OCALA, Fla. (May 31, 2017) – The City of Ocala Water Resources Department will begin work to replace a sewer force main Wednesday, June 7. Construction is expected to be completed by Friday, June 30 and will occur along NE 3rd Street, between NE 18th Avenue and NE 25th Avenue.

During this time, there may be potential odors, dust and noise around the construction area. Residents should also be advised of slow traffic patterns and potential detours in the area. In the event of a road closure or detour, all necessary devices will be in place to re-direct traffic.

“This section of sewer force mains has been in use since 1978,” said Stacey Ferrante, Central Lines Chief, City of Ocala Water Resources Department. “Due to the age of this pipeline, replacing it is an essential part of force main break prevention.”

Construction will not occur during any city-recognized holidays and will be limited to weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

For more information, please contact the City of Ocala Water Resources Department at 352-351-6772.
