ST. PETE BEACH – City commissioners took a giant step toward fixing St. Pete Beach’s crippled sewage system Dec. 19 by approving $528,000 for the installation of new pumps at Master Pump Station No. 1.

The work will be done by TLC Diversified of Palmetto, which has done work for the city previously on Lift Station No. 4 in Pass-A-Grille.

In mid-November, commissioners approved $337,757 for the four pumps from Xylem Water Solutions USA of Apopka, bringing the total project cost to $865,757, which is $218,700 under the estimated $1.08 million for the job.

The city has $446,010 currently budgeted for pump replacement at Pump Station No. 1 and will use $419,747 from the Wastewater Reserve Fund to pay for the balance.

Public Services Director Steve Hallock said the pumps would be delivered in March and work would start as soon as they are on site. According to terms of its contract with the city, TLC Diversified has until Sept. 1 to complete the project.

A bid for new pumps and installation at Pump Station No. 2 is under review and will be considered at the Jan. 14 meeting. Hallock estimated the price tag at about $1.5 million.

The city has been operating its sewage transfer system with a portable by-pass system since late October when the pumps at Pump Station No. 1 and Pump Station No. 2 failed.
