Town of Cross City, FL

The Town of Cross City operates a 0.4 mgd wastewater treatment facility that includes two separate biological and secondary clarification treatment trains. The first train (0.15 mgd) was built in the 1960’s and uses mechanical aeration. The second train (0.25 mgd) was built in the 1980’s and uses coarse bubble diffusers. Both aeration treatment trains will be upgraded to fine bubble diffusion to reduce energy costs, increase aeration efficiency, and replace aging equipment. The upgrades include two positive displacement blowers, controls, find bubble diffusers skids, and associated air piping.

The project challenges include providing an aeration system that worked within the capacity of the existing electrical service and on-site generator, differing hydraulic and pressure conditions between the two treatment trains, and working within the Town’s very limited budget. In addition to providing design and permitting services, WET also assisted the Town in negotiating impact fees for the Department of Corrections, which will partially pay for the aeration upgrades. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2011 and should be completed by spring 2012, in time for the plant to receive additional flows from the state run correctional facility work camp.
