A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on July 9 at 8420 Doris Avenue due to a surcharge of stormwater entering the sewer collection system. The overflow was estimated at 600 gallons, all of which were captured 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 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. For more information, customers may contact ECUA Customer Service at (850) 476-0480 for assistance.
