BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA ( WFTV) – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is investigating another spill into the fragile Indian River Lagoon.

The city’s water reclamation facility pumped raw sewage into the water for more than a day. Regulators do not seem to think it will impact the lagoon much.

The DEP said the spill could not be removed from the water, but they said it will dissipate and dilute with the constantly moving water.

The DEP said a break in the line belonging to the Titusville Osprey Water Reclamation Facility caused the contamination Tuesday, but they did report and repair it quickly.

The lagoon is not a source for drinking water, but for 28 hours, that sewage spilled into the Indian River Lagoon.

It’s not the first spill in the area.
