Globaltech, Inc. was the design-builder for the City of Lauderhill Water Treatment Plant (WTP) Disinfection Improvements. The project was conceptualized by Malcolm Pirnie, the City’s design-build criteria consultant. The improvements were to provide 4-log virus treatment of the groundwater source used by the City’s WTP.
In August 2010, Globaltech completed the design-build project at the City of Lauderhill to improve the water treatment plant disinfection system. The improvements include addition of an aqua ammonia system, carbon dioxide system, chlorine gas system improvements, pH analyzers, and chlorine analyzers. The project also included the installation of a 36-inch finished water bypass for one of the existing ground storage tanks.
Various chlorine injection points were added downstream of the clearwell to provide free chlorine contact time prior to the addition of aqua ammonia to form chloramines for residual disinfection. Carbon dioxide was added in the clearwell to reduce pH.
The improvements were based on a Disinfection Study and Basis of Design Report by Malcolm Pirnie. Malcolm Pirnie oversaw the construction of the project for the City. Globaltech provided final design, permitting, and construction for the new facilities. Project was permitted through the City of Lauderhill Building Department and the Broward County Health Department.
Work under this contract was administered by the City of Lauderhill and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. As an ARRA funded project, Globaltech had to follow the requirements of the Davis-Bacon Fair Labor Act.
