San Jose Park Temporarily Closed for Restoration Though May 17

May 5, 2021 — San Jose Park will be closed for restoration through May 17, 2021.

The eastern half of the park has been used for offices and staging equipment while the San Carlos Pumping Station has been rehabilitated. Now that the rehabilitation project is nearing completion, equipment will be removed, and the park will be restored to equal or better condition than before the project began. The project team is working closely with the City of Tampa Parks Department to ensure this important community amenity is returned to residents in excellent condition.

Thank you for your continued patience as we improve the San Carlos Pumping Station. If you have questions or need additional information, please call (813) 486-0361.

NEW DATES: Lane Closures for Removal of Bypass Pumps; May Increase Odor

Road closures for April and May 2021 near San Carlos Pump StationApril 20, 2021 — As the San Carlos Pumping Station Rehabilitation Project nears completion, bypass pumps and pipes will be removed. Open manholes and flushing are associated with this work, so residents may notice increased odors now through the beginning of May.

South Manhattan Avenue will be closed beginning at 6:30 a.m. April 26 through April 30 between West San Carlos and West San Jose streets to allow workers to stage and load the trucks with the bypass pumps and pipes once they are removed. The right-hand turn lane of Henderson Boulevard onto South Manhattan Boulevard will be closed beginning at 6:30 a.m. May 3 through May 7.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience as we improve the San Carlos Pumping Station. If you have questions or need additional information, please call (813) 486-0361.

 

San Carlos Project Team Addresses Resident Concerns

April 15, 2021 — The San Carlos Pumping Station rehabilitation project is nearing the end, and the project team greatly appreciates residents’ input and patience through this vital project. The team has communicated recently with a few residents to learn of their concerns regarding odor control, safety and road repair. The following items are being addressed before the project closes:

  • The manhole on north side on West San Carlos Street has been repaired and re-sealed with stainless steel cap and has been backfilled.
  • The new permanent odor control system will be installed on the south corner of the pump station. This odor control system has been designed and is currently with the City of Tampa’s permit department for approval. We expect the system to be up and running in July 2021. The temporary odor control system will remain in service until the permanent unit has been commissioned. Before the project closes, we will perform a final smoke test at the end of May 2021 to ensure the station is sealed. Map of areas to be paved at the end of the San Carlos Pump Station project
  • The Manhattan Avenue/West San Carlos Street intersection will be repaved and restriped. Additionally, West San Carlos Street from Manhattan Avenue to South Hesperides Street, South Manhattan Avenue from West San Carlos Street to West San Jose Street, and the entire intersection of Manhattan Avenue/Henderson Avenue/West San Jose Street will be repaved.
  • Garney and the City of Tampa will check all storm drains and catch basins. If they are full of debris, they will be cleaned out prior to the project close. However, the filter screens must remain in place until landscaping has been completed and grass is growing.

Thank you for your continued patience as we improve the San Carlos Pumping Station. If you have questions or need additional information, please call (813) 486-0361.

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.
