Riverside Dr., Cocoa, intermittent lane closures

Lift Station 1, located at the south end of Riverside Dr. near the Cocoa/Rockledge city line, will be replaced. Mobilization expected to start October 1, 2022. Intermittent lane closures of Riverside Drive will occur during construction work hours.


Lift Station 1 is located at the south end of Riverside Drive near the Cocoa/Rockledge city line, just feet from the Indian River Lagoon. The lift station serves approximately 700 customers. During Hurricanes Matthew and Irma, influent flooded the dry well which housed electronics, pumps and associated equipment required for normal operations. This lift station does not have a generator and during relief efforts a portable generator has to be parked on the street to provide power. This project includes demolition and replacement of the station with a submersible pumping system incorporated in the wet well which will eliminate the need for confined space entry and improve worker safety as the pumps will be accessible via slide rail system. The scope also includes the addition of an emergency generator.

This project will increase reliability of the sewer system and protect the environment for decades to come.

1. Mobilization anticipated to start on October 1, 2022
