Town of Cross City, FL
The Town of Cross City operates an effluent sprayfield, which is used to reclaim treated wastewater from the Town’s single sewer plant. WET Engineering recently designed, permitted, and provided bidding and construction administration services on the 30 acre expansion which will accommodate the concentrate flows from the membrane upgrade at the water plant. The expansion included adding four additional irrigation zones, 164 spray heads, and approximately 16,000 ft of HDPE pipe, varying between 3“and 10”. HDPE pipe was used in this application because of its flexibility in routing irrigation lines around large diameter trees.
Project challenges included: permitting the concentrate disposal through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection; obtaining authorization to work in the existing Progress Energy of Florida easement; coordinating the relocation of several gopher tortoises; flagging and identifying existing wetlands; working on a “treed” sprayfield and minimizing the impacts to existing large diameter trees; and timing construction to sequence the project with the water plant upgrades. The expansion was funded through the Department of Community Affair’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The sprayfield expansion will be on-line in November 2011.
WET Engineering is not only efficient & effective in their professional role, but they take the time to engage with clients with a genuine interest in how a project impacts the entire area and community. Their knowledge & attention to detail have aided the Cross City in securing funding and completing time sensitive projects.
We were looking to install ProSlide's very first RideHouse and needed an engineer who could design a drainage and supply water plan as well as a mechanical room. We heard about the problems other parks had with similar structures, and couldn't be happier about our choice to go with WET Engineering. They were there for support during the build process and the system works without a flaw.
WET Engineering has a 5-year continuing contract with the Clay County Utility Authority and has successfully completed a number of utility plant design projects. We are very satisfied with their work and the professionalism of the staff. The projects were completed on schedule and we have had minimal change orders.
We have been working with WET Engineering/North Beach Engineering since early 2000. In every instance they were knowledgeable and finished work in a timely manner.
