Project Objective

A contractor working for JEA (Garney Construction) is contining work on the third and final phase of an overall project to construct a new water transmission pipeline between two major water treatment grids located in JEA’s Duval County service territory. This project will allow JEA the ability to transport excess water supply from the north side of the St. Johns River to the south side of the river to better meet increased Potable Water demand in the southerly portion of the JEA service area.

Once the new water transmission line is constructed and placed on-line, it will result in a direct offset of water withdrawal from the South Grid. Once completed, this project will promote conservation of the Floridian aquifer by lessening JEA's water resource withdrawal demand from its southern Raw Water well fields.

This third and final phase of the project involves the installation of approximately 41,200 feet of 30-inch ductile iron water main from the JEA electric easement at the end of Validus Dr to the Greenland Water Treatment Plant on Philips Hwy (US 1).

Construction Conditions

Construction will occur in City and State rights-of-way and easements, and within the electric transmission line easement(s) located near homes and businesses. For the safety of crews and the general public, temporary road closures and detours will be required while work progresses along the project route. During the course of this work, access to your residences and businesses will be maintained.  JEA will send emails to notify residents directly impacted by these temporary road closures and detours in advance.
