ETM is managing JEA’s program to replace over 200 miles of failing galvanized pipe in over 36 neighborhoods in Jacksonville. The need for the program is driven by a continued increase in water breaks and leaks that occur as a result of galvanized pipe that has reached the end of its useful life. The program will result in improved water pressure and increased fire protection, which is currently lacking in many neighborhoods.
Our team’s scope of work for the first 70 miles of pipe includes project area scope definition, survey, SUE, design, contracting methodology, bidding support, and Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI) services.
The program includes collaboration with other agencies, existing continuing services contracts, and other JEA watermain and Septic Tank Phase Out projects.
It is estimated that by the end of 2023, JEA will have replaced 80,000 LF of outdated galvanized pipe countywide.
