Water Main Improvement Project

Water Main Improvement Project Update

The City’s Department of Environmental and Engineering Services has contracted with Marcdan Inc. to complete improvements to the City’s smallest diameter water mains.

Marcdan’s crews are currently working to replace 2” galvanized steel water main lines with 6” ductile iron pipes in Margate. This citywide project will enhance water delivery, increase water pressure, and improve water quality for many of our residents and businesses. Currently, crews are working in the public right-of-way along Northwest 62nd Avenue and 14th Court. Please drive slowly and adhere to instructions from the traffic management team when driving in the area.

We will update you as the project progresses and the work moves to other areas of the City.
