A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on Oct. 16 at approximately 2000 Ft. N of Blue Angel Pkwy. & Dog Track Rd. due to damage to an Air Release Valve -ARV-. The overflow was estimated at 30 gallons, of which 10 gallons were collected by vacuum truck and transported to an ECUA water reclamation facility for proper treatment and disposal. The overflow was contained on site and bacteriological sampling was not required.
ECUA crews repaired the damaged valve and cleaned the overflow area with a biocide agent that abated any contamination concerns, per State protocol. In accordance with standard operating procedure, the ECUA notified the Escambia County Health Department and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
