Loveland Master Lift Station and 48-inch Gravity Interceptor Project Construction Update
CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Jan. 15, 2020) – Over the past few months Charlotte County and its contractor, Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. discovered and verified deficiencies in numerous sewer structures after installation. Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. has agreed to an acceptable correction plan to rectify the deficiencies. Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. will initiate this correction action plan starting along Kings Highway and moving east to Loveland Boulevard.
Construction for the Loveland master lift station and 48-inch gravity interceptor will re-commence this month. Work includes dewatering the ponds along the west side of Kings Highway and completing the required corrective action plan of sewer structures. Anticipated completion of this segment is Winter 2020. Overall project completion is Winter 2021.
This project is constructing a master lift station and a major 48-inch wastewater gravity interceptor to transfer wastewater to the East Port Water Reclamation Facility. This project will improve the operation and efficiency of a substantial number of lift stations in the mid-county area. The new lift station will be constructed on the east end of the project site.
