UPDATE JULY 6, 2022
The valves have been installed in 13 of the outfalls. There are a few locations that may need additional sealing to block any possible water intrusion. With each rain event and high tide, we learn more about the benefits of the WaStop valve installation in Redington Beach.
UPDATE MAY 6, 2022
Phase 3 has begun. The valves have been installed in 4 of the 15 outfalls. The map below shows the locations of the valves that have been installed (red lines) and the locations where they will be installed (yellow lines).
UPDATE APRIL 1, 2022
All of the stormwater drainage pipes have been cleaned. The contractor also took videos of the inside of the pipes and created a map of the locations of every pipe throughout the Town. VIEW MAP HERE. The blue lines on the map indicate stormwater drainage pipes.
Here’s what you can expect during the next phase:
Outfalls will be measured for WaStop valve installation.
WaStop valves will be installed in 15 outfalls. (Pink areas on map.)
FEBRUARY 21, 2022 UPDATE: PHASE 1 AND PHASE 2 ARE COMPLETE!
Commissioner Richard Cariello, who is overseeing the project, was interviewed by ABC Action News. Here is a link to the video of the interview: ABC Action News Story of Storm Drain Project
On Monday, August 23, 2021, Seminole Septic began Phases 1 and 2 of the 4 phase storm drain system project. Phase 1 will remove the soft sediment from the Town’s stormwater pipes. As each pipe is cleaned, a video is made by sending a scope into the pipe to inspect its condition and map its location. Phases 1 and 2 are expected to be completed by January 2022.
