The Twin Lakes subdivision SLR Roadway and Drainage Pilot Project will construct a “pump and treat” stormwater drainage system and elevate roads to a target elevation of 13 inches NAVD 88. The system includes drainage structures, a pollution treatment device, an elevated pump station with a backup emergency generator, pumps, piping, electrical controls, instrumentation, and injection well(s) for the final disposal of treated stormwater.
The drainage infrastructure and pump station equipment design require installing three phases of electrical power to the County-owned right of way on Lake Street, Shaw Drive, and Crane Street, which will house the pump station. This electrical power will be provided by Florida Keys Electric Cooperative.
The County has received a Florida Department of Environmental Protection Resilient Florida grant and is waiting for a Florida Department of Emergency Management grant, which is funded by a federal appropriation, in order to proceed with the construction project.
