Sand Point Park Sanitary Sewer Repair

Water Resources employees repairing sewer main in Sand Point Park stormwater pond


Over a five-day period, the City of Titusville Water Resources Department worked to complete one of the most complex repairs of its wastewater system experienced in 20 years: a leak in a sanitary sewer main located 15 feet below the surface of a stormwater pond and covered in a concrete slab. Titusville has been able to contain the majority of the discharge from the spill in the stormwater pond in which the sewer main was located and in a nearby stormwater pond by constructing an earthen dam, thereby minimizing the impact to the Indian River Lagoon. An estimated 7.2 million gallons of wastewater was discharged during this event and approximately 844,000 gallons of contaminated water from the ponds has been recovered and sent to the City’s reclaimed water facilities for treatment. Investigation as to the cause of the main failure is continuing and further details will be released when available.
