  • Gateway Services Community Development District Lake Bank Restoration Phase 2 - A loan agreement was executed for $2.1 million for remediation of lake banks throughout the District in the Fort Myers area by installing an Anchored Reinforced Vegetation System where severe erosion is a continuous problem. Where erosion is less severe, alternative repairs such as regrading lake banks with imported fill, installing drains that direct water away from the slope, and other minor repairs will be used to prevent further erosion.

  • Sebring Inflow and Infiltration Correction and Stormwater System Installation - A loan agreement was executed for $225,000 for the Lake Jackson infrastructure upgrade phase 1 project, which includes stormwater runoff treatment and gravity inflow/infiltration repairs along a 2.7 mile corridor on Southwest Lakeview Drive on the west side of Lake Jackson from US 27 to Fairmount Lane in Sebring. Gravity sanitary sewers were installed in the roadway in the 1993-94 timeframe. Since that time the roadway has experienced settlement causing isolated depressed areas as well as areas where the ride-ability is diminished. The capacity of the stormwater culverts crossing the roadway are questionable and there is no apparent stormwater treatment on the roadway. The project requires significant study and modeling to determine the most cost-effective and technically feasible improvements necessary to address infrastructure issues.
