Hazen and Sawyer Wins South Florida APWA Project of the Year Award
City of Hallandale Beach Membrane Softening Facility Provides Water of Exceptional Quality to 40,000 Residents
(HOLLYWOOD, FL- February 25, 2009) – The American Public Works Association – South Florida Branch named the new City of Hallandale Beach Water Treatment Plant one if its 2009 Projects of the Year.
This state-of-the-art water treatment facility, which uses membrane softening technology, currently provides 6.0 million gallons of water per day, and is designed to accommodate future water production of up to 15 million gallons per day, as needs increase. The new facility will be used in tandem with the City’s older lime softening plant, delivering water of exceptional quality to a population of approximately 40,000.
The 10,500 square-foot main building houses two membrane skids – each capable of treating 3 million gallons of water per day – along with the associated pumps, piping and chemical rooms. Under the same roof, with a footprint of approximately 7,200 square feet on two floors, are the plant operators control room, the city engineering and public works administration offices, and an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) used for training and communications. The EOC/membrane building is designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane.
Additional facilities constructed include:
- A generator building housing a 1,500-KW auxiliary generator. This building can accommodate a second generator and electrical panels for future expansion.
- A concentrate pumping station.
- A deep injection well for disposal of the concentrate generated by the membrane system.
- A post-treatment facility providing air-stripping and chemical stabilization of the finished water.
