FDEP Rainbow Springs State Park Improvements

Jones Edmunds designed and provided construction-phase services for improvements at Rainbow Springs State Park for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). We also helped obtain an environmental resource permit through the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Project elements included:
  • Boardwalks
  • A gazebo
  • A man-made waterfall restoration
  • Steps leading into the spring head
The river boardwalk and the overlook which views the Rainbow Spring head provided for pedestrian foot traffic through an environmentally-sensitive area with a 20-ft overview of the spring. In addition, we constructed wooden steps to provide easier access to the area.

St. Johns County Masters Tract Regional Stormwater Treatment Facility

St. Johns County implemented this project to reduce nutrient loads to the Lower St. Johns River (LSJR) to meet the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) compliance goals of the LSJR Basin Management Action Plan. Jones Edmunds prepared a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER). We also helped with the design, permitting, and construction-phase services for the Masters Tract Regional Stormwater Treatment Facility. Masters Tract is a 272-acre parcel owned by St. Johns County adjacent to Deep Creek, a tributary of the LSJR. Agricultural uses negatively impact stormwater runoff from upstream areas, resulting in high nutrient loads to Deep Creek. As a result, the design focused on optimizing nitrogen removal through multiple treatment methodologies. These include wet pond construction, stormwater harvesting, infiltration canals, and constructed wetland communities. Jones Edmunds completed extensive wetland field investigations to delineate all on-site wetlands, identify wetland mitigation areas, and determine wetland creation design elevations using Deep Creek floodplain wetlands. We also provided a Phase I Environmental Assessment and soil nutrient for the County. The project included routing incoming creek flows to a stormwater pump station that discharges to a regional stormwater basin for initial treatment and nutrient removal. We then route the water to agricultural irrigation, two large emergent marsh flow-ways, or a series of three 13+-acre treatment wetland cells for further water-quality polishing. Furthermore, we use excess stormwater for irrigation of a nearby farm that currently uses groundwater. In addition, the project provides 21 wetland mitigation credits generated by the constructed wetlands to offset the future County Capital Improvement Program wetland impacts. These mitigation credits result in a value of approximately $2.1M. Jones Edmunds assisted the County in securing $2.9 million in grant funding and is providing grant administration and construction services.

City of Bradenton Eastside Wastewater Transmission System Improvements

Jones Edmunds provided preliminary design, field data collection, final design, permitting, bidding, and construction administration services for the design of large-diameter wastewater transmission force mains and improvements to two lift stations serving the east side of the City of Bradenton and their associated force mains and gravity interceptors. These improvements were intended to replace aging facilities, provide flow relief to existing facilities, and provide increased wastewater transmission for the east side of the City. These improvements also included design and construction of expansions to two main lift stations in the system. Jones Edmunds coordinated the extensive permitting efforts required for the project that included:
  • USACE ERP and Sovereign Submerged Land Easement
  • CSX Pipeline Crossing Permit
  • FDEP Construction of Domestic WW Collection/Transmission System
  • FDOT Utility Location Permits

Kennedy Space Center Central Campus Design NASA

The new seven-story, 200,000-SF Headquarters is a gateway building and Central Campus hub for NASA’s employees at the Kennedy Space Center. This project was led by HuntonBrady as the prime consultant to NASA, with Jones Edmunds as subconsultant throughout all design and construction phases. Jones Edmunds provided site stormwater management system design and permitting, including modifications to the KSC Region 1 Stormwater Permit, utility infrastructure design including water, sanitary sewer, and stormwater utilities and paving and grading of new roadway connections and parking facilities. We provided NASA with follow-on construction administration services for Phase 1 of the new Headquarters building, Kennedy Data Center facility, and associated off-site infrastructure improvements. Jones Edmunds is also providing design services for Phase 2 of the project and has designed a new signalized intersection currently in construction at the main entrance to the Headquarters building off of NASA Parkway.

This project is part of a planned campus theme designed to replace the current Headquarters building and several other support buildings within the Industrial Area. The campus theme was developed during a Master Planning effort in 2010 led by Jones Edmunds with HuntonBrady as the Chief Architect and Planner supporting NASA. The Master Planning effort developed multiple new campus scenarios, each involving transportation, infrastructure, and facilities planning elements, ultimately arriving at the selection of the concept used in the current design and construction phases.

NASA Space Commerce Way

This project consisted of designing approximately 2.5 miles of four-lane roadway with associated signalization and stormwater management. Space Commerce Way is west of Kennedy Parkway and connects Kennedy Parkway south of Ransom Road to NASA Parkway just west of the Visitor Center. The roadway provides access for non-badged persons traveling from North Merritt Island to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center as well as to Titusville. Jones Edmunds also designed, permitted, and provided construction services for a freshwater marsh created from an abandoned citrus grove that provided low wildlife and ecological value. Design of the freshwater marsh included elevations for three wetland communities, slope design, a vegetation planting plan, a remedial plan, and a monitoring plan. Several design elements were added to increase wildlife habitat, including deep and shallow zones, upland islands, hydrologic connections to adjacent water bodies, and snags for bird roosting. The wetland has undergone 3 years of post-construction monitoring. These monitoring events have demonstrated that wildlife use is high as evidenced by continual observations of fish, alligators, turtles, and various wading birds. Jones Edmunds also provided technical services during the construction of Space Commerce Way. The work included associated wetland mitigation construction and bidding services. Mitigation design included supervising, implementing, and monitoring a 2-acre created freshwater marsh and creation of a 56-acre saltwater marsh at the Kennedy Space Center to compensate for wetland impacts associated with the construction of the roadway. A critical design element was to develop a created wetland area that would not become dominated by Brazilian pepper. Jones Edmunds developed design criteria for the mitigation site by documenting vegetation, soils, and hydrology in an adjacent wetland, as well as wetlands dominated by Brazilian pepper. In addition, we helped NASA restore a 56-acre saltwater marsh that had been degraded from a mosquito impoundment.

Putnam County Regional Wastewater System Services During Construction

Putnam County hired Jones Edmunds to complete all planning, design, and permitting for the new wastewater system in East Putnam County. Design and construction included a new wastewater treatment plant, six new lift stations, and all associated force main installations and grinder pump installs. The East Putnam County Regional Wastewater System included 32 commercial connections and 234 residential connections as well as the Putnam Correctional Institution (PCI), which gets PCI out of the utilities business and allows greater focus on its primary mission, and the County-owned Public Works Facility. The new facilities include more than 6 miles of piping, a .300-MGD ring steel treatment facility, and rapid infiltration basins (RIBs) with a disposal capacity of .240 MGD. The total project cost was approximately $14 million. All connections to the new wastewater system removed a septic system or package plant all of which were within 1 mile of the St. Johns River, helping to lower the pollutant load from septic system’s effluent that has been impacting the River.
