East and West Spring Lake Wastewater Expansion Project
Project Updates
On-Lot Home Connections:
Utilities staff is working with homeowners on making connections utilizing County staff or its approved contractor (Rohaley & Sons). Connection schedules are subject to change due to weather conditions and possible unforseen challenges.  Connections are currently ongoing in Contract B Phase 1 and Phase 2. Connections in Contract C Phase 1 are scheduled to begin in August. Letters dated Sept. 5, 2017 were mailed to property owners in Contract C Phase 2.  Sod restoration has been delayed due to a lack of available supply. We apologize for this inconvenience. 
Plumbing Contractor
Please be advised that the cost for connection to sewer is included in the property owner's MSBU assessment fee. As of July 2017 the only plumbing contractor approved as part of the assessment fee is Rohaley & Sons. The County shared this email after learning that residents received letters from a different contractor offering estimates for connection to the Charlotte County sewer system. 
Septic Failure

If you live in this MSBU area and are experiencing issues with your septic system, please call a plumber or septic service company first to assess the situation. Charlotte County Utilities may maintain failing systems in this area if the resident provides a receipt or report stating the system is in failure from a plumber of septic service company. Please call 764.4534 for further information.

Road Restoration

Public Works will pave the roads in the project area after all the homeowners' on-lot connections have been made in Contracts B and C. They will pave the Contract D area after the on-lot connections have been made in that area.

Contract B:
Work Schedule through Oct. 7, 2017
Contract D:
The large bag on the side of Harbor Boulevard is hooked up to the wellpoint discharge hose. The bag captures excess silt or bio-film so it can be properly disposed of. The water being discharged is permitted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.  Starting on Aug. 14, 2017, please be advised that steel plates will be temporarily placed in the roadway on Arlington Court. After the water main replacement, the road cuts will be filled and the steel plates will remain until the fill is dry; after which the steel plates will be removed.  Driveways will be permanently restored after all of the construction activity has been completed near each home.  In the meantime, the contractor will place millings (pebble or gravel) where the driveway was cut.   Construction staging areas will be at 157 and 159 Salem Ave, as well as 139 Francis Dr.  A fence and privacy screen will be placed on the perimeter of these properties. This project will be taken in multiple phases, starting with the streets on the east side of Harbor Boulevard, where –
  1. All the water mains will be installed
  2. The old water mains will be removed
  3. The new vacuum sewer mains will be installed
  4. Sewer service pits and laterals will be installed
  5. Storm drainage and crossings will be restored
  6. On-lot connections will take place, followed by sod restoration
  7. The roads will be re-paved by Public Works after the on-lot connections may have been made
