105th and 106th AVENUE NORTH PUBLIC UTILITY RENEWAL PROJECT

This project is part of the Naples Park Utility Renewal Project and includes the removal and replacement of water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure that services residents and businesses along 105th and 106th Avenues North between Tamiami Trail and Vanderbilt Drive. As part of the improvements, the contractor will be replacing water and wastewater service lines. Clay wastewater pipe laterals from the property will be replaced with new PVC pipe. This work may need to take place on private property and permission from the owner will be necessary. Stormwater collection and treatment system rehabilitation work will take place in the right of way. This project will also improve the ability to collect wastewater from Basin 101 for conveyance to the treatment facility to prevent overflows and ensure a continued high level of wastewater service to the community.

PROJECT PROGRESS UPDATE
January 25, 2023

The contractor finished installation of new 8-inch PVC water main and fire hydrant assemblies along the 500 and 600 blocks of both avenues. The new water mains were successfully pressure tested, flushed, and chlorinated and are currently in the process of bacteriological testing to obtain the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Clearance approval. The existing water meters were exposed, and existing water meter boxes were also removed, in anticipation of connecting new water services along the 500 and 600 block of both avenues.

The contractor anticipates connecting new water services, installing new backflow preventers and water meter boxes, and relocating existing water meters along the 500 and 600 blocks of both avenues once Florida Department of Environmental Protection Clearance approval is obtained within the next 30 days.
