On December 10, 2017 at approximately 5:00 AM, a ten inch (10”) steel sewer force main ruptured at the intersection of South 22nd Street and Daytona Avenue. The rupture occurred approximately four feet (4’) below ground surface.
City Staff responded within thirty (30) minutes and began making necessary repairs. The force main break was repaired by 2:00 PM that same day with minimal sanitary service interruption to the public.
During the force main break, approximately 10,000 gallons of wastewater was spilled. Most of this was vacuumed up, and lime was applied to the affected area. None of the spill reached the Intracoastal Waterway.
Both the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Flagler County Health Department were properly notified.
The City apologizes for any inconvenience to residents in the affected area.
