Deep Creek Sewer Force Main

Project Description

This project involves removing and replacing the sewer force mains within the road right of ways and utility easements. The project starts at the East Port Reclamation Facility, across I-75, and through the Deep Creek neighborhood ending at the Angol Street lift station. These new sewer force mains will increase transmission capacity for the Deep Creek neighborhood. Road construction, which includes road cuts, will occur at Rampart Boulevard, Deep Creek Boulevard, Rio de Janeiro Avenue, and other cross streets for the project. We also will be making pumping improvements at several sewer lift stations along the same corridor.

Project Location

Throughout the Deep Creek neighborhood starting at Rampart Boulevard to Rio de Janeiro Avenue along the east side of the roadway and ending at the Angol Street lift station.

**Please be aware you may be seeing trucks removing and dumping wastewater from or to manholes and lift stations in the area for this project. While crews are installing a new sewer force main along Rio De Janeiro Avenue, we need to maintain flows by pumping. You will also see Charlotte County Utilities pump trucks at this location as we need to utilize multiple trucks. This is a continuous operation while the construction occurs from approximately 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Construction will start at the East Port Water Reclamation Facility and will move east. Construction materials are being stored at the corner of Sandhill Boulevard and Rio de Janeiro Avenue. 

Crews are working on Phase 2 of the project. This work will occur on Rio De Janeiro Avenue, heading north towards Deep Creek Boulevard.
