Action Requested

Authorization to waive the County Landfill tipping fees in the amount of approximately $18,300.00 by permitting the contractor for the Tropical Harbor Stormwater Discharge Maintenance Project to haul the sediment to the County landfill to use as daily cover which will offset purchase and use of daily cover purchased annually by Landfill Operations.



Enabling/Regulating Authority

Solid Waste Comprehensive Plan & Solid Waste Franchise Agreement



Background Discussion
  • August 24, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved a Stormwater Discharge Maintenance Program.  The program objective is to clean sediment at each of the stormwater outfall pipes discharging into any public navigational channel.
  • Currently we are awaiting a permit exemption from FDEP for this project.  We are anticipating sending the specs and plans to Purchasing in January.  It is anticipated that 300 cubic yards of sediment will be removed.  This sediment will be dewatered in order to pass the paint filter test before transporting to the landfill.
