CS081619b On 8/16/19 at approximately 9:00 am, Manatee County Lift Stations staff became aware of a potential sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) near 4010 Riverview Boulevard in Bradenton. Upon arrival, staff found a manhole (MH 9746) discharging and flowing into a storm water drain.

This event is ongoing with an estimated SSO discharge of greater than 1,000 gallons. 08/16/2019 20:45 EDT FLA012619/Southwest WRF 5101 65th Street West; Bradenton FL; 34210 Manatee Karen Briden Wastewater Compliance Superintendent karen.briden@mymanatee.org (941) 792-8811 Owner Representative Nick Wagner (941) 792-8811 nick.wagner@mymanatee.org 27.503214 -82.599891 08/16/2019 09:00 EDT Yes Y Manatee, Incident Location

Lindrick/Gulf Harbors Collection System Discharge 081619 Upon performing rounds of the system at approx 0600 am, technician found two manholes within the Lindrick/Gulf Harbors collection system discharging. Manholes located at 4618 Corner Court & 5029 Blue Heron Drive. Elevated collection system levels and subsequent discharges are attributed to heavy rains received in the local area. In anticipation of the rains and increased flow, crews placed additional pumps in place to assist with the moving of the increased flow received, as well as utilized hauling and vac trucks to lower the system operating levels. A total volume of discharge is estimated at 5,000 gallons. The discharge from the manhole at 5029 Blue Heron Drive did reach storm drains within the adjacent area. The discharge ceased by 2:30 pm. Technicians continue to monitor the system. The affected area of the grounds will be limed and cleaned.
