SWRF 08/01/2018, 2141 hrs Due to heavy rainfall plant process water was being diverted and stored in the facility┐s equalization ponds. Due to construction activities only three of five GST equalization pumps were available for operation. The remaining two pumps have not been fully accepted by the Water Reclamation Division and could not be used. Due to the limited pumping capacity the three pumps could not keep up with the additional flow into the ponds. As a result, approximately 1000 gallons of partially treated clarified secondary effluent overflowed and could not be recovered as it was immediately absorbed into sandy soil inside a nearby construction excavation pit. Staff diverted flow to the south east plant to stop the discharge. The discharge did not enter any storm water structures or cause any off-site affects. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 1000 gallons released, 0 gallons recovered, 1000 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 08/02/2018 12:14 EDT South Water Reclamation Facility (SWRF) 4760 W Sand Lake Road; Orlando FL; 32819 Orange Eduardo C.

Watewater spill at 7313 Rachel Way Material Spilled: Raw Sewage Approximate Amount of Spill: 500 gallons The spill occurred during a storm that caused the BC-13 lift station pumps to trip out. Once the pumps were manually reset the lift station was back to normal. This incident resulted in the sewer line back filling with wastewater. Once the sewer line was filled, the wastewater was then forced out of the manhole cover and onto the road. Wastewater leaving the manhole cover entered a storm drain across the road from the manhole. Due to heavy rain at the time of the spill, the wastewater then flowed through the storm drain and emptied into the retention pond. Lab personnel competed collecting samples for pH, temp, E-coli and fecal coliform at 7:08 pm on 7/31/18. Samples were collected at points 100 meters up and down stream of point of entry, and from the point of entry of the retention pond. Another set of samples are scheduled to be taken in the late morning on 8/1/18. 08/01/2018 14:04 EDT Military Point Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility 100 Lagoon Road; Tyndall Air Force Base FL; 32403 Bay Allyn Burgess Chief Wastewater Operator aburgess@baycountyfl.gov (850) 819-8632 Operator Of the Facility Allyn Burgess (850) 819-8632 aburgess@baycountyfl.gov 30.267827 -85.528086 07/31/2018 15:00 EDT No 07/31/2018 16:10 EDT Incident Location
