Pump Station # F3155 CR535 Master, 10-11-2020 The discharge of untreated wastewater from Pump Station F3155 was caused by an electrical short circuit within the panel variable frequency drive (VFD) system. This short circuit caused the panel main breaker to trip which disabled incoming commercial / generator power. This in turn caused the pump station wet well and connected gravity system to surcharge and discharge from the wet well hatches and OCU manhole F31550004. The loss of power triggered a SCADA alarm which allowed Field Services staff to respond quickly to end the discharge. The discharge impacted paved and unpaved surfaces within the pump station parcel and the intersection of Winter Garden Vineland Road and Provence Drive. It then flowed down grade and entered two storm water swales along the east right-of-way of Winter Garden Vineland Road. The wastewater pooled in these swales and was completely recovered by staff including wash water used to clean the impacted surfaces. Deodorizer was also applied to the area. The pump station is now back in normal operation. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 16,000 gallons released, 17,000 gallons recovered, 0 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 10/11/2020 14:13 EDT OCU Wastewater Pump Station # F3155 CR535 Master 9603 Winter Garden Vineland Rd; Orlando FL; 32836 Orange Eduardo C.

BC-18 Spill 10.10.20 At approximately 0730 on October 10, 2020 we were notified of an alarm at the lift station BC-18. When the collections tech arrived at the site the site was overflowing with wastewater. The water flowed behind the station into a retention area. The site was pumped down using a bypass pump and all overflow stopped at about 0900. An estimated 20,000 gallons of wastewater spilled from the lift station. Smith Industrial Services was call and pumped out the spilled wastewater from the retention area. The retention area and ground surrounding the lift station was then treated with lime over the affected areas. 10/10/2020 17:35 EDT BC-18 3213 Bob Jones Dr.; Directions: Turn off of HW 390 onto Harvard Blvd heading north.

Lift Station 63 Manhole B4 The operator reports that at 0929 hrs he was notified of a manhole discharging through its lid within the collection system. After further investigation it was learned that a rain guard insert from under a manhole lid had fallen into the collection system and became lodged downstream of the affected manhole. The rain guard insert was partially obstructing the flow path of the gravity sewer through the manhole. As the upstream lift stations cycled on and off, it caused an intermittent discharge to occur. The two feed lift stations are not owned by the FGUA, as they are owned by the privatized housing contractor on Base. An exact volume of loss is undetermined. The overflow was discovered by USW maintenance staff at 0929, the problem was corrected, and the discharge ceased by 10:49 am. This portion of the collection system services approximately 200 residential units. Basing calcs on a 24-Hr event and assuming 100 gpd per unit, an estimate of 20,000 gallons could have possibly discharged from the collection system, neglecting the available storage capacity above the normal flow elevation within the gravity collection system. The spill affected the adjacent grounds, storm swales and possibly the outfall to Tampa Bay. According to the Maintenance Foreman onsite, crews responded before 10:00. Crews arrived onsite to determine the source of the blockage. Vac-trucks were dispatched to assist in accessing the blockage. By 10:16am the overflow had been stopped, the blockage removed and the collection system was returned to normal operation. Crews preceded to clean up the area immediately around the manhole that had signs of toilet paper on the ground. Rakes were used to collect what could be seen and 250lbs of Lime was spread on all areas that could assumed to be affected. USW and GSG management arrived on site to assist and determine the extent of the overflow. Odor and cloudy water was observed in the upstream portions of the storm swale. Odor and cloudy water were not observed near the downstream portion of the storm system prior to entering the outfall to the Bay. Upon observation US Water management directed its staff to evacuate all visible groundwater from the swale system downstream from the event and take samples in 4 locations along the storm system path. The evacuation of groundwater from the storm sewer system commenced at approximately 10:55 and was completed by 15:00. Vac Trucks remained onsite until all groundwater had been removed from the swales. Approximately 22,500 gallons of groundwater were removed from the storm system and disposed of at the wastewater plant. The following sampling plan was immediately initiated. Samples were collected, at the point of discharge (POD)to the Bay, and at locations along the storm swale. The following parameters are being analyzed: CBOD 5 , dissolved oxygen (DO), Enterococci. These steps shall continue until the surface water criteria are reached. Results of the sampling shall be reported to the EPC weekly upon receipt. The State Watch Office and Public Notice of Pollution have been notified. 10/10/2020 08:23 EDT MacDill Air Force Base 9109 Bayshore Boulevard; Tampa  FL; 33621 Hillsborough Bobby R Romeo Quality Control bromeo@uswatercorp.net (352) 281-0768 Operator Of the Facility Bobby R Romeo (352) 281-0768 bromeo@uswatercorp.net 27.842684 -82.469466 10/09/2020 09:20 EDT No 10/09/2020 10:50 EDT Incident Location
City of Sarasota Cardinal Place Spill A Verizon contractor boring 5G conduit throughout the City bored through an 8" PVC force main at 2610 Cardinal Place. City crews immediately responded to the site to shut down the lift station and take steps to contain the spill. Tankers were used to haul the wastewater from the lift station until repairs were complete. The damaged section of pipe was removed and replaced. Approximately 3,000 gallons of raw wastewater was spilled at the site. Crews were able to recover approximately 1,000 gallons. The remaining wastewater entered the storm drain that flows to Sarasota Bay. Samples will be collected. The affected area was treated with lime, hosed down and vacuumed up. 10/10/2020 07:31 EDT City of Sarasota AWWTP 1750 12th Street; Sarasota FL; 34236 Sarasota Verne Hall Utilities General Manager verne.hall@sarasotafl.gov (941) 661-1347 Owner Of the Facility Verne Hall (941) 661-1347 verne.hall@sarasotafl.gov 27.31 -82.538 10/09/2020 11:20 EDT No 10/09/2020 13:00 EDT Incident Location
DWU WWTP Headworks An intermittent spill of raw wastewater occurred this morning between approximately 0925 and 0940 at our existing headworks structure (14 industrial Park Lane). Influent to the headworks was bypassed at the time of the spill for maintenance of the Flow Equalization Basin pump station. The spill was a result of rags overwhelming the secondary bar rack at the equalization basin and backing up into the screening channel. Wastewater escaped the channel intermittently during high flows. An estimated 3500 gallons total overflowed the channel with approximately 1200 gallons making it out of contained areas to the surrounding ground. The affected areas were chlorinated/limed and the headworks was placed back into normal operation at 1115. The captured flows were returned to the WWTP for processing. No water bodies or stormwater was effected as it was contained on the WWTP. 10/09/2020 23:56 EDT Destin Water Users, Inc 14 Industrial Park Lane; Destin FL; 32541 Okaloosa Monica M.
