Week 7: Downtown Water Maintenance Project, Phase 2

In January, ECUA began a maintenance project of the water system in the core of downtown Pensacola.   The purpose of this project is to improve flows and water pressure in this area, as well as maintaining water quality.

The next phase of this project takes us north of the downtown core to the N. Tarragona and W. Gonzales area.  Unidirectional flushing will start in this area and move systematically in a south and eastward direction toward the bayfront.  Flushing activities will not disrupt water service.  Valve replacement work will also occur and will begin on Sunday, June 4.   During this time, water service will be temporarily interrupted to isolated sections as crews work to replace old valves or install new strategically-placed valves.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, we will schedule and conduct most of the work at night.

Week 7 work is scheduled to begin on Thursday, December 14, and water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 

Thursday, December 14, from 9:00 p.m. to Friday, December 15 at 5:00 a.m.

  • Barcelona Street, between E. Gregory Street and W. Jackson Street
  • W. Belmont Street, between N. Devilliers Street and N. Barcelona Street
  • W. Larua Street, between N. Devilliers Street and N. Spring Street
  • W. Jackson Street, between N. Devilliers Street and N. Barcelona Street
  • N. Spring Street, between Belmont Street and Jackson Street

Map of properties affected by water service interruption (Red shaded areas)

A precautionary boil water notice for the affected area will be issued after water service is restored and will continue for approximately 48 hours.  Precautionary boil water notices are issued as part of standard protocol after any loss of water pressure, whether as a result of unplanned water outages or planned utility work.  For convenience, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes.  Guidelines for precautionary boil water notices are available on the ECUA website at this link: http://www.ecua.fl.gov/water-quality/boil-water-notices-and-why-we-issue-them.

Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure during the flushing activities.   Temporary discoloration of the water is common and possible as a result of the flushing/maintenance activities.  This is normal and may be corrected by running the cold water only at your faucet for ten to fifteen minutes.   These effects should be minimal, with absolutely no ill effects to customers' health and no long-term adverse impacts on the system.

Week 6: Downtown Water Maintenance Project Phase 2

Current Status: Alert Cancelled
Monday, October 23, 2017
02:18 pm CDT

In January, ECUA began a maintenance project of the water system in the core of downtown Pensacola.   The purpose of this project is to improve flows and water pressure in this area, as well as maintaining water quality.

The next phase of this project takes us north of the downtown core where some valve replacements and Unidirectional Flushing will occur.  Work will begin start in the N. Tarragona and W. Gonzales area and move systematically in a south and eastward direction toward the bayfront. Flushing activities will not disrupt water service.  Valve replacement work, however, will temporarily interrupt service to isolated sections as crews work to replace old valves or install new strategically-placed valves.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, we will schedule and conduct most of the work at night.

Week 6 work is scheduled for Monday, October 23, and Wednesday, October 25, and water service will be interrupted to the following areas: 

Monday, October 23, from 11:00 p.m. until Tuesday, October 24 at 7:00 a.m.

  • E. Gregory Street, between 10th Avenue and Alcaniz Street
  • 10th Avenue,  between E. Romana Street,  and E. Heinberg Street

A precautionary boil water notice for the affected area will be issued after water service is restored and will continue until approximately 48 hours.  Precautionary boil water notices are issued as part of standard protocol after any loss of water pressure, whether as a result of unplanned water outages or planned utility work.  For convenience, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes.  Guidelines to precautionary boil water notices are available on the ECUA website at this link: http://www.ecua.fl.gov/water-quality/boil-water-notices-and-why-we-issue-them.

Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure during the flushing activities.   Temporary discoloration of the water is common and possible as a result of the flushing/maintenance activities.  This is normal and may be corrected by running the cold water only at your faucet for ten to fifteen minutes.   These effects should be minimal, with absolutely no ill effects to customers' health and no long-term adverse impacts on the system.
