- Indian River Avenue Force Main Replacement
- Mourning Dove WTP Improvements
- Osprey Nutrient Removal Upgrade
The City of Titusville has performed an analysis and modeling of its sewerage system and is moving forward with an aggressive schedule of pipe replacement and improvements to reduce and/or eliminate potential vulnerabilities to breaks and leaks and their negative environmental impacts.
Indian River Avenue Force Main Replacement
Replace existing force main from South Street to the Osprey Water Reclamation Facility on Buffalo Road.
Objective & Issues
Spills, leaks, and/or breaks from the Indian River Avenue sewer force main would have detrimental effects on the Indian River Lagoon.
Age, erosion, extreme weather (hurricanes & storms), maintenance, or human error, could all cause this main to fail, which would cause irreparable harm to this fragile estuary.
|Solution||Replace existing force main with new force main (9,400 feet of 16-inch PVC piping). New force main to be located on the west side (opposite from lagoon) of rights-of-way.|
|Demolition of the existing dewatering building, replacement of the existing dewatering trailer equipment with vacuum drum dewatering equipment, construction of a new dewatering building and secondary sludge thickener, and replacement of the existing recovery pond.|
Titusville Water Resources is currently partnering with both the Save Our Indian River Lagoon (SOIRL) Project Plan and the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) on the Osprey Nutrient Removal Upgrade Project. The project is to develop and construct biological, chemical, and physical process upgrades that will reduce the Total Nitrogen (TN) and Total Phosphorus (TP) in the reclaimed water (treated effluent) produced by the plant.
