The Water and Sewer Expansion Authority was established in 2003 for the purpose of addressing challenges experienced by the approximately 175,000 homeowners dependent upon septic systems in connecting to municipal water and sewer.
Many of these septic systems are aged and failing, which not only causes difficulties for homeowners in those areas but presents environmental challenges to Duval County creeks and waterways.
The Murray Hill project was the largest multi-phased construction project ever undertaken by JEA/City of Jacksonville, which included the installation of a sanitary citywide sewage system designed to eliminate private failing septic tank systems and the installation of city water systems. Project specifics include construction of over 20,000 feet of water main, approximately 31,000 feet of gravity sewer, 8,000 feet of storm drain, box culverts and a sewage pump station in the Murray Hill neighborhood.
Included in the scope of work, the contractor has replaced individual water service and reconnected them to the City/JEA Water System using a new digital metering system, other improvements made include milling and resurfacing the roadways, removal and replacement of driveways, curbs, gutters, and grass that is disturbed during the construction process to return the sites to pre-construction condition.
