The City of Bradenton needed to expand and improve its existing plant and provide reliable treatment capacity for continued residential and commercial development within the plant’s service area. Jones Edmunds provided design and construction-phase services to expand the plant to provide capacity for a build-out service population of 67,840 or approximately 9.0-MGD 3-month average daily flow (TMADF).
Expanding and improving the WWTP included the following:
The reclaimed water reuse system project included developing a reclaimed water reuse system master plan and updating a reuse feasibility study, evaluating and presenting the expansion program, preliminary engineering of expansion facilities, supporting the facility permit application, and providing the basis of a proposal for South West Florida Water Management District funding. Jones Edmunds prepared a plan to expand a reuse system that we had designed for the City. This proposed expansion involved constructing pumping facilities at the ground storage tank and a transmission line to the south and east to serve large agricultural areas (tomatoes, citrus, and nurseries). Jones Edmunds has also prepared SWFWMD grant applications for the project and helped the City negotiate the option agreement with El Paso Corporation for the Corporation’s proposed use of reclaimed water for cooling water.
