The three water main replacement projects listed below are planned this year. The first two projects (Flower Way and Walden Avenue) are near completion. The last project (Polo Ridge Drive) began on June 1st and is expected to be substantially complete within three weeks.
Capital Improvement Projects Scheduled for 2020:
Flower Way – Located in the Kipling Villas subdivision, this project replaced 357 feet of 6-inch cement pipe in S. Flower Way between W. Arbor Avenue with 6-inch PVC pipe. The fire hydrant on the corner end of S. Flower Way was also replaced. Final paving for this project will occur by June 12. Click here to view map.
Walden Avenue – Located in the Meadows subdivision, this project replaced 377 feet of 12-inch ductile iron pipe in W. Walden Avenue between S. Independence Way and S. Hoyt Court with 12-inch PVC pipe. This relatively short segment of pipe has experienced four failures, with the most recent one in 2019. Final paving for this project will occur by June 12.

Polo Ridge Drive – Scheduled construction start date: June 1st: This project consists of replacing 788 feet of 12-inch PVC pipe in the Polo Reserve subdivision with 6-inch PVC pipe. This segment of the distribution system, on Polo Ridge Drive from Thoroughbred Run and the end of the cul-de-sac, is oversized for the number of connected customers. The existing pipeline was installed with the intention of connecting to and serving future development which is no longer feasible. Since this development was not constructed, the existing water main requires significant attention by operations staff to ensure water quality parameters are maintained. This projected is estimated for completion by the end of June. Click here to view map.
