A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on February 18 at 1560 Cadence Loop due to a broken low-pressure force main. The overflow was estimated at 300 gallons, of which 200 gallons were recovered by vacuum truck and transported to an ECUA water reclamation facility for proper treatment and disposal. Bacteriological sampling has been initiated.
ECUA crews repaired the main 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.
