The pipe, eight miles in the initial phase, is in the ground and patching of roadways should be completed this week with preparation for grassing next week.

The city is examining – right now materials for a section of Marvin Avenue to be replaced by Public Works staff is being bid – ways to reduce the cost of subsequent phases of the project by performing the work in-house.

The Marvin Avenue section is a test project to examine whether the city could perform major portions of phase two work in-house to save significant money in contracting costs.

Meanwhile, Public Works director John Grantland said the year’s first round of uni-directional flushing was moving to St. Joe Beach and onto Overstreet, which would complete the cycle.

City staff will move back into the city proper to begin the next round later this year.

An eight-month water study aimed at pinpointing the cause of water discoloration plaguing the city the past few years is nearing the first major milestone, Smallwood said, the creation of a gap analysis identifying areas for collecting samples.
