Storm water ditch overflow to Bracco pond A On 10/2/2017 our storm water ditch over flowed in to our reject pond we call Bracco pond A. This was cause by the rain fall of 9.1 inches that we got on 10/1/2017. As the water started to recede the excess water that went in to Bracco pond A stated to flow back out to the storm water ditch. It stated flowing out at approx. 0002 on 10/2/2017 and flowed out until approx... 2201 on 10/2/2017. The over flow lasted for approx.. 22 hrs. We estimate the overflow to be approx.. 198,000 gallons. We used the formula for flow thru a vertical pipe.The water that went in to Bracco pond A was storm water, the water that was in the pond did have some substandard water from previous time that we had to use the pond for reject water. This over flow was caused by an extreme rain fall event. 10/04/2017 14:47 EDT Jerry Sellers water reclamation facility 375 N.

Bracco pond a overflow during hurricane Irma On Sunday 9/10/2017 hurricane Irma hit Cocoa, Fl... Prior to the storm we started sending surplus water to our reject pond we call Bracco pond 1A, at 1530 on 9/10/2017 we lost communication with the level indicator at Bracco pond 1A. At this time the level was 16.75 ft. This left us approx. 0.75 ft. to for storage. During this time wind speeds went above 35 mph this made too dangerous to go outside to shut off the flow to Bracco pond 1A we were not able to safely shut off the flow to Bracco pond 1A until 1145 on Monday 9/11/2017. At this time we had over 9.6 inches of rain this cause Bracco pond 1A to overflow to the storm water ditch that goes to the Indian River lagoon. We estimate the flow that over flowed at 1.180mgd. We use the formula for flow thru a vertical pipe. Formula is Q=5.68kd2h1/2. We figured the pipe started to over flow at Approx. 0800 on 9/11/2017 and stopped over flowing at 1000 on 9/12/2017. It over flowed for 26 hrs. The water that we sent to Bracco pond 1A was fully treated reuse water, the water that was in the pond did have some substandard water for previous times that we had to use the pond for reject water. This over flow was caused by the Rains and destruction caused by hurricane Irma. 10/04/2017 14:40 EDT Jerry Sellers water reclamation Facillity 375 N.

SWRF - 4760 Sand Lake Road The southwest rate of flow (ROF) valve closed stopping all forward flow from the southwest clarifiers to the disc filters which caused the southwest clarifiers to overflow. Affected areas include paved road surface, unpaved land, swale to storm water pond. Minimal risk to public health due to the clarified effluent being contained in our onsite storm water pond. Total overflowed volume is 25,000 gallons of clarified effluent. 10/04/2017 11:15 EDT SWRF 4760 West Sand Lake Road; Orlando  FL; 32819 Orange Eduardo C.

City of Cocoa Beach Lift Station 5 service area October 3rd 2017 between the hours of 9am and 3pm multiple manholes weeping sewer on North Banana River Boulevard, Brightwaters Drive and Kent Drive were being reported to the City of Cocoa Beach Water Reclamation Facility. A few manholes were reported that overflow was going into a storm drain that discharges into Brightwaters Drive and Dorset Drive river canal. Crews responded to the scene and confirmed these reports. All of the sewage in this area flows to Lift Station #5 which was having a hard time keeping up with the amount of flow being discharged into it. 10+ inches of rain was reported to have fallen in Cocoa Beach causing the sewer system to surcharge in this area. We estimate 2-3000 gallons (mixture of rain and sewage) wept out of the manholes (on and off) over the 6 hour period. Crews arrived on scene with vactor trucks and bypass pumps to relieve the surcharge in the gravity lines. A bypass pump was set in place and discharged into a nearby forcemain to relieve the surcharge on the gravity lines. The water receded and levels are being maintained by the usage of the bypass pump. The pump will remain on site until further inspections of the gravity lines can be performed. Crews will remain in the area monitoring the sanitary sewer system until flows return back to normal. 10/04/2017 06:40 EDT City of Cocoa Beach Water Reclamation Facility 1600 Minutemen Causeway; Cocoa Beach FL; 32931 Brevard Brad Kalsow Operations Manager bkalsow@cityofcocoabeach.com (321) 868-3321 Operator Of the Facility Brad Kalsow (321) 868-3321 bkalsow@cityofcocoabeach.com 28.366265 -80.609292 10/03/2017 09:00 EDT No 10/03/2017 15:00 EDT Incident Location
