A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on June 24, at 13542 Perdido Key Dr. due to a broken sewer force main. The overflow was estimated at 1,900 gallons, of which 1,800 gallons were recovered by vacuum truck and transported to an ECUA water reclamation facility for proper disposal and treatment. The overflow was contained on site and bacteriological sampling was not required.
ECUA crews repaired the force 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.
