General Information

These projects are currently in progress (Listed Alphabetically)

 
49th Terrace
 
Property Owners are being contacted by mail in regard to the proposed Low Pressure sewering and the District is in the process of obtaining easements.
 
Eagles Nest
 
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.

 

Project Update for March 26, 2014:

 As of last week, the Contractor has completed the installation of all of the gravity sewer pipe and all gravity sewer manholes.  The Contractor also started installing the force main (the pressurized pipe sections) on Phase 2 (Areas East of Old Jupiter Creek Crossing) from the new Lift Station #173 on South Golden Hawk to the connection point on Loxahatchee River Road. At the time of this update they have more than 85% of the force main pipe installed.

The Contractor continues to operate Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) for the Forcemain and Road Restoration Work and hopefully all of the Eagle’s Nest residents and their visitors have noticed the continued improvement with regards to safe and effective vehicle passage.  Maintaining and adjusting the MOT is a dynamic process and as the Contractor continues to complete components and sections of the project, the MOT will be consistently be assessed and adjusted to suit the changing construction activities. 

The Contractor’s Roadway crews have completed most of the  First Lift of Asphalt along Phase 1 Eagles Nest Drive (Areas West of Old Jupiter Creek Crossing). There is a small area that the material was too wet to pave at the Northwest Corner of the Subdivision that will be paved within the next few weeks. Additionally, the Contractor’s Roadway crew has begun the first of a four steps in reconstructing the roadway on both North and South Osprey and have already begun the same first step of the process on North Golden Hawk.  The four steps are 1) Building a stabilized sub-grade (the underlying support for the roadway), 2) Placing road rock (the direct structural support for the roadway), 3) Placing 1st lift of asphalt  (the underlying flexible pavement section), and 4) Placing the Final Lift of Asphalt & Striping (The Finished Product for a completed roadway).

In Phase 1, west of the Old Jupiter Creek, the Contractor’s Restoration crew has completed all concrete driveway apron work, with the exception of one (1), which has been postponed at the request of the property owner.  Additionally, the Contractor has re-contoured and sodded all of the swales, The Contractor has also fixed damages to the pre-existing home owner irrigation.

Please note, a formal Inspection by the Engineer and LRECD will be completed prior to project completion. We will comb the entire site for any outstanding restoration issues including irrigation repairs, unhealthy sod, mail boxes, driveway aprons, etc.

We appreciate your patience. 

Fox Run/Creekside Trail
 
A Notice of Intent to Assess was filed in December, 2013 for this project.  An Engineering services contract has been executed with Mathews Consulting, Inc. for the survey, design, permitting and bidding of the subject project.
 
Expected start of Construction  is Summer, 2014.
 
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.
 
The District will be working with Jupiter Inlet Colony and Tequesta on an Interlocal Agreement to provide gravity sewers, as requested.
 
Little Oaks
 
Property Owners have been surveyed for the type of service desired.  The preferred option of the District and a majority of the Property Owners was to have a Gravity sewer system.
