    The goal of this construction project is to make the community even better by improving our service and reliability to your neighborhood. Start and Completion dates are subject to change and do not include final restoration of the project area. Thank you in advance for your patience.

    Estimated Dates & Work Schedule

    Anticipated Start Date: 2017-10-09
    Anticipated End Date: 2018-06-30

    Start and completion dates are highly subject to change. 

    Project Objective

    Working in partnership with the City of Jacksonville, a contractor (TG Utilities, Inc.) working for JEA is installing a new potable water line in your neighborhood. The funding for this project is being provided by the City of Jacksonville and the construction will be managed by JEA.

    The project will be separated into two separate phases (phase 1 & 2). As part of the project, JEA will be installing a new water main, individual water services to the property line, water meter boxes and fire hydrants to improve area fire protection. Connection to the water system will be voluntary and  more information will be provided to customers on the JEA connection process & grant programs through future town meetings and project mailings.

    Town Meeting – UPDATE

    This project was delayed several weeks due to the impacts of Hurricane Irma. A project town meeting was scheduled and cancelled just prior to the storm. JEA and the City of Jacksonville will be rescheduling this meeting in the next few months to answer your questions and /or concerns. We have requested that the contractor move forward on construction activities to prevent any further project delays.

    Construction Conditions

    Construction will occur in the City’s streets, rights of way and easements. Motorists will be permitted to drive (with caution) through the construction area during pipe installation. There will be times when roads and driveways will have limited access while the contractor is installing the new water line.

    Over the next few weeks, the contractor will begin surveying, mobilizing equipment and locating existing utilities   within the project limits. This survey work will be used by our contractor to locate the public rights of way and existing utilities (JEA, AT&T, Comcast, etc.).

    Restoration of the Project Area 

    Restoration of the project area will be begin soon after the pipes have been installed throughout the project area. Any existing grass, curb, gutter, driveways, or sidewalks affected during construction will be returned to their preconstruction condition.

    Connecting to the New JEA Water Line

    Once completed, property owners interested in obtaining water service will be responsible for paying  JEA connection fees, private on-site plumbing costs and obtaining the associated permits required to make the connection from your home to the new water line located in the right-of-way. Connection to the new water system is completely voluntary.

    Utility Tap-In Program (UTIP)

    The City of Jacksonville understands that not all residents may be able to absorb the costs associated with connecting to the new City water system. Federal and/or State affordable housing funds are available through the City’s Housing and Community Development Division Utility Tap-In Program (UTIP). This financial assistance is for qualified owner-occupied homeowners in the form of a deferred payment loan that pays for all the costs associated with the connection of your home to the JEA water system.

    The goal of this construction project is to make the community even better by improving our service and reliability to your neighborhood. Start and Completion dates are subject to change and do not include final restoration of the project area. Thank you in advance for your patience.

    Estimated Dates & Work Schedule

    Anticipated Start Date: 2016-01-11
    Anticipated End Date: 2017-12-31

    NOTE:  Start and completion dates are subject to change. Crews will not be working on holidays observed by the City of Jacksonville. 

    Project Objective

    JEA is in the final construction stages of a project to upgrade our Mandarin Water Reclamation Facility located at 10828 Hampton Road. This facility is a regional sewer plant, treating an average of over 7.5 million gallons daily, with the ability to treat up to 8.75 million gallons per day and also reclaims treated wastewater for irrigation purposes. 

    Some of the equipment at this plant has reached the end of its service life and must be rehabilitated or replaced to keep the facility updated, modernized, reliable and structurally sound. In preparation for this project, upgrades to the exterior fencing were completed in April 2015 with the remaining construction to be completed in two phases.

    Project Phases

    Phase I: Completed May 2017
    Installation of new odor control systems, rehabilitation of existing concrete channel structures, demolition of existing grit removal systems, and the installation of new mechanical screens (used to screen debris before treatment). The new odor control units that were installed have exceeded JEA expectations and are removing over 98.6% of the odors at the plant. 

    Phase II: May 1, 2016 - March 31, 2017
    JEA has installed a 1.6 million gallon concrete storage tank, and is upgrading and expanding the high level ultraviolet disinfection system to increase the plants reclaimed water output. These upgrades will allow the plant to send nearly all its treated wastewater to the reclaimed water system for irrigation purposes and not to the St. Johns River for discharge.

    Construction Conditions

    While the construction will take place behind the fenced areas of the facility, you may notice increased large truck traffic in the area hauling and delivering equipment. We will do our best to complete this work as quickly and safely as possible. Once the project is completed, the plant will be more efficient, environmentally friendly and nearby residents should notice a substantial reduction in odors from the plant. 

    Additional information will be provided to the community throughout the project and updates will be posted to this website.

    The goal of this construction project is to make the community even better by improving our service and reliability to your neighborhood. Start and Completion dates are subject to change and do not include final restoration of the project area. Thank you in advance for your patience.

    Estimated Dates & Work Schedule

    Anticipated Start Date: 2017-05-08
    Anticipated End Date: 2018-02-28

    Regular working hours Monday through Saturday from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
    Start and completion dates are subject to change and extended hours may be necessary.

    Project Objective

    In the next few weeks, JEA’s contractor will continue working to install new infrastructure primarily along the west side of San Jose Boulevard/Hendricks Avenue (SR13) from Cornell Road to San Marco Boulevard. Construction has been temporarily delayed to coordinate plans for JEA to shift from day time construction work hours to evening and week-end hours. The change in work hours is necessary to lessen the traffic impacts along San Jose Boulevard and Hendricks Avenue.

    The project involves replacing and upgrading a portion of the JEA water and sanitary sewer lines in this area. This work is being completed ahead of a future Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) resurfacing and roadway project. When completed, these upgrades will provide better system reliability for JEA customers.

    Construction Conditions 

    Construction will occur in the City’s streets, rights of way and easements. Motorists will be permitted to drive (with caution) through the construction area during pipe installation.

    The contractor will be required to temporarily close one lane of traffic and the parking area along the shoulder of the road while working in the immediate area to install the new pipe. On occasion, the contractor will also be required to temporarily close portions of San Jose/Hendricks Avenue to install the pipe across the roadway. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding.

    Restoration of the Project Area and Paving  

    Restoration of the project area will begin soon after the pipes have been installed. Any existing grass, curb, gutter, driveways, or sidewalks affected during construction will be returned to their preconstruction condition. FDOT will schedule the final milling, paving and restriping of this area following their future roadway project.

    FDOT project dates listed are per the FDOT 5-year program and are subject to change. For additional information on FDOT projects, please contact Ron Tittle at ron.tittle@dot.state.fl.us or (904) 360-5457 or visit the FDOT website located at www.nflroads.com.
