Orange Avenue Rehabilitation Project

Orange Avenue Rehabilitation ProjectThe Orange Avenue Rehabilitation project was completed in April 2016 after nearly 3 years.

The purpose and goal of the project addressed and corrected numerous issues including localized flooding, reduction of pollutants in stormwater runoff to Lake Umatilla, a deteriorating roadway and the need for new sanitary manholes, pipes and services.  Additionally, new water mains, sidewalks, curbs and gutters were added with roadway signage and striping.

The project received funding from multiple sources to aid in the cost of construction.   The City of Umatilla acquired the FDEP Section 319 Impaired Water Body Grant which is funded via the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through Section 319(h) of the Federal Clean Water Act.  This grant is used to implement projects or programs that will help to reduce nonpoint sources of pollution.  A State Revolving Fund Grant was also obtained for the project.  BESH provided assistance and certifications for both grants during the construction process.  Additional funding came from the Lake County Board of County Commissioner.  Lake County Schools provided in-kind services by demolishing existing roads and sidewalks, pouring new sidewalks, driveways and sodding the right-of-way.
