The Bayshore Gateway Triangle CRA (BGTCRA) is located on the periphery of the City of Naples water service area and has historically experienced low water flow and pressure conditions. A study prepared in 2016 reviewed the existing water system in the CRA and identified potential improvements to increase levels of fire protection. The study provided a multi-phase approach to complete the estimated a total of $5.3 million in necessary improvements to upgrade existing water lines and install new and/or upgrade fire hydrants throughout the area. The project has been divided into phases due to size and cost of the improvements. The City of Naples Utilities Department is partnering with the CRA to provide in-house design services, construction management and capital funds.
