West Palm Beach Water Plant - Ferric Sulate Leak At approximately 8 P.M. a Plant Operator discovered a leak in the ferric sulfate transfer pipe at the water treatment plant. The operator reported that pipe appeared to be leaking for several hours and had ponded on the ground. The leak is contained on site. Water Treatment Plant staff have responded to control the leak and will secure the area to prevent the ferric sulfate from spreading further. The operators are uncertain of the amount of ferric that leaked this time. A full evaluation of the leak and an accurate assessment of the amount will be completed in the A.M. Additional information will be provided at that time. 7 Mar 2019 Update: The leak was isolated and the spill contained as noted above. The amount released has been estimated at less than 500 gallons (360 Gal - Based on area impacted and average depth of the spill.)

TWA Sandhill WRF 3-6-19 On March 6, 2019, from approximately 10:20 AM to 10:35 AM, a wastewater spill occurred at the TWA Sandhill WRF. The clarifier splitter box had its weir gates raised the previous night to prevent an impending solids wash out from occurring in the clarifiers. This adjustment later caused the overflow to spill out the back of the old oxidation ditch effluent section where a wall gap exists. The operator witnessed the spill happening and made the proper adjustments to cease the overflow.

Force Main Spill Key West State watch was called on 3/3/19 at 15:29 and case number was 2019-1268. On March 3rd, at approximately 1:30 PM we received a call to the force main located on the south side bridge approach to Fleming Key that water was coming out of the vault. Our Collections Supervisor and team responded and were onsite within the hour. We found sewage spilling out of the force main vault. The crew utilized a Vactor truck, backhoe and other various equipment to contain and cleanup the site. The pump stations around the city were disabled to minimize flow to investigate and repair the leak of the force main. A total of approximately 10,000 gallons of wastewater spilled from a failed 2-inch tap on a 30-inch force main. 500 to 1000 gallons of which entered the waterway of Fleming Key Channel and the rest was contained, vacuumed and disposed of at the wastewater facility. Sampling and testing for Fecal Coliform and Enterococcus was performed at the point of entry and 3 other locations. The first round of samples were positive at the point of entry. Sampling and testing are being performed daily. Results will be sent in a separate report. A tap installed 8 years ago by a contractor required to pressure test the Force Main after performing work failed from corrosion. The salt air environment caused corrosion of the straps on the saddle tap. The saddle tap was left in place instead of removing and installing a more permanent repair A stainless steel full circle clamp was installed in place of the saddle tap. The repair was complete at approximately 8:15 PM. Our corrective action going forward is to inspect force main vaults around the City to locate and eliminate other old taps that seem to fail after 8 to 10 years. 03/05/2019 20:23 EST Key West Wastewater Facility Trumbo Point Annex, Fleming Key; Key West FL; 33040 Monroe Rick Cleaver Assistant Project Manager Richard.Cleaver@jacobs.com (305) 797-3996 Operator Of the Facility Rick Cleaver (305) 797-3996 Richard.Cleaver@jacobs.com 24.566 -81.795 03/03/2019 13:30 EST No 03/03/2019 20:15 EST N Incident Location
