Event Text

IRON DISCHARGE ABOVE NPDES LIMIT

"A discharge to the canal on June 5, 2006 had an Iron result above the NPDES limit. A sample of the discharge was analyzed on site using a non-approved method, which showed the result was well below the NPDES limit. Off-site lab results were received on June 16, 2006, which showed the Iron was above the NPDES limit, 650 ppb. The lab results were re-analyzed and the re-analysis on June 22, 2006 verified it was above the permitted limit. In the past, the onsite testing were comparable to the offsite lab tests."

The lab results were 720 and 950 ppb. This information was transmitted to the Department of Environmental Protection.
