Gibson Place Utility Company

The Gibson Place Utility Company WWTP is a 2.0 mgd advanced wastewater treatment plant currently being constructed to serve The Villages, Florida. The design allows for an easy expansion to 4.0 mgd. This is a fast-tracked project for The Villages due to the rapid pace of development (3,000 homes are annually constructed).

Halff is providing design, permitting and construction administration services. The WWTP consists of: ​

  • Headworks with fine screening​
  • Equalization/surge basin with jet aeration mixing​
  • 5-Stage Bardenpho biological process (Ovivo Carrousel)​
  • Secondary clarification​
  • Disc filtration​
  • Disinfection utilizing chlorine gas​
  • Reclaimed water storage and high service pumping​
  • Rapid infiltration basins for wet weather disposal​
  • Aerated sludge holding​
  • Sludge dewatering using belt filter presses​
  • Standby power, pump building, electrical, SCADA and control​

The project is being initially constructed as a 2.0 mgd facility with capability for expansion to 4.0 mgd to accommodate future growth within the Gibson Place Utility Company service area. ​

Halff took initiative in many ways to meet tight schedule demands. To expedite the permitting process, Halff conducted pre-application meetings with FDEP to give them advance notice about the project. Halff also incorporated key project management strategies, including:

  • Project execution via design-build method
  • Rigorous project oversight
  • Teaming together with proven subconsultants that demonstrate a history of success in accelerated projects
  • Project schedule rollout to all team members with defined tasks, roles and deadline expectations
  • Frequent progress meetings with team members and owners to stay accountable and on track
