Incident Description
On 8/16/19 at approximately 9:00 am, Manatee County Collections System staff became aware of a potential sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) near 3708 9th Street East in Bradenton. Upon arrival, staff found a manhole (MH 16608) discharging wastewater onto the pavement. This SSO was due to storm water intrusion into the collection system from significant rainfall causing the collection system to surcharge in this area and resulting in an overflow at a low point in the collection system. Tanker trucks were utilized to move wastewater from overflowing parts of the collection system to less heavily impacted areas to minimized SSO discharges. The total estimated volume of the discharge was 25,500 gallons which did enter a storm drain and may have potentially impacted storm water retention ponds.
