Project Summary

The City of Crystal River provides potable water to approximately 2,500 people via its only source of water, the City’s Water Treatment Plant (WTP). An interconnection with the County exists as a backup in the event the WTP needs to be placed offline.

Over the past 20 years, the WTP has undergone various upgrades to specific aspects of the WTP; but never an overall improvement that looked at the entirety of the WTP. Hoyle, Tanner analyzed the existing WTP and operation to produce a preliminary engineering report for the City that analyzed the necessary improvements and upgrades to allow the plant to operate more efficiently, with greater reliability, and more safely.

Upgrades that were identified included: upgrades to its high service pumps in order to improve efficiency and operation/discharge to the distribution system, improvements in remote monitoring and control via a new SCADA system, upgrades to chemical feed systems (Chlorine and Fluoride) to meet 10-State Standards, improved reliability via automated valves to the County interconnection as a secondary source of water and improved electrical controls. The report included an engineer’s opinion of probable costs.

The project is currently entering the construction phase and is expected to be completed in early 2014.
