The engineers at WET Engineering have been providing continuing engineering services to CCUA for over ten years. Part of the contract included two back to back 2.0 mgd expansions on the Spencer’s WWTF. The Spencer’s WWTF Phase IV Expansion for CCUA expanded the utility’s existing 0.5 mgd treatment plant to 2.0 mgd capacity. The design included a new headworks structure with a cylindrical fine screen, screw conveyor, and a vortex grit removal unit. In addition, a new 1.75 million gallon prestressed concrete biological treatment unit employing the Eimco Carrousel denitIR process, two 82-foot secondary clarifiers to remove total suspended solids, two traveling bridge sand filters providing high level disinfection, two chlorine contact chambers totaling 75,000 gallons, and a new effluent pump station with two 50 horsepower centrifugal pumps.
In addition to permitting, other challenges with the project included design of tie-ins of two existing force mains to the new plant, from opposing directions. A reject water control scheme was also designed, where reject water can be diverted to the newly-constructed reject storage tank and ultimately back to the new headworks. In addition to complete design services, bid assistance, preparation of contract documents and specifications, construction services and final certification services were also provided.
The Phase V Expansion, recently completed in July 2010, included the design and construction of an additional cylindrical fine screen and vortex grit removal unit, a second 2.0 million gallon prestressed concrete biological treatment unit employing the Eimco Carrousel denitIR process, one 82-foot secondary clarifier to remove TSS, one traveling bridge sand filter, an additional chlorine contact chamber, new RAS / WAS pump station, additional effluent transfer pump, one 1.1 million gallon reclaimed storage tank, and an additional reclaimed water high service pump, and diesel generator with above ground fuel storage tank.
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 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.
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 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.
