    • Summary of Work: Mr. Prah served as project manager for the nanofiltration membrane softening WTP expansion focusing on permitting, budget monitoring and management, and complying with internal and external Quality Review requirements. Mr. Prah was also the project engineer for the mechanical design and responsible for coordinating the design layout and drafting with other disciplines. In addition to the plant expansion, Mr. Prah was responsible for the design to demolish the existing lime softening plant and the addition of a sodium hypochlorite generation system, replacing the existing chlorine gas system. Mr. Prah contributed to the overall success of this project by having a strong commitment to construction budget limitations, assembling a top CDM design team, conducting monthly progress meetings with team and client, assigning team leaders for each major task and discipline, coordinating to provide a design that would allow for the demolition of the existing lime softening plant while placing the new plant online without disruption in service, providing continuity of design through construction phase, and discussing potential issues with regulatory agencies prior to permit submittals. Mr. Prah was also significantly involved in the construction management services for the 3-year construction project. In the early 1990s, Palm Beach County (County) began adopting nanofiltration, or membrane softening technology to simultaneously soften and decolorize the aquifer water. Water Treatment Plant No. 3 (WTP No. 3) was the first facility in the County to employ nanofiltration. WTP No. 3 is one of five Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department (PBCWUD) drinking water treatment plants operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It utilizes state-of-the-art membrane softening filters, which are fine plastic sheets through which pressurized water is pumped. After filtration, the water is degasified and disinfected. The membrane-softened water is then blended with filtered raw water before it is distributed to the surrounding suburban Delray and Boynton areas. The plant has the capacity to produce approximately 30 mgd of drinking water, and its raw water source is the underground surficial aquifer. The 30-mgd finished water capacity makes WTP No. 3 one of the largest operating nanofiltration plants in the United States. CDM provided a pilot plant study, preliminary design, a final design and construction services for the expansion from 9.4-mgd to 25.5-mgd of permeate production. In addition, a 4.5-mgd raw water by-pass and blend was added to create a total plant capacity of 30-mgd. CDM participated in membrane pilot plant studies that greatly facilitated membrane element selection and identified necessary pretreatment condition. Significant preliminary design activities included taste and odor panel testing that set a 0.15:0.85 pretreated raw water to membrane permeate ratio. Key features of the facility include: One of the largest operating nanofiltration facilities in the United States; Innovative approach to raw water blending resulting in lowered capital and operational costs; Site-enhancing landscaping utilizing native South Florida vegetation and fully automated and secured facility. In response to the rapidly developing needs of the mid County area, PBCWUD identified the need to significantly expand the treatment capacity of WTP No. 3. This facility has been operated since the mid-1990s using 9.4-mgd of nanofiltration and 7-mgd of lime softening water. A phase-out of the existing lime facilities was desired with the full treatment capacity to be delivered by nanofiltration. CDM was retained to provide preliminary and final design services as well as subsequent construction management services. Due to changes in utility philosophy PBCWUD desired to significantly alter the configuration of the existing plant and add an entirely new membrane process building while maintaining full use of the existing treatment capacity. This approach allowed all membrane treatment to be consolidated and the existing buildings to be re-used for associated pretreatment and pumping functions. CDM carefully crafted a construction sequence that allowed orderly startup of new capacity without existing facility operation interruption. Other significant preliminary design activities included taste and odor panel testing that set a 0.15:0.85 pretreated raw water to membrane permeate ratio. This situation allowed the 30-mgd facility to blend 4.5-mgd of relatively inexpensive pretreated raw water with 25.5-mgd of membrane permeate to minimize capital and operational costs. In addition, CDM participated in membrane pilot plant studies that greatly facilitated membrane element selection and identified necessary pretreatment condition. The improvements for which CDM provided contract drawings and specifications included: pretreatment systems including sand separation, acid addition, and cartridge filtration; membrane treatment including feedwater pumping, nanofiltration treatment, and associated membrane cleaning facilities; post-treatment including degasification, off gas odor control, blended water clearwell storage, on-site sodium hypochlorite disinfection, chemical addition for water stabilization, and transfer pumping; raw water blending including separate cartridge filtration; chemical storage and feed facilities; new membrane process building and extensively renovated existing process buildings: concentrate disposal system including repump station; electrical improvements including emergency generator and diesel fuel storage; finished water storage and pumping improvements including two 5 mg ground storage tanks and new high service pumping, landscaping and irrigation; yard piping and process piping; civil site work including stormwater control; instrumentation and controls include automated facility control and operation; demolition of certain existing facilities; and related appurtenances required to provide a complete and fully functional plant. CDM was also contracted by PBCWUD to provide extensive construction management services including on-site representation, shop drawing review, project meeting attendance, and other related duties. The facility came fully on-line in November 2005. “The recent Open House and Ribbon cutting marked an important milestone in the County’s commitment to safe and reliable drinking water for our residents. We are proud of the facility’s recent upgrades that give it the capacity to provide 30 mgd of high quality and great tasting drinking water for our community.” ~Bevin A. Beaudet, P.E.

    • Summary of Work: Mr. Prah served as project manager for the new 10.0-mgd LPRO WTP focusing on permitting, budget monitoring and management, and complying with internal and external Quality Review requirements. He was also the project engineer for the mechanical design and responsible for coordinating the design layout and drafting with other disciplines. In addition to the design for the new plant, Mr. Prah was responsible to design for modifications to the three existing surface WTPs for each city, a raw and finished water pipeline, and the addition of a 750 lb/day on-site sodium hypochlorite generation system. South Bay (collectively known as the “Lake Region”), located in western Palm Beach County on the south/southeast shore of Lake Okeechobee, and has utilized the lake as a surface water supply for their potable water demand. This surface water supply has a high organic carbon content, high color values, and widely varying alkalinity and hardness values. The current conventional surface water treatment facilities operated by the individual cities (Lake Region utilities) have relatively long service lives and do not have the necessary treatment processes to meet the stringent requirements of the Interim Surface Water Treatment Rule, the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, or the Stage 2 Microbial Disinfectants and Disinfection By-Product Rule. Also, the allocation of surface water from the lake has become an issue relating to the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. In order to assist these communities in providing fully regulatory compliant potable water to sustain residential, tourism, commercial, and industrial development, the PBCWUD agreed to construct a new 10-mgd treatment facility to provide potable water on a wholesale basis to the Lake Region communities. To eliminate the surface water supply and associated need for a surface water plant, the PBCWUD elected to use brackish water from the Upper Floridan aquifer (UFA) as a supply source to a facility using low pressure reverse osmosis (LPRO) as the primary treatment process. This Lake Region Water Treatment Plant (LRWTP) LPRO facility is the first in-land membrane facility in Florida and taps an essentially unused supply source. The project included a new UFA wellfield, a new treatment facility, on-site storage and distribution pumping, associated pipelines to deliver water to the individual Lake Region communities, and deep well injection for concentrate (brine) disposal. CDM was contracted by the PBCWUD to provide a conceptual analysis, a preliminary engineering report, a preliminary design report, final design services, and limited construction management services. For this project, CDM completed a Conceptual Analysis Report (October 2001), a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) for the LRWTP (April 2003), a Preliminary Design Report (October 2004), and Final Design Drawings and Specifications (July 2005). Other associated work products have included the LRWTP – Financial Analysis Letter Report (September 2002); the City of Belle Glade Water Accountability, Billing and Collection Study (September 2003); Belle Glade Injection Well Conversion Feasibility Investigation (April 2004); and Preliminary Design Report Palm Beach County LRWTP Deep Injection Well System for Concentrate Disposal (August 2004). CDM also provided an extensive amount of public outreach to the communities by supporting the County in both public information meetings and focused meetings with the various City leaders in the Lake Region communities. The facility went to bid in August 2005 and had a groundbreaking ceremony in September 2005. As of September 2008, the facility was approximately 99 percent complete with punch-list work remaining. The facility began producing and delivering potable water in April 2008. In general, CDM designed a new 10-mgd finished water capacity LPRO facility, as well as associated raw water, finished water, and concentrate water transmission mains and UFA wells. Design services related to the various components of the concentrate disposal system (transmission main and other appurtenances) were also included in the design scope of services. For the PBCWUD-requested 10-mgd finished water capacity, the following flows or capacities were established, based upon water quality and quantity parameters: (1) a membrane permeate treatment capacity of 9.5-mgd, (2) a pretreated raw water blending flow of 0.5-mgd, (3) a firm raw water production capacity of 12.375-mgd, and (4) a concentrate flow rate of 2.375-mgd. The LPRO process resulted in a membrane permeate water with low hardness, low alkalinity, and moderate chloride concentrations. To provide a more stable finished water and reduce post-treatment chemical needs, a certain amount of pretreated raw water will be combined with the permeate water to form the finished water. The desired blend ratio was established using taste and odor panel testing as well as estimated blended water quality analysis. The new LRWTP is located on land acquired by PBCWUD near Belle Glade. Four LPRO membrane skids are used for the 9.5-mgd permeate capacity, each with a permeate production capacity of 2.375-mgd. Pretreatment processes for the membrane feed water include pH adjustment for calcium carbonate scaling control, possible scale inhibitor addition for mineral scaling control, and 5-micron cartridge filtration. Pretreatment processes for the raw water to be used for blending include pH adjustment and cartridge filtration. Post-treatment processes include degasification for carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide reduction, chlorine addition for primary disinfection, ammonia addition for monochloramine formation for the distribution system disinfectant, carbon dioxide addition to increase carbonate alkalinity upon pH adjustment, pH adjustment with caustic soda, corrosion inhibitor addition, and, in the future, lime addition for calcium hardness addition. The finished water is transferred from the degasifier clearwell to an on-site 3.0 million gallon (MG) ground storage tank (GST). A high service pump (HSP) station provides pressure for transmission to the various utilities. A 30-inch diameter finished water main leaves the plant. A 16-inch diameter main branches from the 30-inch diameter main and delivers up to 1.5-mgd of finished water flow to Pahokee.

    • Over the course of five years, CDM successfully provided engineering services related to alternatives analysis, pilot plant testing, preliminary, and final design, bidding services, and services during construction for Water Treatment Plant No. 9 (WTP No. 9). The project involved the construction of a new 27 mgd finished water capacity nanofiltration (membrane softening) facility associated pre-treatment, post treatment, storage, and high service pumping systems. The design and construction of the new facilities was complicated by the fact that the existing WTP No. 9 lime softening facility was required to remain in constant operation during the new construction. Given that the new facilities were immediately adjacent to golf course fairways and homes, extraordinary care also had to be given to noise abatement and landscaping as well as providing advanced security protection measures. • The 27-mgd finished water capacity WTP No. 9 is one of the largest operating NF plants in the United States • The design utilized extensive well investigations, side-by-side membrane element pilot tests, and taste and odor panel evaluation to establish rigorous pretreatment processes • Extraordinary noise abatement, landscaping and advanced security features • The project was completed with a non-owner requested change order rate of less than 1.0 percent, substantially below Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department’s benchmark value of 3.0 percent. Key Features • One of the largest operating nanofiltration membrane treatment facilities in the United States • Unique location totally within golf course, neighborhood-friendly architecture • The preliminary and final design, and bidding service milestones were achieved on-time and within budget • Fully automated and highly secured facility. Originally constructed in 1971, WTP No. 9 was operating near its 14-mgd permitted capacity. CDM’s initial ser-vices involved the performance of a treatment process alternative analysis study. This study evaluated nanofiltration (membrane softening), low pressure reverse osmosis, anionic exchange, and lime softening with ozonation for a 20 mgd facility on a cost and performance basis. The study demonstrated that the nanofiltration process would be the optional treatment technology due to the ability of the process to simultaneously soften the water, reduce color and disinfection by-products to very low levels, and remove microbiology contaminants. Subsequent evaluation including taste and odor panel testing demonstrated that up to 4-mgd of pretreated local surficial aquifer water could be blended with 23-mgd of nanofiltration permeate to produce 27-mgd of high quality finished water. Extensive pilot plant testing was conducted to evaluate competing membrane softening elements, on a side-by-side basis. This testing proved highly valuable for the membrane procurement effort for which CDM prepared technical specifications and warranty documents. The pilot testing revealed a previously unknown sand and well debris problem with the well water. The testing also revealed a potential fouling problem with the use of certain antiscalants with the high organic carbon raw water source. CDM was retained to provide preliminary and final design, bidding, and services during construction for a new 27-mgd finished water capacity nanofiltration membrane treatment facility. The improvements for which CDM provided contract drawings and specifications included: pretreatment systems including sand separation; acid addition, and cartridge filtration; membrane treatment including feedwater pumping; nanofiltration treatment, and associated membrane cleaning facilities; post-treatment including degasification; off-gas odor control; blended water clearwell storage; disinfection; chemical addition for water stabilization, and transfer pumping; raw water blending including separate cartridge filtration; chemical storage and feed facilities; new membrane process building and post-treatment process building; concentrate disposal system including repump station; electrical improvements including emergency generator and diesel fuel storage; finished water storage and pumping improvements including two 5 million-gallon ground storage tanks and new high service pumping; landscaping and irrigation; yard piping and process piping; civil site work including stormwater control; instrumentation and controls with automated facility control and operation features; demolition of existing lime softening facilities; and related appurtenances required to provide a complete and fully functional plant. Beginning in 1999, CDM provided general construction services that included periodic site visits, shop drawing reviews, reviewing vendor supplied operation and maintenance manuals responding to Request for Interests and attending monthly progress meetings. CDM subsequently assisted with plant startup. The facility started up in Fall 2001 with the final demolition work completed in 2004. July 2009 FORM C-6

    • Preliminary Design and Pilot Testing – CDM was retained by the City to prepare a water supply system evaluation and a water master plan update. Our recommendations included the use of low pressure reverse osmosis (LPRO) membrane technology for the initial 2-mgd expansion based on its (1) ability to effectively reduce chloride concentrations well below the 250 mg/L secondary drinking water standard enforced in Florida, (2) amenability to blending with lime softened water, and (3) potential to allow future use of a deeper, more brackish aquifer. To proceed towards successful project implementation, CDM performed further services relating to the preparation of an Initial Raw Water Supply and Treatment Alternatives Analysis (including significant hydraulic modeling of the raw water wellfield and concentrate disposal alternatives analysis), performing pilot plant testing and producing a report detailing the findings, and producing a Preliminary Design Report for the facility capacity expansion. The Preliminary Design Report provided design and operating criteria for two, 1.0 mgd permeate capacity LPRO skids as well as assorted pretreatment (acidification, antiscalant addition and cartridge filtration), membrane feed pumping, and post-treatment (degasification, off gas odor control primary disinfection with chloramines using ammonia addition, pH adjustment for water stabilization using sodium hydroxide addition, phosphoric acid addition for corrosion control, and fluoridation using fluorosilicic acid addition). The facility improvements will also include a new Membrane Process Building, new transfer and high service pumping, emergency generator upgrades, new bulk chemical storage and feed facilities including a conversion to bulk sodium hypochlorite solution from gaseous chlorine, and a membrane cleaning system. A key component of the Initial Raw Water Supply and Treatment Alternatives Analysis and the Preliminary Design Report was the detailed evaluation of the various concentrate treatment and disposal options. CDM recommended that the concentrate be blended with the wastewater effluent in an equalization basin subsequent to chlorination. As such, the concentrate water will serve to augment the reclaimed water demand while allowing a surface water discharge that meets permitting requirements. Other services performed by CDM included the completion and submittal of necessary permit applications for construction of the WTP improvements and modification of the wastewater facility operations permit to accommodate the concentrate water blending. Engineering Services and Financial Feasibility Study – The City of Ormond Beach (city) retained CDM to provide design and permitting activities for the city’s water treatment plant (WTP) expansion. Also included is the preparation of a Utility System Comprehensive Financial Planning and Rate Study. The project consists of two major tasks: Task 1 – Final Design and Task 2 – Utility System Comprehensive Financial Planning and Rate Study. In August 2007, CDM was selected to perform comprehensive engineering services for the wastewater plant expansion. Final Design – The proposed improvements to the Ormond Beach WTP were designed to accommodate future facilities expansion up to 12-mgd, 8-mgd lime softening capacity and 4-mgd LPRO capacity. During early construction activities, the City of Ormond Beach re evaluated projected potable water demands and, as a result of this re-evaluation, the city decided to proceed with the installation of the complete 4.0 mgd of LPRO treatment capacity in lieu of providing an initial installed capacity of 2.0 mgd as originally planned. Therefore, CDM revised the final design to incorporate the full 4.0 mgd LPRO capacity. CDM provided engineering services for the following improvements: demolition and site preparation; entrance relocation; lime softening odor control scrubber; disinfection system conversion; raw water supply system; pre-treatment system; LPRO membrane system; membrane process and administration building; degasification/clearwell complex; post-treatment facilities; high service pumping; electrical system; instrumentation and control system; bulk chemical containment area; sulfuric acid system; antiscalant system; on-site sodium hypochlorite generation system; ammonia system; sodium hydroxide system; phosphoric acid system; fluorosilicic acid system; and storage building concentrate disposal. CDM provided general construction and inspection services for the water treatment plant expansion. Construction services included: log, process and review shop drawings; conduct periodic visits to the job site; and attend monthly meetings to discuss and agree on construction scheduling, problems and/or techniques. Construction inspection services included providing a Resident Project Representative that is a certified Professional Engineer registered in the State of Florida for construction observation. “Providing safe drinking water is the most important service the City provides. This low pressure reverse osmosis treatment system expansion provides the City with a 50 percent increase in capacity at the water plant. The low pressure reverse osmosis process is the best technology currently available and will allow the City to meet future regulatory requirements and treat lower quality water in the future. The project team of CDM, Meadors Construction Company, Inc., and the City, with the assistance of the SJRWMD, have created a state-of-the-art facility with which to serve Ormond Beach. It has been a pleasure to work with all the individuals on this project team.” ~Judy Sloane, Public Works Director, City of Ormond Beach July 2009 FORM C-8

    • The state-of-the-art Regional Surface Water Treatment Plant came on-line in September 2002, introducing the first non groundwater supply into the regional drinking water system. The plant, which is the hub of Tampa Bay Water’s interconnected Master Water Plan, treats water harvested from the Tampa Bypass Canal, and Alafia and Hillsborough rivers. Tampa Bay Water is the largest wholesale water supplier in Florida, providing high-quality drinking water to its members, who in turn supply water to nearly two million residents of the Tampa Bay area. As part of a team led by USFilter (now Veolia), CDM was awarded a contract to design a 60 mgd, state-of-the-art regional surface water treatment plant for Tampa Bay Water. The design was one component of a 15-year DBO contract awarded to USFilter for the project. The $144 million agreement was one of the largest water treatment DBO contracts in the United States and an essential component of Tampa Bay Water’s plan to meet the region’s need for new water supplies. The contract included approximately $88 million in capital costs and $56 million in operation and maintenance fees over the initial 15 year term and a five-year option period. Because of the accelerated schedule for the project, CDM was tasked with completing water treatment plant design drawings for permit submittal in less than six months. In addition, Tampa Bay Water decided to increase the capacity of the facility from 60 mgd to 66 mgd about halfway through the project without modifying the contract completion date. CDM mobilized additional design staff to assure Tampa Bay Water that the design capacity changes would get made without impacting the overall project schedule. The CDM team met all design schedule commitments required by the USFilter contract with Tampa Bay Water. Design plans called for using the ACTIFLO® high rate ballasted flocculation process. This process is particularly advantageous when treating large flow rates with variable raw water quality, the conditions anticipated for the regional WTP. The facility is required to meet water quality standards that exceed the current EPA Safe Drinking Water Act requirements for potable water. Additional processes used in the design include ozonation as the primary disinfection process and biologically active filters using a deep bed granular activated carbon medium. The ozone system is a Fuji Ozone system using liquid oxygen as the feed gas. This high efficiency, chilled-water cooled system has a nominal capacity of 2,000 lbs/day ozone at 10 percent concentration or 4,000 lbs/day at 8 percent concentration. A large-scale pilot testing program executed by CDM and USFilter at the Lake Manatee WTP demonstrated that CDM’s process design offered better finished water quality, improved process reliability, reduced treatment costs and reduced space requirements over the conventional flocculation-sedimentation design specified in the base bid requirements for the project. In 2006, CDM completed uprating studies that expanded the facility to 72-mgd. March 2008, CDM finalized the design to expand the facility to 120 mgd finished water capacity with a 100 percent increase in ozone generation capacity. Tampa Bay Water member governments include the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg, and Tampa, and the counties of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas. CDM received a Grand Award in the Design Category from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers for this project. “Eighty million dollars represents compelling savings. These savings translate into lower water rates for our residents. Forward- thinking utilities have to consider the benefits of working with a private-sector partner that provides access to the latest technology and operational economies of scale." ~ Jerry Maxwell, General Manager, Tampa Bay Water July 2009 FORM C-10

    • Summary of Work: Dr. Thompson served as the Design Director for the 30-mgd WTP #3 Nanofiltration Membrane Treatment Plant. He was responsible for designing all process and mechanical improvements for the conversion of the existing nanofiltration facility to a far greater capacity nanofiltration facility or 25.5 mgd of nanofiltration in combination with 4.5 mgf of raw water blending. Dr Thompson also oversaw the preparation of the Preliminary Design Report and provided oversight of the pilot plant testing being performed by County employees. Dr. Thompson also assisted the Project Manager, Mr. Dave Prah, in the oversight and coordination of the specialty design functions. In the early 1990s, Palm Beach County (County) began adopting nanofiltration, or membrane softening technology to simultaneously soften and decolorize the aquifer water. Water Treatment Plant No. 3 (WTP No. 3) was the first facility in the County to employ nanofiltration. WTP No. 3 is one of five Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department drinking water treatment plants operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It utilizes state-of-the-art membrane softening filters, which are fine plastic sheets through which pressurized water is pumped. After filtration, the water is degasified and disinfected. The membrane-softened water is then blended with filtered raw water before it is distributed to the surrounding suburban Delray and Boynton areas. The plant has the capacity to produce approximately 30 mgd of drinking water, and its raw water source is the underground surficial aquifer. The 30-mgd finished water capacity makes WTP No. 3 one of the largest operating nanofiltration plants in the United States. CDM provided a pilot plant study, preliminary design, a final design and construction services for the expansion from 9.4-mgd to 25.5-mgd of permeate production. In addition, a 4.5-mgd raw water by-pass and blend was added to create a total plant capacity of 30-mgd. CDM participated in membrane pilot plant studies that greatly facilitated membrane element selection and identified necessary pretreatment condition. Significant preliminary design activities included taste and odor panel testing that set a 0.15:0.85 pretreated raw water to membrane permeate ratio. Key features of the facility include: • One of the largest operating nanofiltration facilities in the United States • Innovative approach to raw water blending resulting in lowered capital and operational costs • Site-enhancing landscaping utilizing native South Florida vegetation • Fully automated and secured facility. • In response to the rapidly developing needs of the mid County area, Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department (PBCWUD) identified the need to significantly expand the treatment capacity of WTP No. 3. This facility has been operated since the mid-1990s using 9.4-mgd of nanofiltration and 7 mgd of lime softening water. A phase-out of the existing lime facilities was desired with the full treatment capacity to be delivered by nanofiltration. CDM was retained to provide preliminary and final design services as well as subsequent construction management services. Due to changes in utility philosophy PBCWUD desired to significantly alter the configuration of the existing plant and add an entirely new membrane process building while maintaining full use of the existing treatment capacity. This approach allowed all membrane treatment to be consolidated and the existing buildings to be re-used for associated pretreatment and pumping functions. CDM carefully crafted a construction sequence that allowed orderly startup of new capacity without existing facility operation interruption. Other significant preliminary design activities included taste and odor panel testing that set a 0.15:0.85 pretreated raw water to membrane permeate ratio. This situation allowed the 30-mgd facility to blend 4.5-mgd of relatively inexpensive pretreated raw water with 25.5-mgd of membrane permeate to minimize capital and operational costs. In addition, CDM participated in membrane pilot plant studies that greatly facilitated membrane element selection and identified necessary pretreatment condition. The improvements for which CDM provided contract drawings and specifications included: pretreatment systems including sand separation, acid addition, and cartridge filtration; membrane treatment including feedwater pumping, nanofiltration treatment, and associated membrane cleaning facilities; post-treatment including degasification, off gas odor control, blended water clearwell storage, on-site sodium hypochlorite disinfection, chemical addition for water stabilization, and transfer pumping; raw water blending including separate cartridge filtration; chemical storage and feed facilities; new membrane process building and extensively renovated existing process buildings: concentrate disposal system including repump station; electrical improvements including emergency generator and diesel fuel storage; finished water storage and pumping improvements including two 5 mg ground storage tanks and new high service pumping, landscaping and irrigation; yard piping and process piping; civil site work including stormwater control; instrumentation and controls include automated facility control and operation; demolition of certain existing facilities; and related appurtenances required to provide a complete and fully functional plant. CDM was also contracted by PBCWUD to provide extensive construction management services including on-site representation, shop drawing review, project meeting attendance, and other related duties. The facility came fully on-line in November 2005. “The recent Open House and Ribbon cutting marked an important milestone in the County’s commitment to safe and reliable drinking water for our residents. We are proud of the facility’s recent upgrades that give it the capacity to provide 30 mgd of high quality and great tasting drinking water for our community.” ~Bevin A. Beaudet, P.E.

Dr. Thompson also provided input into the design and construction of new pilot plant facilities providing side-by-side testing of three sets of membranes, each on a full-pilot scale basis. South Bay (collectively known as the “Lake Region”), located in western Palm Beach County on the south/southeast shore of Lake Okeechobee, and has utilized the lake as a surface water supply for their potable water demand. This surface water supply has a high organic carbon content, high color values, and widely varying alkalinity and hardness values. The current conventional surface water treatment facilities operated by the individual cities (Lake Region utilities) have relatively long service lives and do not have the necessary treatment processes to meet the stringent requirements of the Interim Surface Water Treatment Rule, the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule, or the Stage 2 Microbial Disinfectants and Disinfection By-Product Rule. Also, the allocation of surface water from the lake has become an issue relating to the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. In order to assist these communities in providing fully regulatory compliant potable water to sustain residential, tourism, commercial, and industrial development, the PBCWUD agreed to construct a new 10-mgd treatment facility to provide potable water on a wholesale basis to the Lake Region communities. To eliminate the surface water supply and associated need for a surface water plant, the PBCWUD elected to use brackish water from the Upper Floridan aquifer (UFA) as a supply source to a facility using low pressure reverse osmosis (LPRO) as the primary treatment process. This Lake Region Water Treatment Plant (LRWTP) LPRO facility is the first in-land membrane facility in Florida and taps an essentially unused supply source. The project included a new UFA wellfield, a new treatment facility, on-site storage and distribution pumping, associated pipelines to deliver water to the individual Lake Region communities, and deep well injection for concentrate (brine) disposal. CDM was contracted by the PBCWUD to provide a conceptual analysis, a preliminary engineering report, a preliminary design report, final design services, and limited construction management services. For this project, CDM completed a Conceptual Analysis Report (October 2001), a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) for the LRWTP (April 2003), a Preliminary Design Report (October 2004), and Final Design Drawings and Specifications (July 2005). Other associated work products have included the LRWTP – Financial Analysis Letter Report (September 2002); the City of Belle Glade Water Accountability, Billing and Collection Study (September 2003); Belle Glade Injection Well Conversion Feasibility Investigation (April 2004); and Preliminary Design Report Palm Beach County LRWTP Deep Injection Well System for Concentrate Disposal (August 2004). CDM also provided an extensive amount of public outreach to the communities by supporting the County in both public information meetings and focused meetings with the various City leaders in the Lake Region communities. The facility went to bid in August 2005 and had a groundbreaking ceremony in September 2005. As of September 2008, the facility was approximately 99 percent complete with punch-list work remaining. The facility began producing and delivering potable water in April 2008. In general, CDM designed a new 10-mgd finished water capacity LPRO facility, as well as associated raw water, finished water, and concentrate water transmission mains and UFA wells. Design services related to the various components of the concentrate disposal system (transmission main and other appurtenances) were also included in the design scope of services. For the PBCWUD-requested 10-mgd finished water capacity, the following flows or capacities were established, based upon water quality and quantity parameters: (1) a membrane permeate treatment capacity of 9.5-mgd, (2) a pretreated raw water blending flow of 0.5-mgd, (3) a firm raw water production capacity of 12.375-mgd, and (4) a concentrate flow rate of 2.375-mgd. The LPRO process resulted in a membrane permeate water with low hardness, low alkalinity, and moderate chloride concentrations. To provide a more stable finished water and reduce post-treatment chemical needs, a certain amount of pretreated raw water will be combined with the permeate water to form the finished water. The desired blend ratio was established using taste and odor panel testing as well as estimated blended water quality analysis. The new LRWTP is located on land acquired by PBCWUD near Belle Glade. Four LPRO membrane skids are used for the 9.5-mgd permeate capacity, each with a permeate production capacity of 2.375-mgd. Pretreatment processes for the membrane feed water include pH adjustment for calcium carbonate scaling control, possible scale inhibitor addition for mineral scaling control, and 5-micron cartridge filtration. Pretreatment processes for the raw water to be used for blending include pH adjustment and cartridge filtration. Post-treatment processes include degasification for carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide reduction, chlorine addition for primary disinfection, ammonia addition for monochloramine formation for the distribution system disinfectant, carbon dioxide addition to increase carbonate alkalinity upon pH adjustment, pH adjustment with caustic soda, corrosion inhibitor addition, and, in the future, lime addition for calcium hardness addition. The finished water is transferred from the degasifier clearwell to an on-site 3.0 million gallon (MG) ground storage tank (GST). A high service pump (HSP) station provides pressure for transmission to the various utilities. A 30-inch diameter finished water main leaves the plant. A 16-inch diameter main branches from the 30-inch diameter main and delivers up to 1.5-mgd of finished water flow to Pahokee. The 30-inch diameter main continues towards Belle Glade and South Bay with a 24-inch diameter main branching off to Belle Glade and a 16- inch diameter main branching off to South Bay. The 16-inch diameter transmission main carries up to 1.5-mgd of finished water to South Bay. Up to 7.0-mgd of finished water from the LRWTP is to be delivered to Belle Glade via a 24-inch diameter transmission main. July 2009 FORM D-4

The alternatives analysis also involved lime softening with ozone and granular activated carbon (GAC) treatment and ion exchange for organic carbon reduction. The anticipated use of Upper Floridan aquifer water as a raw water source for this facility represents a new water supply approach in the Palm Beach County area. July 2009 FORM D-5
    • Over the course of five years, CDM successfully provided engineering services related to alternatives analysis, pilot plant testing, preliminary, and final design, bidding services, and services during construction for Water Treatment Plant No. 9 (WTP No. 9). The project involved the construction of a new 27 mgd finished water capacity nanofiltration (membrane softening) facility associated pre-treatment, post treatment, storage, and high service pumping systems. The design and construction of the new facilities was complicated by the fact that the existing WTP No. 9 lime softening facility was required to remain in constant operation during the new construction. Given that the new facilities were immediately adjacent to golf course fairways and homes, extraordinary care also had to be given to noise abatement and landscaping as well as providing advanced security protection measures. • The 27-mgd finished water capacity WTP No. 9 is one of the largest operating NF plants in the United States • The design utilized extensive well investigations, side-by-side membrane element pilot tests, and taste and odor panel evaluation to establish rigorous pretreatment processes • Extraordinary noise abatement, landscaping and advanced security features • The project was completed with a non-owner requested change order rate of less than 1.0 percent, substantially below Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department’s benchmark value of 3.0 percent. Key Features • One of the largest operating nanofiltration facilities in the United States • Unique location totally within golf course, neighborhood-friendly architecture • The preliminary and final design, and bidding service milestones were achieved on-time and within budget • Fully automated and highly secured facility. Originally constructed in 1971, WTP No. 9 was operating near its 14-mgd permitted capacity. CDM’s initial ser-vices involved the performance of a treatment process alternative analysis study. This study evaluated nanofiltration (membrane softening), low pressure reverse osmosis, anionic exchange, and lime softening with ozonation for a 20 mgd facility on a cost and performance basis. The study demonstrated that the nanofiltration process would be the optional treatment technology due to the ability of the process to simultaneously soften the water, reduce color and disinfection by-products to very low levels, and remove microbiology contaminants. Subsequent evaluation including taste and odor panel testing demonstrated that up to 4-mgd of pretreated local surficial aquifer water could be blended with 23-mgd of nanofiltration permeate to produce 27-mgd of high quality finished water. Extensive pilot plant testing was conducted to evaluate competing membrane softening elements, on a side-by-side basis. This testing proved highly valuable for the membrane procurement effort for which CDM prepared technical specifications and warranty documents. The pilot testing revealed a previously unknown sand and well debris problem with the well water. The testing also revealed a potential fouling problem with the use of certain antiscalants with the high organic carbon raw water source. CDM was retained to provide preliminary and final design, bidding, and services during construction for a new 27-mgd finished water capacity nanofiltration membrane treatment facility. The improvements for which CDM provided contract drawings and specifications included: pretreatment systems including sand separation; acid addition, and cartridge filtration; membrane treatment including feedwater pumping; nanofiltration treatment, and associated membrane cleaning facilities; post-treatment including degasification; off-gas odor control; blended water clearwell storage; disinfection; chemical addition for water stabilization, and transfer pumping; raw water blending including separate cartridge filtration; chemical storage and feed facilities; new membrane process building and post-treatment process building; concentrate disposal system including repump station; electrical improvements including emergency generator and diesel fuel storage; finished water storage and pumping improvements including two 5 million-gallon ground storage tanks and new high service pumping; landscaping and irrigation; yard piping and process piping; civil site work including stormwater control; instrumentation and controls with automated facility control and operation features; demolition of existing lime softening facilities; and related appurtenances required to provide a complete and fully functional plant. Beginning in 1999, CDM provided general construction services that included periodic site visits, shop drawing reviews, reviewing vendor supplied operation and maintenance manuals responding to Request for Interests and attending monthly progress meetings. CDM subsequently assisted with plant startup. The facility started up in Fall 2001 with the final demolition work completed in 2004. July 2009 FORM D-6

    • Summary of Work: Dr. Thompson served as the project director for the design of new membrane facilities to replace the current lime softening plant. The new facility will include 26.0 mgd of NF capacity, 3.5-mgd of LPRO capacity, and 1.0 mgd of pretreated raw water blend water. Dr. Thompson also is overseeing pilot plant operations at each of the Authority’s five wellfields. The Seacoast Utility Authority (Authority) owns and operates two WTPs, the Hood Road WTP and the Richard Road WTP. Current finished water treatment capacities of the Hood Road and Richard Road WTPs are 23.0 mgd and 7.5 mgd, respectively. The Hood Road WTP is a traditional lime softening treatment facility with multi-media filtration. This plant was originally constructed in 1975 as a 10-mgd facility and was expanded in 1985 to its current capacity of 23.0 mgd. The Richard Road WTP is also a traditional lime softening treatment facility with multi- media filtration. The Authority is going to replace its existing 23.0-mgd Hood Road WTP and 7.5 mgd Richard Road WTP lime softening water treatment facilities with a single, 30.5-mgd finished water treatment capacity, membrane treatment facility located at the Hood Road site. The proposed finished water treatment capacity would be comprised of 26.0 mgd of nanofiltration (NF) membrane treatment capacity, 3.5 mgd of low pressure reverse osmosis (LPRO) membrane treatment capacity, and 1.0 mgd of pretreated local surficial aquifer (LSA) blend water. CDM was authorized on November 1, 2006, to conduct membrane pilot plant testing for characterization of the raw water to prepare a Preliminary Design Report (PDR) for the significant modifications to the existing Hood Road WTP and complete the final design. During the course of this preliminary design effort, the Authority project team requested that the plant design include the ability to be expanded in the future with an additional 1.75 mgd of LPRO permeate production. Additionally, the Authority project team requested that the equipment layout, membrane feed water piping and pump cans, and the electrical space requirements be allocated for a future conversion to a complete LPRO process at the facility (i.e., the 26.0 mgd of NF permeate production will be converted to 26.0 mgd of LPRO permeate production). In general, the conversion to a membrane treatment technology is intended to provide much improved finished water quality, particularly in the areas of color, dissolved organic carbon/total organic carbon (DOC/TOC) content, and disinfection byproduct (DBP) precursor levels. The scope of work generally includes the design of NF and LPRO membrane facilities and subsequent abandonment of the Authority’s existing lime softening water treatment process in order to improve and provide a more reliable finished water quality. The work associated with the new UFA production wells, new off-site raw water transmission, off-site finished water transmission, and concentrate water disposal (deep injection well) is not included in this Contract and will be conducted by others. A separate authorization has been approved for CDM to evaluate and design improvements to the Raw Water Repump or Booster pump stations for the four existing surficial wellfields (the Hood Road, the Lilac Road, the Richard Road and the Burma Road Wellfield Systems). The primary intent of this effort is to prepare a bid set of final design drawings and specifications based on previous design experiences, pilot plant testing and raw water characterization. This effort included; establishing the site layout and building plans; establishing appropriate design criteria; developing the over schedule and capital construction cost estimate; and providing sufficient data for site approval and certain permitting activities. Specifically, the items addressed in the design and for which contract drawings and specifications are being provided include, but are not limited to: • Raw Water Booster Pump Supply System • Sodium Hypochlorite System • Pretreatment System • Ammonia System • Membrane Treatment System • Carbon Dioxide System • Membrane Process and Administration Building • Emulsified Lime System • Degasification (Post-Treatment) Complex • Concentrate Booster Pump Station • Sulfuric Acid System • High Service Pump Station Improvements • Scale Inhibitor System • Electrical System Upgrades • Sodium Hydroxide (Caustic Soda) System • Instrumentation and Control System.

    • Summary of Work: Dr. Thompson provided process review and design services for the 8.0 mgd RO WTP improvements. This plant, utilizing low pressure RO membranes, replaced the existing 7.5 mgd lime softening WTP allowing the Utility Department to reduce its reliance on surficial aquifer wells and complying with the terms of a new 20-year CUP issued by the St. Johns River Water Management District. This plant was constructed by a CDM-led team utilizing D-B delivery. Dr. Thompson provided process design evaluation, preliminary design, and design assistance. The facility, one of the first LPRO membrane facilities in northeast Florida, utilizes the Upper Floridan aquifer which is expected to degrade with respect to chloride and sulfate with extended pumping. The facility will utilize surface water discharge of the concentrate co-currently with wastewater effluent. The St. Johns County Utility Department (SJCUD) historically relied on the local surficial aquifer and the lime softening process at the Mainland County Road 214 Water Treatment Plant (Mainland CR 214 WTP) to supply potable water to the large majority of its service area. Due to adverse wetlands impacts, limitations on the surficial aquifer supply, and commitments made to the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) during the consumptive use permitting (CUP) application and review process, the SJCUD implemented an alternative water supply strategy utilizing the more brackish Upper Floridan aquifer as the primary raw water source. As a result of the elevated chloride and sulfate concentrations found in this area, the SJCUD decided to abandon the existing lime softening process and use the LPRO membrane treatment technology at the Mainland CR 214 WTP to meet the treatment requirements for the future water supply for a growing county. CDM provided D/B services for the LPRO membrane treatment WTP to meet the treatment requirements for the future water supply for a growing county. The original basis for this decision was of the economic evaluation of alternative water supply/treatment alternatives. Following the determination that LPRO was the most cost effective long-term solution, SJCUD authorized CDM to conduct extensive pilot testing of LPRO membranes for the purposes of establishing performance characteristics, identifying potential water quality concerns, and establishing design criteria for a new WTP. As a result of the successful pilot testing, SJCUD then proceeded with the procurement of design-build services to implement the facility. In a competitive selection, CDM was awarded the contract to design-build the new LPRO WTP. CDM initiated the design work effort with a preliminary design report that was suitable for Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) permitting of the facility. Once the preliminary design was complete, CDM began the final design of the facility. Once the design was sufficiently complete, CDM started negotiations of the guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for the project construction. As the engineering- procurement-construction management (EPCM) contractor, CDM was responsible for assisting with the procurement of membranes and equipment for the owner. CDM made use of a cooperative procurement approach that allowed SJCUD to issue the purchase orders for the major equipment items and save significantly through the sales tax exemption. In addition, CDM was responsible for the procurement of subcontract services and provided construction management for the project. Construction of facilities improvements was initiated in December 2005 and the project was completed in 2007. The new LPRO WTP has a finished water production capacity of 8 mgd (4-mgd LPRO permeate and 4-mgd raw water blend). The new facilities include a membrane process building and pretreatment system including acid addition, antiscalant addition, and cartridge filtration. The LPRO membrane system includes feed pumps, membrane skids, control system, and cleaning system. Post treatment systems included degasification, disinfection, water stabilization (pH adjustment), transfer pumping, and concentrate storage and pumping. “This water treatment plant is a major step in our long-term strategy to assure a viable, environmentally sound plan for water provision for the next 20 to 30 years. Through collaboration with the Water Management District, we have made every effort to act responsibly, as environmental stewards for our County.” ~Bill Young, Director of St. Johns County Utility Department July 2009 FORM D-10

    • Summary of Work: Mr. Mucha led CDM’s services during the construction phase of this project and was responsible for the delivery of the contractual scope and schedule and budget throughout the construction phase. He was also a key contributor to the planning, constructability review, safety, Maintenance of Plant Operation (MOPO) planning, start-up and commissioning of the new facilities. CDM supplied engineering, design, permitting, bidding and construction services for upgrading two water treatment plants owned and operated by St. Johns County, Florida, as part of a design-build contract with the county. As part of the CR214 Water Treatment Plant (WTP) project, CDM designed a 13,500 linear feet 36 inch diameter raw water main from the county’s wellfield site to the water plant site. The pipe line serves to supply raw water from the four new upper floridan wells to the new membrane water treatment plant. The existing CR214 lime-softening plant was replaced with a new membrane WTP. The county’s new membrane WTP operates with a rated capacity of 8 mgd and is located at on County Road 214 just off of Interstate 95 in central St. Johns County. As part of the water plant improvements for the Northwest WTP, CDM designed a 4,100 linear feet of new 36 inch raw water main supply water to the expanded plant. This pipe conveys water from three existing upper Floridan raw water wells and future wells to the water plant. The existing Northwest WTP was expanded using aeration and chlorination. The new expanded plant is capable of treating a flow of 9 mgd. The plant is located on International Golf Parkway off of Interstate 95 in the north part of St. Johns County. CDM initiated construction of the planned improvements utilizing local vendors and subcontractors to complete a significant percentage of the work. July 2009 FORM DD-2

    • Summary of Work: Mr. Mucha worked together with the design engineers, was responsible for scheduling, manpower and equipment allocations, subcontracts and subcontractor coordination, procurement, construction layout, permitting, payment applications, claims resolution, and project close-out. The St. Johns County Utility Department (SJCUD) historically relied on the local surficial aquifer and the lime softening process at the Mainland County Road 214 Water Treatment Plant (Mainland CR 214 WTP) to supply potable water to the large majority of its service area. Due to adverse wetlands impacts, limitations on the surficial aquifer supply, and commitments made to the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) during the consumptive use permitting (CUP) application and review process, the SJCUD implemented an alternative water supply strategy utilizing the more brackish Upper Floridan aquifer as the primary raw water source. As a result of the elevated chloride and sulfate concentrations found in this area, the SJCUD decided to abandon the existing lime softening process and use the LPRO membrane treatment technology at the Mainland CR 214 WTP to meet the treatment requirements for the future water supply for a growing county. CDM provided D/B services for the LPRO membrane treatment WTP to meet the treatment requirements for the future water supply for a growing county. The original basis for this decision was of the economic evaluation of alternative water supply/treatment alternatives. Following the determination that LPRO was the most cost effective long-term solution, SJCUD authorized CDM to conduct extensive pilot testing of LPRO membranes for the purposes of establishing performance characteristics, identifying potential water quality concerns, and establishing design criteria for a new WTP. As a result of the successful pilot testing, SJCUD then proceeded with the procurement of design-build services to implement the facility. In a competitive selection, CDM was awarded the contract to design-build the new LPRO WTP. CDM initiated the design work effort with a preliminary design report that was suitable for Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) permitting of the facility. Once the preliminary design was complete, CDM began the final design of the facility. Once the design was sufficiently complete, CDM started negotiations of the guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for the project construction. As the engineering- procurement-construction management (EPCM) contractor, CDM was responsible for assisting with the procurement of membranes and equipment for the owner. CDM made use of a cooperative procurement approach that allowed SJCUD to issue the purchase orders for the major equipment items and save significantly through the sales tax exemption. In addition, CDM was responsible for the procurement of subcontract services and provided construction management for the project. Construction of facilities improvements was initiated in December 2005 and the project was completed in 2007. The new LPRO WTP has a finished water production capacity of 8 mgd (4-mgd LPRO permeate and 4-mgd raw water blend). The new facilities include a membrane process building and pretreatment system including acid addition, antiscalant addition, and cartridge filtration. The LPRO membrane system includes feed pumps, membrane skids, control system, and cleaning system. Post treatment systems included degasification, disinfection, water stabilization (pH adjustment), transfer pumping, and concentrate storage and pumping. “This water treatment plant is a major step in our long-term strategy to assure a viable, environmentally sound plan for water provision for the next 20 to 30 years. Through collaboration with the Water Management District, we have made every effort to act responsibly, as environmental stewards for our County.” ~Bill Young, Director of St. Johns County Utility Department July 2009 FORM DD-4

This contract included completion of the original design services, permitting, site work, 550 linear feet (lf) of channel realignment and revetment, and 660 lf of 72 inch CIPP. The CIPP work also included construction of a large junction box to allow for diversion of the CIPP. Value engineering performed during the course of design and construction assured both efficiency and the delivery of the best value for all stakeholders. During these reviews, the collaboration of the design and construction teams resulted in reconfiguring of the pipe culvert entrance to allow the culvert channel to be shifted away from an existing building, eliminating the need for steel shoring. Accordingly, a voluntary deduction of $62,813 was provided to the County at the end of the project.

    • Summary of Work: Mr. Mucha oversaw the construction of the culvert rehabilitation project for Clay County Florida. This design/build project consisted of 660 lf of 72-inch cast in place pipe, junction box, mitered end section, 550 lf of realigned storm channel utilizing gabions and associated site work including restoration of property. Mr. Mucha’s cooperation with local businesses attributed to the on time delivery of this sensitive and limited access project. In late 2007, an unusually intense rainfall event caused a large, deep sinkhole to develop immediately adjacent to occupied retail buildings. High flows had caused a catastrophic failure of twin 72-inch stormwater corrugated metal pipes. Nearby, a concrete-lined open channel had failed and threatened adjacent light industrial buildings. A multidisciplinary team of engineers and construction personnel from CDM were deployed to assist Clay County, Florida, with an emergency response to stabilize the stormwater system and the at-risk buildings, working around the clock under an emergency purchase order. At the completion of the emergency response, the County contracted with CDM for full repairs under a design-build contract. The County was aware of the deteriorated condition of the system before the failures, and a rehabilitation design was in progress by CDM. The County had intended to complete the project under a design-bid-build approach. However, the failures subsequent to the rainfall event made it imperative to complete the project in advance of the upcoming hurricane season when heavy rains could pose additional risks. The County authorized emergency funding to begin the project immediately following completion of the emergency response. It was Clay County’s first design-build project and County officials, previously ambivalent toward the design-build approach, acknowledged that this was the ideal contract vehicle for this unique circumstance. The project goals were to stabilize the commercial buildings from threat of structural failure, protect the public, and complete the project prior to the upcoming hurricane season. The project included cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) rehabilitation of the failed underground pipes and gabion basket revetment of the failed open channel. Changed conditions required adaptation of the original design, including realignment of the open channel and alteration of the CIPP design. The project was completed in advance of the hurricane season, on time, and below budget without further incident. Contracting Approach This unique project was composed of three distinct contracting approaches that resulted in a final design-build delivery. CDM was initially contracted to design the failing open channel and twin 72 inch culvert pipe system under the first approach of design-bid-build. This approach was already underway when the catastrophic failure of the twin 72 inch culvert pipes occurred in close proximity to a commercial structure occupied by Carpet N’ Drapes. Within the existing continuing service contract, Clay County immediately mobilized CDM to stabilize the structure and re establish flow through the culvert pipes. Local site and specialized contractors were managed and coordinated by CDM construction personnel, although they were directly contracted by the County with utilization of emergency contracts. Within days extensive stabilization and temporary culvert pipe work had secured the existing buildings and re established flow through the culvert pipe. The final contracting approach engaged CDM in an emergency design-build contract. This contract included completion of the remaining design portions from the original design-only contract, and incorporated the changed conditions that resulted from the collapse of the culvert pipes. Immediately upon the collapse and throughout the design-build contract, Clay County empowered CDM with single-point responsibility to achieve project goals. July 2009 FORM DD-6

    • CDM assisted the City of Boynton Beach with the development of a stormwater master plan, preparation of an EPA National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit application, design and construction of stormwater of facilities, and funding assistance. With CDM’s help, the City was able to meet a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) deadline of October 20, 2000 for completing Phase 1 of the stormwater improvements. CDM provided design, permitting, and bidding services for a downtown regional wet detention facility to provide retrofit treatment and attenuation of excess runoff from the City prior to discharge to the Intracoastal Waterway. The retrofit detention pond serves about 40 acres of tributary area in Basin 1 of the downtown watershed (east of U.S. 1). The project was completed on a fast-track schedule to coincide with ongoing downtown redevelopment efforts while proactively addressing water quality issues. The design services provided by CDM included the preparation of contract documents, construction plans, specifications, a construction cost estimate, and an annual operation and maintenance (O&M) cost estimate. CDM’s permitting services included the engineering required to obtain the necessary permits to construct the project including an Environmental Resource Permit (ERP). After CDM completed the design, the City put the project out to bid. Only one bid was received for $5.9 million, significantly higher than CDM’s initial $4.1 million cost estimate. The City requested revisions and a second estimate from CDM, and put the project out to bid again. Again, only one bid was received for $5.9 million, significantly higher than CDM’s cost estimate. Under an emergency declaration, the City negotiated a construction management-at-risk (CM-at-risk) contract with CDM for a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) of $4.9 million. CDM then managed the construction of the facilities. This included the excavation of a 15,000-square-foot stormwater detention pond, construction of a large gazebo in the center of the pond, construction of boardwalks and sidewalks around the pond, and landscaping. The team also installed several thousand feet of related stormwater pipelines, primarily 48-, 60-, and 72-inch concrete pipe. A 4-foot by 9-foot concrete box culvert carries stormwater from the city’s system to the pond. During the installation of the culvert, CDM worked 24 hours/day for seven days. The installation had to be handled with extreme care because of several live utility lines in the area. The culvert was installed beneath a 21-inch force main, 78-inch reinforced concrete pipe storm drain, and a 20-inch sewer pipeline – all live throughout the construction operation. Excavation of the pond often presented unexpected conditions. The construction site was in a historic section of Boynton Beach that was built before present-day “as-builts” became standard. As a result, the excavation team came upon several utility lines in unexpected places (some live, some abandoned). CDM’s attentive management throughout the project kept the project on track, despite the construction challenges. The project was completed below the county’s GMP and ahead of schedule.

    • Summary of Work: Mr. Mucha oversaw the removal of the Northwest Master Lift Station pump house and pumps and relocated to the new Master lift station location in the close proximity to existing plant. Mr. Mucha oversaw the installation of various size ductile iron pipe from 4-inch to 30-inch and various stringent tie-ins. To maintain plant operations they set up two temporary bi-pass pumps to pump around existing plant while the existing pumps were being removed and reset in new locations. Mr. Mucha also oversaw the concrete form work and placement of re-steel as well as the concrete placement of the new above ground storage tank slab on grade. He also oversaw the installation of the 1.0 mgd glass lined fusion storage tank and roof assembly. Mr. Mucha interacted with sub contractors safety meetings and weekly safety audits. There were no safety injuries reported and no loss time accidents. St. Johns County Utility Department requested CDM construct the lift station as part of the Design-Build agreement in accordance with the contract documents prepared by Tetra Tech for St. Johns County Utility Department The master lift station was constructed on the same site as the existing Northwest Water Treatment Plant, located between State Road 16 and Interstate 95 on International Golf Parkway (IGP), and replaced the existing lift station. The upgraded sewer master lift station is comprised of a 0.5 million gallon bolted steel storage tank to store raw sewage from the service area, primary and secondary concrete wet wells, relocation of the existing lift station pumps including all controls, piping, valve and appurtenances and all electrical and instrumentation as specified in the contract documents. The project is part of St. Johns County Utility Department’s on-going efforts to develop and improve services to this area of St. Johns County, which has experienced significant growth in recent years. The service area includes two large Development of Regional Impact: the Silverleaf Plantation and the World Golf Village. The Northwest Master Lift Station will direct flow to the St. Johns County Utility Department proposed Northwest Wastewater Treatment Plant. Construction for the Northwest Wastewater Treatment Plant is set to begin in 2010. In order to maximize the use of existing equipment and minimize the construction cost at these two facilities, SJCUD additionally directed CDM to relocate the emergency back-up generators from three different facilities (NW MLS, NW WTP, and SR 16 WWTF). The 300 Kw generator from SJCUD’s State Road 16 Wastewater Treatment Plant (facility number FLA 0043109) was relocated to the Northwest Master Lift Station to provide emergency power at this site. This 300 kW generator, manufactured by Cummins, is a 300 kW Standby Diesel Generator. The 1,500-gallon fuel tank located at the State Road 16 Wastewater Treatment Plant remained at the SR 16 WWTF. The 1,000- gallon fuel tank previously located at the Northwest Water Treatment Plant was relocated to the Northwest Master Lift Station site to provide emergency diesel power. CDM reviewed the design criteria for the generator and fuel tank and confirmed that the 300 kW generator had adequate capacity and provided permitting assistance for this effort. CDM provided construction management for the project. CDM also provided engineering services during construction as part of the construction of the upgraded sewer Master lift station near the County’s Northwest Water Treatment Plant, including permitting assistance. The design of the upgraded Northwest Master lift station was performed by Tetra Tech (Design Professional) under a direct contract to the St. Johns County Utility Department. CDM advised the St. Johns County Utility Department on any RFI or questions relating to design that arose during construction. July 2009 FORM DD-10

All of these individuals have worked on similar projects providing design services, permitting, construction, and cost estimating services. Sub-Consultants – Although CDM has all the capabilities in-house to provide all the required services, we have included TKW Consulting Engineers, Inc.; Barraco and Associates, Inc. and RKS Consulting Engineers, Inc. on our project design team to ensure the most responsive service to LCU. Each of our team members has been introduced to CDM’s unique integrated design-build approach and will work as true part- ners on this important project. CDM believes that it is in the best interest of Lee County that we manage the construction portion of the project in such a way that it allows the most qualified local contractors real opportunities to participate in this project. This includes working closely with LCU staff in developing break out bid packages and in pre-qualifying key local vendors and contractors that best meet the needs of the county. Due the current highly competitive and uncertain market in utility construction, CDM has chosen not to identify specific major contrac- tors at this time so that we may make vendor procurement that is most advantageous to LCU at the time of selection. However because of the critical importance of integration of system controls, we have identified BCI as the system integrator based on the important role BCI has played and continues to play for Lee County and CDM’s long-working relationship with BCI on other projects. LCU can rest assured that CDM as the project guarantor has the resources, technical expertise, bonding capacity, and corporate financial backing to effectively integrate the design and construction and manage all construction subcontracts to a timely completion meeting LCU’s expectations. Branch Offices – CDM’s Fort Myers office will be the office in which the engineering and design work, and all of the client coordination with LCU, will be performed. Our staff of 25 people has been providing service to clients in the Lee County area since 1983. Remotely located specialists may be employed to complete specific tasks for the Fort Myers-based project team to ensure that LCU is receiving the best technical assistance that CDM has to offer our clients. Although the CDM Fort Myers office can provide all services required under this contract, the office will be supported by CDM’s 240-person Orlando, Florida design-build center where CDM has made extremely valuable investment in a fully integrated 3D/4D design build center. LCU will benefit from this impressive facility and the additional resources provided by over 200 engineering and construction management employees within less than a three-hour drive from Lee County facilities, providing easy access for LCU staff to these resources. Having a fully-staffed local office responsible for this project reduces the risk of project delays, design deviations, and missed expectations. Having both design and construction service capabilities under one roof provides LCU with a significant benefit for these important projects. Team Members – A thorough discussion of our team members is presented in Section Form E-6-E-7 and E8-E12 of this submittal. July 2009 FORM E-3
    • FORM E-4 THROUGH FORM E-5 SKILL AND EXPERIENCE OF THE PROJECT TEAM Key Team Members – As the guarantor for the LCU project, CDM will have the single point of responsibility for all design, construction, startup, and operations, integrating our in-house design, construction, and operations personnel into a seamless team, while coordinating services of team members and subcontractors during project implementation. Project Management Approach – CDM’s project management approach is based on a simple but effective premise that has served our clients successfully since 1947: Use the vast experience resident within CDM for the client and provide affordable solutions that exceed the client’s objectives. CDM places great emphasis on continuous communications, establishing clear objectives and expectations between all parties at the outset of the project, and rigorous implementation of project management principles to control schedule, budget, and quality on every assignment. CDM has worked with clients throughout Florida on complex and challenging water projects, and, with each assignment, we have worked diligently to preserve the client’s best interests. Our record of accomplishment of performance in Florida has been exemplary. The design-builder must know not only how to produce a sound and innovative technical design, but also how to manage the project for smooth delivery without costly rework. CDM uses many efficient project management tools and methods to facilitate project delivery, but this is only part of the story. Probably more important is the strong desire of our Project Principal Paul Pinault, P.E. and Project Manager David J. Prah, P.E., BCEE to deliver a world-class RO facility to LCU. Mr. Prah recently completed the highly successful delivery of the Palm Beach County Lake Region WTP and the No. 3 WTP. Our project management approach for this project follows CDM’s detailed Project Management Plan. This document is a comprehensive management tool outlining our approach to all phases of the project. The core of our project management plan is CDM’s SMART (Safe Management of Assets, Resources, and ongoing Training of project personnel) Plan. This plan documents project goals, project schedule, safety activities, staffing and manpower, materials and subcontractors, tools and equipment, quality management practices, cost control, contract, and project administration activities. Our entire team will use a common schedule, document control, design, procurement, and quality control processes. The plant operational priorities will drive CDM design activities, which will in turn drive our material procurement and site staffing in accordance with the detailed CPM schedule. In addition, our project management plan will address the challenging issues of change management. Our project management team is well trained to manage change that could affect cost and/or schedule. Our experienced team programs in contingencies and/or schedule acceleration techniques for schedule or cost change management. Management Team – The heart of our project team is Mr. Pinault and Mr. Prah as the Project Principal and Project Manager, respectively. Mr. Pinault has valuable institutional knowledge of Lee County’s policies and procedures and is intimately familiar with LCU’s personnel and working methods. Mr. Pinault was carefully chosen as the single point of responsibility for LCU due to his trusted relationship with LCU staff, his background having managed several D-B projects, and his background as a Utility Director having managed many design, construction, and D-B projects where he had to keep many various stakeholder’s interests in mind – Board of Directors, engineering staff, operations staff, and the community at large. Mr. Prah brings to the project extensive water treatment experience, as well as significant South Florida membrane qualifications. These two staff members will be nearly inseparable during the course of the project: They will coordinate with each other and with other project staff on a continuing basis. Perhaps more important than any carefully drawn organization chart is the attitude that Mr. Pinault and Mr. Prah bring to the project of being able to listen, their meticulous attention to detail, relentless coordination to make sure that design disciplines are working in concert with each other, and the ability to think through problems to arrive at solutions. Mr. Pinault will be the single point of contact for day-to-day coordination with LCU’s Project Manager and will be responsible for the project’s administrative, financial, and contractual matters. He will provide guidance and direction to the Project Manager in terms of the project budget, schedule, and overall project controls. Mr. Pinault will be directly responsible for providing support to LCU and will advise the Project Manager and task leaders of issues that are important to LCU and all participating stakeholders. As Project Manager, Mr. Prah will be responsible for the project’s technical matters. Mr. Prah will be responsible for coordinating all subconsultants. He will focus on critical design and construction issues and will facilitate project decisions. His role includes responsibility for the overall implementation of the project plan and implementing requests from the Project Principal. He will also anticipate, identify, and address issues that could cause delays or increase project costs. He will be responsible for implementing the QA/QC program and dedicating adequate resources to the project. The Project Engineer Donald M. Thompson, Ph.D., P.E. and Construction Manager Dennis A. Mucha will be responsible for technical and construction management of the project. They will be responsible for coordinating the internal team of discipline leads from both CDM and from our subconsultants, and after GMP negotiation, our subcontractors. They will guide the discipline leads in developing and implementing engineering concepts with significant input from the QA/QC Review Team, coordinate and review all deliverables, and provide day-to-day coordination with the Project Principal and Project Manager to ensure that the project goals and vision are met. They will also assist in presenting technical work at meetings and documenting action items and decisions. Communication Protocols – The entire management team will be readily accessible to LCU from the CDM Fort Myers office. Coordination with our 3D/4D Design-Build Center in Orlando will occur through net meetings and periodic travel to assist with design and construction coordination activities and thorough implementation of our QA/QC plan. Coordination and communication of the many technical, July 2009 FORM E-4
    • FORM E-4 THROUGH FORM E-5 SKILL AND EXPERIENCE OF THE PROJECT TEAM contractual, and operational issues will be necessary to successfully complete the North Lee County WTP Expansion Project. CDM’s local management team will allow the close, rapid communications required to properly manage and execute this important project. The first essential element of our project management approach focuses on protocols for effective communications. This communications plan defines the preferred modes of communication for all of the various parties involved in the project. Our project team recognizes the diverse makeup of the stakeholders who must be kept informed during the progress of the project. These stakeholders consist of representatives of LCU, regulatory agencies, federal agencies, subcontractors, vendors, and the utility customers. We will tailor our communications protocol for this project to ensure that information exchange occurs by the preferred method and frequency for each of the interested parties. At a minimum, we will identify the prime contact with each entity involved in the project. We will also define methods of communication (telephone calls, e-mail, project website, and paper copy correspondence) to be utilized during the course of the project. Furthermore, the frequency of communications will also be established for each of the parties, particularly stressing the nature of communication with LCU and within the project team. CDM will work with LCU to determine principal points of contact for the project. Project communications with LCU will primarily be through Mr. Pinault. The reporting hierarchy for the project for CDM staff and sub-consultants will be established to funnel all critical communications, regardless of transmittal directions (i.e., LCU to CDM or CMD to LDU) through Mr. Pinault. He will act as the gate keeper for the project, creating a consistent, all-inclusive knowledge center within the project team. Communications will be prompt and thorough. In addition, the project team will utilize project meetings on a weekly and monthly basis for various aspects of the project delivery. Progress will also be documented in monthly progress reports that detail design and construction progress, provide materials and cost information, address select technical matters, document the project safety record, and provide a briefing on specific achievements and activities to be completed in the upcoming three months. Additionally, CDM will establish a secure interactive project documentation system, or eRoom, for the project team of LCU, CDM, our subconsultants, and subcontractors, allowing all project participants real-time access to all documents generated throughout project execution for schedule, budget, document control, design, procurement, and quality control processes. Quality Assurance/Quality Control – Our project team will utilize CDM’s well-established procedures for quality management. CDM has codified our own QA/QC requirements in a Quality Management Procedures Manual for design-build projects. QMP-4 was developed based on CDM’s extensive experience as an engineer-led design-build firm, and will be uniformly and consistently applied to the work of all subconsultants and subcontractors on the project team. The foundation of all CDM’s QM programs is “exceeding our clients’ expectation,” as outlined in the DCP. To make sure deliverables are complete and meet LCU requirements, we will perform independent quality reviews of all deliverables on a bi-weekly basis during design execution and prior to their submittal. Our team includes Charles J. Voss, P.E., BCEE – Design & Drawings; Kenneth A. Klinko, P.E. – Water Process; Trudi Williams, P.E – Permitting; and Bruce G. Duff, PMP – Constructability to assist the project management team in implementing and overseeing the QA/QC program and facilitating team compliance with all QA/QC procedures. Quality management is addressed in the following ways. The quality management plan requires that key project team members stay involved in the project from design through procurement, construction, and startup. During the design of the North Lee County WTP expansion. CDM’s construction professionals and operations and maintenance specialists will work with the design engineers and have input to ensure that designs are constructible, that the designed facilities can be constructed within budget, and that facilities can be operated and maintained efficiently. Throughout the entire construction phase, our design engineers work closely with our construction professionals to ensure that equipment meets the design specification and that the design intent is achieved. Also, during procurement, operations and maintenance specialists work with the construction professionals to review submittals and startup plans submitted by subcontractors. During construction, CDM’s design engineers stay involved and ensure implementation of the design intent by attending progress meetings, reviewing submittals, and answering questions of the construction professionals. Additionally, CDM’s design engineers will make site visits as required to review the work and coordinate with the CDM site manager to expedite and direct the field crews as required to meet the design intent. Non-conformances with quality standards are resolved systematically using a structured methodology. Prior to startup, CDM’s operations and maintenance specialists will review all startup protocols and will work with LCU operations staff to ensure that the LCU staff is properly trained and ready for the startup. CDM’s operations and maintenance specialists will then work alongside the LCU operations staff to provide technical startup advice as the facility is commissioned. CDM’s fully integrated team of design professionals, construction professionals, and operations and maintenance specialists, all under one roof, assures LCU that the design intent and LCU expectations are understood and implemented during every phase of the project. Our approach provides LCU additional assurance that expectations for project quality are being met. An independent peer review team monitors progress on the project design activities. Our project team will interact with senior level professionals with extensive relevant experience but who are not directly involved in the day-to-day activities. This review team provides objective review and evaluation of the work, considering important factors such as the adequacy and soundness of conclusions; appropriate application of existing and new technology, and use of sound, practical engineering practices and value-based solutions to project challenges. July 2009 FORM E-5
    • FORM E-6 THROUGH FORM E-7 SKILL AND EXPERIENCE OF THE PROJECT TEAM CDM’s organizational structure for the project (Figure E1) reflects our capabilities as a leading D-B contractor in the water infrastructure market. In our role as prime contractor, we have all of the key personnel necessary to effectively manage and administer the contract. For D-B projects such as the LCU project, CDM establishes a Design-Construction Management Team. CDM has an established protocol for D-B projects documented in Quality Management Process (QMP) Manual 4 which outlines specific personnel roles and responsibilities. CDM’s established D-B procedures call for a specific organization and responsibilities to implement these projects. We fully integrate our design and construction staff throughout all phases of a project, beginning with the early design development, where personnel who have been assigned to work on the project communicate and work together under the direction of CDM’s Project Manager. The interaction continues into the project kickoff and then through each subsequent phase of the field execution all the way to closeout. By organizationally integrating the team from the beginning, CDM is able to leverage the experience and specialty knowledge of both our design and construction staff, as well as promote the development of innovative ideas that can streamline projects and reduce costs and/or schedule. Team Members – Project Manager David J. Prah, P.E., BCEE understands LCU’s project objectives and overall schedule. He understands all aspects of water facilities design and construction and has proven capabilities to coordinate with the various design and construction disciplines in a fully integrated team. He will lay the managerial control ground work at the beginning of the project to prevent cost overruns, maintain the schedule, and see that the work is meeting QA/QC requirements. As part of the Palm Beach County Water Treatment Plant projects, Mr. Prah worked very efficiently with Palm Beach County’s Engineering Department, CDM’s design team, subconsultants, and the construction team to make sure the projects were completed within the time frame. With a proven track record, Mr. Prah will bring valuable experience to LCU to work with LCU’s staff to ensure the best interests of the County are protected. Together with Project Principal Paul Pinault, P.E., Project Engineer Donald M. Thompson, Ph.D., P.E., and Construction Manager Dennis A. Mucha, the core local CDM team will work diligently and efficiently with other CDMers to keep this project a top priority to ensure all project elements are designed, permitted, and constructed within LCU’s timeframe. Other CDM experts—namely Curtis A. Kiefer, P.E., BCEE; Colin M. Hobbs, Ph.D., P.E.; Charles J. Voss, P.E., BCEE; Trudi Williams, P.E.; and Kenneth A. Klinko, P.E., recognized as leaders in their respective fields–will assist the core CDM team with valuable technical input, permitting assistance, and design and construction support. Project Organizational Chart – Due to the importance of this project for Lee County, CDM has selected Mr. Pinault as our Project Principal. Due to Mr. Pinault’s great working relationship with County staff and background as a Utility Manager, in which function he oversaw many D- B, conventional design, and construction projects, he is the perfect client liaison and advocate for all levels of the County, ensuring that overall satisfaction is not only achieved but exceeded for this important project. The CDM Fort Myers office will serve LCU with Mr. Pinault as your primary contact for administrative requirements and Mr. Prah for all technical aspects of the projects. From our Florida-based staff, CDM has assembled a project team that includes locally-based staff and nationally recognized experts who can serve LCU from our Fort Myers office. We understand the great importance of this project to the County and, to support the project, our team includes experts in all key areas of this project while providing local project management and leadership. As an integrated, in-house team, all of the critical project roles—during both design and construction management phases—will be filled by CDM professionals. While CDM is in control of all aspects of the project design, construction, and startup, we have worked hard to strike a balance and provide meaningful opportunities for our local partners—TKW, Barraco, and RKS Engineering. CDM has teamed with each of these firms on numerous past projects and has developed a good working relationship with each. This plan provides team continuity, improves the efficiency of project implementation, simplifies project administration for LCU, eliminates engineer/contractor conflicts, and, most importantly, puts CDM in control of its schedule and overall quality of materials and workmanship. Innovative and cost-saving ideas and schedule efficiencies will be realized by involving key construction and operations personnel in design and key design personnel in construction and operations, and collaborating with LCU each step along the way. One of CDM’s strengths is our team’s experience working on similar projects together. Their experience working on local projects together means they are familiar not only with the D-B process, but also with their individual roles in the process; this leads to smoother execution, with all team members working together toward the common end goal. As the project organizational chart (Figure E 1) demonstrates, the CDM team is organized around simple, efficient lines of communication. The proposed project team members that we have assembled represent professionals with substantial expertise and experience and meet all of the criteria for inclusion and presentation as a part of this project team. Resumes for all team members are included in the back of this submittal. The structure and staffing of the project team are based on the premise that the most important asset a D-B firm brings to a project is a professional staff with the expertise to understand a client’s needs and plans thoroughly, produce designs to implement those plans with constructible and operable facilities, and manage the project efficiently from predesign through construction to startup and transfer to the owner. Our proposed project team is composed of several parts that will work closely together and with LCU staff to design, construct, and implement the project in a coordinated manner. The main components of the team are project leadership, a QA/QC Review Team, two major task groups (each with a task leader and additional staff), and project subconsultants that will serve during both the design and construction phases.

    • FORM E-8 THROUGH FORM E-12 SKILL AND EXPERIENCE OF THE PROJECT TEAM CDM, the Design-Build Firm – Of direct relevance to this project is the fact that CDM has completed more than 1,000 alternative delivery construction projects, with over 30 in Florida alone. Unlike other teams that may represent short-term arrangements between consultants and contractors that last for just a single project, CDM is a truly integrated D-B firm. Our engineers, technicians, and construction managers are all CDM employees. CDM’s unified D-B approach provides you the full value of engineer-led D-B, including a completely integrated engineering- construction effort, full attention to project technical issues, and a true single-source point of contact and responsibility. It eliminates the potential for adversarial situations that can occur on projects when problems arise in contractor-engineer prime-sub relationships. As the proponent for the D-B services, CDM will have the single point of responsibility for all design, construction, startup, and operations, integrating our in-house design, construction, and operations personnel into a seamless team, while coordinating services of team members and sub- contractors during the project implementation. Delivering complete solutions using D-B or alternative delivery approaches that complement our traditional design capabilities have become a core service offering to our clients, representing over $1 billion in revenues since 2004. CDM holds the appropriate general contractor’s licenses, surety bonding, and insurance required to execute D-B, DBO, and construction projects in the State of Florida. As a Design-Builder and operator and general contractor, CDM takes singular responsibility for all aspects of project delivery from initial concept development through design, construction, commissioning, and O&M, using the depth of the firm’s resources in planning, design, and construction.. A rigorous health and safety program helps ensure that our projects are completed accident-free. In Florida, CDM’s D-B experience includes projects such as two WTP expansions for the Orlando Utilities Commission, the St. Johns County WTP D-B, the South Water Reclamation Facility (SWRF) Phase IVA and IVB for Orange County; and Water and Wastewater D-B projects at the Everglades National Park. CDM also teamed with Veolia for the DBO of the Tampa Bay Water Regional Surface WTP and the current expansion to bring the plant to 120 mgd. CDM is the design team member. For Orange County Florida alone, CDM has completed design build projects , totaling over $60 million. Combining abundant in-house expertise in treatment technologies with a proven ability to manage major civil works programs, CDM has built a record of success in the design and construction of WTPs. CDM has completed studies, planning, permitting, design, and construction services for similar facilities, including the recent CDM D-B of an 8-mgd LPRO Membrane Water Treatment Plant for St. Johns County, CDM’s design of the 2005 FICE Grand Award winning Glades Road 40 mgd Nanofiltration Membrane WTP, and design and construction management of Palm Beach County’s 30 mgd membrane WTP No. 3. In 1992, CDM designed the first large municipal microfiltration system in the U.S., and, since that time, we have consistently played integral roles in design and construction services for small and large membrane facilities. CDM membrane experts are constantly helping to advance the development and use of membrane technology. Our top firm-wide membrane experts, such as proposed team members Dr. Don Thompson and Curtis A. Kiefer, P.E., BCEE, regularly lead membrane technology seminars. CDM’s expert designers and constructors provide the full range of design and construction services. Working under a variety of mechanisms, from traditional design- bid-build and program management, to construction management (CM) and CM-at-risk, D-B, DB-, and design-contract-build, we involve our construction professionals early in project planning and design to help our clients choose the right delivery method, while employing cost management and effective quality control. Last year, CDM performed over $275 million in construction, with our total construction revenue exceeding $1.3 billion over the past 15 years. Our construction professionals have delivered projects valued up to $150 million addressing the full range of our clients’ needs. Currently active construction projects and projects completed within the past five years total more than $882 million. To help design concepts come to fruition during construction and to keep projects within budget, CDM also provides construction management and resident engineering services. Our project representatives take a proactive role in identifying and resolving construction issues so that change orders and delays are minimized. CDM’s current WTP projects average less than 1 percent in change orders. Our bonding capacity of more than $200 million per project, and $750 million aggregate, demonstrates our financial strength. We have qualified for bid, payment, and performance bonds, as well as special warranty bonds. In addition to our surety bonding, we have comprehensive insurance coverage. South Florida Experience – CDM’s South Florida experience with both membrane treatment and RO is unmatched, with 245 mgd of membrane treatment capacity in operation, under construction, in design, or under study in the State of Florida. CDM is unquestionably among the membrane design leaders today, with experience designing more than 90 membrane/RO plants, 33 in Florida alone—the most of any firm. Some of CDM’s most recent and relevant WTP experience in South Florida includes: • Water and Wastewater Systems for Babcock Ranch • WTP No. 9 NF Facility, Palm Beach County – 27 mgd Community, Charlotte, and Lee Counties – 9.0 mgd RO • WTP NF No. 3 Expansion, Palm Beach County – 30 mgd • Lake Region LPRO WTP, Palm Beach County – 10 mgd • LPRO WTP, Clewiston – 3 mgd July 2009 FORM E-8

Our organization chart (Figure E1) shows our proposed key project team members and the roles they will undertake for this project. The team structure and organization fully capitalize on our team members’ specific experience relative to the project tasks – and provide LCU not only with individuals who have worked together successfully on previous membrane and other water treatment projects, but also the knowledge required to design and construct a facility such as LCU’s. Key Project Personnel – Qualifying Agent Bruce G. Duff, PMP – Mr. Duff, CDM’s certified General Contractor in the State of Florida, has more than 30 years of experience in the management and supervision of construction contracts, including water, wastewater, and industrial facilities, using the contract delivery methods of D-B, EPCM, CMAR, and design-bid-build. He recently served as CDM’s project manager for the City of Valdosta’s WTP project. He was responsible for all aspects of the project execution, including budget, schedule, quality, safety, and coordination of the work to minimize service interruptions at the operating plant. Mr. Duff also managed the performance of locally-procured subcontractors to ensure on-time completion within the GMP budget. He was also the Project Team Manager for the Arbennie Pritchett 3D/4D D-B WRF for Okaloosa County and WWTP Improvements for the Kingsport, TN $24M EPCM improvement project. Project Principal Paul Pinault, P.E. – The CDM project principal is a project director and corporate leader who negotiates contractual matters, provides support to the project manager, has the authority to commit the resources of the company, and is ultimately responsible for client satisfaction with CDM’s work. A further role is to maintain contact with the client and be an alternative avenue of communication with CDM about project status and performance, should that be desired. The Project Principal will be the main point of contact with LCU and is ultimately responsible for the administrative aspects of the work. Project Manager David Prah, P.E., BCEE – The success that CDM has achieved across the United States is built on the expertise and dedication of individual project managers. By utilizing a single-firm Design-Builder, the responsibility for the innovative and timely completion of the North Lee County WTP project rests with the CDM Project Manager. Therefore, it is imperative that this individual possesses the ability to manage the design and construction phases of the project. Mr. Prah, our Project Manager, has 24 years of design and construction, process design, and design-build experience, and he has managed and was the Engineer-of-Record for almost every WTP design effort CDM has performed in South Florida. Over the past seven years, Mr. Prah’s record exceeds a total capacity of 67 mgd of membrane plants in South Florida. His experience includes the Palm Beach County (PBC) WTP No. 9 27-mgd nanofiltration facility; the extensive renovation and upgrade of PBC WTP No. 3 to a 30-mgd nanofiltration facility; the facility improvements to PBC WTPs No. 2, 8, and 9; the No. 8 capacity rerating; and, recently, the PBC 10-mgd LPRO Lake Region WTP. Additionally, Mr. Prah has successfully delivered WTP improvement expansions for the City of Cocoa Beach, the City of Ormond Beach, and the Orlando Utilities Commission. Mr. Prah is recognized by clients as a very responsive, “hands on” manager, dedicated to addressing the smallest detail necessary for successful project delivery. Mr. Prah’s level of knowledge relating to water treatment facilities, as well as process, design, and construction preferences, is unmatched by anyone in Florida. Mr. Prah will provide technical direction, develop deliverables, manage subconsultants, and, most importantly, lead and guide the entire team to accomplish tasks with high quality, on time, and on budget. Project Engineer Donald M. Thompson, Ph.D., P.E. – CDM attracts the best people in the industry, supporting their efforts to learn and to grow. CDM’s design professionals span a variety of disciplines and the projects that they plan, design, build, and operate are as diverse as the needs of our clients. The design project team will be led by project engineer Dr. Thompson, a nationally recognized expert in membrane treatment, including RO, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, and microfiltration. Dr. Thompson brings significant Florida experience to this team from his recent work on the 30.5-mgd LPRO/NF WTP Project for Seacoast Utility Authority; the City of Tarpon Springs RO WTP D-B project; the Regional Surface WTP Expansion for Tampa Bay Water; and D-B services for improvements to the City of Valdosta’s WTP under a GMP. As the project engineer Dr. Thompson will lead the RO process design, structural, electrical, mechanical, and HVAC and plumbing and permitting efforts, as well as subconsultant team members. Construction Manager Dennis Mucha – Dennis Mucha has been selected to lead the construction effort of this project due to his specific and extensive experience in the design, bidding, and construction management of similar projects. Mr. Mucha has over 30 years of experience in the construction contracting industry, including over 15 years of field civil experience and mechanical supervisor experience. He has supervised projects up to $28 million in size and earned the Eagle Award of Excellence in 1998 from the Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. of Florida.

Project Subconsultants – CDM has enjoyed successful relationships with the consultants and firms who serve as subconsultants on this project. These successful relationships are the result of the ease with which CDM communicates with project team members and because of the confidence we have that we have chosen the right team for the project. Furthermore, not only do we boast a strong partnership with our subconsultants, but just as important is how we encourage the working relationships and communications between subconsultants on the team. For optimum results, CDM employs a dedicated teamwork philosophy that results in successful communication features, integrated work products, and long-term working relationships. CDM achieves sub-consultant and subcontractor integration through a combination of administrative and operational processes designed to encourage effective communication and integration within the overall project structure. In our organizational structure, the Project Engineer and Construction Manager are primarily responsible for managing the sub-consultants and subcontractor’s work, while our Project Manager ensures compliance with the contract terms and conditions through regular audits. While our Project Engineer and Construction Managers typically use reports available from our Management Information Systems to track information on progress, develop projections, and perform “what-if” analysis relating to potential problems or improvements, they also reinforce these with regular direct communication with sub-consultants and subcontractors using on-site reviews of work progress and performance. LCU representatives will be included in the review of sub-consultant and subcontractor performance. Our project team includes four local project subconsultants, well-established firms—outstanding experts in their fields—which were specifically selected to assist CDM.

    • FORM E-8 THROUGH FORM E-12 SKILL AND EXPERIENCE OF THE PROJECT TEAM Project Subcontractors – Piping Foreman, Electrical Foreman, and SCADA/PLC Programmer – CDM has the ability and experience to self perform most aspects of the required general construction work, including civil/site, concrete, small and large piping, process mechanical equipment installation, electrical, and instrumentation and controls. We have identified our Piping Foreman as Jeffery Mucha, our Electrical Foreman as Robert Accordino, and our SCADA/PLC Programmer as David Ubert, each of whom has extensive experience serving in the roles identified. However, inlieu of self performing the required work, CDM believes it is in the best interest of LCU and the local community if we explore management of the construction by breaking the design into small, well-defined bid packages, along with the option of self- performance of the construction where appropriate. Our Piping Foreman Jeffery Mucha; our Electrical Foreman Robert Accordino and our SCADA/PLC Programmer-David Ubert will oversee the implementation of these bid packages. There are several advantages to LCU in having CDM manage the construction. These include: • CDM management of construction allows for increased competition amongst subcontractors and vendors. This will allow LCU to benefit from current market conditions. CDM will prequalify all subcontractors, focus on local subcontractors, ensuring that their experience, qualifications, financial strength, and safety record align with CDM and LCU standards. This past year CDM has experienced subcontract prices much lower than in the recent past. However, a detailed pre-qualification must be performed in order to ensure, in addition to financial strength and experience, that the subcontractors have the resources to perform the work. • CDM will solicit a minimum of three bids for all aspects of the work, including subcontracts, engineered process equipment, and local material suppliers. CDM’s construction professionals will produce their own detailed estimate of the work for comparison to the bidder’s scope and pricing to ensure that the best value is being brought to the project. If the subcontract prices received are not in alignment with our own internal estimate, then we can look to self-perform the work in order to maintain the project budget. With these procedures, CDM’s Construction Manager can assure LCU that the work will be completed by a qualified subcontractor at the lowest competitive price and that the majority of all construction cost dollars remain in Lee County. • CDM will identify work opportunities that lend themselves to small and local businesses. This provides an opportunity to small and local businesses to contribute to the local economic development. They can gain experience that allows them to expand their business, while increasing company employment and experience. By utilizing small and local businesses on this project, more of the project budget will be spent in Lee County and surrounding communities. CDM also believes we have a fundamental responsibility to provide bidding and procurement opportunities for women- and minority-owned businesses. CDM has recent successful experience in breaking typical large procurement packages into smaller packages. This allows women- and minority-owned businesses to best meet the bonding, scheduling, and scope requirement. This allows the women- and minority-owned businesses to effectively participate in the bidding and procurement process. CDM’s local management of subcontractors reduces project mobilization costs as well as travel and subsistence expenses. These reduced costs will be realized by LCU. Perhaps one of the most important aspects of CDM’s approach is that LCU will have a single point of contact and responsibility – CDM. With either option – self-performing or the issuance of bid packages, or a combination thereof, CDM remains entirely responsible for all costs, schedule, safety, and performance of the work. Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Participation – CDM is not a DBE; however, CDM understands the County’s minority participa- tion goals and is committed to utilizing DBE firms in the execution of quality work. For this project, CDM has assembled an outstanding team that includes W/M/DBE TKW Consulting Engineers, Inc. CDM’s preference to manage design-build projects by breaking the construction into small bid packages, encourages DBE firms and local contractors’ participation. CDM’s procurement approach will meet your DBE requirements and maximize local subcontractor involvement, benefitting the local economy. CDM is frequently asked to ensure that the maximum amount of public money spent on public projects is returned to the local community, enhancing the economy of the surrounding area. CDM understands and supports this imperative, and has developed procurement strategies to satisfy these interests to the maximum extent practicable. CDM’s procurement team will review the capacity of potential local subcontractors in Lee County and plan a procurement strategy that breaks the overall scope of work into packages that can be successfully accomplished with the financial and labor resources of local contractors and suppliers. A similar approach was implemented by CDM for the City of Valdosta, where close to 70% of the total subcontract value was awarded to pre-qualified, local subcontractors. For the Integrated Design-Build Arbennie Pritchett Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) for Okaloosa County, FL CDM was selected to design, construct, outfit, startup, performance test, and obtain permits for the new WWTP, which will be designed to initially treat 10 mgd with flexibility for future expansion. There were no M/WBE requirements for this project, however, to overcome the scarcity of local labor and contractors skilled in the construction of process plants, CDM revised its construction staffing plan to augment its field supervisory team to provide mentoring and transfer industrial construction skills and technology to local firms who would otherwise have been assessed as marginally unqualified to perform the work. CDM has made an important investment in developing a truly integrated design-build center and a true 3D/4D design-build approach to projects like the North Lee ROWTP that has proven to be of tremendous benefit to our clients. A description of CDM’s design-build center, our 3D/4D capabilities, and instrumentation and control capabilities and resources can be found in Form FF – Special Equipment. July 2009 FORM E-12

    • Evidence of Successfully Meeting a Time Critical Project Schedule CDM has successfully managed and completed many time critical projects. We have provided descriptions below of two relevant projects of similar complexity where schedule is the critical factor. The first is the Okaloosa County Arbennie Pritchett Water Reclamation Facility and the second is the Haworth Water Treatment Plant. Okaloosa County Arbennie Pritchett Water Reclamation Facility, Okaloosa County, FL Okaloosa County Water and Sewer Department (OCWS) owns and operates the 6.5-million gallon per day (mgd) Garniers wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). However, due to the plant’s age, location, and operational performance, OCWS decided to construct a new WWTP. A key component is the construction of the $48,000,000 Arbennie Pritchett Water Reclamation Facility. CDM was selected to design, construct, outfit, start up, performance test, and obtain permits for the new WWTP based on its conceptual design and qualifications. The WWTP is designed to initially treat 10 mgd with flexibility for future expansion. Construction began in August 2007, with the new facility on schedule for project completion in September 2009. OCWS’s requirements to decommission the existing Garniers WWTP, provide new and better equipment, increase the service area, and enhance operations performance required a compressed design, permitting, procurement and construction schedule. Design - To accomplish these compressed schedule requirements, all design was scheduled to be completed in five months. CDM held monthly progress meetings with the Owner in Okaloosa County during design phase. The design was completed in three phases - early sitework, prestressed tank construction followed by the balance of design. Greatly enhancing the speed and efficiency of the design was incorporating 3D/4D technology. 4D design, which integrates a database into the 3D facility model, provides a consistent and lasting platform for efficient operations and maintenance. While the third dimension incorporates all disciplines – architectural, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, structural, and others – the fourth dimension uses an enterprise-level electronic document management system to include equipment data sheets and operations and maintenance (O&M) manuals. This 3D/4D design process enabled a compressed design schedule—just over five months—while at the same time allowing the Owner to see and understand the evolution of the design. The ability to see the facility in three dimensions facilitated real-time interactive decision-making by stakeholders assembled in a single location or connected by video conferencing. This significantly reduced the traditional time lag between design inspiration, approval and implementation and was key to the reduction of the design phase schedule. “We knew going with a design- build approach would streamline the process; however, the 3D and 4D elements that CDM has brought to the project have really taken the process to a new level. With each conversation we have or decision that needs to be made, we can see our new facility in real time,” said Jeff Littrell, Director of Okaloosa County Water & Sewer System. Permitting and Procurement – Permitting and procurement and was expedited by to meet the aggressive design schedule. The stormwater permit was approved in the second month following the Notice to Proceed (NTP). CDM also started purchasing long lead equipment before the end of the second month. Construction - The construction schedule was equally as aggressive. CDM held monthly progress meetings with the Owner through construction. The Construction team mobilized to site 60 days after NTP. Early site packages were completed one month from the NTP including: • Site clearing and grubbing • Demolition • Backbone stormwater management system • Temporary roads • Temporary utilities • Erosion control • Site fencing. CDM considered innovative construction means and methods that could reduce time, and decided to construct all major water retaining structures through prestressed construction, rather than traditional cast-in-place construction using formwork. This reduced the construction period by six weeks, principally because formwork did not have to be procured, a significant contribution to accomplishing the time-critical schedule. The prestressing subcontractor was able to mobilize to the site and start construction within a month of CDM’s decision. The balance of job (mechanical, building, electrical, concrete) was then subcontracted in the next six months and was all completed before 11 months from the initial NTP. CDM then self performed the I&C and systems integration and CDM built all the major electrical cabinets in our California shop. The project is currently in the start-up phase and is on schedule and under budget. Jeff Littrell, director of Okaloosa county Water & Sewer, recently wrote to the Okaloosa County Board of County Commissioners “CDM has
    • maintained its commitment to partnership through construction, and has been responsive to our needs. Today the project remains, as it has since the design began, on budget and on schedule” Haworth Water Treatment Plant, Haworth, NJ United Water New Jersey (UWNJ) is a privately-owned water utility that provides service to about 800,000 residents in 60 municipalities in Northern New Jersey. UWNJ owns and operates the water system which includes the Haworth WTP and the Oradell Reservoir which is the raw water source for the Haworth WTP. The Oradell Reservoir is the primary raw water source with 3.5 billion gallons of storage capacity The Haworth WTP was originally constructed in 1964 as a conventional water treatment plant with a rated capacity of 50 mgd. In 1989, the Haworth WTP was upgraded with ozone and expanded as a direct filtration plant to a capacity of 160 mgd. The treatment process includes pH adjustment, coagulation, ozonation, filtration, chlorine disinfection and chloramination and has a current reliable process capacity of 165 mgd. Since the Haworth WTP was upgraded and expanded in 1989 to include pre-ozonation and direct filtration, the requirements for drinking water quality have become more stringent. There were major changes to current regulations in New Jersey and other changes to the Safe Water Drinking Act were also anticipated. In addition, raw water quality deterioration and equipment age had made operations more difficult. A non-compliant event resulting from an extreme storm’s impact on raw water quality required a boil water order to be imposed on UWNJ’s 800,000 customers. The possibility of another event of similar magnitude in the future placed the plant at elevated risk of failure in providing customers with the expected level of service. As a result, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) mandated and will enforce a new discharge permit by October 2009. The mandated discharge permit, two years from the onset of this design-build project, made schedule adherence and completion critical to the success of the project. CDM produced a project schedule that was complete, achievable, and accomplishes the objectives and stipulated milestones in the NJDEP mandate. The project requirements are challenging, particularly as they relate to the stipulated milestones and NJDEP mandate. It demands a focused and concerted effort of the entire project team, CDM in team collaboration with UWNJ, the regulatory agencies and officials, and our subcontractors, suppliers and other direct project participants. The two most important factors to a time critical project are the schedule development and the schedule adherence. CDM’s project schedule developed for the North Lee County WTP Expansion Project will be fast-tracked through achievement of Substantial and Final Completion. CDM will provide a schedule that is timely and expedient but also provides sufficient flexibility and comfort as to not impose inordinate demands or requirements on the project team, including your plant operating personnel or the regulatory agencies. Responsibility for schedule adherence will be assigned to a Schedule Controller. Regular updates and analysis will be used to keep the project team informed and to take appropriate actions to maintain the project progress as originally planned. Activities will be assigned by phase and entities to maintain team members’ focus. CDM will manage the project float to best utilize the labor force to manage the critical path of the schedule. Schedule reporting and analysis will be done in Primavera software. CDM will monitor and update the project schedule on a weekly basis. Trend reports showing deviations from the original schedule will be produced and provided to CDM’s Project Manager and Lee County Utilities (LCU). Project engineering, procurement and construction progress variance reports will be prepared and will be reviewed by the Project Manager, the Design Manager and the Construction Manager. The following activities expedited in the Haworth WTP Upgrade project schedule will be included in the North Lee County WTP Expansion Project: Project Management - Project management activities will start immediately upon the contract award and the NTP. These activities include the overall coordination and delivery of all of CDM’s services, as well as provide CDM’s other direct supervisory, planning, reporting and recordkeeping. CDM’s project management activities will extend, of course, throughout the project until completion is achieved. Design Development - Concurrently, CDM will advance the preliminary design with a focus on enabling permits, early procurements, and ultimately, construction and commissioning of the expanded facilities. CDM’s engineering and design teams will continue their work and services without interruption until completion of the final design of the upgraded facilities. The portions of the design relating to the critical, early construction activities will be completed sooner, on an as-needed basis. All of CDM’s engineering and design activities will completed in close communication, review, and approval of LCU. If requested, design submittals will be prepared and reviewed with LCU. CDM will schedule and work closely with LCU to assure the reviews are achieved, the engineering and design of the upgraded facilities is not compromised, and the critical construction activities are not delayed. Our initial permitting activities include preparation and submission of permit applications and follow-up actions until the permits have been secured and issued. CDM will monitor and report on compliance of any
    • permit conditions and requirements. While CDM does not have ultimate control over the issuance of the permits, we do not envision, base on past experience of similar situations, any delay of significance. Pre-Construction Services - CDM’s construction professionals will provide value engineering and constructability review input to the design team. Value engineering by the team and permitting activities will begin with a kick-off meeting with LCU, followed by meetings with the regulatory agencies and officials. This will be a continuous process throughout the design of the upgraded facilities and will not delay the progress or completion of the design development or permitting activities. CDM will identify critical construction activities and develop a Maintenance of Plant Operations (MOPO) plan in collaboration with LCU operations staff which will ensure that construction activities minimally impact existing facility operations. Construction - Construction will begin with expedited establishment of our on-site project office and other on-site activities needed to support the fast-tracked schedule. CDM will also conduct early procurement activities for early construction subcontract work packages and early equipment bid packages. Our construction team will manage and supervise the schedule of all of our subcontractors, suppliers, and other vendors, as well as on-site safety and quality control. Our startup and commissioning team includes licensed water treatment operators. They will have input to the design and will begin with the planning and preparation of operator training; O&M manual development, testing, and commissioning services early in the construction to assure that our construction activities, as well any of our other on-site activities, do not interfere, disrupt or compromise on-going plant operations. Our commissioning services begin during the design phase and extend through final acceptance testing.

Project Manager, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Upgrade, Virginia Beach, VA, 2008. Mr. Wendt was responsible for managing the SCADA system preliminary design for Virginia Beach, Virginia. The existing water SCADA system (1980) and the wastewater SCADA (1998) system were implemented with different hardware and software. While still functional, these technologies were becoming obsolete. CDM conducted a preliminary design study to upgrade and combine the city’s water, wastewater, and Lake Gaston into a common SCADA system using current technologies. Using a workshop approach, the city and CDM were able to reach consensus quickly. During our field investigations, an analysis of the existing systems determined that the city could reuse the existing field Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) and radio communications equipment. This allowed the city to leverage its capital investment by prolonging the useful life of a significant portion of the SCADA system. Another recommendation was to use common hardware and software platforms for all three systems to provide the operations staff with a single human-machine interface (HMI) system. This lowered the city’s training and operational costs. Project Engineer, Radio Communication System Diagnostic Report, Detroit, MI, 2006. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) procured and installed a wholesale automatic meter reading system (AMR) based on the UtiliNet spread spectrum radio technology. Over time, the system was increased to over 1,200 radios to expand DWSD capabilities to monitor and control key components of the city’s water and sewer systems. The system consists of a network of meter reading remote telemetry units (RTUs) and repeater radios installed in a grid-like fashion with multiple head-end radios to receive the transmitted information at several sites. During the last expansion, several radio performance anomalies were noted, and communications through the radios were unreliable or non-existent. To resolve this issue, DATA.NET formed a task force consisting of CDM, ANG, EDS, and R-Tech. The task force investigated all of the radios on the system but primarily focused on the PC-713 radios and repeater radios (backbone system). After analyzing radio diagnostic data, it became clear that minor changes to a few specific sites would significantly improve message delivery time and eliminate lost data. Since recommendations were implemented immediately, the report detailed the improvements achieved as the project team completed the priority action items.

    • FORM F PROJECT SCOPE AND APPROACH Form F-1 through Form F-7 a. The Project Team’s approach and understanding in establishing a collaborative working partnership with the Owner. The process selection, design, and construction process for public utility projects has changed dramatically over the years. In the current climate, the client demands meaningful participation in the process selection and design of the facilities, the construction arm wants significant participation in the design review process, all parties want greater oversight over the construction process to minimize schedule delays and change orders, and the public wants their safety and property values protected,. While consensus building is important in all projects, it is mandatory in a process that will modify existing facilities and potentially impact operations. Dictatorial attitudes or failure to collaborate by any party to the process will, at a minimum, delay and complicate the project or, at worst, result in a deadlocked process with the great possibility of runaway costs and the threat of litigation. Early in the project cycle, CDM would propose a workshop program to facilitate timely, informed communication and decisions with LCU on critical project issues. This approach will streamline the technical decision-making involved in design development. We propose to review results of investigations, discuss technical issues, and make decisions with LCU in a series of focused workshops. In these workshops, our team, which consists of CDM staff and several local subconsultants (TKW, Barraco, RKS, and BCI), will take the responsibility for presenting material in a concise, prioritized manner. LCU will be able to focus on those critical issues and decisions that have a key impact on shaping the project, while avoiding lengthy review and comment periods. Workshops will be sequenced to support the project decision-making and design development schedule. This process would initiate with an initial stakeholder partnering meeting to “vest” stakeholders in the project. This Workshop will establish the “rules of the road” and the specific technical, administrative, political, and financial goals. The initial technical workshops will be geared towards confirming project objectives and constraints, discussing LCU staff design and equipment preferences, and focusing on critical technical decisions and tangible asset influences such as redundancy and reliability. Later workshops will provide opportunities to receive LCU comments on the developing design and the effects that it has on the project cost. Typically design review workshops would occur at the 15, 30, 60, and 90 percent completion stage phases of the project design. In addition constructability reviews, project cost reviews and schedule impacts would occur at the 60 and 90 percent completion stage as further discussed in this Form F. The workshop approach will allow the design period to move much faster than the traditional approach, while still affording LCU control over both the technical and project decisions made and the development of the final design. CDM will develop the design in 3D. Our design workshops will include discussions revolving around model views in addition to review of 2D drawings. In using 3D models, CDM has found that stakeholders get a better visualization of the form of the job in less time, and have more meaningful input to the design. We also strongly encourage LCU operations and maintenance staff to participate in all design workshops. When the design has been advanced to a point that LCU and CDM are comfortable with the form and function of the job, and the design elements have been developed to a point agreeable to both parties, CDM will develop a GMP proposal to deliver the construction and commissioning of the new facilities. The proposal will include a detailed breakdown of all costs and contingencies. LCU and CDM will then negotiate the GMP and execute a contract for CDM to deliver the construction and commissioning at a GMP. The negotiations will address disposition of funds remaining if the project is completed under the GMP. CDM as prime will carry all risk for any project costs over the GMP. CDM will maintain an open book on all subcontracts and project costs, which may be viewed by LCU at any time. Once in construction the level of collaboration between CDM and LCU would need to increase in frequency and depth of conversation to address the myriad of day-to-day issues that arise when performing construction at an active, working water treatment facility. It would be expected that daily meetings would occur with the CDM Construction Superintendent, the North Lee County RO WTP Chief Operator, and LCU’s Construction Administrator at a minimum. Regular, periodic meetings with the design and construction teams throughout the procurement and construction will be initiated by the CDM Project Manager. These meetings will be used to communicate construction and design change issues; address alternatives in material, equipment, and layout; update status of schedule and cost estimates; as well as local labor status; and any other issues or barriers to success for the project. As major equipment items are placed and startup/calibration activities occur as well as when construction nears completion, operations staff would be strongly encouraged to attend these activities to smooth turnover of operations. The most essential element of our collaborative working partnership approach would also focus on protocols for effective communications, in particular between the designated LCU Representative and the CDM Team’s management. This communications plan defines the preferred modes of communication for all of the various parties involved in the project. Our project team recognizes the diverse makeup of the stakeholders who must be kept informed during the progress of the project. These stakeholders consist of representatives of LCU, the July 2009 FORM F-1
    • Lee County Commission, regulatory agencies; any affected surrounding community, and the utility customers. However, the most vital link is the direct communications between the representative management staffs of the two prime entities, Lee County and CDM staff. We will tailor our communications protocol for this project to ensure that information exchange occurs by the preferred method and frequency for each of the interested parties in addition to the Workshop approach described above. At a minimum, we will identify the prime contact with each entity involved in the project. We will also define methods of communication (telephone calls, e-mail, project website, paper copy correspondence, etc.) to be utilized during the course of the project. Furthermore, the frequency of communications will also be established for each of the parties, particularly stressing the nature of communication with LCU and within the project team. CDM will work with LCU to determine principal points of contact for the project. Project communications with LCU will be through Paul Pinault, the Project Principal. Mr. Pinault was employed in the public sector for over 30 years, prior to joining CDM. During that time he also ran one of the largest utilities in New England and is keenly aware of the need for good open communications between the client and their consultant in order to have a successful project. All communications must be prompt and thorough. Mr. Pinault, located within minutes of LCU, can respond to any LCU request for face-to-face meetings within an hour or so. In addition, CDM will utilize project meetings on a bi- weekly and monthly basis for various aspects of the project delivery. Progress will also be documented in monthly progress reports that detail design and construction progress, provide materials and cost information, address select technical matters, document the project safety record, and provide a briefing on specific achievements and activities to be completed in the upcoming month and three month timeframes. In addition, these reports will confirm schedule, and that all project concerns are being addressed. The reports will also include a confirmation that each design activity has been reviewed for possible cost savings and quality enhancement. b. The Project Team’s understanding of the project, approach to successful completion, specialized skills needed, special considerations and possible difficulties in completing the project. The North Lee County RO WTP was originally designed to produce 5 mgd of LPRO permeate using two RO trains. In addition, it was originally planned to use 1.0 mgd of raw water blending for a total finished water production capacity of 6 mgd. Due to unexpectedly high chloride concentrations in the raw water supply, the facility can only produce approximately 3.35 mgd. In addition, the facility has decreased the product water recovery rate from 80% to 75%. This situation has resulted in the need to operate all three feed water pumps under the current scenario. Membrane operation has also suffered from strontium sulfate scaling with the need to replace membranes after a less than successful cleaning attempt. To meet system-wide demand that is made more difficult to meet when the Olga WTP is constrained by algal blooms and high TDS levels in the surface water source, LCU desires to expand the North Lee County RO WTP to a RO permeate capacity of 10 mgd. Considerations for this expansion include: • A potentially undersized raw water line entering the plant. Specifically, this 16-inch diameter line would result in a 14.8 feet per second flow rate at 10 mgd permeate production and a 75% recovery rate. This flow value is at the upper range of allowable flow rates for stainless steel. • Need to significantly increase feedwater pump motor size including an analysis of the degree that raw water could further degrade and subsequent increases in feedwater pressure. For similar projects in Southwest and Southeast Florida, CDM typically assumes a 50% degradation factor. • Changing the interstage booster pumps from constant speed motors to VFD motors to (1) provide better flux control in the two stages and (2) decrease feedwater pump discharge pressure. • Potential need to upsize the Electrical Room to accommodate the higher motor horsepower demands and to accommodate the new VFDs for the interstage booster pump. • Relocation of the acid injection point from the pre-treatment system to the total permeate line to (1) eliminate the strontium sulfate scaling problem and (2) greatly reduce acid consumption due to the relatively low alkalinity in the permeate water. • Adding new membrane skids into areas that are very tight and may present conflicts with the current trenching system. • Need to upsize certain chemical metering pumps Successful completion of the project will require that the following action be taken in an expedited manner: • Re-visit the raw water quality data trends and compare to near-by well fields for further potential degradation. Possibly, perform additional groundwater modeling to achieve a conservative estimate of final degradation factor. • Assess the new electrical demands and determine the need to expand the Electrical Room. • Assess the engineering and economic case for installing energy recovery devices using any available residual concentrate pressure. • Assess the ability to add pressure vessels and membrane elements to the existing skids. The current “gap” between the first and second stage skids could allow additional stalks to each skid. Also assess the ability to add pressure vessels to the top of each skid. This approach would allow some immediate additional capacity and perhaps only require the construction of one additional July 2009 FORM F-2
    • membrane skid. • Strongly consider an alternative membrane skid design that is more traditional in the layout of the skid but also uses a multiported design approach to expedite manufacturing and minimize cost. • Determine the need to replace the current raw water line with subsequent need for temporary raw water piping and new chemical feed lines. The above actions will require that an initial working group of LCU operations staff, process specialists, electrical and mechanical engineers, and construction personnel be formed at, or even before, the initial Kickoff Meeting to expedite these fundamental decisions. In particular, a Membrane Systems Supplier would be included on this working group to provide expert advice on the available methods to (1) expand an existing skid and/or (2) optimize the design of a new skid membrane skid. The selected personnel must have actual, hands-on experience in the design, construction, and operation of multiple RO or nanofiltration facilities. c. The Project Team’s approach to meet the project schedule. Our philosophy in safely delivering a D-B project with complexities and tight milestones is to: • Listen to the needs and issues of our client and the project’s regulatory requirements • Build upon our understanding of the project goals through a logical and well thought-out design layout • Deliver the project to meet milestones through a sequenced approach created to minimize operational impact. Part of the continual development of the project team is the creation of the project schedule that meets or exceeds all of the project objectives and milestones. Earlier we noted the importance of developing a partnership of trust with all of the project stakeholders. An emphasis was placed on the need for clear lines of open communication. These two critical elements of a successful project, trust and communication, work together to provide the roadmap of a successful project in the development of the project schedule. To develop a full understanding of permitting requirements, CDM will meet with regulatory agencies to review required permits, submission requirements, and approval checklists. This will allow CDM to provide them with what is needed to fulfill their duties and obligations, and at the same time, provide for a timely issuance of permits. Together with LCU, our proposed permitting program will be efficient, effective and achieve the needed results for the project. The project schedule for LCU will be focused, fast-tracked and will achieve the plant upgrade and expansion within the constraints of the project so that the upgraded plant is on line by March 2011. The schedule, and its accompanying maintenance of plant operations (MOPO) plan, developed together with the LCU plant and operations staff, will achieve the desired results. The schedule and MOPO plan will provide safeguards and a program that is not at risk of causing interferences or disruption of your on-going operations of the plant. It will not compromise the strict need to maintain high standards of water quality and drinking water at all times during the course of the project. CDM is confident that our proposed approach to developing project schedules will serve LCU and your project well, and we will continue to update and improve upon the schedule whenever an opportunity arises. As noted herein, we are offering a seasoned team of both design and construction professionals that can and will deliver the project on time and within the schedule. d. The Project Team’s approach to facilitating the permitting process, utility and agency coordination, and Quality Control/Quality Assurance CDM will prepare applications for permits as may be required and related to the Contract. As part of the CDM team, TKW, a well known local firm, will coordinate the permitting effort. TKW has established a solid relationship with the local permitting agencies and Trudi Williams, P.E., will be the permitting liaison for the project. Her experience and exposure as SFWMD Chair, coupled with more than two decades of high-level permitting agency negotiation experience, makes her a valuable asset to the project for all levels of permitting. Permit-related work shall include furnishing required data, drawings, and other information requested and assisting LCU in obtaining required permit approvals. TKW will submit permit applications to LCU for review and meet with LCU, as required to discuss LCU’s review comments. TKW will revise the applications as required and submit to appropriate regulatory agencies for review and approval. TKW will meet with the reviewing agencies as necessary to explain and clarify permit application materials. TKW will provide written responses to all Request for Additional Information (RAI). The permits to be obtained could include the following permits: • The Lee County Health Department will require the submittal of an Application for a Specific Permit to Construct PWS Components to construct the proposed expansion and ancillary process expansions. The Florida Administrative Code (FAC) allows the use of the Preliminary Design Report in lieu of complete specifications and drawings for permitting the construction of the improvements. The review time for the Health Department permit is usually 30 days and the permit typically is issued within 60 days. July 2009 FORM F-3
    • • A building permit for the internal (and any external) changes will be required prior to construction. A set of drawings and specifications will be submitted to Lee County Building Services for preliminary review at the 90% design complete level to speed up the building permit process. Since this is a LCU project, the final signed and sealed design drawings will be submitted by the Design Team to LCU who will then submit for the building permit internally to Lee County Building Services. The team will provide all supporting documentation and responses to any RAI’s. The following permits will be required if an expansion to the existing process building is required and this causes an increase in the impervious coverage at the site: • A modification to the existing Environmental Resource Permit will be required by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) for the changes to the existing stormwater drainage system. SFWMD has a turnaround time that is roughly 90 days. • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) will require a NPDES Stormwater construction Notice of Intent application and preparation of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan. These plans are required to be submitted by the construction contractor. TKW will provide any drawings and specifications needed for the submittal. • Lee County will require a Lee County Development Order if the process building is expanded. Since this is a Lee County Utility (LCU) project, the design drawings will be submitted by the Design Team to LCU who then submits this application internally to Lee County Development Services. The team will provide all supporting documentation. In terms of QA/QC our project team will utilize CDM’s well-established procedures for quality management. CDM has codified our own QA/QC requirements in a Quality Management Procedures Manual for design-build projects. QMP-4 was developed based on CDM’s extensive experience as an engineer-led design-build firm. The CDM internal QA/QC manual for design-build projects (QMP4) will be used by all subconsultants and subcontractors on the project team. The foundation of all CDM’s QM programs is “exceeding our clients’ expectation”. To make sure deliverables are complete and meet LCU requirements, we will perform independent quality reviews of all deliverables on a bi-weekly basis during design execution and prior to their submittal. Our team includes Charles J. Voss, P.E., BCEE - Design & Drawings; Kenneth A. Klinko, P.E. - Water Process; Trudi Williams, P.E. – Permitting; and Bruce G. Duff, PMP– Constructability to assist the project management team in implementing and overseeing the QA/QC program and facilitating team compliance with all QA/QC procedures. Quality management is addressed in the following ways. The quality management plan requires that key project team members stay involved in the project from design through procurement, construction, and startup. During the design of the North Lee County WTP expansion CDM’s construction professionals and operations and maintenance specialists will work with the design engineers and have input to ensure that designs are constructible, that the designed facilities can be constructed within budget and that facilities can be operated and maintained efficiently. Throughout the entire design phase, our design engineers work closely with our construction professionals to ensure that equipment meets the design specification and that the design intent is achieved. Also during procurement, operations and maintenance specialists work with the construction professionals to review submittals and startup plans submitted by subcontractors. During construction, CDM’s design engineers stay involved and ensure implementation of the design intent by attending progress meetings, reviewing submittals, and answering questions of the construction professionals. Additionally, CDM’s design engineers will make site visits as required to review the work and coordinate with the CDM site manager to expedite and direct the field crews as required to meet the design intent. Non-conformances with quality standards are resolved systematically using a structured methodology. Prior to startup, CDM’s operations and maintenance specialists will review all plans for tie-in of the new systems, along with the startup protocol and will work with LCU operations staff to ensure that the LCU staff is properly trained and ready for the startup. CDM’s operations and maintenance specialists will then work alongside the LCU operations staff to provide technical startup advice as the facility is commissioned. CDM’s fully integrated team of design professionals, construction professionals, and operations and maintenance specialists, all under one roof, assures LCU that the design intent and LCU expectations are understood and implemented during every phase of the project. Our approach provides LCU additional assurance that expectations for project quality are being met. An independent peer review monitors progress on the project design activities. Our project team will interact with senior level professionals with extensive relevant experience but who are not directly involved in the day-to-day activities. This review team provides objective review and evaluation of the work, considering important factors such as the adequacy and soundness of conclusions; appropriate application of existing and new technology, and use of sound, practical engineering practices and value-based solutions to project challenges. July 2009 FORM F-4
    • e. Potential alternative innovative approaches to the project if applicable. A number of potential alternative and innovated approaches were identified in Part b. above. These ideas included the possibility of modifying the existing skids to get additional capacity from each of the existing skids. If achievable using the existing vitaulic couplings and pre-fabrication of the new skid assemblies, then electrical improvements could occur, primarily motor and motor control center changeouts, and additional capacity could be achieved while manufacturing of the new skid(s) was occurring. During the relatively short period that the skid was out-of-service, modifications to the interstage booster pump could be made as well as any installation of an energy recovery device. It should also be noted that most of the equipment required for this expansion project can be obtained as “Owner-Supplied” items. This situation would result in LCU saving the Sales Tax as well as greatly advancing the construction by shortening the delivery time for long lead time equipment (pumps, motors, other electrical gear, membrane skids including elements, etc.) f. Describe the Project Team’s approach to constructability reviews. CDM offers two types of constructability review services. The first is a traditional approach which assigns the review of completed plans, specifications, and contract documents to engineers experienced in the various design disciplines used during the design. A brief workshop is used to consolidate the findings of reviewers and then the comments of reviewers are tabulated and transmitted to the client. The second type of review makes greater use of the synergy involved in workshops. In this type of review, the major review effort is provided in a workshop setting where the team performs a team review, and through the guidance of a facilitator, focuses its efforts where the greatest opportunity for cost savings or risk reduction are identified. Content for constructability review is project specific and may include: • Confirmation of constructability • Time impact analysis • Utilization of current means and methods • Safety analysis • Consideration of alternate materials • Risk assessment and analysis. • Cost analysis During design, CDM’s construction professionals, procurement specialists, and operations staff will work with the design engineers and have input to assure that designs are constructible, that the designed facilities can be constructed within budget and those facilities can be operated and maintained with minimal disruption. In addition, close attention will be paid to project details during the constructability review to ensure that there is minimal disruption to the operation of the existing plant during the construction of the upgraded facility and that tie-in and startup of the new facilities are well thought out and planned. During procurement and project buyout, CDM anticipates the LCU representative will work with our assigned site construction professionals and have input to assure that equipment meets the design specification and that the design intent is achieved. Also during procurement, our operations and maintenance specialists work with our subcontractors and LCU operators to review performance guarantees, testing protocols, and over see interruption plans implemented by subcontractors. During construction, CDM will solicit design engineers involvement and assure implementation of the design intent. Additionally, CDM will notify LCU representatives to make site visits as required to review the work. Qualified testing companies approved by CDM and LCU for soils, concrete, steel, asphalt testing will be issued subcontracts for such work upon award. Non-conformances with quality standards will be resolved systematically using a structured methodology proprietary to CDM. As facilities become ready for startup, CDM commissioning specialists work alongside our site manager and equipment suppliers to assure that equipment is installed as required by the manufacturer and is ready for startup. Prior to startup, CDM’s operation and maintenance specialists will review all startup protocol and will work with LCU operations staff to assure that the staff is properly trained and ready for the startup; CDM’s operations and maintenance specialists will then work alongside the operations staff to provide technical startup advice. Our approach also provides LCU an option for additional assurance that expectations for project quality are being met. An independent peer review or management team is arranged to monitor progress on the project design activities and construction for all D-B projects. We will selectively engage senior level professionals from CDM, along with a representative from our Chief Technical Office with extensive relevant experience, but who are not directly involved in the day-to-day activities. This review team can provide objective review and evaluation of the work. July 2009 FORM F-5
    • FORM FF SPECIAL EQUIPMENT Added Value of State of-the-Art 3D/4D D-B Center CDM’s Fort Myers office will manage this project and will have primary responsibility for all work performed under this contract. Regardless of where the work is physically performed or by whom, all assignments will flow through the CDM Fort Myers office, which will review, manage, and provide oversight for all tasks. One of the distinct advantages of choosing CDM for this important project is our ability to utilize the CDM 3D/4D D-B Center located in Orlando. The CDM Orlando 3D/4D D-B Center serves the CDM southeast region. Staff and clients from Florida, Puerto Rico, and as far north as Tennessee, gather in this state-of-the art facility and work together to produce innovative designs in 3D/4D. The 2,600 sq. ft. 3D/4D D-B Center is designed to be flexible and allow for maximum use of the space to meet CDM and client needs. The 3D/4D D-B Center utilizes three 100” projection, three 50”, and one 60” plasma screen to show multiple images consisting of all electronic media types. The facility uses web enabled video switching so that any of the 16 video inputs located throughout the 3D/4D D-B Center can be directed to any combination of the plasma or projection screens. The rooms are also set up for video conferencing which allows the various CDM Design Centers to be connected and interactive. The 3D/4D D-B Center also utilizes “smart” technology that allows the user to mark-up the images on one of the plasma screens during the meetings and capture these markups electronically. While the Orlando 3D/4D D-B Center provides greater technology and improved capabilities to the project design team, the maximum benefit will be realized by LCU. Because of the nature of the 3D/4D designs, LCU will have improved visualization for form and function of the facilities at all stages of the design process. The enhanced 2D deliverables showing 3D content will allow for better understanding by the bidding contractors, resulting in better bids and facilities that meet LCU’s needs. The superior quality design work can result in fewer construction conflicts and issues for LCU, leading to fewer change orders and lower risk. Once the design and construction is complete, each facility will have improved operability and maintenance provided by the virtual design process allowing for the potential to leverage data throughout the lifecycle of the facility. As a testament to the success of the technology, Jeff Littrell, Director of Okaloosa County Water & Sewer System (Arbennie Pritchett Water Reclamation Facility design-build project) spoke highly of CDM’s unique design process: “We knew going with a design-build approach would streamline the process; however, the 3D and 4D elements that CDM has brought to the project have really taken the process to a new level. With each conversation we have or decision that needs to be made, we can see our new facility in real time.” 3D/4D Capabilities – CDM has made significant progress in developing 3D capabilities for design implementation, starting as early as 1994. Beginning with the use of 3D for proposal/marketing work, this has now progressed to “intelligent” production level 3D, allowing us to produce 2D deliverables, as well as maintain the visualization benefits of a physical 3D model design. The 4th D for CDM is related to the extensive data that can be associated with the physical 3D model. CDM’s 3D/4D design approach is more than just adding a 3rd dimension to previous 2D design approaches. Our approach is adding the 4th dimension of intelligent design to 3D design with focus on virtual design leading to a better facility for our clients. 3D/4D Design Approach – The overall design approach to 3D/4D is based on the simple principle of providing LCU with a superior and more cost effective project solution by utilizing state-of-the-art technology in intelligent 3D plant design. CDM uses a sophisticated suite of tools and techniques to achieve this goal. To provide a reliable and structured framework, CDM utilizes an “enterprise level” environmental data management system (EDMS) that allows engineers and designers to work more closely and in a structured and managed environment, creating a central repository for all related project data. Applying specific rules and permissions to the project data ensures that a consistent “workflow” is used. Implementing these specific rules provides a secure integrated environment. The EDMS allows the use of a single, integrated “data centric” physical model, allowing the design team to communicate more openly, reducing inconsistencies much earlier in the design process. As part of this “data centric” 4D model, a “living” database can be utilized and maintained throughout each phase in the design lifecycle to both feed and extract intelligent data from the 3D model using an open database connectivity compliant database structure, capable of integrating with several different database formats including Oracle, SQL, and Microsoft Access. Beginning with the creation of intelligent P&IDs, the design process utilizes this “single source” of data to drive the creation and maintenance of the 3D model. Building the design with the process and instrumentation design teams early in the project greatly reduces the chance of major changes downstream in the design process. By enabling the process engineers to populate the project database through datasheets, this in turn allows the “living” database to provide valuable information downstream to the design team earlier than with the typical 2D approach. CDM utilizes a “discipline” approach to 3D design, involving all disciplines (architectural, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, structural, etc.) in the creation and maintenance of the physical 3D model. Each discipline team is capable of visualizing and cross checking other disciplines’ work in real time during the design phase. From conceptual design to design review to interference detection, the use of a single master 3D model is a powerful tool, allowing the design staff to provide added value to LCU. 3D CAD Capabilities – By producing the final 2D construction drawings from the 3D model, we have greatly reduced the overall drafting effort, minimizing user “interpretation” and inconsistencies due to an inability to visualize the sections in relation to the plan drawings. By having a master 3D model that has gone through numerous iterations, design reviews, cross checks from other disciplines, and also using the interference detection tools available, we have shown that the final drawings will reflect a far more cohesive and accurate set of client deliverables. While the tools mentioned above allow the CDM design team to be more efficient during the 3D model detail design stage, it is important to mention that July 2009 FORM FF-1
    • FORM FF SPECIAL EQUIPMENT these tools are only as good as the support framework from which they are created. In keeping with this, CDM employs a full set of CAD standards to both streamline and enforce consistency among all team members. Beginning with the creation of the P&IDs to the generation of the 3D model and finally to the production of the 2D deliverables, the CAD standards are a vital link in the overall approach to a successful 3D design project. CDM recognizes that the standards not only provide the framework for the design team work but, more importantly, it allows CDM to provide our client with a superior deliverable by reducing redundancy and minimizing drafting inconsistencies. These standards are critical when working in a production environment, but even more so when working with a complex 3D model being shared by a multi- discipline team of engineers and designers. As part of the 4D design, equipment data for all equipment including mechanical equipment, field instruments, and pipes/valves is included in the 3D model. This robust database allows operations staff to simply point and click at a piece of equipment on a drawing and connect to the equipment data sheet or the O&M manual. At the same time, the process monitoring and control software screens are 2D images from our 3D model, which in turn provide the output needed for the maintenance management system (MMS). This 4D approach, therefore, provides a seamless integration from design to construction to startup to operations for years to come. The added benefit is that any change, if updated on one database, automatically updates all affected databases allowing LCU to maintain a current inventory and equipment information at all times. 3D/4D Design Excellence Recognized with Two Awards – To support growing Okaloosa County, CDM designed and is building a state-of- the-art wastewater treatment facility that will help make best use of the available water resources in this vibrant coastal community on Florida's panhandle. The 10-mgd-day Arbennie Pritchett WRF, which serves a population of 100,000-including personnel at Eglin Air Force Base-features biological nutrient removal and ultraviolet disinfection to treat wastewater for groundwater recharge. To facilitate project communication and efficiency, CDM used intelligent 3D design across all disciplines—architectural, civil, electrical, HVAC, instrumentation, plumbing, process, and structural—for more than 20 buildings and structures. The result: on-schedule construction due to an expedited staff learning curve, faster completion of complex designs, and a collaborative environment with real-time technical and visual data. The project also incorporates 4D design, which integrates a living database into the 3D model by linking operations and maintenance manuals, computerized maintenance management system, and process monitoring and control soft ware. Earning two 2008 Bentley Empowered Awards of Excellence for extraordinary achievements in improving and sustaining the world's infrastructure, this lasting 4D tool supports efficient operations and knowledge management for future generations. CDM's design-build approach streamlined the $50 million project's aggressive schedule, allowing final design to be completed in 5.5 months and producing a seamless project delivery. Ultimately, this multi-dimensional project will deliver a sustainable facility to produce high-quality reclaimed water, protect dwindling resources, and contribute to the area's economic vitality. Instrumentation & Control Capabilities and Resources – The firm’s automation and information management professionals have worked together to provide planning, design, implementation, start-up, and training services for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, and computer-based monitoring and control systems for more than 500 water and wastewater projects throughout the world. Linked by a state-of-the-art computer network, staff located throughout the firm have the ability to provide our clients with personal service on a local basis, while quickly drawing upon the technical expertise of CDM’s Instrumentation & Control (I&C) group throughout the U.S. Currently staffed by more than 200 professionals, the group is responsible for developing and programming efficient and reliable process I&C systems for a wide variety of water and wastewater projects. From this experience, we have found the following to be critical to system success: Expertise in the evaluation, planning, design, startup, and operation of instrumentation, control and telemetry systems; Ready access to qualified, multi-disciplinary in-house personnel; Ability to respond quickly to client needs; Knowledge of the costs and benefits associated with all technical alternatives, and Capability to perform a range of services from planning—to design—to construction. Our I&C group offers specific services in the areas of instrumentation planning, cost/benefit analyses, evaluations, detailed design, factory witness testing, onsite supervision of installation, application engineering, startup assistance, and onsite client training programs. In providing instrumentation services, CDM is committed to innovative and cost-effective planning, timely execution, and skilled local project management to effectively coordinate complex design projects from concept through implementation and operation. Pilot Plant Abilities - CDM maintains four pilot plant trailers that are capable of providing LPRO or nanofiltration treatment. Nominal permeate production can range up to 15 to 18 gpm at recovery rates ranging from 75% to 85%. CDM also possesses a high recovery RO unit that is coupled with a standard pilot plant to obtain permeate recovery rates up to 98%. CDM can also provide from in-house capabilities, all required tankage, pumps, chemical storage and feed systems, instrumentation and control systems, and other required accessories. When performing pilot testing at flow capacities stated for the LPRO or nanofiltration membrane pilot plants, CDM generally obtains the MF/UF systems from the various manufacturers. This is done so that the proprietary systems and latest MF/UF membrane module technology can be utilized. July 2009 FORM FF-2
