Asbestos Concrete Watermain Replacement

Description

The proposed project includes replacement of asbestos concrete (AC) watermains to meet the existing needs of water infrastructure identified to be in poor, deteriorating condition for the City of DeFuniak Springs. The AC watermains are some of the City’s oldest water infrastructure and those in need of replacement the most. AC watermains tend to crumble and deteriorate due to the materials in which they are constructed and exceedance of useful lifespan. The selected improvements will help in preventing further deterioration of existing infrastructure and reduce the City’s water dissipation. The proposed improvement project includes the replacement of approximately 40,350 linear feet (LF) of 6” AC watermains with 6” PVC, and upsizing 18,350 LF of existing 6” AC watermains with a 10” PVC. Replacement would provide better fire protection and increased pressure within the City’s Public Water System. A Request for Inclusion (RFI) was submitted to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) program on June 24th for consideration for funding at the SRF quarterly meeting scheduled for the 2nd Wednesday in August.
