Water Tank Replacement - Update

The Supports for the New Water Tank are Ready to Go but a Solid Week of 5" of Rain is Preventing the Crane from Being Mobilized for the Installation. 

The Forecast for this Week isn't Promising Either, Cranes can't be Used in the Rain, for the Obvious Reason

Water Tank Replacement - "West" Tank

The First Half of the Two-Tank Replacement Project is Nearly Complete

Our IDCC Board President, Bill Kirkland, is overseeing the entire project, starting with the delivery of the (very) large new water tank, shown below.

This is Bill Here, Checking Out the Delivery on the Big Boy  

This Semi Needed a Rear-End Extension to Fit It All In   
After Delivery is Confirmed, the Crane is Mobilized

Here, the Crane is Removing the Old Tank

And Places It On the Ground Until the New Tank is Lifted Off the Truck 

Those Tanks are Over 30 Years Old and Have About 20 Layers of Paint. X-Ray Scans Required by the St. Lucie Fire Marshal Have Shown that Internal Cracks and Corrosion are Beyond Repair. Both Tanks Have Been "Red Tagged" for Immediate Replacement.

The New Tank is Being Removed from the Truck and Placed in a Storage Area Until New Supports are Built and the Old Tank is Placed On the Truck and Hauled Away. 

Next Week We Will Begin Building the Supports.   

In Addition to Water Tank Replacement, Siding was Replaced for the Fire Pump House, as shown Here and Below

The IDCC Fire Supression Water Tank Replacement Project Has Begun

This is the first picture for the replacement of the two water tanks for the fire suppression system. 

Draining of the "West Tank" is Underway to Prepare for Removal  

On Wednesday, May 2nd we will begin to replace the first tank. A crane will be on site early in the morning and the first tank will arrive on a semi-trailer truck. The new tank will be placed on a stand in the maintenance area and the old tank will be hauled off. 

After a new concrete pad is complete the new tank will be placed on the pad and put into service. This process will take 2 to 3 weeks. Then the same process will be done to replace the second tank, "East Tank".  


There will be NO interruption of fire protection to

 the Island Dunes building sprinkler systems  at 

any time during this process. 

Please watch this blog for pictures and updates of this process.

Pickleball is Alive and Growing in Popularity at IDCC, Court Improvements are Planned!

Current IDCC Hard and Soft Court Configuration 

Several Years Ago, Pickleball Lines Were Painted on Two of the Tennis Hardcourts as Depicted Below. This was Done as Part of Routine Maintenance and To See if There Would be Any Interest by Our Owner-Members in This Growing Sport. This Remained for Some Time with Little to No Play,


Satellite View of Pickleball Courts

Under the Guidance of Our Tennis Pro, Conray deCuba, and Tom LaCroix, an Avid Pickleball Player and Tennis Committee Member, a Number of IDCC Owner Members Have Been Instructed at "Clinics" on How to Play the Game, It's Rules and Strategies for Competitive Scoring. 

Over the Last Few Months, 8 to 10+ Members Have Been Playing Pickleball Twice a Week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. 

Club Management is Encouraged by This Participation and Considers This Development to be a New Facility Which has Turned Otherwise Unused Hardcourts Into a New and Popular Sporting Activity with Participation by Growing Numbers of IDCC Members. 

Improvements to the Existing Pickleball Courts are Planned to Make These Courts More User-Friendly and Enhance Playability. These Improvements are Depicted Below and, While Not Being Permanent, are Expected to Encourage More Participation by Members, Even to the Point of League Play, Which has Become Very Active Here on the Treasure Coast in Recent Years.

Coming Soon to IDCC (click on the pic to enlarge)
