Week 5: Downtown Water Maintenance Project Phase 2

Current Status: Alert Active
Tuesday, September 19, 2017
03:54 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 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 5 work is scheduled for Wednesday, September 20, and water service will be interrupted to the following areas: 

Wednesday, September 20, from 10:00 p.m. until Thursday, September 21 at 5:00 a.m.

  • N. 9th Avenue, between E. Lloyd Street and E. Gadsden Street
  • E. Gadsden Street, between N. 9th Avenue and N. 12th Avenue
  • N. 9th Avenue, between E. Lloyd Street and E. Cervantes Street
  • E. DeSoto Street, between 10th Avenue and N. 9th Avenue
  • E. Strong Street, between N. 10th Avenue and N. 9th Avenue

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 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. 

For more information, customers may contact ECUA Customer Service at (850) 476-0480 for assistance.

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 3 work is scheduled to begin on Thursday, June 29, and water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 

Thursday, June 29, from 10:00 p.m. to Friday, June 30 at 6:00 a.m.

  • E. DeSoto Street, between N. 9th Avenue and N. Davis Hwy.

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 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.

ECUA TO BEGIN UNIDIRECTIONAL FLUSHING OF WATER LINES IN DOWNTOWN AREA

Current Status: Alert Lifted
Friday, May 19, 2017
08:48 am CDT

Update: 6-14-17  This project has been canceled due to inclement weather and will be rescheduled.

As part of the Authority’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, the ECUA has scheduled a water main flushing program in designated areas of downtown Pensacola.  This effort will span several months without interruption to water service, and as little inconvenience as possible.

Week 1
The first scheduled flushing work will be on Tuesday, May 30, Wednesday, May 31, and Thursday, June 1, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day.  In order of progression, the project area for this section of work includes the following: 

1.       Guillemard St. between Gonzalez St. and Jackson St.

2.       Palafox St. between Desoto St. and Brainerd St.

3.       Tarragona St. between Gonzalez St. and Cervantes St.

4.       Hayne St. between Brainerd St. and Cervantes St.

Residents and businesses located in the designated areas area may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure.   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 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.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes.

For more information or details, please contact Daniel Corliss, project engineer, at (850) 969-6677.

ECUA Downtown Water System Maintenance Project - Section 16

This past summer, 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 is scheduled to begin on January 4 and end on February 19.  The ECUA sent a notification letter to all customers in the project area in mid-December.  Once this next phase of the project begins, water service will be temporarily interrupted to 16 separate sections of the downtown core.  Each area is expected to be affected for two to four consecutive nights.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, ECUA will schedule and conduct most of the work at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and we will restore service in the early morning hours. Any water service interruption will typically last from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Section 16 work is scheduled to begin on Sunday, February 12, and water service will be interrupted per the following schedule:

Sunday, February 12, from 9:00 p.m. to Monday, February 13 at 5:00 a.m  
Monday, February 13 from 9:00 p.m. to Tuesday, February 14 at 5:00 a.m
and potentially: Tuesday, February 14 from 9:00 p.m. to Wednesday, February 15 at 5:00 a.m.

•  N. Palafox Street, from Gregory Street to Cedar Street (Section 16 on Overall Project Map -- see below)

A precautionary boil water notice for the affected area will be issued after the first night’s work and will continue until approximately 48 hours after the work is completed in each section.  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, and restaurants' staff may need to make advance preparations for any planned events.  Guidelines to precautionary boil water notices are available on the ECUA website under the News & Reports tab.

Crews will flush lines after work is completed.  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. It is important for residents to refrain from using the utilities during the shutdown period. Doing so may result in sediment or discolored water being pulled into the household plumbing.

Section 14: Downtown Water System Maintenance Project

Current Status: Alert Lifted
Wednesday, January 25, 2017
01:19 pm CST

Final Update: 1/30/16, 9:40 a.m. - The precautionary boil water notice is lifted and this section is complete!

Update 1: 1/27/17, 8:15 a.m. - Work for the night of 1/26/17 was successfully completed and a precautionary boil water notice is in effect for this section (see Section 14 in area description below).  We expect to lift the precautionary boil water notice in about 48 hours.  

---

This past summer, 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 is scheduled to begin on January 4 and end on February 19.  During this time, water service will be temporarily interrupted to isolated sections of the downtown core.  Each area is expected to be affected for 2 to 4 consecutive nights.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, we will schedule and conduct most of the work at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will restore service in the early morning hours -  typically from 9 pm to 5 am.

Section 14 work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, January 24, and water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 

Thursday, January 26, from 9:00 p.m. to Friday, January 27 at 5:00 a.m 
Friday, January 27, from 9:00 p.m. to Saturday, January 28 at 5:00 a.m 

•  Commendencia Street, from E. Main Street to E. Cedar Street (Section 14 on Overall Project Map -- see below)

•  E. Cedar Street, from Commendencia Street S. Palafox Street

A precautionary boil water notice for the affected area will be issued after the first night’s work and will continue until approximately 48 hours after the work is completed in each section.  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.

Crews will flush lines after work is completed.  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. It is important for residents to refrain from using the utilities during the shutdown period.  Doing so may result in sediment or discolored water being pulled into the household plumbing.

Update: 1/14/17 8:45 a.m. - Bacteriological sampling results indicate the potential health risk is no longer present.  This alert is now lifted. 

Notification of Sanitary Sewer Overflow: 2906 West Gonzalez Street

Through an abundance of caution and in accordance with Florida Department of Environmental Protection Emergency Rule 62-4.161, ECUA is issuing the following public notice: 

A Sanitary Sewer Overflow -SSO- occurred on January 12, 2017 at 2906 West Gonzalez Street (M/H #13658) due to a grease blockage in the sewer main. The overflow was contained on site and estimated at 170 gallons, of which 10 gallons were recovered and discharged into the ECUA collection system for proper disposal and treatment.

 

ECUA crews cleared the blockage and ensured that the overflow area was cleaned and disinfected with a biocide agent that abated any contamination concerns, per State protocol.   For this reason, the limited volume, as well as the contained nature of the release, the ECUA does not believe that this event poses any risk to public health, safety, or welfare.  

 

In accordance with standard operating procedure, the ECUA also notified the Escambia County Health Department, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the State Warning Point.

This past summer, 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 is scheduled to begin on January 4 and end on February 19.  During this time, water service will be temporarily interrupted to isolated sections of the downtown core.  Each area is expected to be affected for 2 to 4 consecutive nights.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, we will schedule and conduct most of the work at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will restore service in the early morning hours -  typically from 9 pm to 5 am.

Section 5 work is scheduled to begin on Thursday, January 12, and water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 


Thursday, January 12, from 9:00 p.m. to Friday, January 13 at 5:00 a.m
Friday, January 13, from 9:00 p.m. to Saturday, January 14 at 5:00 a.m 

•  E. Gregory St.  from N. Alcaniz St. to N. Palafox St. (Section 5 on Overall Project Map-- see below)

A precautionary boil water notice for the affected area will be issued after the first night’s work and will continue until approximately 48 hours after the work is completed in each section.  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.

Crews will flush lines after work is completed.  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. It is important for residents to refrain from using the utilities during the shutdown period.  Doing so may result in sediment or discolored water being pulled into the household plumbing.

Planned Water Service Interruption, Downtown Water System Maintenance Work: Week 23

As part of the Authority’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, the ECUA has scheduled a water main flushing program in designated downtown Pensacola areas for Fall 2016.  Flushing water mains requires the temporary interruption of water service.  In preparation for this project, ECUA crews will be replacing old valves and inserting additional valves at strategic points in the distribution system over the next few months.  This valve work will help isolate and minimize the areas impacted by the interruption of water service during the flushing activities and during any future water system utility maintenance work. Water service will also be temporarily interrupted while this valve work is performed.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, most of the work will be scheduled at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will be restored in the early morning hours.

This week's scheduled valve work segments will be on December 11.   Water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 

Sunday, December 11, from 10:00 p.m. to Monday, December 12 at 4:00 a.m

  • S. Alcaniz St., between E. Romana St. and E. Government St.
  • E. Romana St., between S. Tarragona St. and S. Alcaniz St.
Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure.   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 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.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes and to prepare for the likely precautionary boil water notice that would be issued under a separate notice.

Planned Water Service Interruption, Downtown Water System Maintenance Work: Week 20

As part of the Authority’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, the ECUA has scheduled a water main flushing program in designated downtown Pensacola areas for Fall 2016.  Flushing water mains requires the temporary interruption of water service.  In preparation for this project, ECUA crews will be replacing old valves and inserting additional valves at strategic points in the distribution system over the next few months.  This valve work will help isolate and minimize the areas impacted by the interruption of water service during the flushing activities and during any future water system utility maintenance work. Water service will also be temporarily interrupted while this valve work is performed.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, most of the work will be scheduled at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will be restored in the early morning hours.

This week's scheduled valve work segments will be on November 9 and 10.   Water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 

Wednesday, November 9, from 9:00 p.m. to Thursday, November 10 at 5:00 a.m

N. Alcaniz St., between E. La Rua St. and E. Chase St.

Thursday, November 10, from 9:00 p.m. to Friday, November 11 at 5:00 a.m

N. Palafox St., between E. Chase St. and E. Garden St.

E. Chase St., between N. Palafox St. and N. Tarragona St.

Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure.   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 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.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes and to prepare for the likely precautionary boil water notice that would be issued under a separate notice.
