Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
The Barbara Jean’s Restaurant had a failing on-site sewage treatment and disposal system. In order to comply with the Department of Health requirements, the restaurant initiated the design and permitting of an off-site force main for connection to the St. Johns County Utility Department’s collection system.
The force main design required coordination with JEA, United Water, and St. Johns County. JEA maintains the water distribution system along Roscoe Road and through United Water, recently upgraded the water main at the intersection of Roscoe Road and Canal Boulevard. At the time of construction, St. Johns County was in the process of constructing multiple stormwater upgrades along Canal Boulevard, which included the conversion of an existing swale into an underground stormwater collection and transmission system. In conjunction with the St. Johns County improvements, JEA was installing an 8” water main along Canal Boulevard to interconnect with St. Johns County.
As a result, the Barbara Jean’s force main was coordinated and routed around both existing and proposed utility improvements along the Roscoe Road / Canal Boulevard corridor. Due to the number of driveways, minimal right of way, and the utility congestion along Roscoe Road and Canal Boulevard, the off-site portion of the Barbara Jean’s force main was directionally drilled. The project included approximately 1,750 feet of 6” DR 11 HDPE pipe, two road crossings, and multiple air release valves.
DEP and St. Johns County right of way permits were issued and the main was designed and installed per St. Johns County Utility Department standards. Construction was completed in September 2010.
WET Engineering has a 5-year continuing contract with the Clay County Utility Authority and has successfully completed a number of utility plant design projects. We are very satisfied with their work and the professionalism of the staff. The projects were completed on schedule and we have had minimal change orders.
WET Engineering is not only efficient & effective in their professional role, but they take the time to engage with clients with a genuine interest in how a project impacts the entire area and community. Their knowledge & attention to detail have aided the Cross City in securing funding and completing time sensitive projects.
We were looking to install ProSlide's very first RideHouse and needed an engineer who could design a drainage and supply water plan as well as a mechanical room. We heard about the problems other parks had with similar structures, and couldn't be happier about our choice to go with WET Engineering. They were there for support during the build process and the system works without a flaw.
We have been working with WET Engineering/North Beach Engineering since early 2000. In every instance they were knowledgeable and finished work in a timely manner.
