At 8:00 a.m. on November 22, 2019, an employee was checking water levels at the Brye Road Booster Station Altitude Pit. The employee entered the Brye Road Boos ter Station Altitude Pit, which was considered a permit-required confined space, to determine the source of rising water levels and to take appropriate correcti ve action. Because the employee did not show up to work the following day and t he employee's wife indicated that he had not returned home the previous evening, a coworker traveled to his last known location (i.e., Brye Road Station) and di scovered the employee unresponsive at the bottom of the pit and called 911. The employee was transported to the hospital and died at the hospital. The employe e died from the intraparenchymal hemorrhage of the brain and hypertensive cardio vascular disease.
