Pipe contractor, Southern Underground Industries, Inc., is currently replacing approximately 4,800 linear feet of cast iron pipe with new 16-inch diameter ductile iron pipe in the Victoria Park neighborhood. The new pipe runs along North Victoria Terrace and NE 5 Street, extending from 625 NE19 Avenue and ending at 1011 NE 5 Street. The project began on January 6, 2020 and is expected to be completed by February 25. The estimated project cost is $2.4 million.

The City Commission unanimously approved $65 million to fund the immediate design and construction of approximately 47,860 feet of 48-inch pipe that will serve as a redundant wastewater transmission line extending from the Coral Ridge Country Club Wastewater Lift Station to the G.T. Lohmeyer Wastewater Treatment Plant. The project will utilize two contractors, Murphy Pipeline Contractors, and David Mancini and Sons, and is expected to be completed in 18 months. Once the project is completed, a second project is planned to rehabilitate the existing 54-inch sewer main, which will result in the City having two wastewater transmission lines for full redundancy and reliability.
