Design–Build | City of North Bay Village Sewer Force Main Replacement Project

The Purpose:

Waste water from the City of North Bay Village had been pumped through a 42-year-old force main and traveled more than two miles to the City of Miami Beach to be processed. In 2009, the City initiated the replacement and re-routing of the force main that rested on the bay floor with a 16-inch force main that connects with the Miami-Dade County Water & Sewer Department (WASD) system, located to the west in the City of Miami.

The Project:

The project include the construction of approximately 13,650 linear feet of piping. The project limits are from NE 7 Avenue to 236 feet west of Treasure Drive along Galleon Street and along NE 80 Street, NE 79 Street, Adventure Avenue, North Treasure Drive and Jewel Avenue. The new points of connection are the City of North Bay Village’s Main Pump Station located at Galleon Street and Miami-Dade County’s force main at the intersection of NE 7 Avenue and NE 80 Street. The force main route includes three water crossings, one of which will cross beneath the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Public:

Media Relations Group, LLC, created a Public Involvement Plan (PIP) to reach residents, motorists, pedestrians and interested parties who stayed regularly informed during the construction process, with the City making every effort to reach out to the community. MRG assigned a Public Information Specialist (PIS) to address the concerns of the community and to minimize impacts to the traveling public. The PIS served as an all-day direct contact for residents to voice their concerns regarding dust, impacted access to homes, noise and other issues. Through direct mailings and door-to-door visits, fliers were distributed along the corridor to residents and the business community. MRG was also responsible for coordinating outreach efforts with the City of Miami and held two public meetings to keep the public informed of all construction efforts and potential impacts.
