Occurrence: On May 4th, 2017, ESG responded to a sewer release call and discovered a sewer lateral had collapsed allowing debris to flow into the line causing a blockage downstream. The release was discovered at 3:22 pm and ceased when the blockage was cleared at 3:36 pm. The discharge was determined to be at a rate of 30 gallons per minute. There was a total of 420 gallons of wastewater that escaped from the sewer system. An estimated value of 300 gallons was recovered by utilization of a vacuum truck, while approximately 120 gallons made it into the waters of the state.
