The discharge totaled approximately 10.96 million gallons and was discharged from the WPCP Effluent and entered an unnamed tributary leading to Taylor Creek. The spill was due to 5.7” of precipitation that occurred on Wednesday and Thursday, March 4 and 5, which impacted the plant’s treatment capabilities.
