Alternate A1A 16-inch Force Main Extension Loxahatchee River District spilled approximately 750 gallons of untreated wastewater while conducting scheduled rehabilitation and upgrade of a 24-inch diameter wastewater force main at southwest side of Alternate A1A and Riverside Drive in Jupiter, FL. Contractor lined the excavation around the pipe as we cut in new valves, pipes, and fittings. Pump trucks and vacuum trucks were used to recover any wastewater discharged into the lined excavation area. As work progressed the liner was disturbed, which resulted in approximately 750 gallons of untreated sewage being spilled into the open excavation area. A dewatering pump being used to keep the excavated area dry likely captured the spilled wastewater and discharged it through the dewatering system and ultimately to the Loxahatchee River in the vicinity of the railroad bridge. 03/24/2019 14:47 EDT Loxahatchee River Environmental District 2500 Jupiter Park Drive; 202 Riverside Drive, Jupiter fl.; Directions: Southwest section of Glynn Mayo Hwy. and Riverside Drive intersection; Jupiter FL; 33458 Palm Beach Kevin Skellenger Field Superintendent kevin.skellenger@lrecd.org (561) 747-5700 Field superintendent Albrey Arrington (561) 222-9992 albrey@lrecd.org 26.949614 -80.088836 03/24/2019 01:10 EDT No 03/24/2019 04:00 EDT Incident Location
