City Commission to Discuss Water Main Replacement in Coral Hills

City Votes on Water main

By Bryan Boggiano

Coral Hills could be in for an infrastructure upgrade. 

The city commission will discuss replacing the cast iron water main in Coral Hills during their Wednesday meeting. They will vote on whether award Florida Engineering and Development Corporation a contract to replace the current infrastructure in Coral Hills.

The water main replacement will affect areas south of Wiles Road and North of Sample Road, between University Drive and Northwest 39th Court.

The contract amount is $1,098,504.18, and it includes $100,000 to cover any unexpected costs during construction, which the city would have to approve.

Funding for the project is part of the city’s capital improvement project. This includes funding for replacing existing underground cast iron pipes and installing new pipes throughout the city, according to city documents.

The existing infrastructure needs to be replaced to prevent emergency responses to water main breaks and water service disruption, according to city documents. 

Phase I of the water main replacement project includes installing 4,900 linear feet of water main to replace the existing cast-iron pipes due for replacement. 

Sixteen companies submitted bids to the city’s engineering division, and the division recommended Florida Engineering and Development Corporation. 

According to city documents, the company completed projects of similar size, scope, and complexity in a timely manner and within their allotted budget. 

The project will begin in Jan. 2022 and continue through Dec. 2022. 

The commission will discuss the Coral Hills Water Main Replacement project and other items on Jan. 5 at 6:30 p.m. in City Hall.
