Withlacoochee River Water Pollution Control Plant (GA)

The old Withlacoochee River Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) experienced extensive flooding, causing damage to the facility, permit violations, and spills into the Withlacoochee River. In response to a Georgia Environmental Protection Division consent order resulting from the flooding, the City of Valdosta sought a design-builder to fast-track a new greenfield plant to meet stringent effluent limits and produce Class B biosolids.

Southwest Water Treatment Plant Ozone Replacement

The Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC), which owns and operates seven groundwater treatment facilities, uses ozone to treat the hydrogen sulfide within the water. One of those plants, the Southwest Water Treatment Plant (WTP), and the largest of the seven facilities, was the last to go through the conversion process from the oxygen-fed ozone.The OUC awarded Black & Veatch a construction management at-risk (CMAR) contract for implementing upgraded ozone equipment.

Permanent Canal Closures and Pumps (LA)

The three main outfall canals in New Orleans, located at Lake Pontchartrain, are critical elements of the area’s flood control system, serving as drainage conduits for much of the city. Running south to north near the Orleans Parish lakefront, the 17th St., Orleans Ave., and London Ave. canals include floodwalls and levees. To block storm surges at these flood-prone canals, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers elected to replace interim closure structures (ICS) built in 2006 with new separate, permanent closure structures and pump stations (designed to operate concurrently or in series with existing drainage pumping stations).

Hopewell Water Renewal’s Alternative 4A-1 Light, Phase 2 Improvements

The Hopewell Water Renewal Facility is a unique 50-MGD publicly-owned treatment facility serving 23,000 customers, with 85 percent of influent from industrially sourced wastewater — posing a distinct treatment challenge. Without cost-effective treatment, nitrogen would be discharged to the James River, a tributary to the nationally treasured Chesapeake Bay, at higher loads than the new regulatory requirements allow.

Tampa Bay Desalination Plant

Desalination is no easy task. Although the original plant produced some water, the design was deficient, causing costly filters to clog too quickly. After Tampa Bay Water shut down the plant, ACCIONA Agua and its JV partner began to develop a solution that would remediate the facility.
