Royal Waterworks Master LS We received a float sensor call at 6:55 PM. A tech was dispatched and arrived on site at 7:51 PM. The tech found that the lift station pumps had tripped and were immediately reset. He found the emergency bypass pump had faulted. Crews were able to reset the oil pressure sensor and then pumped down the wet well. The submersible pumps were pulled and checked for debris and the bypass topped off with additional oil for the engine. We have had a couple electrical incoming power issues and think that may have contributed to the trip conditions for the submersible pumps. The emergency bypass pump was evaluated immediately the next morning by the vendor, 11/22,and is scheduled for a complete service on Monday 11/28. In addition an electrical company is being brought in to review the electrical aspects of the panel. Field evaluation estimates the spill area to be across an area of 80 Ft X 30 FT . Using that area and an estimated depth of discharge of 3 inches across the area, the spill is reported as 4,488 +/- Gallons total. No waterways were affected. Hydrated lime applied to affected area. Bypass service record to be performed on 11/28 to be forwarded as well as Electrical inspection. 11/22/2022 08:58 PM Royal Waterworks Northwest 43rd Street and Northwest 88th Avenue; Coral Springs FL; 33065 Broward Melisa Rotteveel US Water Services mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net (866) 753-8292 Operator of the Facility/Installation Melisa Rotteveel (866) 753-8292 mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net 26.28328 -80.242411 11/21/2022 06:55 PM No 11/21/2022 08:15 PM Incident Location

Domestic wastewater plant aeration tank leak The domestic WWTP operator discovered that the aeration tanks level had dropped at the Atlantic Holding LLC plant at approximately 0900 on November 21, 2022. Further inspection identified a leak near the base of the steel aeration tank. Atlantic Holding brought in hoses, fittings, and a gas powered pump to transfer water from the aeration tanks to the plant surge tank. It is anticipated that the water in the aeration tanks will be pumped out to a level near the bottom (as low as possible before the pump suction hose loses prime) before the end of the day. The Palm Beach County office of the Department of Health was contacted at 1530 to inform of the Department of the leak. 11/21/2022 08:32 PM Atlantic Holding LLC 26400 CR 880; Directions: From CR 880 west of 20 mile bend, travel south on Atlantic Sugar Mill Road to former mill site to location of old labor camp WWTP.; Unincorporated Palm Beach county FL; 33430 Palm Beach Matthew Capone Director of Environmental Compliance matthew.capone@floridacrystals.com (561) 366-5117 Representative of facility owner and operator Matthew Capone (561) 531-0176 matthew.capone@floridacrystals.com 26.634299 -80.467651 11/21/2022 09:00 AM Yes Incident Location

WRF#2 Filter Valve Leak On Friday 11/18/2022, a very small water leak was discovered by Miller Pipeline while investigating a leaking air valve. The leak was only discovered after digging into the ground about 6 ft. It was decided that work would stop until Monday. On Monday it was discovered that the leak is a constant very subtle leak from underground. Our estimations as of 11/21/2022 is that roughly 4500 gallons were discharged in ground. The leak is ongoing and will be addressed next Monday, due to the short holiday week. The event is still ongoing. We are not able to isolate the filter. If we did, we would risk an overflow of the other filters with one filter offline. On Monday 11/28/22, Miller Pipeline will continue the investigative dig and the flow will be isolated from the filter in question. 11/21/2022 01:36 PM Water Reclamation Facility #2 (FLA 010680) 4200 SE 24th ST; Ocala FL; 34471 Marion Jeff Greve Lead Operator jgreve@ocalafl.org (352) 572-0486 Operator of the Facility/Installation Jeff Greve (352) 572-0486 jgreve@ocalafl.org 29.162112 -82.078502 11/19/2022 02:45 PM Yes Incident Location
