A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on July 29, at 8420 Doris Avenue, after the area encountered a heavy rain event. The overflow was estimated at 12,455 gallons. 8,080 gallons were recovered by vacuum truck for transport to an ECUA water reclamation facility for proper treatment and disposal. Bacteriological sampling was provided.
ECUA crews repaired the force main and cleaned the overflow area with a biocide agent that abated any contamination concerns, per State protocol.
