Rehab project will restore operating efficiency, extend plant's useful life and meet capacity and nutrient removal requirements.

PITTSBURGH, PA, APRIL 27, 2017 -- Utilities Inc. of Longwood, Florida has selected Evoqua Water Technologies through its sales partner, Heyward Florida Incorporated, for a project to rehabilitate three biological wastewater treatment trains at its Wekiva Hunt Club Wastewater Facility. The three trains, with a combined permit treatment capacity of 2.9 million gallons per day (MGD), will undergo equipment and structural improvements to restore operating efficiency, extend the plant's useful life and meet capacity and nutrient removal requirements.

Evoqua's DAVCO™ product line provided a thorough equipment evaluation of the facilities and recommended best options to improve performance as well as save capital and operating costs. The scope of the project included the replacement of two clarifier drive assembles, aeration diffusers, waste and return activated sludge boxes with air lift pipe assembles, catwalks and process controls. In addition, tank structural improvements will be made where needed along with field painting and commissioning. The rehabilitation of the plants will be in stages with expected completion in the fall of 2017.

"We are extremely focused on the need to maintain the level of service that our customers expect and to consistently meet our regulatory obligations. This project supports our goal of maximizing the production of reclaimed water on a continuous basis and thus minimizing the nutrient load that would otherwise impact Sweetwater Creek. The rehab project will be a boon to the Wekiva River ecosystem, classified as an Outstanding Water of the State," said Bryan Gongre, Regional Manager for Utilities Inc. "The quality of service and workmanship provided by Evoqua's DAVCO field-service team is unparalleled in the industry. We look forward to the application of Evoqua's expertise so that the Wekiva Hunt Club facility will perform better than its original design"
