Third Pump Station Construction Update: Overnight Construction Activity Delayed – Rescheduled for Tuesday, January, 5 2021
The pump deck concrete placement previously scheduled for Monday, January 4, will be postponed one day. The pour has been rescheduled for Tuesday, January 5 and will require early morning work hours. The contractor will arrive onsite by 2:00 a.m. At 4:00 a.m. concrete trucks will start arriving and are expected to run continuously until 1:00 p.m. The concrete finishing crews will be complete by 4:00 p.m. and evening work hours will not be required. The contractor will stage concrete trucks on Elkins Road, near the Oakland Drive intersection, to limit parking inside the neighborhood. Please remain aware of construction activity during this time.
The Third Pump Station is still scheduled to be in operation by Spring 2021, before the start of Hurricane Season. When complete, the Third Pump Station will operate seven large storm water pumps that are powered by 1,500-horsepower motors. When combined all seven pumps can move approximately 1,000,000 gallons of water per minute which represents a 400% increase in pumping capacity. Please contact FBCLID 2 directly with any questions or concerns: www.fbclid2.com/contact.
