50901 Hwy 27, Davenport On Saturday, June 15, 2019, a discharge of approximately 33,750 gallons of raw wastewater was observed at the Northeast Regional Park, 50901 US HWY 27, in Davenport, by a Polk County Sheriff deputy whom resides on the property. Mr. Brian Turner detected a strong odor and conducted a visual inspection. The odor was determined to be coming from a break in a three-inch force main approximately 400 feet south west of a private lift station. (Polk County Facilities Division Lift Station No. #1). (This private lift station and three-inch force main are not owned by Polk County Utilities). At this time, the cause of the break is unknown. Polk County Utilities was notified at 6:54 pm and onsite at 7:30 pm on June 15th. The spill ceased at 9:30 pm and was contained by an existing berm on the property. No water bodies were impacted by this spill. The closest area noted is a dry retention pond that was not affected. None was recovered. Due to the heavily saturated ground and limited light at the time of incident, completion of the repair measures had to be postponed. On June 16th, at 1:00 pm, Polk County Utilities completed the necessary repairs needed for the three-inch line and limed the area for disinfection. 06/16/2019 09:26 EDT Northeast Wastewater Treatment Facility FLA012967 200 Westview Drive; Davenport FL; 33837 Polk Summer Collazo Environmental Coordinator II summercollazo@polk-county.net (863) 298-4112 Polk County Utilities Jeff Goolsby (863) 221-1213 jeffgoolsby@polk-county.net 28.328 -81.665 06/15/2019 18:55 EDT No 06/15/2019 21:30 EDT N Incident Location

Sludge overflow at Marathon Area 5 WWTP Marathon Service Area 5 WWTP located at 506 106th St. Marathon Florida 33050: Approximately 850 gallons of waste sludge was spilled over the side of the digester tank this morning at approx. 0500. All of the sludge was sucked up with the vacuum truck. The area was disinfected with liquid chlorine bleach. The spill occurred when the utility company cut power then restored it which apparently reset the sludge pumping circuits. The pump ran all night and cause the overflow until the operator came in this morning and found it. The tank has a high level alarm but it apparently was damaged or disabled during the current construction project. We will be investigating the failure of the alarm and making the appropriate repairs to prevent this from happening in the future. 06/15/2019 11:23 EDT City of Marathon Area 5 WWTP 506 106th Street; Marathon FL; 33050 Monroe Daniel Saus Utilities Director/City of Marathon sausd@ci.marathon.fl.us (305) 289-5009 Owner Of the Facility Daniel Saus (305) 289-5009 sausd@ci.marathon.fl.us 24.728892 -81.039871 06/15/2019 05:00 EDT No 06/15/2019 09:00 EDT Incident Location

Cool Breeze Drive, Reclaim Main, 06-13-19 The discharge of reclaimed water was caused by a contractor performing trenching operations near the east right-of-way of Tradeshow Boulevard. The contractor┐s equipment bucket made contact with the eighteen inch ductile iron reclaimed water main which caused a six inch split/crack to form and subsequently discharge reclaimed water on to adjacent unpaved land. No other surfaces, stormwater drains or water bodies have been impacted. Field Services staff have reduced the reclaimed water system flow in this area to stop the discharge from continuing to impact unpaved land. At this time the main is continuing to discharge at a low rate (100 GPM) into the original excavation pit where it is being maintained by a portable pump. The pump discharge flow is being sent into a nearby Orange County Utilities manhole. Approximately 15,000 gallons has been recovered from the excavation pit with the use of a tanker and the remaining volume is going to be recovered with the use of the portable pump. Final recovery volumes will be provided in follow-up reporting. Complete repair of the damaged main and recovery operations were delayed last night due to heavy rainfall. Field Services estimate the repair of the main to be completed by the contactor in the next 24 to 48 hours. The approximate gallons released and recovered are estimated to be as follows: 38,000 gallons released, 15,000 gallons recovered, 23,000 gallons unrecovered, and 0 gallons discharged to surface water. There is little or no potential risk to public health, safety or welfare. 6/14/18 - Update - The damaged reclaim water main has been repaired at approximately 10:30 AM on 6/14/18. A portable pump that was left onsite to maintain the excavation pit recovered a total of 117,000 gallons and that volume was returned to a nearby OCU manhole. No other surface impacts have occurred today. Recovery from the impacted unpaved land could not be made as the discharged reclaimed water was partly absorbed into the ground and continuing heavy rains have continued to dilute any remaining volume. 06/14/2019 07:41 EDT OCU Reclaimed Water Distribution System ; Orlando FL; 32819 Orange Eduardo C.

City Manhole Overflow at Twig Terrace and 137th No surface water impact, therefore, no State Watch Office Incident Number. A City of Largo contractor (UTI) was performing sanitary sewer repairs and plugged the sewer line to restrict flow to the repair area. This plug caused a nearby manhole to overflow, as it was four feet shallower that others along the line. The manhole overflowed for approximately 20 minutes. When the contractor was advised of the issue, he pulled the plug and the line cleared. City crew arrived at the area and washed down the spill. There was no impact to surface water. Contractor was advised to have Vactor assistance at hand for any future work. Approximately 800 gallons was spilled. 06/13/2019 14:51 EDT City of Largo AWWTF 5100 150th Ave North; Largo FL; 33760 Pinellas Vivian Gleaves Environmental Manager vgleaves@largo.com (727) 518-3061 Environmental Manager Vivian Gleaves (727) 518-3061 vgleaves@largo.com 27.886 -82.827 06/12/2019 13:55 EDT No 06/12/2019 14:15 EDT Incident Location
