Destin Water Users will be installing a new 6” water line along the southern right-of-way of John Avenue from Crystal Beach Drive to Tarpon Street to replace an older 2” line. The work is scheduled to commence the week of November 8th and it is anticipated to take four weeks to complete this project. The work is being performed to upgrade the size of the existing water line which will improve water pressure and fire protection for this area.
During construction, traffic will be restricted while driving east and west along John Avenue. Additionally, there will be days when the southern intersection of John Avenue with Stingray, Barracuda, Cobia, and Tarpon streets will be closed due to excavation to cross these streets. We appreciate your cooperation as we complete these improvements to our water distribution system. Should you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact our office at 850-837-6146 and ask for our Field Operations Manager Steve Schmitt.
