Water Treatment Plant Emergency Stormwater Pump Station Electrical Improvements (W1913)


Project Status: In Design
Project Value: $

Description: The water treatment plant's emergency stormwater pump station is a 12,000 gallon structure equipped with three 2,000 gallon per minute (gpm) submersible pumps. Currently these pumps operate on electrical switch gear which does not allow for speed control. As a result, the pumps cycle on and off frequently causing excessive wear and tear on the pumps and switchgear. This project will replace existing switchgear with variable frequency drives (VFDs) to enable pump speeds to be managed and the station to be operated efficiently.

Nitrogen Trichloride Gas Elimination System (W1912)


Project Status: In Design
Project Value: $180,000

Description: Construction of a forced draft ventilation system consisting of air ducting and blowers between the nanofiltration (NF) clearwell, blend box, supplemental blend box and existing NF degasifiers and between the reverse osmosis (RO) clearwell, stilling chamber and existing RO degasifiers to convey nitrogen trichloride gas to the existing air scrubbers for treatment. Nitrogen trichloride gas is formed when chlorine, used for primary disinfection, combines with ammonia that exists in the NF and ion exchange (IX) product waters. The ammonia is naturally occurring in the surficial aquifer raw water that supplies the NF and IX plants, and is not easily or economically able to be removed by treatment processes. Nitrogen trichloride gas is released from solution with turbulence during the mixing that occurs in these structures and results in an extremely pungent gaseous odor difficult to conduct work in, and accelerated corrosion and failure of metallic components, including stainless steel, in the area.

Juno Street Pump Station/Seminole Ave. Drainage Basin Improvements (S1606)


Project Status: In Design
Project Value: $3,670,465

Description: The Seminole Avenue Stormwater (SW) Basin existing in an older section of the Town, is currently served by the Seminole Avenue SW pump station and detention area, located on the north side of Center Street, which discharges to the Loxahatchee River. Limitations in the capacity of the conveyance system across Center Street to the pump station often times results in significant flooding in the area. In addition, modeling of the watershed indicates that minimal water quality treatment is provided in the system and therefore limits the permittable discharge rate to the River. Chronic flooding problems north and south of Center Street, and on Center Street will be alleviated by construction of an additional pump station, south of Center Street in the Old Dixie Highway right of way south of Juno Street, with an outfall to the FEC Canal. The Juno Street SW pump station will provide water quality benefits by reducing the loading and increasing retention time in the existing treatment pond at Seminole P.S. and provide added water quality treatment through the new hydrodynamic separators installed at the Juno Street pump station.
