Lago Vista Sewer Spill On August 24, 2017, at approximately 7:00 AM, a raw wastewater spill began near 1200 Lago VistaCt in Poinciana. A grease blockage occurred between the master manhole and lift station #104, causing a spill inside a nearby clubhouse; the spill flowed to a floor drain which is believed to flow to a stormwater retention. Personnel were not able to determine whether the floor drain flows to stormwater or not, and the nearest water body leads to Lake Tohopekaliga, so surface water samples will be taken. The volume of the raw wastewater spill was estimated to be 10,000 gallons. The spill was stopped at approximately 10:30 PM that day. The State Watch Office was called and produced incident report #2017-6411. 08/24/2017 02:26 PM TWA Cypress West 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 28.185992 -81.413043 08/24/2017 07:00 AM No 08/24/2017 10:30 AM Incident Location

Discovery of groundwater contamination Shortly after midnight (Eastern Time) a resident reported a strong odor of gasoline on the campus of Pensacola State College in Pensacola. Caller indicated the sprinkler system was on during the night of August 21 and there was a strong smell of gasoline in the area. Campus police were notified and the fire department was called and responded to the incident. No fire hazard was identified. A nearby former gas station in the area is currently under state funded cleanup with ongoing remediation managed by DEP┐s petroleum cleanup contractor, Escambia County Department of Health. Previous releases from the gas storage tanks at the nearby gas station created a contamination plume underground. It is suspected that the contamination has migrated into the irrigation well water used in the sprinkler system at the college. DEP conducted a site visit on August 22. Preliminary field tests indicate potential petroleum in the irrigation well water. DEP collected water samples from the Pensacola State College irrigation well and another nearby irrigation well for analysis in DEP┐s lab. Both irrigation well owners have discontinued use of their wells. The community is served by a public water system and the potable supply well would not be impacted by the groundwater at this site. 08/23/2017 01:28 PM Pensacola State College 1000 College Blvd.; Pensacola FL; 32504 Escambia Florida Department of Environmental Protection State of Florida brandy.m.smith@dep.state.fl.us (850) 595-0695 Florida DEP Danny Deen (DOH Project Manager for cleanup site (850) 712-3722 Danny.Deen@flhealth.gov 30.480572 -87.204527 08/22/2017 12:10 AM No 08/22/2017 10:00 AM Incident Location
