Background Discussion
  • Due to an increase of usage by natural gas customers, Peoples Gas System, A Division of Tampa Electric Company, has requested a Non-Exclusive Utility Easement Agreement under a portion of Coquina Beach located at 2651 Gulf Drive South, Bradenton Beach, Florida.
  • The Department of Parks and Natural Resources and Public Works were consulted regarding the proposed easement and permission was granted to proceed by both departments.
  • The underground natural gas pipeline will be constructed using a method known as directional drilling, which will eliminate the need for open trenching and minimizes 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 or any repairs after initial construction.
