Sanitary Sewer Overflow

A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on May 21, 2024, at the end of Tranquility Lane, south of River Rd. due to a broken 12-inch sewer force main. The overflow was estimated at 45,000 gallons. ECUA crews diverted an additional 97,500 gallons from the overflow point to nearby lift stations via vacuum trucks and septage haulers, preventing further spillage. The overflow was contained on the ground 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 State Warning Point, the Escambia County Health Department, and the FDEP.
