    RE-SHARING: Important Homeowner Notice From the City of Saint Petersburg 

    Greater Pinellas Point Lateral Line Rehabilitation Funding Available

    WE ARE RE-SENDING THIS INFORMATION ORIGINALLY EMAILED 5.15.19 

    A lateral line is the pipe that connects your home to the City’s sewer system. Lateral lines are private property and their maintenance is the responsibility of the property owner. The lateral lines in Greater Pinellas Point have been identified to be susceptible to inflow and infiltration by unwanted stormwater and groundwater, especially during heavy rain events. This additional water in the system increases the risk of sewer overflows and backups and puts a strain on the system as a whole.

    To help mitigate the issue, the City of St. Petersburg is making investments in the infrastructure of Greater Pinellas Point. The City is working on a pilot study to determine the effectiveness of private lateral line rehabilitations.

    The project will include the study and inspection of lateral lines and the City will provide funding to property owners for the rehabilitation of their private lateral lines. Property owners have the opportunity to take advantage of this temporary funding and contribute to the infrastructure improvements and environmental stewardship in St. Pete. This is a temporary offering and funding will not be available after the project is completed. Single-family homeowners in Greater Pinellas Point within the study area are invited to participate. Study area maps can be found in the attached flyer or at www.stpete.org/laterallines.

    NEXT STEPS:

    1. Sign up for a free assessment of your lateral lines at www.stpete.org/laterallines. Registration will be open through August 2019.

    2. Have your lateral lines assessed by a City-approved plumber.

    3. Take advantage of available funding from the City to help pay for the rehabilitation, based on assessment results. City funding may not cover all of the cost of the rehabilitation, so you may qualify for a low-interest loan from the Solar and Energy Loan Fund for the difference. More information at stpete.org/SELF.

    More information can be found at www.stpete.org/laterallines. Questions can be directed to the Water Resources Department at 727-893-7261.

    We have a new neighbor! Welcome, Sanchez Rehoboth Mortuary and Cremation Services, LLC to beautiful Greater Pinellas Point! The business occupies the entire building once occupied by various entities at 6501 25th Way South, just off Roy Hanna Drive.

    Sanchez Administration officials invite you to their open house on May 7, 2019, 5-7pm. The Sanchez’ have introduced a unique humanitarian giving concept called a ‘Blessing Box.’ The box (see photo) is located in front of the business, mounted on a pole similar in design to a birdhouse. With integrity and honor as a guide, anyone is welcome to help themselves to items in the Box based on their individual needs, no questions asked. If you attend their open house, please bring a boxed or canned good item to donate to the Box, or, just drop off items at anytime to the business office. Toiletries are also accepted for the Box.
