PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Project consists of the construction of the Reclaimed Water Main on Wiles Road and Lyons Road, and will extend a 16” diameter reclaimed water transmission main for approximately 6,000 linear feet on Wiles Road from NW 39th Ave. (from current interconnect with Broward County) to Lyons Road and then south to Cullum Road and also including a north connection at Lyons Road. This will further the availability of reuse water for landscape irrigation in the northern region of the City of Coconut Creek (Figure 1). The project design has been completed through two earlier IWRP Grant projects – Wiles Road Reclaimed Water Main Extension along Wiles Road from NW 39th Avenue to Lyons Road (2009), and Lyons Road Reclaimed Water Main Extension along Lyons Road from Wiles Road to Serko Boulevard (2013). This reclaimed water main could provide up to 0.31 million gallons per day for landscape irrigation at play fields and green areas in two separate areas in Coconut Creek: Main Street and Lyons Road. The Main Street design standards state that, in addition to irrigation of the community landscape, reclaimed water would also be utilized for HVAC process purposes in this area.

PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The Project goal is to construct approximately 6,000 linear feet of 16-inch reclaimed water main on Wiles Road from NW 39th Avenue (from current interconnect with Broward County) to Lyons Road and then south to Cullum Road, and also including a north connection at Lyons Road. Its objective is to expand Coconut Creek’s reuse distribution to northern areas of the City while reducing withdrawals from the Biscayne aquifer, and increasing groundwater recharge.

The City of Coconut Creek entered into an agreement with Broward County in 2016 to receive up to 3 MGD of reclaimed water for distribution within the City’s utility service area. The Broward County reclaimed water interconnect construction was also completed in 2016 and this project will allow the expansion of said interconnect.

This project will encourage regionalization of local water supplies by connecting to and taking advantage of existing reuse capacity at the Broward County North Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant. It will further Broward County’s efforts to comply with the State Ocean Outfall Legislation requiring elimination of wastewater discharges through ocean outfalls.

This project is consistent with the Broward County IWRP, the South Florida Water Management District, Lower East Coast Water Supply Plan, the Broward County Regional Reuse Master Plan as well as the City’s Reclaimed Water Master Plan. The project advances regional water resources objectives recommended by the Broward Water Resources Task Force (2015 Report). This project is a major component of the City’s Reclaimed Water Master Plan and is necessary to achieve the demand reduction goals of the plan.
