Notice Summary :
MIAMI-DADE WATER AND SEWER DEPARTMENT
OCEAN OUTFALL LEGISLATION PROGRAM CONTRACTING OPPORTUNITIES
Landmark Program Delivers Opportunities and Sustainable Infrastructure in Miami-Dade County, FL
The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) is currently implementing system wide upgrades throughout their wastewater infrastructure with the Ocean Outfall Legislation (OOL) Program. In addition to technical aspects of system improvements, this landmark program will result in broader social, economic, and environmental benefits, integrating resilience into planning for long-term sustainability, providing workforce and small business opportunities.
The primary focus of the OOL Program is the elimination of non-emergency ocean outfall discharges. To accomplish this, treated wastewater after secondary treatment and high-level disinfection will be pumped into deep injection wells.
• The OOL Program will improve the existing infrastructure at the South District, Central District, and North District Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs).
• A pool of prequalified injection well drilling contractors has been established. The first two wells at Central District WWTP have been completed and further well construction will commence in early 2019.
South District Treatment Plant Improvements
The initial focus of the program will be five South District WWTP projects which include:
• a new filter backwash waste treatment system
• a new headworks, two new oxygenation trains and addition of step feed to existing oxygenation trains
• two new secondary clarifiers, Return Activated Sludge (RAS) and transfer pumping improvements, a new flocculation basin and a new filter train
• two new chlorine contact tanks and a new effluent pump station
• a new electrical building
Opportunities for Contractors
Delivering this large and complicated program requires the collaboration and support of engineering design firms and contractors. The South District treatment projects are currently in design with a construction value of $300 - $500 million, which are expected to be bid in late 2019.
