ARV Failure at SUA Lift Station 110 20211227 SUA received a call on the emergency service line describing sewage blowing from the top of the manifold at Lift Station 110 into the air.

All of the sewage was spraying up in the air and landing back in the fenced area of the easement. There were no visible signs of sewage running out of the fenced area, and is believed to have been contained within the easement.

McKay Bay Waste-to-Energy Facility Cooling tower blowdown water and sewer water overflowed from the Facility┐s lift station due to a level reader malfunction and flowed into an on-site stormwater drain that connects directly to an on-site stormwater management system. The quantity released to the stormwater management system is unknown due to the type of system malfunction. The wastewater that was released into the stormwater management system did not reach the outfall structure, thus no discharge to off-site surface waters occurred. Again, no surface waters were impacted by this spill. 12/28/2021 10:46 AM City of Tampa's McKay Bay Waste-to-Energy Facility 107 North 34th Street; Tampa FL; 33605 Hillsborough Alexis Black Environmental Specialist II Alexis.Black@tampagov.net (813) 348-3229 Environmental Specialist for the Facility Alexis Black (813) 348-3229 Alexis.Black@tampagov.net 27.94919 -82.420626 12/22/2021 05:15 AM No 12/22/2021 05:15 AM Incident Location
