Concord Road from Turkey Creek Rd. to Northshore Dr. – TDOT

TDOT and the Town of Farragut are planning a road improvement project on Concord Road from Summerdale Road to Northshore Drive.  The project will result in the relocation of over one mile of 6-inch, 8-inch, 12-inch, and 20-inch water mains, as well as multiple large-diameter gravity sewer and force main sewer line relocations.  The work is scheduled to be advertised for construction in August 2017, pending scheduling of property acquisition, environmental permitting, railroad coordination, and other logistical challenges

Keller Bend “B” and Statesview Sewer Pump Stations

FUD is contracting the replacement of sewer pump stations on Keller Bend Road and the intersection of State View Drive and George Williams Road.  Contractors are expected to begin work in May 2017 with completion in Summer 2017.

Northshore Drive Bridge – 16-inch Water Line Adjustment

To provide reliable water supply going into the summer months, FUD is contracting the repair of a 16-inch water main mounted on a bridge on Northshore Drive.  The work is located approximately 0.7-miles west of the Concord Road roundabout.  Work is expected to be complete by May 2017.

 

Saddle Ridge Subdivision Water Line Replacement

Starting in April 2017, FUD will begin replacing approximately 4800-LF of water mains in the Saddle Ridge Subdivision.  Work will be conducted in phases, and the initial work will be in the vicinity of Shady Ridge Lane and Long Ridge Road.  Crews will be working in the area through summer 2017.

Water Treatment Plant Jenkins Lane – Finished Water Pumping Control Improvements

This project is to install variable frequency drive controls on four of FUD’s largest finished water pumps. The finished water pumps are utilized for distributing water to homes and businesses within the FUD Distribution System. These new variable frequency drives (700HP and 800HP) will provide the Water Treatment Plant with an increased operational flexibility and will enable water pressures and flows to be more efficiently and effectively controlled while water is being distributed. The installation of these drives will also provide a reduced power consumption as compared to the existed operational configuration.
