Updated notice: After an investigation by Field Maintenance personnel and our Engineering staff we wish to update the total gallons loss from this event to 464,750 gallons. This was accomplished by analyzing our SCADA data and calculating the total amount loss by this method. Our SCADA data indicates the break occurred on or approximately the 1st day of June but was not discovered until June 5th. The area where the break occurred is in a highly dense area of vegetation which is not normally accessible to anyone and the force main was at a depth of 15ft. and emptied into a receiving manhole at the station. A portion of the spill went to a storm water retention pond which is being sampled for spill impact. All preliminary fecal results indicates that the spill did not reach Tampa Bay. Sample data is available if needed. 06/06/2019 09:17 EDT FB-AWWTP FL0040614  FL Hillsborough JON JOHANSON PROJECT MANAGER 11 JOHANSONJ@HILLSBOROUGHCOUNTY.ORG (813) 209-3088 PROJECT MANAGER 11 RICH CUMMINGS (813) 209-3003 CUMMINGSR@HILLSBOROUGHCOUNTY.ORG 27.88 -82.363 06/05/2019 19:30 EDT No 06/05/2019 23:00 EDT Y Hillsborough, Incident Location
