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:
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.
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.
Potable water is the lifeblood of every community. Jones Edmunds utilizes state-of-the-art computer modeling software to 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. The following water system services:
