Reclaimed Water main leak stopped
St. Petersburg, Fla. (July 20, 2018) – About 12,000 gallons of fully-treated Reclaimed Water leaked from a reclaimed waterline near 1200 block of 81st St. South in the Yacht Club Estates Neighborhood yesterday (7/19/2018).
It appears that a 1’ Reclaimed Water service line broke completely in two for unknown reasons, leading to the unauthorized discharge – which was reported at 10:18 am. Crews responded by 10:45 am and the discharge ceased by 12:00 pm.
Reclaimed Water ran to the catch basin on the above listed block and also into the storm drain system, which conveys to Boca Ciega Bay.
Crews were able to isolate the Reclaimed Water lines, make repairs to the service lines and quickly restore the main and service to operation.
