The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department established a Program and Construction Management for the implementation of a Pump Station Improvement Program for upgrading the Wastewater Collection and Transmission System (WCTS) which involves the review and evaluation of over 113 sewage pump stations of all sizes, basis of design reports, plans, and operations of pump stations and force mains for WASD. The program includes Infiltration/Inflow repair work, supervisory control and data acquisition, pump station rehabilitation (from 5 – 120 hp pumps), and force main projects ranging (from 8 to 24 inches in diameter).
WASD’s pump stations must to be certified as capable of meeting a nominal average pump operating time (NAPOT) of less than or equal to 10 hours per day and capable of meeting peak flows and peak pressures. Pump stations in moratorium do not allow new developments to connect to the sewer system until the Remedial Action Plan is implemented and completed.
300 Engineering is working as a Sub consultant; however, 300 Engineering role is Program Manager, responsible for the following four phases of the program: 1) Planning and Engineering which includes the basis of design report preparation for pump stations and force mains; 2) Design Management of 8 Design Consultants; 3) Construction Management of multiple pump station and force main contractors through the County’s MCC 7040 procurement method; and, 4) Infiltration/Inflow Management which entails the management of 4 different contractors for Manhole, Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Survey (SSES), CIPP, and Dig and Replace (D&R) contracts.
