TWA Sandhill WRF In-Plant Lift Station On June 27, 2019, starting at approximately 9:00 AM, a partially treated wastewater spill occurred at the in-plant lift station at the Toho Sandhill WRF. The station has three 3 pumps that alternate based on flow and a spare on site, for a total of four pumps on site. Two pumps were in for repair, and two in the station. One of the two in the station failed, causing the spill. The operators immediately contacted the mechanics and the faulty pump was delivered for emergency repair. A bypass pump is being located to the site and will be in place by end of today. Operators are limiting flows to in-plant lift station to mitigate spills by turning of dewatering operation until malfunction is corrected. The State Watch Office was notified immediately and produced incident report #2019-3539. The spill is estimated to be approximately 10,000 gallons of partially treated wastewater, all of which flowed into the nearby storm drain, which is limited to on-site. No flows from storm drain to surface water are imminent. Toho will treat the area with lime regularly until such time as the in-plant lift station is back to normal operation. Toho will notify the Department once the bypass pump is placed at lift station, and will follow up once the station is back to normal operation. Toho will further give a final estimate if additional overflows occur during this malfunction event. 06/28/2019 08:36 EDT TWA Sandhill WRF  FL Osceola Adrian Brene Environmental Compliance Coordinator environmental@tohowater.com (407) 944-5016 Environmental Compliance Coordinator Adrian Brene (407) 944-5016 environmental@tohowater.com 28.31 -81.609 06/27/2019 09:00 EDT Yes Incident Location
St. Lucie Village Eff Discharge During a visit to the wastewater treatment plant site earlier this morning @ 0700 hrs the operator found the effluent/combined flow holding basin discharging. There have been rains in the local area over the past few days (>3"). The rains are believed to have added water to the current levels of the wastewater treatment plants RIBs as well as have increased the hydraulics received at the wastewater treatment plant, subsequently increasing flows through the treatment plant. The discharge is intermittent but still ongoing at this time. The contents of the discharge is the blend from the WWTP chlorinated effluent and the water generated by the RO system at the WTP from reject and well flushing. The operator will begin collecting daily samples of the discharge for ecoli and conductivity. We will continue to monitor and provide updates as required.

1315 Fouraker Rd A contractor drilling in the area and wanted to know how far down JEA sewer line ran. While attempting to lift the manhole cover, the cover flipped and hit the ARV inside the manhole causing it to break away from the force main and start releasing sewer. Lift stations and lines in the area were valved off for crews to complete work on the force main. Vacuum trucks were used to maintain control of release until the pipe could be repaired and a new ARV replaced. Sewer did enter the storm drain and released into Wills Branch Creek. Water quality sampling began on 6/27/19. 06/27/2019 15:28 EDT 1315 Fouraker Rd 1315 Fouraker Rd; Jacksonville FL; 32211 Duval Victoria Otto Environmental Scientist ottovl@jea.com (904) 465-7890 Incident Responder Victoria Otto (904) 465-7890 ottovl@gmail.com 30.300164 -81.783769 06/26/2019 08:45 EDT No 06/26/2019 13:15 EDT Incident Location
