City Sewers Current Construction

Venice Pumping Plant Discharge Manifold Replacement Project

The project work includes a temporary bypass, installation of a new manifold with valves and stub-outs at both ends for a future force main connection, a connection of the new manifold to the existing 48-inch force main, demolishing the existing manifold and pump discharge piping, connecting the five pump discharge pipes to the new manifold, and removal of the bypass system. The work also includes minor structural improvements to the outside of the pumping plant.

Construction will impact Hurricane Street in the immediate vicinity of the pumping plant including the portion of Hurricane across Canal Court (across the street from the pumping plant). Street parking and some residential access will be limited by the construction.

  • A new manifold with discharge pipes will be built.
  • Construction period: late summer 2012 through early summer 2015. Weather or other circumstances could shift the work schedule.  Neighbors will be informed as conditions warrant.
  • Construction will generally take place Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., and on major streets from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. to minimize traffic impacts.
  • Estimated Cost: $3.58 million.
