The design includes detailed plans and specifications for the replacement of the existing ten inch (10”) force main with a fourteen inch (14”) sanitary sewer force main from just north side of Frisco Ranch down to the existing Kroger force main recently installed and into an existing manhole on Eldorado Parkway just before the Woodlake Parkway intersection. The existing sanitary sewer force main is undersized for future development on the Doe Creek Peninsula. In addition to the force main there are several sections of existing water and sanitary sewer gravity mains within the limits of the FM 423 TxDOT Improvements that need to be adjusted or relocated due to conflicts. Funding for this design and construction is available through the Utility CIP Bond Fund. A majority of the work will be reimbursable to the Town from TxDOT since these lines are within existing easements. The design engineer believes that reimbursable number to be approximately eighty percent (80%) from experience on dealing with reimbursement relocation projects in the past with TxDOT.
