Bryson Street water line construction well underway in Live Oak

Live Oak — The City of Live Oak Water System Improvement Project is currently underway on Bryson Street and is anticipated to continue for the next few months, Live Oak Public Works Director Brent Whitman said.

New water lines are being installed in three different parts of the city. Residents in Live Oak’s District 1 and District 2 will soon be connected, and a small portion of District 5 will also reap the benefits of a new water line.

“The work in the southwest quadrant of the city and on Andersen Street has been predominantly completed,” Whitman said. “Bacteriological testing for clearance of these lines for service is being undertaken currently. With successful clearance of the mains, the individual services will be connected to the new mains and placed into service.”

The project consists of the following new major components, plus valves and appurtenances: 11,500 linear feet of six inch water main lines; 4,100 linear feet of eight inch water main lines, and 2,600 linear feet of eight inch reuse force-main lines, to be put in place for future use.

The project is replacing old two inch diameter lines and replacing them with new lines measuring six inches. Residents who will be connecting to the new lines will benefit from increased water pressure and quality water.

“In addition to replacing old components, the project includes ‘looping’ the water mains, which increases flow and reduces pressure losses in the system,” Whitman said.

Whitman said the project was advertised and bids received on Sept. 26, 2013. The project was awarded to Worth Construction and Development with a bid price of $693,445.10. The construction of the project began on Nov. 18, 2013.
