Elsa and Paulina Roads Drainage and Watermain Improvements

This project consists of construction of a drainage system to relieve significant and routine street flooding on Elsa and Paulina Roads. These low-lying roads are located in an older area of Jupiter and are subject to flooding even in smaller rainfall events and are highly susceptible to the effects of sea level rise. Drainage improvements include installation of 18” and 24” reinforced concrete pipe, drainage structure, valley gutters along edge of pavement, a vortex structure for enhanced treatment of storm water runoff prior to discharges to the Intracoastal Waterway, and infrastructure for a future pumping station to alleviate flooding caused by future sea level rise.
