1126050 03/01/2024 Order Conditions During the late evening of Friday, March 1, 2024 and into the early morning of Saturday, March 2, 2024, the District's treatment plant experienced an unauthorized discharge with an estimated volume of up to 276,078 gallons of secondary treated wastewater. Time Occurred: 02/01/2024 10:57 to 02/02/2024 04:20. Sonoma Water staff were notified via SCADA that the treatment plant was experiencing an issue. A standby operator was dispatched to the plant and upon arrival observed that a discharge was occurring. At 4:20 am, the standby operator ceased the discharge and returned the tertiary filters to service. Violation B eSMR
1126183 03/01/2024 UAUTHDISC The unauthorized discharge of approximately 276,078 gallons of undisinfected secondary treated wastewater to a drainage ditch which flowed to the Russian River. The Russian River CSD/Sonoma Water provided a NOV Response Letter detailing corrective actions taken in a letter dated April 18, 2024. The response letter is ECM Document ID No. 10407815. Violation B Complaint
1121938 11/17/2023 Order Conditions On October 17 at 16:00 hours and continuing through October 18 at 06:00 hours there was a communications failure for our secondary effluent turbidity readings. All other compliance data was captured and there were no fluctuations in flow patterns outside of the normal diurnal flows. The final effluent turbidity during this same timeframe was well within the required turbidity range with an average turbidity of 0.45 NTU's and a daily maximum of 0.85 NTU's. Given these factors we believe that the secondary effluent turbidity remained in compliance. N/A Violation B eSMR
1112570 12/10/2022 Order Conditions Turbidity Other limit is 10 NTU and reported value was 12.529 NTU at INT-001A. Additional testing continues to investigate 1) Why did the pump flow ramp up so fast upon restart, and 2) Why did the diversion valve not operate. Violation B eSMR
1111580 11/03/2022 DMON No sample for Total Hardness was collected at the Russian River Upstream location RSW-001 for November. Upstream Hardness is a monthly requirement during discharge season while Effluent Hardness location EFF-002 is a grab once per discharge season requirement causing the confusion. Revisited permit requirements with staff, specifically the EFF-002 compared to RSW-001 monitoring frequency differences. Violation B eSMR
1108535 08/09/2022 DMON The well was dry and monitoring could not occur in August as the permit requires. Plan to try and resample in November along with GW-001 and GW-002. Violation B eSMR
1102117 03/02/2022 LREP Annual SMR ( SUMRPT ) (Annual Summary Report) report for 2021 (2415980) was due on 01-MAR-22 Violation B Report
1102226 03/02/2022 LREP Annual SMR ( SUMRPT ) (Annual Summary Report) report for 2021 (2577311) was due on 01-MAR-22 Violation B Report
1099499 12/07/2021 DMON The TDS sample for the upstream receiving waters (RSW-001) was not collected in December. There was some confusion in treading the new permit and TDS was mistakenly thought to be semi-annual not monthly. Permit Table E-8 has been re-reviewed and sampling COC's have been changed to reflect the monthly collection of TDS during discharge to surface waters. Violation B eSMR
1095871 09/30/2021 CAT1 Sodium, Total Monthly Average limit is 60 mg/L and reported value was 63.5 mg/L at LND-001. Accelerated monitoring weekly monitoring continued in October for the remainder of the land discharge season. Violation B eSMR
1095872 09/30/2021 CAT1 Sodium, Total Monthly Average limit is 60 mg/L and reported value was 63.5 mg/L at REC-001. Accelerated monitoring weekly monitoring continued in October for the remainder of the land discharge season. Violation B eSMR
1081637 10/17/2020 DMON The RR5 multiple tube Coliform test that was set on Sat, Oct 17th was marked completed on Sun, Oct 18th and discarded after 24 hours by mistake. It did not have the required 48 hours of incubation time. No result can be reported and this event will be documented as "Deficient Monitoring". Retraining for the Operators with specific instruction on paying close attention to dates, set times, and method requirements - multiple tube Coliform versus Colilert. Violation U eSMR
