Action Requested
Execution of Florida Gas Transmission Company's Encroachment Agreement for the Tara 20 Force Main (Parallel to Lena Road) project. 

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statute 125, Manatee County Comprehensive Plan - Goal 9.1 addresses wastewater

Background Discussion
The proposed Tara 20 Force Main (Parallel to Lena Road) project is located east of  I-75, north of State Road 70, within an existing County utility easement adjacent to a Florida Power & Light (FPL) easement.  The project consists of the installation of approximately 8,400-LF of 20" force main between SR 70 and the Southeast Water Reclamation Facility (SEWRF). Pipe installation will be by open trench and Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) methods of construction. Proposed force main will parallel an existing County force main. This force main crosses an existing Florida Gas Transmission Company (FGT) easement containing an 8" natural gas pipeline. Manatee County Project Management requests an Encroachment Agreement with the FGT  to construct the proposed force main under the existing gas pipeline.
