[ARCHIVED] SSO Statement 126 Corporate Drive 06082022

On 6/8/2022 Collection system crews were checking stations following electrical storms from the previous night. At Cadillac lift station, a lightning strike had impacted the station and one pump (pump two) was faulted out. After resetting the faults, the pump was still unable to run. The vendor was contacted and we pulled both pumps. The vendor inspected the pumps. Pump two had a bent shaft and pump one had a seal failure. A bypass around the station has been installed and will remain in place while the pumps are being repaired/replaced. The spill was discovered at 8:00 a.m. and continued until 6:00 p.m. when the bypass was completed. An estimated 12,000 gallons of wastewater overflowed onto the ground and into Mill Creek.  Signage has been placed at the creek and lime was applied to the area of the overflow.
