Seminole Generating Station Wastewater Discharge Seminole Generating Station (SGS) personnel perform periodic maintenance to remove accumulated sludge from an on-site equalization basin which is an associated wastewater treatment unit in the facility┐s permitted NPDES discharge stream. To support this maintenance activity, SGS utilizes a temporarily staged fillable filter with earthen support berms. Sludge is pumped into the filter and residual water that passes through the filter is collected and pumped back into the equalization basin. While performing the above-described cleanout process on July 2, 2020, SGS experienced significant rainfall within a short period of time. The heavy rainfall continued and ultimately exceeded the maximum capacity of the berm containment which thereby caused a portion of the berm to fail at approximately 4:30 pm. SGS estimates that approximately 16,000-20,000 gallons of a mixture of wastewater and stormwater (pH 7.2 - 7.5) percolated into nearby grounds. Due to the excessive rain, the natural landscape of the area, and the well-drained soils, recovery of the released waters was not possible. It should be noted that the SGS property consists of approximately 2,000 acres. Seminole believes the released waters remained within the immediate area, within Seminole property, did not reach surface waters, and were not observed to have reached any conveyance pathways. The nearest property line to the equalization basin area where the incident occurred is approximately 1,500 feet away. Accordingly, Seminole is not aware of and foresees no threat to human health or the natural environment as a result of this incident. 07/03/2020 10:48 EDT Seminole Generating Station 890 N Highway 17; Directions: Entrance 5.6 mile north of Highway 17/Highway 19 intersection in Palatka; Palatka FL; 32177 Putnam Justin Gostnell Senior Environmental Regulatory Specialist jgostnell@seminole-electric.com (813) 244-4877 Corporate Environmental Ryan Hart (813) 739-1402 communications@seminole-electric.com 29.727349 -81.635063 07/02/2020 16:30 EDT No 07/02/2020 17:00 EDT Incident Location
