BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The City of Palm Bay Utilities Department has begun construction on an expansion project at the South Regional utility Campus, located 250 Osmosis Drive SE.
The expansion is part of PBUD’s multi-year plan to support existing, current and future development in Palm Bay.
The project will expand the water and wastewater treatment capacity of the Utilities Department, provide reliability and redundancy to current infrastructure, and enhance water quality within the community.
A new raw water supply well will be constructed at the South Regional Water Treatment Plant and the plant’s existing reverse osmosis treatment capacity will be expanded from 4-million gallons per day (MGD) to 6 MGD.
The new South Regional Water Reclamation facility will also be constructed at the site to provide the city with an additional 1 MGD wastewater treatment capacity.
Beginning February 1, PBUD will suspend all in-person customer service functions at the South Regional Utilities Administration Building, including the drive-thru payment window and payment drop box, in preparation for the construction activities.
Osmosis Drive SE will be temporarily closed beginning February 1, 2021; the roadway will be restricted to local traffic only.
Construction activities will generally occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Access for all construction traffic will occur at the intersection of Cogan Drive SE and Osmosis Drive SE.
Construction will take place off Osmosis Drive SE and is anticipated to be completed by November 2022, pending weather and field conditions. Typical construction-related disturbances such as noise, dirt, and vibrations should be expected throughout the construction period.
