OCWS SSO - Gap Creek, Fort Walton Beach 02/14/2019 - Okaloosa County Water & Sewer (OCWS) experienced a sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) today that was discharged into a body of water. At 11:30am today, we were notified of potential sewer force main break under Gap Creek, in unincorporated Fort Walton Beach. The nearest address is 145 Manring Rd. When OCWS staff arrived on-site, it was confirmed that the leak was coming from an aging 4 inch force main underneath Gap Creek, approximately in the middle of the creek. The pump station was immediately cut off, and the SSO ceased. From when staff became aware of the potential sewer spill, we estimate that 1,500 gallons of sanitary sewer was discharged into Gap Creek, which flows into Cinco Bayou. While on-site today, staff was made aware that the spill had been ongoing for the past 2 weeks; this means that potentially 180,000 gallons of sanitary sewer was discharged into Gap Creek during the past 2 weeks. OCWS staff is indefinitely hauling the sewer from the pump station, around the clock, while the force main remains out of service. Staff is currently planning temporary and/or permanent solutions, in coordination with regulatory agencies. One possible solution involves a temporary pipe across Gap Creek, which would restrict recreational use (i.e. boating and kayaking). Reporting is in progress. We have coordinated with local FDEP and Florida Department of Health (FDOH) officials. FDOH is reviewing the information to make a determination on the appropriate Health Advisory. As there was a SSO and upcoming construction work in the area, County staffs recommendation is to place restrictions on Gap Creek and Cinco Bayou, and in particular limiting access to Gap Creek. OCWS is performing water quality monitoring and testing, in coordination with FDEP and FDOH. Once satisfactory results are achieved, the health advisory will be lifted. 02-15-2019 - OCWS crews pumped & hauled sewer through the night and are continuing to do so indefinitely. During PM peak hour flows, while 1 truck was hauling, we had another small sewer spill. Approximately 100 gallons of sanitary sewer bubbled out of the top of a manhole in front of 713 Gap Creek Dr. and entered a ditch, which discharges enter Gap Creek about 150 ft downstream of the force main break. The area was cleaned and disinfected. Since this occurred, we now have 2 trucks hauling to further minimize the chance of additional sewer spills. 02/14/2019 18:49 EST Arbennie Pritchett WRF 250 Roberts Blvd. ; Fort Walton Beach FL; 32547 Okaloosa Darren Alford Wastewater Operations Manager dlalford@myokaloosa.com (850) 651-7133 Operator Of the Facility Mark Wise (850) 651-7171 mwise@myokaloosa.com 30.478 -86.568 02/14/2019 11:30 EST No 02/14/2019 12:30 EST N Incident Location

Jennifer Fowler A power pole (Duke Energy) located on the opposite side of Brick road malfunctioned, causing the lift station to fail. The pole is not located on school property. Due to the lack of power, the untreated sewage flowed through the grass onto the roadway and into the storm drainage system. The storm drain empties into a creek which feeds into Lake Apopka. Duke Energy restored the power. Facilities Maintenance contacted the plumbing vendor to verify the lift station was operating per design. In order to prevent additional raw sewage from entering the storm drains, vacuum trucks were brought onsite to continually pump out the lift stations until the power was restored. A sand berm was also placed around the lift station. The emergency response vendor placed sand bags around the storm drains, pumped out the storm drains (~240 gal) and applied an antibacterial disinfectant. 02/12/2019 16:06 EST Tildenville Elementary School  FL Orange Jennifer Fowler Director jennifer.fowler@ocps.net (407) 317-3900 Environmental Compliance Jennifer Fowler (407) 317-3900 jennifer.fowler@ocps.net 28.557848 -81.607027 02/12/2019 08:40 EST No 02/12/2019 12:00 EST Incident Location
