BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – A joint project with the City of Cocoa to add additional water transmission lines across the Pineda Causeway has been completed.
A new 16-inch water transmission main from U.S. 1 to South Patrick Drive that will serve as a third feed for drinking water to City of Melbourne beachside customers in Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic, and Melbourne Beach is now in service.
It will improve pressure and flow to beachside customers and will provide redundancy if one of the other two pipelines to the beaches needs to be placed out of service for maintenance or repairs.
This project also included a parallel 16-inch water main to serve City of Cocoa water customers on the barrier island offering a third crossing for south Merritt Island and beachside communities.
The joint project, which was approved in 2018, offers increased resiliency to both systems and allows the utilities to share expenses and resources, saving utility customers.
