A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on Sept. 20, 2022, near 2 S. New Warrington Rd. (Manhole # 19006398) due to a grease and rag blockage in the sewer main. The overflow was estimated at 230 gallons, of which 200 gallons were recovered 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 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 FDEP.
