Altamonte Springs, FL –Utilities, Inc. of Florida (UIF) has announced that the pipelines and wastewater treatment improvements in Seminole County are expected to be completed in December.
“We are pleased to share the news of the improvements to the Wekiva treatment facilities. We remain committed to treating wastewater in an environmentally conscious way” explained UIF President Gary Rudkin. “Trust in our treatment plants and overall service is important to me and our company. Continued investments in Seminole County and across the rest of our service territory allow us to deliver on those commitments” Rudkin added.
Investments of $9.9 million include the replacement of two pressurized force mains, a water main and treatment plant head works. The force main and headworks investments, preceded by the addition of a 4’ berm, designed to contain spills on the plant site, will aid in protecting our fragile environment and assure continued safe and reliable service to our customers. These investments have been made in collaboration with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and will provide the community with additional environmental, health and safety protections.
Rudkin noted that “the Wekiva improvements are representative of UIF’s commitment to build, maintain, and manage the complex infrastructure necessary to provide reliable service to the residents of Florida.” Coupled with the more than $25 million in investments across UIF’s service territories in the last five years, the company has continued to improve its ability to provide water and wastewater services in conformance with current and future environmental regulations. Additional investments allow UIF to leverage more technologically advanced infrastructure for the benefit of UIF’s customers.
