UTILITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
UTILITIES DEPARTMENT - SUMMARY OF KEY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
Harbor Estates (North & South Roads) Neighborhood Improvement Project
The Harbor Estates Neighborhood experiences periodic roadway flooding and standing water during heavy rainfall events, which has affected the residential property owners located in the vicinity of North and South Roads. To improve the quality and reliability of the Harbor Estates Neighborhood Utilities, the City of Boynton Beach will provide a new stormwater system that will collect the stormwater and discharge through four (4) shallow outfalls located along the north edge of North Road and one (1) shallow outfall at the southeast corner of the neighborhood. The project also includes replacing aging and undersized water mains and upgrading fire hydrants in the project area. A new roadway and curbing will also be provided.
The Project is under construction. The water main is complete and in service. The storm water is about 60% completed and road work has started. The entire project is estimated to be completed in November 2017.
Ion Exchange Resin Plant and East Water Treatment Plant Improvements
This Boynton Beach Ion Exchange project will increase the capacity of the East Water Treatment Plant to 24 mgd and provide an ion exchange resin system for polishing of the water quality, specifically for removal of color and organic carbon. Work will include rerating of the lime softeners; valve and actuator replacements; a new ion exchange system; and a new transfer pump station, ground storage tank, and high service pump station.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for this project was held on July 27, 2017.

NE 20th Avenue Drainage Improvements Project
The purpose of this project is to mitigate localized flooding within an existing residential neighborhood of 13 acres by decreasing the extent of inundated area water ponding duration during rainfall events. The project will also reduce nutrient loads to the environment and local waterways. In addition to the expected increase of resident’s satisfaction and wellbeing; the community will no longer be exposed to flooding repercussions, i.e.
*unable to access/egress dwellings due to water depth, extent of inundated area and water ponding duration
*damage to vegetation and property
*hindering school/work attendance
The Stats of the project consists of enhancement of City operations by installing approximately
*1,650 LF of 24-inche diameter exfiltration trench
*3,000 LF of swales
*25 Inlets and catch basins
*Substantial Completion: 120 days
*Contract amount of $614,369.13
*plus a 10% contingency of $61,436.91, for a total estimated amount of $675,806.04.
