The project will essentially narrow the <br />existing road to 20 feet, creating space on the east side of the street for an eight-foot-wide <br />sidewalk and wide landscape areas, holding true to the City’s focus on increased walkability <br />throughout Casselberry. This project integrates water and sewer utility improvements that have <br />the potential to convert septic tanks to sanitary sewer, helping reduce pollutant loads to Lake <br />Kathryn. <br /> <br />The Commission also approved $1.9 million for improvements to the City’s potable water <br />distribution system along U.S. Highway 17-92 from State Road 436 to Ridge Road. The scope of <br />this project includes installation of about 4,400 feet of 12-inch water main to connect the water <br />distribution system from Lake of the Woods Boulevard to East Altamonte Drive. This project is <br />designed to improve water quality, address isolation issues caused by dead-end service points <br />and reduce the risk of service loss for customers being served by a single main source. The City <br />provides treated potable water to residents through about 200 miles of pipe that make up its <br />distribution system. <br /> <br />As part of the Lake Kathryn Circle project, which will be partially funded by grant monies from <br />the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), improvements will include <br />construction of about 3,000 linear feet of gravity sewer, installation of manholes and sanitary <br />service laterals leading to the anticipated decommissioning of more than 30 septic tanks along <br />with roadway restoration. This anticipated completion date is March 2023. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
