These projects are currently in progress
Residents were notified of proposed sewering in August, 2010.
Sewer Location forms have been received from all property owners.
Design and Permitting are completed. Bidding was conducted during March, 2013 and Contract for construction was awarded at the April, 2013 Board Meeting to Ocean Bay Construction, Inc.
An Open House was held on May 21, 2013 providing residents an opportunity to meet with the contractor, engineers and District representatives to discuss any questions. Anyone interested in receiving copies of the information provided at the meeting may call the District Administration Office (561) 747-5700 x104 to request a copy be sent or you may pick it up at the District office.
It has been brought to our attention that many residents have sprinkler lines within or near the right of way that may be damaged during construction. The contractor requests that these sprinkler heads/lines be marked so the line can be capped off, so the rest of the irrigation system can function until the sprinkler is restored. Property Owners should retain the sprinkler heads.
The District will provide flags for this purpose, if needed, to mark these lines. Contact the District Engineering Department at (561) 747-5700, x110.
Progress Report - November 7 2013:
Unfortunately, this project is moving slower than the Residents, Contractor, District or Project Engineer would like.
At this time the District has limited options to cause the contractor to work more expeditiously, however, the District and project engineers are continuously evaluating the contractor's progress (or lack thereof) and working with the contractor to modify his work plan in order to meet the project completion schedule established in the contract.
Phase I (including Eagles Nest Drive from the culverts north to the end and Talon Way) was to have been completed the week of November 8th, including paving the 1st lift of asphalt on Eagles Nest Dr. from the culverts to Talon Way and all of Talon Way.
Preparation of the road for paving was recently approved by Palm Beach County for the installation of the road base rock in the next week, with paving to follow. During the road building process residents will continue to experience vibration as the rock is rolled into place and graded.
The contractor will continue to install sewer main on the north end of Eagles Nest Drive. Once that is complete, the contractor will begin work in Phase I.
District staff is available to assist you with any specific questions or concerns you may have. Please direct your inquiries to Albrey Arrington or Clinton Yerkes.
The design of a low pressure sewer system to serve 3 residential lots has been completed. A Notice of Intent to Assess was filed in October, 2013.
River Drive West
A low pressure sewer system to serve 2 residential lots is currently being designed. A Notice of Intent to Assess was filed in October, 2013.
Florida Fish & Wildlife Building
Plans are complete and permitting in is process. A Notice of Intent to Assess was filed in October, 2013.
The design of a low pressure sewer system to serve Tequesta Park has been completed. A Notice of Intent to Assess was filed in October, 2013.
Jupiter Inlet Colony
The District has received a completed hydraulic study. Recommended upgrades are in process. A meeting was held with Dr. Arrington and residents on November 27, 2012.
Notice of Intent to Assess was approved by the Governing Board at the February, 2013 regular meeting.
A Contract was awarded to Arcadis, Inc. at the March, 2013 Board Meeting to perform survey and preliminary engineering for the proposed sewering and survey work has begun.
A joint meeting of the JIC and District Boards was held on April 17, 2013 to present the District's reasons and plans for sewering and respond to resident questions.
ARCADIS engineers are proceeding with survey work started last month in the Colony and will be moving forward with locating underground utilities and establishing floor elevations where little information exists in the near future. This information will be used in developing a preliminary design report to assist in determining the costs and construction issues of gravity and low pressure systems.
Toney Penna Drive Industrial Area
Property owners were notified of the sewer project in June, 2010 and Property Owners have been notified of the District's Notice of Intent to Assess.
A contract was awarded to B&B Underground in the amount of $156,657.55 for construction of the gravity system to serve Toney Penna commercial properties.
Consruction was completed in September. Property owners were notified in October, 2013 of sewer availability.
Peninsular Road, Jupiter
This neighborhood consists of five houses on a peninsula 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.
Property owners have also been provided easement documents. This will reduce project costs if executed in a timely manner. This has been referred to District Legal Counsel to obtain easements.
Service line is available at Riverside Drive and Peninsular Road.
A Notice of Intent to Assess was filed in February, 2011 to construct sewers to the eight properties in this area. Preliminary Design and Survey has started evaluating feasibility of gravity or low pressure systems. This project is currently on hold pending the outcome of the Northwest Service Area Hydraulic Study and the target date has been rescheduled to 2014.
