On September 2, 2017, between 12:45pm and 2:15pm we had approximately 7,500 gallons of partially treated wastewater bypass the tertiary filter at the wastewater treatment plant and discharge into Calico Creek. UV disinfection did take place during this time and all state agencies were notified. The bypass was due to high hydraulic loading which caused a recirculating pump to overheat and fail. Staff responded immediately to correct situation.
