Altamonte Springs, FL – Utilities, Inc. of Florida (UIF) is pleased to announce plans to beautify its wastewater treatment plant in the Eagle Ridge community of Fort Myers, FL. Investments in the Eagle Ridge project include the installation of a new 9-foot privacy fence with gate, removal of invasive vegetation and replacement with native vegetation, in conformance with Lee County code, and the installation of a new irrigation system to support newly installed foliage. These investments have been in collaboration with the Eagle Ridge Property Owners Association and Lee County and will provide residents additional visual buffer from the treatment plant, more efficient plant operations, as well as a more pleasant exterior to the community.
“We are excited about the upcoming improvements to the Eagle Ride treatment facilities and look forward to continued partnership with the Eagle Ridge community and Lee County.” commented new UIF President Gary Rudkin. “The appearance of our treatment plants is important to us, because many of them are located inside our customers’ neighborhoods.
” Rudkin added.
The Eagle Ridge improvements exemplify UIF’s commitment to build, maintain, and manage the complex infrastructure necessary to provide reliable service to the residents of Florida. Coupled with the improvements to UIF’s Seminole County facilities completed in 2018 and 2019, they improve the ability to provide water and wastewater services in conformance with current and future environmental regulations as well as leverage more technologically advanced infrastructure for the benefit of UIF’s customers.
