96TH AVENUE NORTH PUBLIC UTILITY RENEWAL PROJECT

This project is part of the Naples Park Utility Renewal Project and includes the repair and replacement of water, wastewater and stormwater systems that service residents and businesses along 96th Avenue 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.

This project will 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 for the community.
