  12. 12. 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.

  14. 14. 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. 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 C-4

  16. 16. 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

Summary of Work: Mr. Prah served as the project manager/director for the pilot plant testing and preliminary and final design of a 4-mgd LPRO expansion to an existing 8-mgd lime softening plant. The total plant capacity of the plant after the expansion is 10-12 mgd. This project also included the design of an 1,800 lb/day on-site sodium hypochlorite generation system, replacing an existing chlorite gas system. July 2009 FORM C-7
  18. 18. 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

  20. 20. 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

  22. 22. 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.

  24. 24. Summary of Work: Dr. Thompson directly participated in and directed the activities relating to the conceptual alternatives analysis report, preliminary engineering report, preliminary design report, and final design efforts. The new facility, substantially completed in April 2008 includes a new wellfield; complete treatment facility including on-site generation of sodium hypochlorite, alkalinity and hardness adjustment, and degasification with off-gas odor control; and a new deep injection well for concentrate disposal. 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
  26. 26. 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
