We provided improvements to the Town of Lake Hamilton’s water system, reducing maintenance and improving fire protection, water system pressure, and water quality.
The Town of Lake Hamilton (Town) water system has provided water service to customers since before 1950. Large areas of the system, particularly in the central area of town, received service from the original water mains, some of which were as small as two inches in diameter.
Chastain-Skillman (CS) assisted the Town with an application to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Utilities Service for funding to provide improvements to the existing system. As a result, the Town received $3.8M in loan/grant funding. Approximately 75% of the funding is in the form of grants.
CS prepared construction plans and specifications for approximately 22,500 linear feet (LF) of new water main. Permits for the project were obtained from the Florida Department of Health, FDOT, and Polk County Roads and Drainage. The water system improvements reduce maintenance by eliminating old lines and improving fire protection, water system pressure, and water quality.
