The Raw Water Main Conversion and Water System Improvement Project was substantially complete on January 6, 2011. This approximately $1 million dollar water system improvement project began in February of 2010 to improve system water quality and pressure. The projected converted a raw water line that transmitted water to the AM Jones Water Treatment Plant into a potable water main line. This provided the City with a cost-effective transmission line to the east side of the Oviedo water service area avoiding construction of a new 36 inch water main at an estimated cost of $3 millon dollars. This project also converted the AM Jones Water Plant site into a economical water storage and repump facility. The project also redirected the high quality raw water supply wells that serviced the AM Jones Plant to the Mitchell Hammock Plant, abandoned some low quality raw water supply wells and upgraded the City's supervisory data acquisition and control system (SCADA) used to manage water delivery. The state of the art Mitchell Hammock Water Plant's drinking water is now servicing the entire City system with these improvements. This project not only cost-effectively improved drinking water quality and system pressure, but also provided redundant storage and transmission with the AM Jones site conversion.
