Storey Park-Innovation Place Utility Project

Orange County has been progressively implementing a program to expand the capacity of its potable water and water reclamation infrastructure systems. As part of these efforts, the county has been constructing several transmission mains to increase hydraulic system capacity, provide operational flexibility, and provide system reliability for water, wastewater, and reclaimed water customers in southeast Orange County by providing the means to interconnect adjacent service areas.

This project is part of the county’s system strategy, which includes the East Service Area Potable Water and Reclaimed Water Storage and Repump Facility project, the Lee Vista Boulevard to Innovation Way transmission main project, and the South Service Area/East Service Area Potable water and reclaimed water main projects. Specifically, the Storey Park project includes the installation of potable water and reclaimed water mains to address projected future potable and reclaimed water consumptive and fire protection needs, as well as to provide a means to move potable water from the Eastern Regional Water Supply Facility to the East Service Area Storage and Repump Facility. This project also provided a way to move wastewater generated by future development and an existing development located south of Wewahootee Road to the County’s Eastern Water Reclamation Facility (WRF).

To meet future demands, 9,537 feet of 36-inch water main, 4,027 feet of 30-inch water main (includes 200 feet within a railroad crossing), 5,460 feet of 20-inch water main, 955 feet of 30-inch force main, 10,929 feet of 20-inch force main, 9,749 feet of 20-inch reclaimed water main (includes 200 feet within a railroad crossing), and 2,032 feet of 12-inch reclaimed water main were installed via jack-and-bore.
