CGA designed a new Master Lift Station No. 8 and force main that serves approximately 50% of the wastewater generated within the Town of Davie’s wastewater service area. The existing Lift Station No. 8 included a suction lift pump configuration that was undersized for the current demand and was approaching the end of its design life. The new Lift Station No. 8 transmits approximately 2.0 million gallons per Day (MGD) of wastewater through a 24-inch diameter force main to the existing headworks facility at the Town of Davie’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). Portions of the new force main were designed using the horizontal directional drilling method for installation to reduce impacts to the surrounding residents and businesses. The project also included improvements to the headworks facility to allow for the increased capacity.
Because of the space restraints at the existing Lift Station No. 8, multiple locations were investigated for the new Lift Station No. 8. CGA coordinated meetings with the adjacent property owners and the Town of Davie’s staff to determine the best location to meet the goals of the project. Once the location was agreed upon, CGA provided the legal description and sketch for a new utility easement to allow access for future maintenance.
At the completion of the design and permitting phase of this project, CGA managed all bidding activities to select the most responsive and responsible contractor. After the selection was made, CGA provided construction services to ensure the project was constructed in substantial conformance to the contract documents.
CGA also assisted the Town of Davie with acquiring funding assistance for this project through the State of Florida Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan program.
