Reclaimed water was being utilized at a the St. Johns River Power Park (SJRPP) power plant for pump seal water in an effort to minimize the use of groundwater. The strainers for the pump seals were being clogged by biological material, thereby starving the pump seals of water and ruining the seals. In addition to the cost of the seals, manually cleaning dozens of strainers twice a day was labor intensive. SJRPP installed a chlorination and filtration system, effectively doubling the filtration and disinfection, in order to solve this problem. Upon operation of the system, several modifications were needed in order for the system to perform properly.
