A construction contract was awarded in November to the lowest qualified bidder, Gianetti Contracting Corporation of Pompano Beach, FL.
 
The contract has recently been fully executed and is proceeding with preparations to commence construction in early April.  The engineering firms that will be involved with this project are ARCADIS US, INC., Kimley Horn and Associates (Thomas Jensen, P.E., Project Engineer), and JLA Geosciences, Inc.  As we get closer to construction more details for contacts during construction will be provided.
 
Property owners may be contacted by representatives of these firms prior and during construction; your responsiveness will assist proper service and timely completion of the project.
 
As details are available concerning schedules this site will be updated and Mayor Comerford will be advised.
 
 
Little Oaks/River Oaks Gravity
  
A Notice of Intent to Assess was approved by the District Governing Board at the April, 2014 Regular Meeting, to provide a gravity sewer system.  District staff will be working with engineering firms in the next couple of months to develop a required scope of services to be performed, and obtain a proposal.
 
At the June Governing Board meeting, a contract was awarded to Mathews Consulting, Inc. to provide engineering services (including design, survey, permitting, bidding and construction services) for the River Oaks/Little Oaks gravity sewer project.
 
The Construction Contract was awarded to Foster Marine Contractors, Inc. at the June, 2015 Board Meeting.  An Open House was held on August 5, 2015.
 
Construction has begun and is scheduled to be completed in April, 2016.
 
A second pipe crew was added to the project on November 5, 2015.  Road restoration has begun.
 
The District obtained Grant monies from the Loxahatchee River Preservation Initiative for this project.  The credit will be applied to the Regional Connection Fees.
 
All pipe work has been completed and dewatering operations have ceased.
 
Road base is being installed, driveways repaired, pipes are being tested, and restoration is well under way.  The Lift Station site will be particularly active as it is prepared for FPL service and start-up.
 
 
Peninsular Road Low Pressure
  
This neighborhood consists of four remaining houses on a peninsular into the Loxahatchee river south of Riverside Drive.  Residents have been notified of the proposed sewering program to provide low pressure sewers in this area, along with estimated costs.
 
The District Governing Board has approved a Notice of Intent to Assess which has been filed in the public records.
 
 
SE Rivers Edge St.
  
A Notice of Intent to Assess was filed in March, 2014.  The road is privately owned and maintained.
 
Property owners have received a request for easements to the private road for installation of the sewer system.
 
The District solicited easements from property owners in order to proceed with this project.  The request for easements under the current program is offered for a limited time only.
 
Turtle Creek Phase I
  
A contract for engineering services was awarded to Holtz Consulting Engineers for design, permitting, bidding and construction services for properties between 10 and 32 SE Turtle Creek Dr. and 34 - 36 SE Tortoise Ln.
 
The Gravity sewer system will be extended to these properties from SE Club Circle.
 
If you have not received a Sanitary Sewer Service Location form by now you will be receiving one shortly.  It is very important that you fill out and return this form to assure that your service is placed in the proper location to minimize your costs when making connection to the sewer system.
