Palm River Project map

PALM RIVER – AREAS 1 AND 2
The Palm River project replaces aging water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure within the Palm River neighborhood along portions of Cypress Way East and Palm River Boulevard, Golfview Drive, Pompano Drive and Eastwood Drive.  The project also includes improvements to two existing wastewater pumping stations. As part of the improvements, water and sewer service lines will be replaced. Clay sewer pipes will be replaced with new PVC pipes. This work may need to take place on private property and permission from the owner will be obtained, as necessary. Rehabilitation of the stormwater collection and treatment system will take place in the right-of-way. All driveways will be restored to their previous condition or better and all roads will be rebuilt. A new sidewalk will be installed along a section of Cypress Way East. This project will ensure a continued high level of utility service for the community.
