In 2008 Tropical Storm Fay made landfall in Florida bringing with it extreme rainfall levels and flooding. The City of Titusville, located on the East Coast of Central Florida, was prepared for this event. The City's Water Resources Department activated its emergency operating procedures the week prior to and throughout the storm. During the storm and the resulting flooding that followed, the City recorded only nine (9) Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO) and continuously met its stringent reclaimed water treatment standards at both treatment plants without bypassing. Extreme weather events, such as a Tropical Storm, can highlight the maximum capacity in your systems. It is impractical for Utilities to design their collection and treatment systems to handle these extremes; therefore preventative maintenance, event preparation and management, and most importantly well trained and motivated employees are vital to coping with these situations.
