Grant Agreement with the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection for Nutrient Treatment Enhancements at the Conserv II WRF


Construction of the Conserv II WRF Phase I Treatment Improvements Project was recently completed. During design of the improvements, some elements of the design, including the addition of mixing systems, were postponed due to lack of funds. When removing the mixers from the original design, the concept was to use low levels of air to mix the basins. However, staff has determined that even the low levels of air are having a detrimental impact on nitrogen removal capacities. Therefore, the ability to mix these basins without the use of air is critical to establishing the capacity of the Conserv II facility.  

 The City applied for funding from the State for the addition of mixing systems to the anoxic zones at the facility. This project will benefit the quality of reclaimed water (alternative water supply) that is produced by the WRF, a portion of which is applied in the Wekiva Springs Study Area. Funds were provided in the FY2014-2015 General Appropriations Act (GAA) listing this project. The Department has appropriated an amount not to exceed $400,000 toward the total estimated project cost.

Fiscal & Efficiency Data: The FY2014-15 GAA did not require a match for this project; however, additional funding needed to complete the project will be provided under Project CIP0063-P. 

Recommended Action:
Approve State Financial Assistance Agreement LP 48045 and request authorization for the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the document, subject to review and approval by the City Attorney's Office.
