Utility Infrastructure Improvement Project (UIIP)
** Pardon our dust while we work to build a better Bal Harbour for you **
Project Overview and Benefits
The Village is currently constructing and repairing sections of the underground utilities within the gated residential community and Collins Avenue. The work being performed will enhance the performance and longevity of the water, sanitary sewer and stormwater systems that run underground and connect to the homes. Paving operations will follow the underground work to restore roadways throughout the area. When complete, these improvements will provide our residents and guests with a safe and efficient water supply system, a sanitary sewer system that meets regulatory requirements while ensuring the system reduces groundwater infiltration and an enhanced stormwater system to more efficiently disperse stormwater after rain events, and minimize any pollutants from stormwater discharging into Biscayne Bay.
While design work for these phases began many years ago, construction started in Phases 3 and 4 in April of 2020, and in Phases 5 and 6 in 2022. We anticipate all phases of work to be completed by the end of 2024. Below is a brief synopsis of the work and schedule within each zone.
