What type of Service Connection Do I Have?
The Cudjoe Regional Wastewater system will use multiple technologies to efficiently contend with the diverse conditions of the service area. The type of sewer and service connection for each area was determined by a number of factors including density of homes, distance from main sewer lines, environmental sensitivity, etc. Based on these factors the sewer type will require either a gravity connection or a low pressure sewer connection. Please refer to the below Service Type Map to find out what type of service connection your property will require.Click here for frequently asked questions.
Funding assistance for connection costs is available for income eligible residents. Funding is limited and applications are funded on a first come first ready basis. Click here for more information.
Service Connection Types
A gravity connection requires the homeowner to extend a 4-inch PVC pipe from the house to a wastewater connection point provided by the FKAA at the property line. Click here for an illustration of a gravity service connection.
An LPS connection requires the homeowner to extend a 4-inch PVC pipe from the house to the grinder pump installed by the FKAA in the owner-selected location. In addition, the homeowner is responsible for making the electrical connection from the house electric box to the nearby pump control panel disconnect. The grinder pump, control panel, disconnect and discharge pipes connecting to the main sewer lines in the street will be installed by the FKAA.

An Easement Agreement from the homeowner is required so the FKAA can install the apparatus in the owner-selected location. The FKAA will work closely with homeowners to insure the apparatus is installed in the optimal location for the homeowner, and has prepared an LPS Grinder Pump Location Worksheet.
