We are pleased to report that we are approximately 40% complete with constructing an expansion to our Mid-Clay Wastewater Treatment Facility. Scheduled completion is the end of the fourth quarter of 2018. The expansion will increase the plant capacity from 650,000 gallons per day to 1,500,000 gallons per day! This state-of-the-art facility will be capable of treating the wastewater to advanced treatment levels which will be suitable for public access reuse. It will employ the processes of screening, grit removal, biological treatment with nutrient removal, filtration, and disinfection. The finished water will be disposed of via irrigation of residential neighborhoods and/or application to on-site rapid infiltration basins (i.e., percolation ponds). Both of these methods of effluent disposal are beneficial to the environment in that they do not involve discharge to surface waters and they result in recharge of the aquifer. The construction contract for this project is $13,338,171.

The Mid-Clay Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project will relieve the wastewater treatment loading at the existing Ridaught Wastewater Treatment Plant, extending its capacity and service life. This project sustainably enhances both wastewater treatment facilities’ service levels as development continues to expand in the Ridaught and Mid-Clay service areas. We should realize a decrease in total cost of ownership because each plant will have reserved capacity that will meet future demands. The Mid-Clay project has the potential to remove roughly 2,000 septic tanks from the Mid-Clay service area as future developments install both water and wastewater infrastructure. Finally, this project will maintain the quality of life for all of the citizens of Clay County through commitment of a sustainable system that enhances conservation efforts by decreasing environmental impacts and by providing economical sustainable service levels to CCUA’s community.
