo Quality Control bromeo@uswatercorp.net (866) 753-8292 Operator Of the Facility Bobby Ray Romeo (866) 753-8292 bromeo@uswatercorp.net 28.072206 -81.853778 11/20/2019 09:45 EST No 11/20/2019 11:00 EST Incident Location
