CCUA continuously looks to improve our services, while maintaining great customer service as our county continues to transition with a high population growth rate. Our team puts in significant hours of detailed, strategic planning to address the future service needs. We are excited to provide a construction update on what we have been working on as an organization and for these ideas to come to fruition.
With the construction of the First Coast Expressway bringing a multitude of developments, CCUA is expanding residential and business services. Our Peters Creek Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) exists within the heart of the county’s developing area. By upgrading this facility, we will provide water reclamation services to incoming development west and south of Green Cove Springs. Once the upgrade has been complete, we project we will serve up to 21,600 customers within this area of Clay County. The Peters Creek WRF will become CCUA’s largest WRF. We are diligently working on this project, and we anticipate the first phase of the facility will be operational in late 2024 to early 2025.
We attribute the success of this project to synergy of efforts with community stakeholders such as Clay County, Clay County Economic Development Corporation (EDC), St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), Reinhold Corporation, and the Park Group to name a few. We also want to thank our community leaders such as Senator Jennifer Bradly as well as Representatives Sam Garrison and Bobby Payne for supporting CCUA’s efforts on this project. We also want to acknowledge the Clay County Board of County Commissioners and their team led by County Manager, Howard Wanamaker for being such great community leaders with their investments in the County’s bonded roadway program making development in this area possible.
More recently, CCUA finished an upgrade to our Fleming Island WRF in May of this year. Like the Peters Creek Facility, this project allows CCUA to provide services to additional business and residential areas. On the immediate horizon, we are upgrading and expanding facilities to help serve our county’s growing population with the Mid-Clay WRF, Meadow Lakes Water Treatment Plant, and the Saratoga Springs Water Treatment Plant. We anticipate we will complete all three (3) projects by the end of 2023.
Outside of our treatment plants, we are expanding our internal facilities as well. Later this year in December we will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for our warehouse and storage facility. The newly constructed space will allow for staff to stock essential materials, parts, and equipment for daily operations. The new warehouse and storage facility will allow CCUA to operate more efficiently by leveraging the utility’s size and purchasing capabilities.
Finally, we will break ground on a new expansion of the Administration Building. We are constructing the first of two expansions. This building expansion is necessary due to lack of available space within the existing building. We are growing so quickly that when we complete the new building addition, we anticipate that office space will be nearly full. This level of growth will make the second building addition shortly after the completion of the first phase.
All the growth and expansion we described means CCUA needs people to join the CCUA team. The Clay County community depends on CCUA delivering safe and reliable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water services. This mission requires trained professionals to deliver those services we depend on. We are implementing a Professional Development and Training Program to attract and retain talent right here in Clay County. We also reinitiated the High School Intern Program in cooperation with the Clay County School District. We want to engage, train, and hopefully employ a future generation of Clay County’s residents right here at CCUA.
The future of CCUA is promising and bright. As we work towards tomorrow with our customers, and external stakeholders, our organization will keep the community in mind with projects we construct and the services we provide. We thank you and greatly appreciate your continued support.
