Background Discussion
  • Due to an increase of usage by natural gas customers, Peoples Gas Systems, A Division of Tampa Electric Company, has requested a Grant of Non-Exclusive Easement over or under a portion of Coquina Beach located at 2651 Gulf Drive South, Bradenton Beach, Florida to expand their capacity.
  • The Department of Parks and Natural Resources was consulted regarding the easement and gave permission to proceed with granting the easement.
  • The underground natural gas pipeline will be constructed using a directional drill eliminating the need for open trenching minimizing surface disturbance to the area.
  • Any disturbance to the area will be returned to its original condition and grade as existed prior to the directional drilling process or any repair performed on the pipeline.
