Repair is Complete for Reclaimed Water Service Outage

Repair is Complete for Reclaimed Water Service Outage
Coachman Ridge Residents May Resume Use of Reclaimed Water

CLEARWATER, Fla. – The temporary repair to the reclaimed water system that affects Coachman Ridge residents is complete, and residents may now resume use of their reclaimed water service. The main break occurred Oct. 20 at 1003 Old Coachman Road, which is located on the north side of the bridge on the west side of the road.

The first phase of the repair is complete. It involved installing a bypass line around the section of damaged pipeline. During the second phase, the city’s engineering team will design a permanent new section of reclaimed pipeline to replace the damaged line. This work will take quite some time, as it is very complex. However, the temporary bypass will continue to provide reclaimed water until the line is repaired.

The break occurred when a contractor for Pinellas County was conducting soil borings in preparation for a potential bridge modification. They accidentally drilled a hole into the city's reclaimed water main, located near a creek and 32 feet below the ground, making repairs very difficult and time consuming.

Residents who live from the bridge on Old Coachman Road to Sunset Point Road and from Glennville Drive east to Emory Drive were affected and can now use the reclaimed water again. This included the Coachman Ridge subdivision and the Long Center. Spectrum Field was not affected.
