Riverview (Phase 1) Water Improvement Project

Project Objective

Working in partnership with the City of Jacksonville, a contractor working for JEA will soon be installing a new potable water line that will serve the Riverview neighborhood. The first phase of this project, funded by the City of Jacksonville, will involve the full installation of new water lines in the public right-of-way and the installation of fire hydrants.

Town Meeting – UPDATE

Due to concerns over Hurricane Irma, the town meeting to discuss the upcoming Riverview Phase 1 Water Im-provement Project on September 7th has been cancelled. The City of Jacksonville and JEA will notify residents within the project boundary once an alternate meeting date and time have been established. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

 

Connecting to the New JEA Water Line

Once completed, property owners interested in obtaining water service will be responsible for paying  JEA connection fees, private on-site plumbing costs and obtaining the associated permits required to make the connection from your home to the new water line located in the right-of-way. Connection to the new water system is completely voluntary.

Utility Tap In Program (UTIP)

The City of Jacksonville understands that not all residents may be able to absorb the costs associated with connecting to the new City water system. Federal and/or State affordable housing funds are available through the City’s Housing and Community Development Division Utility Tap-In Program (UTIP). This financial assistance is for qualified owner-occupied homeowners in the form of a deferred payment loan that pays for all the costs associated with the connection of your home to the JEA water system.
