Project Title:
HMGP-4468-047- City of Ormond Beach, Lift Stations, Bypass Pumps

The area affected by this project consists of homes in the following locations:
Abby Way, Benjamin Drive, Cardinal Drive, Flamingo Drive, Florida Avenue, Grandview Avenue, London Lane, Northshore Drive, Oriole Circle, Palmetto Avenue, Ponce De Leon Drive, Robin Rd, South Atlantic Avenue, Arbor Drive North, Arbor Drive South, Capri Circle, Central Avenue, Charles Terrace, Corbin Avenue, Division Avenue, Ellsworth Avenue, Fairview Avenue, Grove Street, Highland Avenue, Lewis Street, Lincoln Avenue, Live Oak Avenue, Mound Avenue, Myra Drive, North Capri Drive, New Britain Avenue, South Beach Street, South Capri Drive, South Ridgewood Avenue, Tomoka Avenue, West Granada Boulevard, Arcaro Court, Canter Court, Clydesdale Drive, Grey Dapple Way, Peruvian Lane, Saddlers Run, Sounders Trail Circle, Stallion Way, Trail Song Drive, Bermuda Estates Drive, Caroline’s Cove, Hamilton Circle, Saint Georges Road

Proposed Work and Purpose:
Installing back-up pad mounted diesel-powered pumps to maintain sanitary sewer service at four (4) lift stations. The project will allow the city to maintain the lift stations operational during future power outages.

Project Alternatives:
The alternatives to the project that have been and will be considered are 1) the no action alternative and 2) installing back-up 30kW generators at each location. These alternatives to the proposed project are not viable because under Alternative 1) sanitary sewer overflows are not alleviated; and Alternative 2) is more expensive and does not provide the redundancy in the pumps.

Comments are solicited from the public; local, state or federal agencies; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of the proposed project. The comments should be made in writing and addressed to the Florida Division of Emergency Management, Bureau of Recovery and Mitigation, 2555 Shumard Oak Blvd., Tallahassee, FL 32399-2100.
