A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on April 16, at a manhole located in front of 8601 Winding Lane. The overflow was estimated at 3,500 gallons, of which 2,500 gallons were recovered by a vacuum truck and transported to an ECUA water reclamation facility for proper disposal and treatment. Bacteriological sampling has been initiated.
ECUA crews pumped down the overflow 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 State Warning Point, the Escambia County Health Department, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
