North Florida is rich in utility resources
If your company is in an industry that requires a significant amount of utility capacity, you will appreciate everything the North Florida Mega Industrial Park has to offer. From fresh water to electricity and more, our utility providers can deliver the inputs your business needs to achieve its goals.
North Florida Mega Industrial Park sits atop one the nation’s most productive sources of groundwater, the Floridian Aquifer, and Lake City’s well field has been designed to make efficient use of this important natural resource. The current production capacity is 3.8 million gallons per day (at 700 gallons/minute), with Lake City’s new Price Creek water plant adding 9 million gallons/day of capacity. The North Florida Mega Industrial Park is supplied by 12-inch water mains, ensuring plenty of volume for even large water users.
Businesses in the North Florida Mega Industrial Park are served by Lake City’s wastewater treatment facility, up to 12,000 gallons/day. The 2016 completion of the new Kicklighter treatment plant will increase wastewater capacity to an impressive 3.5 million gallons/day. Eight-inch sewer mains accommodate significant outputs.
Florida Power & Light, the state’s largest and most affordable electricity provider, serves the North Florida Mega Industrial Park. Distribution-level service (3 phase 13.2 kV) is available at the front of the park, with transmission-level voltage (115 kV) within 1,000 feet (and a substation within 2 miles). In addition to significant capacity, FP&L has the ability to provide redundant service to companies that locate in the park that cannot risk outages.
A six-inch natural gas line adjacent to North Florida Mega Industrial Park is capable of delivering 40,000 mcf of natural gas each month. Currently, Lake City only uses 30 percent of this capacity, so businesses that use large amounts of gas are assured of a reliable, abundant supply.
An AT&T trunk line along U.S. Highway 90 provides high-capacity, high-throughput data, voice, and other telecommunications services to North Florida Mega Industrial Park.
