Local Jobs

Thompson Pump's Port Orange branch rented rotary pumps and wellpoint equipment to a local site developer to dewater the area before construction.

 

Modern Continental South was awarded the $32-million Florida Department of Transportation contract to widen State Road 5A, commonly known as Nova Road, in Port Orange, FL. The main focus of the project is to widen the rural 2-lane road into an urban 4-lane road. The rest of the project will consist of utility work such as replacing water lines, sewer lines, and force mains along the proposed areas of construction. In some areas, the road will be widened to 6-lanes to better handle the increasing level of traffic due to rapid growth in the area.

“Basically, it’s been at over-capacity for years,” said Debra Bergeron, public information officer for Quest Communications, the firm handling the project communications, and a long-time area resident. “This whole area has grown so rapidly, there certainly is a need for these roads.”

The project is split into two sections, both on the outskirts of where Nova Road runs through Daytona Beach. The first project was started in October 2001, and will be completed by June 2004. It is located south of the Daytona Beach city limits in Port Orange. The second project was started November 2001, and will be completed by May 2004. The second project is located north of Daytona Beach in Ormond Beach.

The widening of the two sections of Nova Road will affect many local homes, businesses, small businesses and large shopping centers. The contractors have placed “Business Entrance” signs to help direct the public into those businesses safely. With a large elderly population in the area, the project team has viewed this as one of its more critical and challenging efforts. The project team has also instituted a monthly open house and meeting, so that local business owners and residents have the chance to speak with members of the project team and representatives from the Department of Transportation on a one-to-one basis about the project. The main reason for the public’s concern is the inherent slow going of much of this work. “It doesn’t look like we’re doing anything, when we’re doing all that [utility work],” Debra Bergeron said. “Of course, we’re in the way and we create dust and noise. But that is almost finished.”

The Port Orange section of the project has already seen the repair or replacement of:

· 7-miles of storm drain, ranging from 18 to 84-inches, and varying between concrete pipe, and steel-rimmed aluminum steel pipe.

· 6-miles of water main, sewer main and reclaimed water pipe, measuring between 2 and 24-inches in diameter, either as PVC or ductile iron pipe.

The work completed thus far in Ormond Beach is similar:

· 6-miles of drainage pipe, ranging from 18 to 60-inches of concrete, or steel-rimmed aluminum steel pipe.

· 8.5-miles of water main, force main or reclaimed water pipe, also ranging from 2 to 24-inches in diameter either in PVC or ductile iron pipe.

A considerable amount of rain during the stage of construction has impeded progress as well.

“That [rain] has caused a lot of delays,” said Bergeron. “With the rain [the challenge has been] not only in certain areas where the water accumulates, but also as far as maintaining the access to businesses and the homes with the driveways. That’s caused us a lot of anxiety.”

Modern Continental has used Thompson Pumps on their projects many times in the past, so it was no surprise when they asked Thompson for help on Nova Road. With heavy summer and fall rains, a lack of project workspace and a need for quick response, Modern Continental knew Thompson could provide the pumps and accessories needed to help keep construction work on schedule.

Thompson Pump supplied many different pieces of equipment, ranging from Double Diaphragm Pumps, to Rotary Wellpoint Pumps to Dry Prime Pumps with the SuperSuction Vacuum-Assisted Priming System to handle the underground wellpointing, sewer line bypassing, trench dewatering and any other dewatering needs.

“Since both sections of the project are located closely to our manufacturing facility, we were happy to be a part of the project,” said Joe Belli, Product Marketing Specialist for Thompson Pump. “We have knowledgeable people who can provide advice and troubleshooting help to address the many different pump applications smoothly and cost-effectively.”

The city of Deltona, FL had experienced an exorbitant amount of rainfall during a summer, causing the many lakes to overflow and many residential areas to flood. As much as 100-million gallons was threatening to damage many homes. The average annual rainfall for Deltona is 53 inches. In a span of three months, Deltona had experienced approximately 50 inches of rain – almost the annual average. In order to combat the flooding, the City had about 50 personnel from Public Works and Parks & Recreation in the field working around the clock.

Because of the rainfall, many of the city’s lakes and retention ponds were already filled beyond capacity and essentially had nowhere to go with the excess water. Another obstacle was in one area where the flooding was threatening a preserve for the endangered bird, the Florida Scrub Jay.

Thompson Pump aided the city by implementing their Emergency Response Team, the same team used during the September 11 disaster in New York City, and provided pumps and applications expertise to combat the flooding. The challenges posed to the Team was to attempt to divert the floodwater to areas that would not cause further flooding, and would not harm any environmentally sensitive areas, such as the Scrub Jay preserve. Large pumps could have been used to move a larger volume of water, but due to the environmental concerns they were rarely used.

As many as 25 pumps, ranging from 4-inch and 6-inch wet prime and dry prime trash pumps to hydraulic submersible and high pressure pumps, were rushed in to aid the city in moving the water. Because of the widespread flooding, the water was sent from one lake or retention pond to another until the water could be diverted to a safe area. At the same time, the flooded residential areas were equipped with pumps that moved the stagnant water into the city’s sewer system.

City officials were doing everything they could to help the situation. The city approved the construction of a new, centrally located retention facility to create a dry area to hold the water. Also, a compromise was met to use a sinkhole that was located within the Scrub Jay reserve to move some of the water from the nearby threatened residential area, and still maintain the preserve’s environment.

With two months left in the official hurricane season, the city hopes to handle the current situation before more rain comes in the form of a tropical storm or hurricane. Thompson Pump has provided the city with all of the resources necessary to accomplish this goal, and will continue to do so until the situation is under control.
