Client: Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department (MD-WASD)
Project Description: Surveying, utility coordination, water main design, permitting, bidding and construction phase support services.
HSQ provided surveying, utility coordination, water main design, permitting, bidding and construction phase support services to Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department (MD-WASD).
MD-WASD is proposing to abandon the undersized 2” water mains and meters within the rear lots of an existing single family home community and install a new 8” D.I.P. water main along the frontage of these homes. There will also be installation of new water meters and fire hydrants within the public right-of-way areas.
During the field reconnaissance and utility verification for the project, the HSQ Design Team found that there was an existing 8” water main that had already been installed within a portion of the project limits. This existing water main had not been identified during the review of the as-built drawings that were provided by MD-WASD. After further investigation, it was confirmed that there had been an 8” water main installation in 2007 along Northwest 30th Avenue and Northwest 83rd Street under the county’s needs assessment program (No. GOB- UWMR-21 – GOB Site No.71162 – ER No. 16057). The HSQ Team also suggested to MD-WASD that the limits of the project be extended east along Northwest 84th Street in order to connect to an existing 12”D.I.P. water main that was identified outside the original limits of the project. HSQ provided the required additional surveying and engineering services to MD-WASD at no additional charge.
The approximate total length of new 8” water main installation is 4,700 linear feet.
