James City County Recreation Center Renovations Sewer Force Main Repair

Mar. 4, 2014

Scope of Work

There was a pool of funds that were allocated in FY13 to perform several renovation items for the Recreation Center. This report covers renovations to improve the center’s sewerage disposal system. This work consisted of the replacing the sewer force main serving the center to increase the reliability of sewage discharge from the facility. The force main’s discharge point was changed from the main Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) force main adjacent to the facility to a James City Service Authority (JCSA) gravity sewer. The length of the new force main is 1250 feet. This change will enhance the use of the Recreation Center as an emergency shelter during severe weather when sewage disposal has not been reliable. 

Status of Project

A site plan was approved and the five necessary easements were obtained and recorded.  The work has been completed and the new force main is now serving the center.


Date of Completion:  Sept. 12, 2013
Note: Construction activities were completed on time.
