Landscape Plan Updated

After receiving input from nearby residents, Garney Construction modified and improved the facility’s landscape plan.  Several changes were made to better shield some facility equipment from views, while still providing maintenance access.  Improvements and modifications include:

  • A 6-foot-high white PVC fence to be installed around the perimeter of the electrical gear with a 12-foot-wide double gate to allow TECO access to the equipment,
  • Areca palms planted on the west side of the fencing to help conceal fencing and electrical gear, and
  • Viburnum shrubs along the north side of the facility.

We thank our neighbors for helping us improve the landscape plan. To view the plan in full, click here.

Temporary Road and Lane Closures Scheduled as Project Nears Completion

April 1, 2021 -- Residents will be happy to know that work on the San Carlos Pumping Station Rehabilitation Project is nearing completion.  We know construction has been inconvenient at times, and we truly appreciate the community’s patience while we’ve worked  to improve this important wastewater facility.This map shows road closures in the Sunset Park area. From April 5-9, 2021, South Manhattan Avenue will be closed from West San Jose Street to West San Carlos Street. From April 12-16, 2021, the right-hand turn lane of Henderson Boulevard onto South Manhattan Avenue will be closed.

Over the next three weeks, crews will demobilize the bypass pumps and all associated temporary piping. The City of Tampa has approved the following closures so this equipment can be safely removed (see map on back):

  • April 5-9, 2021 — S. Manhattan Avenue will be closed from West San Jose Street to West San Carlos Street.
  • April 12-16, 2021 — Right-hand turn lane of Henderson Boulevard onto S. Manhattan Avenue will be closed.

This work requires open manholes and pipeline flushing, so residents may notice increased odors through April 16, 2021.

Crews continue to work on demobilizing, grading the site and installing landscaping. Temporary fencing around the park will remain in place until the park is restored in the first half of May. The fencing around the equipment yard will remain in place until Garney has completely demobilized in late May or early June.

We’ll continue to update this website throughout the duration of the project. For more information, call (813) 486-0361.
