Partially treated sewage spill at Northeast Water Reclamation Facility

St. Petersburg (August 3, 2017) -- During heavy rains on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, a pump at the Northeast Water Reclamation Facility located at 1160 62nd Avenue NE failed and approximately 3000 gallons of partially-treated wastewater leaked onto the ground.

Upon further investigation, it was discovered that a pump sensor was inundated by the heavier flow of the plant due to the heavy rains. 

The entire spill was contained on site and there was no impact to nearby neighborhoods.
