City of St. Cloud 9-MGD MIEX Water Treatment Plant

Jones Edmunds planned, designed, permitted, and provided construction-phase services for a 9-MGD H. Clay Whaley Senior Memorial Water Plant and its associated well field. The WTP treats groundwater with magnetic ion exchange (MIEX¨) treatment technology. This method removes dissolved organic carbon in the raw water, followed by pH adjustment and deep-bubble aeration, resin-polishing filters, disinfection, fluoridation, and two 1-MG ground storage tanks before distribution. The overall system included H2S removal using a combination of ion exchange to remove bisulfide and deep-bubble aeration to remove remaining hydrogen sulfide. We used a unique magnetite media (magnetic) filter to capture resin fines from the MIEX process. The project also included design and permitting three new water supply wells (3 MGD each) and 4,000 feet of pipelines used to convey raw water from the groundwater wellfield through the treatment plant and 6,000 feet of 24-inch-diameter transmission main to supply the City’s potable water distribution system. This project also had the following benefits to the City:
  • Facility removes odor, color, and THM/HAA formation potential from Floridan Aquifer groundwater.
  • Treatment process reduced groundwater chlorine demand by 90%.
  • City’s public water supply system was brought into compliance with EPA Stage I & Stage II disinfection byproduct precursors (DBPs) rules.
  • Facility is energy-efficient by pumping only once to the facility using well pumps and gravity flow through the plant.

Putnam County East Putnam Regional Water System (EPRWS)

Jones Edmunds provided all planning, design, and permitting for a new regional water system. Eight permits were secured for this project. The water treatment plant (WTP) is a 1.0-MGD reverse osmosis treatment facility expandable to 4.0 MGD. The water supply is from groundwater wells, and the treatment process includes cartridge filtration, reverse-osmosis membrane filtration, degasification towers, and odor-control facilities. Chemicals being stored and used in the treatment process include scale inhibitor, sodium hypochlorite, sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide, and fluoride. A 250,000-gallon ground storage tank, a 6.0-MGD high-service pump station, and a 100,000-gallon elevated storage tank were constructed as part of the project. The concentrate water from the reverse osmosis WTP is reintroduced in to the St. Johns River via an underwater diffuser system.Jones Edmunds also designed and provided construction administration for approximately 27 miles of transmission and distribution piping ranging in size from 6 inches to 24 inches in diameter. The service meters range in size from _ inch to 4 inches in diameter. Approximately 820 services and 125 fire hydrants were constructed.The funding package associated with this project included a grant/loan from U.S. Department of Agriculture – Rural Development, state legislative appropriations, an Alternative Water Supply grant from St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), a Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) State Revolving Fund loan, and a US Environmental Protection Agency grant. Jones Edmunds provided comprehensive construction-phase services for this project, which included coordinating the execution of the Owner-Contractor contract and delivery to the contracting parties and the funding agencies. Jones Edmunds also worked with the Contractor during the construction phase to observe that the project was constructed in accordance with the intent of the contract documents. Jones Edmunds staff reviewed and tracked shop drawings, responded to requests for information, held weekly and monthly site meetings, observed the work, prepared daily progress reports, responded to the Contractor’s written correspondence, processed monthly pay requests, coordinated with funding agencies, negotiated change orders, and performed other duties as required to ensure a successful construction project. In addition, Jones Edmunds assessed petroleum contamination discovered during excavation of a stormwater pond at the Putnam County Public Works Facility. We determined that the contamination was the result of improper handling of materials and wastes at an asphalt plant formerly located at the site. Contaminants at the site were a commingled plume of diesel fuel and asphalt. Jones Edmunds staff used a variety of techniques, including direct-push sampling methods, to rapidly characterize the extent of the contamination. We then planned dewatering, treatment of the extracted water, and excavation of the contaminated source materials). We provided construction-observation services during the excavation of more than 6,000 cubic yards of soil that were disposed of in the County landfill. Negotiations with SJRWMD and FDEP were required to modify the Environmental Resource Permit and Consumptive Use Permit for the facility under construction. We coordinated closely with the agencies throughout the assessment and remediation process to minimize disruption to the construction schedule.

City of Zephyrhills US 301 Interconnect and Booster Pump Station

Due to increasing growth, the City expects that its raw water production will reach capacity in the near future. As a result, the City entered into an agreement with the City of Dade City to purchase water to meet the City’s future potable water needs. This water will be delivered to the City through a water main and booster pump station installed on the west side of US 301 from Phelps Road to US 98. The elements of this project include the following:

  • Install approximately 16,000 linear feet of 12-inch PVC water main within FDOT right-of-way along the west side of US 301
  • Install approximately 1,300 feet of 12-inch PVC water main within the CITY right-of-way along Kossik Road.
  • Install horizontal directional drills at appropriate road and driveway crossings using high-density polyethylene pipe.
  • Install a factory-assembled package pump station that will include adjustable-speed pumping units installed on an exterior aluminum skid; pump suction and discharge steel piping complete with isolation, check, and air release valves; and a prefabricated electrical and controls building complete with controls, telemetry, power, lighting, and HVAC systems.

Jones Edmunds provided Construction Administration Services during the entire project which entailed coordination between both Municipalities and the FDOT, Review of Submittals, Part-time Resident Observation, Witnessing of Tests, Conducting Meetings, Administering Contract Change Orders, Training of City Operating Personnel, production of Final Record Drawings and Certification to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

Pinellas County Keller Water Treatment Facility

For the last 60 years, the Keller Water Treatment plant has served Pinellas County. It was beginning to show its age, and the fear was a hurricane, or blackout or brownout could shut it down, which would deprive 900,000 Floridians of potable water. Jones Edmunds was selected to help with the transition to a newer system. Jones Edmunds provided planning, design, permitting, and construction phase services to construct a new high-service/transfer pumping station capable of distributing 55 million gallons of water a day and upgrade the chemical feed facility. The project included adding a new hydraulic surge-control station and emergency water supply bypass station, as well as a new control building rated for a Category V hurricane. The project also assisted in the County’s overall plan to mitigate the annual flushing water required to maintain water quality. Electrical capital costs were reduced with medium voltage pumps, switchgear, and an emergency generator. Overall, the project saved the county $1 million.

Water

Potable water is the lifeblood of every community. We design water supply, treatment, pumping, and distribution systems with capacities of up to 100 million gallons per day (MGD). We excel at designing water distribution systems that alleviate large flow and pressure shifts. We use state-of-the-art computer modeling software during design phases to evaluate system performance. We offer the following water system services:

  • Master Planning
  • Water Supply, Treatment, and Distribution
  • Source Water Characterization
  • Water Transmission, Storage, and Pumping
  • Hydraulic Modeling
  • Water Quality
  • Pressure Pipeline Design and Piping Selection
