JEA Progressive Design Build Services for the Greenland WRF Pipelines

JEA Progressive

As the primary provider of Water and Wastewater services within Duval County, and portions of Nassau County and St. Johns County, JEA is constantly seeking to invest in capital improvements for future growth. In anticipation of the increased growth along US Hwy. 1, East of US Hwy. 9B, South of Butler Blvd., and West of Nocatee Pkwy., JEA proposed constructing the Greenland Water Reclamation Facility (WRF), which can handle upwards of 6.0 million gallons per day (MGD). As part of this new WRF, considerable effort was required to design and construct new and existing Water/Wastewater pipelines to sufficiently handle anticipated flow requirements.

As part of this project, SSMC performed Land Surveying and Mapping services and SUE services to include boundary survey, right-of-way, topographic survey, utility designation, and utility location of the Burnt Mill Road Lift Station and Reedy Branch Lift Station, following an existing easement South to the Greenland WRF. The survey included horizontal and vertical controls, property limits, topographic features, collection of boring locations, wetlands flagging and environmental habitats, trees (sizes and species) larger than 6-inch in diameter, and down-gradient stormwater facilities. All work was performed in Civil 3D using survey figures and a model (DTM).

To ensure the engineer’s proper plan and profile design of future Water and Wastewater facilities, SSMC performed Utility Designation (QL-B) and Location (QL-A) in conformance with ASCE C-1-38-02 of 93 Test Holes/VVH for conflict resolution as determined by the engineer. All efforts were performed per Florida Statutes (F.S.) Section 472.027, Standards of Practice for Land Surveying and Mapping Services, and F.S. Chapter 556, Underground Facility Damage Prevention and Safety Act.


“I had the pleasure of working with a couple of your employees over the past couple weeks. James Murphy and Beau Boyles; very professional and “can do” attitudes. They worked well with the crew from PSI and the task was completed one day ahead of schedule with no underground utilities damaged.”
