Pumping Station 4048 Project Informational Meeting – Thursday, August 3, 2017

The details below outline the project referred to as PS4048, which is located in the area between the corner of Norwich Street and Fifth Street to the corner of Townsend Street and Stonewall Street. This wastewater force main basin serves over 3,000 customers. This force main improvement project is required in order to continue serving the existing customer base and also prepare the way for future growth.

During construction, 3,100 linear feet of 24-inch force main will be installed to increase the efficiency of existing piping that carries wastewater from the north end of our present mainland Brunswick sewer system. This system runs from as far northeast as Chanslor Road to Odyssey Lake Apartments on Highway 99, down Golden Isles Parkway, across to Shell Point Subdivision on Harry Driggers Blvd, down Darien Highway, following over to the project area off of Townsend Street, bringing the wastewater through 23 pumping stations before reaching its final destination at the Academy Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility on Newcastle Street.

The construction equipment and supplies will be staged at Paulk Park off of Wylly Ave on August 1, 2017 and will be completed by December. During this time, traffic will be rerouted due to excavation on Fifth Street east of Norwich Street towards Lee Street and up to Branham Ave. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. will be blocked at Fifth Street for a short period of time. Once construction commences, routine updates to this briefing will be posted every two weeks following a planning meeting with BGJWSC, City of Brunswick, Glynn County and contract construction personnel. Progress will be reported in advance to the next phase of construction.

The BGJWSC will be hosting an informational meeting in the Brunswick High Auditorium on Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 5:30-7:00PM. During this time, members of BGJWSC staff, elected officials and staff from the construction team at TB Landmark Construction will be present to answer your questions related to this project.

Any questions regarding this meeting or the project can be directed to the JWSC project manager, Senior Engineer Todd Kline at 912-261-7122 or tkline@bgjwsc.org.
