Notification of Sanitary Sewer Overflow: 4151 N. 12th Avenue

Through an abundance of caution and in accordance with Florida Department of Environmental Protection Emergency Rule 62-4.161, ECUA is issuing the following public notice: A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on December 7 at a manhole near 4151 N. 12th Avenue after a construction contractor working in the area damaged a manhole cover, which then fell into the sewer main and caused a blockage in the line.  The overflow was estimated at 5,500 gallons that may have reached Carpenter's Creek.  For this reason, ECUA determined that a potential health risk may exist and door hanger notices have been distributed to area residences. Bacteriological sampling of the area and Carpenter's Creek has been initiated.

ECUA crews repaired the main and ensured that the overflow area was cleaned and disinfected with a biocide agent that abated any contamination concerns, per State protocol.  In accordance with standard operating procedure, the ECUA also notified the Escambia County Health Department, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the State Warning Point.

Planned Water Service Interruption, Downtown Water System Maintenance Work: Week 22

Current Status: Alert Cancelled

12:57 pm CST

Planned Water Service Interruption, Downtown Water System Maintenance Work: Week 22

As part of the Authority’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, the ECUA has scheduled a water main flushing program in designated downtown Pensacola areas for Fall 2016.  Flushing water mains requires the temporary interruption of water service.  In preparation for this project, ECUA crews will be replacing old valves and inserting additional valves at strategic points in the distribution system over the next few months.  This valve work will help isolate and minimize the areas impacted by the interruption of water service during the flushing activities and during any future water system utility maintenance work. Water service will also be temporarily interrupted while this valve work is performed.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, most of the work will be scheduled at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will be restored in the early morning hours.

This week's scheduled valve work segments will be on November 21.   Water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 

Monday, November 21, from 10:00 p.m. to Tuesday, November 22 at 5:00 a.m

  • S. Alcaniz St., between E. Romana St. and E. Government St.
  • E. Romana St., between S. Tarragona St. and S. Alcaniz St.

Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure.   Temporary discoloration of the water is common and possible, as a result of the flushing / maintenance activities.  This is normal and may be corrected by running the cold water only for ten to fifteen minutes.   These effects should be minimal, with absolutely no ill effects to customers' health and no long-term adverse impacts on the system.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes and to prepare for the likely precautionary boil water notice that would be issued under a separate notice.

Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure.   Temporary discoloration of the water is common and possible, as a result of the flushing / maintenance activities.  This is normal and may be corrected by running the cold water only for ten to fifteen minutes.   These effects should be minimal, with absolutely no ill effects to customers' health and no long-term adverse impacts on the system.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes and to prepare for the likely precautionary boil water notice that would be issued under a separate notice.

Notification of Sanitary Sewer Overflows

Through an abundance of caution and in accordance with Florida Department of Environmental Protection Emergency Rule 62-4.161, ECUA is issuing the following public notice: 


Two Sanitary Sewer Overflows -SSOs- occurred on October 11 at the following locations:

  • 5900 Dahoon Drive. due to a small break in the sewer main.  The overflow was estimated at 5 gallons.
  • 4522 Saufley Field Road due to a grease blockage in the sewer main. The overflow was estimated at 625 gallons.  

ECUA crews made repairs to the main at Dahoon Drive and cleared the blockage in the main at Saufley Field Rd. and ensured that the overflow areas were cleaned and disinfected with a biocide agent that abated any contamination concerns, per State protocol.   For this reason, the limited volume, as well as the contained nature of the releases, the ECUA does not believe that these events pose any risk to public health, safety, or welfare.   In accordance with standard operating procedure, the ECUA also notified the Escambia County Health Department, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the State Warning Point where applicable.

Planned Water Service Interruption, Downtown Water System Maintenance Work: Week 17

Update: 10/12/16 – This precautionary boil water notice issued for the area of work performed on 10/11/16 is now lifted.  

Update: 10/12/16 – Work scheduled for 10/11/16 is complete.  This area is now under a precautionary boil water notice.  

As part of the Authority’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, the ECUA has scheduled a water main flushing program in designated downtown Pensacola areas for Fall 2016.  Flushing water mains requires the temporary interruption of water service.  In preparation for this project, ECUA crews will be replacing old valves and inserting additional valves at strategic points in the distribution system over the next few months.  This valve work will help isolate and minimize the areas impacted by the interruption of water service during the flushing activities and during any future water system utility maintenance work. Water service will also be temporarily interrupted while this valve work is performed.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, most of the work will be scheduled at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will be restored in the early morning hours.

This week's scheduled valve work segments will be on October 11.   Water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 

Tuesday, October 11, from 10:00 p.m. to Wednesday, October 12 at 5:00 a.m

  • S. Palafox St., between E. Garden St. and E. Romana St.
  • W. Garden St., between N. Spring St. and N. Palafox St.
  • E. Garden St., between N. Palafox St. and N. Tarragona St.
The following addresses/businesses ARE NOT affected by the planned outage because these locations are served by a main that is located in the alley behind the structures:
  • Elebash Jewelers, 36 S Palafox St.
