Evoqua to expand wastewater treatment plant in Florida, US

Evoqua has been chosen by the Regional Utilities of Walton County, through its sales partner AAG Electric Motors and Pumps, to expand the biological wastewater treatment plant located in the south Walton County resort community of Seacrest.

As part of the project, an existing OMNIFLO SBR system will be expanded from 2MGD to 4MGD, thereby enabling the plant to meet future effluent limits for suspended solids, nitrogen, and phosphorus.

The consulting engineering company Dewberry Preble-Rish is set to provide the process design, flow analysis, as well as permitting.

In addition, the Seacrest project will feature two rotating drum screens, a grit removal system, and an influent bypass system.

A chlorine contact basin will also be reconfigured to include a high-level disinfection system and a tertiary disc filtration system would be replaced.

The Davco field service team from Evoqua will work in collaboration with a concrete tank supplier to deliver the field-erected SBR treatment tanks.

The team will also be responsible for the equipment installation, and provide field service and commissioning for the expansion of the Seacrest wastewater treatment plant, which is expected to become operational early next year.

The Regional Utilities service area in south Walton County has three interconnected wastewater treatment facilities that facilitate the diversion of flow from one plant to the other at the time of maintenance shutdowns, utility power outages, or peak-flow periods.
