SSO Pocahontas LS 583 Okaloosa County Water & Sewer (OCWS) experienced a sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) last night at our Pocahontas Lift Station, located at 943 Pocahontas Drive in unincorporated Fort Walton Beach. Last night at approximately 8:45pm, OCWS was notified by the public of a potential sewer spill along Pocahontas Drive. OCWS soon responded and discovered a SSO resulting from a leak from a bypass hose fitting at the Pocahontas Lift Station site. Staff immediately turned off the bypass pump and restored the operations of the lift station, which stopped the SSO. OCWS estimates the spill to be approximately 1,400 gallons, with approximately 400 gallons flowing into a nearby storm inlet. Staff then cleaned and disinfected the affected area. After a more thorough review this morning, this storm drain in the Pocahontas Drive right-of-way has an outfall into Mills Bayou, which is a cove off of Cinco Bayou. The approximate 400 gallons of wastewater would have mixed and been diluted with stormwater; and then traveled through approximately 750 feet of storm drain piping with an outfall into Mills Bayou located at 501 Pocahontas Drive. Staff conducted a thorough on-site review of the storm drain and outfall this morning, and there was no evidence of a wastewater spill. As a precaution, the Florida Department of Health will soon be issuing a Health Advisory for Mills Bayou. Water quality sampling and testing will be underway soon. OCWS drinking water remains unaffected by this incident. We at OCWS pride ourselves in minimizing and preventing SSOs, through proactive projects and other measures. On this particular situation, with one of the lift station pumps having an issue, as a precaution, staff had a brand new bypass pump and hoses setup on-site as a proactive measure. With an above-ground bypass pump and hoses setup, there is inherent risk of a SSO. Unfortunately, a float malfunction caused the bypass pump to turn on, and then a fitting on an above-ground hose loosened a bit, causing the leak. We are happy that OCWS field staff members were taking proactive measures and want them to continue doing so. After this SSO, staff has taken additional measures in the operation of this station to further minimize the risk of an SSO. 02/04/2023 04:19 PM Arbennie Pritchett WRF 250 Roberts Blvd.; Fort Walton Beach FL; 32547 Okaloosa Darren Alford WW Operations Manager dlalford@myokaloosa.com (850) 651-7133 Operator of the Facility/Installation Mark Wise (850) 651-7171 mwise@myokaloosa.com 30.434622 -86.618588 02/03/2023 08:45 PM No 02/03/2023 09:00 PM Incident Location
Brittany Bay Private Lift Station SSO A private lift station manhole overflowed due to possible pump failure. A service provider was contacted to test the pumps and repair or replace them if necessary. Since the pumps could not keep up with incoming flow, a pump truck was hired to pump down the wet well. The facility was instructed to keep the pump truck available to pump down the wet well as needed. Approximately 1750 gallons of wastewater was released and flowed into a stormdrain. The stormdrain discharges to a ditch/canal leading to Long Bayou. Water samples were collected and signs posted. 02/04/2023 03:47 PM Brittany Bay Apartments 1201 Seminole ; Directions: NE corner of apartment complex; Largo FL Pinellas Stacy English Environmental Control Supervisor senglish@largo.com (727) 507-4491 Rep of receiving wastewater treatment plant Stacy English (727) 507-4491 senglish@largo.com 27.905681 -82.783455 02/04/2023 08:10 AM No 02/04/2023 11:05 AM Incident Location
