The goal of this project was to expand Okeechobee Utility Authority's (OUA) Surface Water Treatment Plant while meeting the challenges of limited space, raw water quality, available capital, and new EPA regulations. The preliminary engineering, consisting of site visits, pilot studies, and research, resulted in an innovative design for surface water treatment. This design combines several processes to compensate for the limited amount of space and remove contaminates associated with surface water. These processes include: rotary screening, Actiflo clarification, chemical addition, peroxone disinfection, and filtration. This combination of Actiflo clarification and peroxone disinfection is a first in the treatment of surface water in Florida.
