The CDD has contracted with ITS to replace deteriorated internal piping within the main irrigation pump station. This is a major project, which includes removal of the building's roof via crane and replacement of all piping. The work is tentatively scheduled for the week of 1/30. Please note that the normal 8am-12pm irrigation testing window will not be available that Tuesday, 1/31 and possibly Sat. 2/4. Normal irrigation should be available using our old well pump system, which is being tested next week.
The existing painted steel piping has deteriorated from inside, which is typical for this type of pipe in the Florida environment. It has developed pin holes at multiple locations which will progressively become of further concern. All piping will be replaced with schedule 40, hot dipped galvanized pipe, which will be cut and grooved on site. All pipe connections will be galvanized, groove and gasketed couplings. Work scope includes removal and replacement of roof, pump discharge piping, filter bypass piping and station internal discharge header piping.
