On Tuesday, March 2, the City of St. Augustine began a months-long lift station rehabilitation and resiliency construction project on Charlotte Street. The project will include a total of 13 lift stations throughout St. Augustine.
Lift Station 23 (LS-23), located on the east side of the Plaza de la Constitución downtown, requires Charlotte Street to be closed between King St. and Cathedral Plaza, 24 hours a day, for the duration of the project, currently estimated to be five months. A second downtown lift station, LS-24, is located at the intersection of Avenida Menendez and St. Francis Street, at the seawall on the bayfront. Work on LS-24 has not been scheduled at this time.
Additional locations for the rehabilitation project are:
In addition to the 13 lift stations listed, the City is constructing a new wastewater force main that runs beneath Arricola Avenue between Arredondo Avenue and Coquina Avenue.
In total, the city’s wastewater collection system is comprised of 94 lift stations and over 60 miles of force mains. As one of the city’s Capital Improvement Projects, this will contribute overall to the improvement of the wastewater collection system, the city’s resiliency, and its ability to withstand flooding and storm surge.
