San Carlos Pumping Station

San Carlos PS

The San Carlos pumping station was placed into service in 1981. Several of the station’s components are original and have reached the end of their useful life. The station currently uses (3) pumps. Pump #1 and Pump #3 are variable speed pumps rated at 37,000 gpm (1500 hp). Each of these pumps are controlled by a medium voltage eddy current clutch system. Pump #2 is a variable speed pump rated at 13,400 gpm (250 hp). This pump is controlled by a variable frequency drive. The station discharges through a force main consisting of 48” pipe that connects directly to the Howard F. Curren Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The station rehabilitation shall include, but is not limited to the following: replacement of all pumps, motors, pump discharge valves, electrical and control components, flow meters, other equipment needed to restore station reliability and provide improved operation, building and other improvements needed to accommodate and provide suitable environment for selected equipment.

Cypress Street Outfall

Cypress St. Outfall

The project includes but is not limited to design, construction and perform public relations for a major storm water conveyance system along Cass Street from North Boulevard to Rome Avenue and Rome Avenue from Cass Street to Kennedy Boulevard and Gray Street from Rome Avenue to Armenia Avenue.

The project consists of the design and construction of approximately 7300 linear feet of box culvert, laterals, inlets, interconnections to the existing stormwater system, and associated utility construction and/ or relocation. The Design-Build effort shall incorporate, to a practical extent, green solutions as part of the proposed stormwater infrastructure. Solutions include, but are not limited to, treatment systems appropriate for an urban area such as rain gardens, vortex separators, filters, baffle boxes, pocket ponds and wetlands to reduce pollutant loading on the Hillsborough River and Hillsborough Bay.

Harbor Island FM

Harbour Island FM

The Harbour Island Force Main was placed into service 1951. The force main conveys wastewater from the Krause Street Pumping Station in Downtown Tampa to the Howard F. Curren Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. The original pipeline consists of 11,134 LF of mostly 54” reinforced concrete pressure pipe. Three segments of the pipeline have been previously relocated due to development. Approximately 8,910 LF of the existing pipeline is to be replaced or rehabilitated.

The scope of the design-build contract will include:

  1. Route study for the selection of the best alternative location.
  2. Route study should include public acceptance, safety, maintenance accessibility, use of existing right-of-way, environmental impacts, permitting complexity, traffic impacts and potential for contaminated soil or groundwater.
  3. Complete design of selected alternative route.
  4. Complete permitting through all local, state, and federal agencies.
  5. Easement acquisitions including all surveying.
  6. Construction of selected alternative.
  7. Public Relationship activities needed to maintain a positive response to the project from affected neighborhoods.

Water Main Improvements

Water Main Improvements

The project includes, but is not limited to, design and construction of, and performing public relations for, various non-contiguous water main replacement projects throughout the central portion of City’s water service area. The project consists of the design and construction of approximately 115,000 linear feet of potable water distribution main and appurtenances, as replacement for existing older water mains.

Upper Peninsula Watershed Drainage

Upper Peninsula Watershed Drainage

The project includes but is not limited to design, construction, public relations, and related work for a major stormwater trunk line. The project consists of the design and construction of approximately 8,100 linear feet of box culvert, laterals, inlets and associated utility construction and/or relocation, commencing at the Estrella Street outfall to Old Tampa Bay, and terminating at the intersection of Dale Mabry Highway and Watrous Avenue. The Florida Department of Transportation is responsible to design and construction the final leg of this system on Dale Mabry Highway from Neptune Avenue to Henderson Boulevard
