Just to provide more clarification on the recent “Go Big, Go Fast” advertisement the City of Fort Lauderdale released regarding their Infrastructure Projects’ update, it omitted what the impetus was for doing these projects.
The State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) found the City in violation of releasing untreated wastewater from their wastewater collection and transmission systems into surface waters and/or groundwaters as identified in quantities and dates released. Accordingly, the City was mandated by DEP to institute immediate corrective actions as listed in the below attached DEP Consent Order.
The Wastewater Pump Station (WWPS) B-10 located in Imperial Point is one of many improvements the City is compelled to correct to avoid having raw wastewater spillage incidents such that occurred along Imperial Point Drive in June of this year. The City has agreed to schedule an on-site meeting with Imperial Point residents in a few weeks to explain the WWPS B-10 construction schedule and Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) impacting the traffic patterns along Imperial Point Drive and connecting streets. Once this meeting date has been determined, we will post this date/time/location on the web-site for all who are interested in attending.
