Reuse Retrofit Phase 3 (Reserve at Black Lake, Harbor Crest, Lexington, and Rock Creek Subdivisions)
This project will expand the City’s existing reuse water service to four subdivisions in the Stoneybrook West community (Reserve at Black Lake, Harbor Crest, Lexington, and Rock Creek). The project also includes installing and testing backflow prevention devices on the residential water services and performing cross connection inspections within the Lakehurst, Pebble Ridge, and Fox Hunt subdivisions.

Western Storage and Pumping Facilities
The project consists of the construction of a remote storage and pumping facility located on a City of Winter Garden land parcel serving the City’s potable water and public access reuse systems. The new facilities include 2-million gallon and 1-million gallon pre-stressed reinforced concrete ground storage tanks, a high service pump station, an electrical room, and chemical storage and feed systems housed in a concrete masonry building. The project also includes 16” potable water and 20” reclaimed water transmission pipelines from the new facility to the intersection of Williams Road and Amber Sweet Lane, and a 16” metered connection with the Water Conserv II reclaimed water distribution system. A new access roadway with asphalt pavement and stormwater systems is to be installed from Williams Road, down Amber Sweet Lane and a 60’ roadway parcel onto the new facility site.

Dillard Street Reconstruction
South Dillard Street from W Colonial Drive to Plant Street will be reconstructed, replacing underground utilities and creating a more inviting streetscape designed to meet the following goals:

  • Comfortably accommodate all modes of travel (walking, bicycling, motor vehicle)
  • Better support the land uses on both sides of the street and nearby to create a better arrival experience into the City and enhance its image
  • Better connect the adjacent neighborhoods to each other and downtown
The conceptual project design includes roundabouts at Plant Street, Story Road, and Smith Street, as well as lane removals, reducing the five-lane section to three lanes. The conceptual-level analysis has found these changes to be viable with a negligible effect on roadway operations.

Stoneybrook West Parkway / Roberson Road / Windermere Road Roundabout Improvements
The City worked with Orange County and the City of Ocoee to revise this intersection from signalized to a roundabout. The project consists of relocated utilities (including water, sewer, power, and communications) as well as new stormwater collection piping and inlets.

Stormwater Capture and Reuse Project
The City, St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) have teamed up to develop a project that will capture stormwater, treat it to reclaimed water standards, and distribute it to customers. The project consists of taking stormwater from the drainage canal in Dr. Bradford Park that previously went directly to Lake Apopka and pumping it to the newly created pond adjacent to Lulu Creek. From here, the water is pumped to a treatment facility on the Wastewater Treatment Plant site, treated, and put into the reuse water system for distribution. The capture and treatment of stormwater from the two direct discharges to Lake Apopka is another step forward in improving the health of the lake.
