CITY WATER RECLAMATION IMPROVEMENTS  

On July 2, 1990, the Florida Legislature enacted Chapter 90-262 establishing objectives, including a requirement that all municipal and private wastewater treatment facilities cease discharges to the Indian River Lagoon system. Hartman & Associates, Inc. (HAI) was selected by the City of Cape Canaveral to plan, permit, design and oversee the construction of the improvements to meet this state mandate.

A previous engineering study had determined that full reuse of the treated effluent within the City of Cape Canaveral was not financially feasible. This result combined with the state requirement to cease discharge to the Banana River left the City with little to no options. However, in 1994, the City was approached by the City of Cocoa Beach to pursue an inter-local agreement to transfer treated effluent to supplement the City of Cocoa Beach's reclaimed water supply. This request for 750,000 gallons per day of reclaimed water on an annual average daily basis finally made a reclaimed water system feasible for the City of Cape Canaveral.

1.80 MGD AWT WWTP

HAI proceed to permit and design a 1.8 million gallon per day advanced wastewater treatment (AWT) and reclaimed water production improvement project for the City's existing wastewater treatment plant. The treatment facilities were designed to produce reclaimed water to supply to both the cities of Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. The treatment facilities were also designed to produce advanced levels for discharge to the Banana River during wet weather or other periods when reclaimed water demands are low.

Construction of Secondary Clarifiers

In early 1995, the project was advertised and Wharton-Smith, Inc. was contracted to contracted to construct the $7,570,000 AWT and the on-site reclaimed water facility improvements. The project was completed on schedule and with the inclusion of additional $28,254 of improvements and equipment, the total on-site project was completed for $7,598,254.

Fermentation/First Anoxic Basins  

The newly constructed five-stage advanced wastewater treatment (AWT_ biological nutrient removal process at the City of Cape Canaveral's Water Reclamation Facility is a modified process of the original standard activated sludge waste treatment process. This modified process exploits several natural biological processes to remove excess quantities of nitrogen and phosphorus. These processes are accomplished by creating alternative anaerobic, anoxic and oxic conditions in the treatment basins to promote biological activity to remove higher than normal levels of nutrients. Nutrient discharges to surface waters, such as the Banana River, are considered detrimental to water quality.

Oxidation Ditch and IR Pump Station

The raw wastewater from the City of Cape Canaveral's wastewater collection and transmission system is first discharged into the new pretreatment facility consisting of both a mechanically cleaned bar screen and a grit removal unit. The screened and degritted raw waste stream flows to the five-stage advanced activated sludge treatment process for biochemical oxygen demand and nutrient reduction. The activated sludge is settled in the clarifiers to separate the solids from the treated liquid, then filtered for additional solids removal. The filtered effluent is chlorinated for disinfection purposes, then transferred to ground storage. The reclaimed water is then pumped through the reuse transmission lines to either the City of Cape Canaveral's or the City of Cocoa Beach's distribution system.

Belt Filter Press

Also constructed in this project was a new sludge dewatering building, consisting of a belt filter press and truck loading facilities. The City of Cape Canaveral previously utilized open air sludge drying beds. The drying beds were inefficient, labor intensive and the main cause of many odors from the plant site. The new facilities will be eliminate these problems.

1.0 MG Reuse Storage Tank and Pumping Station

In 1996, the City contracted RKT Contractors to construct the first phase of the Citywide reclaimed water system. This project also included the transmission main interconnect with the City of Cocoa Beach. The $1,152,000 project was constructed and completed concurrently with the WWTP improvements.

16-inch DIP Reclaimed Water Transmission Main

The reclaimed water produced at the City of Cape Canaveral's new water reclamation facility will be utilized to replace potable water that is currently used for non-potable purposes, such as irrigation.
