FY 2019 Sewer Smoke Testing
TESTING WILL BE PERFORMED WEEKDAYS WEATHER PERMITTING
Some sewer lines and manholes are located along backyard or side yard easements. When ever these lines require investigation, members of the inspection crew may need to enter the property to access the sewer lines and manholes. Crews will be in uniform for easy recognition. Homeowners do not need to be present; workers will not enter homes or disturb properties.
Prior to testing, please pour 2 gallons of water in the seldom-used sinks or floor drains to prevent sewer gases, smoke or odors from entering the premises. If smoke does enter the home during testing, immediately leave from the building, notify the crews that are conducting the test or call Treasure Island Customer Service. If smoke enters the home, it is an indication of a plumbing defect, notify a plumber. Crews can assist in the location of any defects on private property; however, the corrections of any defects are the responsibilities of the property owner.
Smoke coming from the vent stacks on houses is normal. However, smoke coming from holes in the grounds is not normal and is considered a defect. All such defects will be photographed and logged. The City of Treasure Island will contact property owners if a defect is located on private property.FY 2018 Municipal Facilities Reconstruction
A contract with Harvard Jolly Architecture was awarded on February 7, 2017, along with approval for a work authorization for Phase IA of the project. Phase IA was to provide an evaluation of future building programming and City downtown parking needs, and the development of site evaluations/alternatives for new construction, leading to final site selection. During the public engagement process in 2018, City Commissioners and stakeholders presented additional site alternatives that led to the project being placed on hold. The project hold was announced at a commission meeting on September 18, 2018. Staff has created a project website at www.EngageTI.com and will be finalizing a report to memorialize all actions to date. Link to architect presentation
