Sewer Spill We are a subcontractor on a City of Clermont infrastructure project. Transfer pumping is being performed to by-pass a construction area which is upgrading the gravity sewer system. We installed two pumps. Each pump system is rated to handle peek flow rates provided by the City of Clermont. The system is rented from Thompson Pump. There is a primary and a secondary (backup) pump. The system has an auto-dialer that sends notification to a variety of individuals including Thompson Pump, the GC (Oelrich Const Co), The City of Clermont Engineering Dept, and us. We fueled and checked on the pump system at approximately 8pm Saturday (4/22). At that time the system appeared to be functioning correctly. Upon arriving at the project Monday morning (4/23) sewer was overflowing out of the pump manhole. Due to auto dialer failure no notifications were sent when the backup pump kicked on. We do not have an exact time of when sewer began to overflow. Incident start time is the time we first saw the overflow Monday morning. The incident was immediately reported to Thompson Pump and the City. Thompson dispatched a repair mechanic and got both pumps operational within a few hours.The City dispatched a pump truck and contained the spill at approximately 8:30am. At 4:30pm we received information from the GC to report the spill to the State Watch Office. We reported the incident to the State Watch Office at 4:35pm. The entire spill is contained in a recently constructed retention pond that has no connection to state waters or any storm system not entirely contained on the project site. At the time of the spill we estimate the retention pond contained 1.5 ┐ 2 million gallons of storm water. According to the City┐s lift station reports they estimate the spill at nearly 150,000 gallons. On Monday (4/23) we contracted for an independent lab to pull 4 samples of the retention pond water and paid for expedited results. The lab is testing for 6 indicators. We expect results on Wednesday (4/25). Once results are in hand we will develop a plan to address what is needed to achieve tolerable levels. I spoke to Nicholas Paseiro today (4/24) and will stay in contact with him with updates on our progress and findings. 04/24/2018 17:33 EDT City of Clermont Waste Water Collection System 904 W Minneola Ave; Directions: Off Hwy 50 turn North on 8th Street, continue N approximately 4 blocks, turn W onto W Minneola Ave and enter project site.

Spanish Main WWTP Solids Loss Event Upon arrival to perform visit, the operator found solids loss occurring to CCC and South effluent disposal pond. Upon further review it is believed that the solids loss was caused by increased hydraulics through the facility due to flows causing both surge tank pumps to engage simultaneously. The operator was able to make some adjustments to reduce internal hydraulics, and waste to lower clarifier sludge blanket. It is estimated that <2000 gallons was discharged to the CCC and effluent disposal pond. The operator is working to remove any accumulated solids from CCC. No solids loss was occurring upon departure. 04/18/2018 13:36 EDT Spanish Main RV Resort 12110 Spanish Main Resort Trail; Thonotosassa FL; 33592 Hillsborough Melisa Rotteveel US Water Services mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net (866) 753-8292 Operator Of the Facility Melisa Rotteveel (866) 753-8292 mrotteveel@uswatercorp.net 28.06489 -82.303525 04/18/2018 10:00 EDT No 04/18/2018 10:30 EDT Incident Location
