Capital Projects Division


The Capital Projects Division provides project management and design support services for the City's Capital Improvements Program (CIP).

It also serves the Facilities, Streets, and Stormwater Divisions and the Parks and Grounds division with "in house" project assessment, design, and coordination. The Capital Projects Division provides team support in the acquisition of funding, through grants and other programs, and provides continuous monitoring and updating of the capital improvements program process for the City.

Petroleum Storage and Distribution System Upgrades

The City of Cocoa owns and operates its own Petroleum Storage and Fueling Facility. This Facility is used to fuel the City of Cocoa Fleet of Vehicles and Equipment. This Fueling Facility consists of (4) petroleum storage tanks; (3) three (UST) or Under-ground Storage Tanks, (1) AST or Above-ground Storage Tank and a Fuel Dispensing Island canopy with (4) suction type dispensers 2 gasoline and 2 diesels. A total storage capacity of 22,000 gallons of gasoline and 12,500 gallons of diesel.

· 10,000-gallon gasoline UST tank installed in 1992

· 2,500-gallon diesel UST tank installed in 1992

· 12,000-gallon gasoline UST tank installed in 1998

· 10,000-gallon diesel AST tank installed in 2008

Due to the age of the storage tanks Cocoa Fleet Management proposed to closeout and remove all of the under-ground storage tanks, install a new 12,000 gallon above-ground gasoline tank, and upgrade the fueling island from a four fuel dispensers’ system to a two dispensers’ system with dual hoses at each dispenser. The existing 10,000-gallon AST diesel tank would remain and would feed one of the new dual hose dispensers. The new 12,000-gallon gasoline tank would feed the other duel hose dispenser. The upgrade would install a new 500-gallon non-ethanol premium tank with a built-in dispenser and install a new Veeder Root electronic tank level and spill monitoring system.

Once completed the new system will give the City of Cocoa a modern and robust fueling system that’s able to support all of the City of Cocoa fueling needs into the future, without all of the environmental concerns of under-ground storage tanks. The system is expandable and upgradable should needs arise.

Funded Originally funded in fiscal year 2021 but delayed to fiscal year 2022 due to supply chain issues from the COVID pandemic
