Miami-Dade Wastewater High Level Disinfection Project

This program upgraded the South District Wastewater Secondary Treatment Plant to a 285-mgd HLD facility, creating the largest wastewater facility in the State of Florida that treats to stringent reclaimed water standards.

The improvements to the largest wastewater facility in the State of Florida were driven by a landmark Consent Decree stipulating that the facility must be completed within five years and also meet FDEP HLD reuse standards, as well as primary drinking water standards.

Hazen implemented an intensive project management program to meet the aggressive project schedule and ensure that the the County's goals were achieved quickly and completely.
