Palm Valley Water Reclamation Facility Expansion

This construction project consisted of expanding the reclamation facility treatment capacity to 5.8 million gallons per day (MGD). Phase 1 was a design-bid-build and Phase 2 was a design-build alternative project delivery method. The work consisted of adding a new influent screen, grit removal unit and grit washer, two new sequencing batch reactor (SBR) basins, new blower building with new SBR blowers and electrical room, a new odor control system for the new SBRs, replacing two filter feed pumps, adding one new cloth media disc filter, replacing four effluent discharge pumps, converting the existing SBR basin #3A basin to a sludge holding tank and converting SBR basin #38 into a surge tank, two new supernatant pumps for the converted sludge holding tank, structural work, shoring, and earthwork.
