Force Mains to be Replaced in Belleair Beach
BELLEAIR BEACH - On Monday, December 3, Pinellas County Utilities began work to replace the aged sanitary sewer force mains in two Belleair Beach pumps stations (#96 & #97).
The work will affect the following areas:
The contractor will be using a portion of the right-of-way along the sea wall on Belle Isle Ave. to store pipe and equipment during the project.
The old 6-inch cast iron pipe will be replaced with a new pipe material, high density polyethylene pipe (HDPE). The contractors, Rowland Inc. and Equibore, will use horizontal directional drilling (HDD) in order to minimize disruption in the area.
The work is expected to be completed before the upcoming holidays.
