Burns & McDonnell completed water, wastewater and reuse master plans for Poinciana, Fla., a growing area 10 miles southwest of Disney World. The master plans are based on projected customer growth from 7,000 in 1998, to more than 38,000 in 2018. The Poinciana service area extends about 20 miles south.
The water master plan evaluated their 11 supply wells, five water plants, one storage tank, pipelines and their ability to meet year 2018 maximum day demands of 22 million gallons per day (MGD) and a peak hour of 44 MGD. A hydraulic analysis was completed with Cybernet 3.0 to size new pipes, storage, booster pump stations, wells and water plants. The recommendations result in a total capital improvement budget of $27 million phased over 20 years.
The wastewater master plan evaluated the system’s four plants, with an existing daily average capacity of 2.3 MGD, lift stations and 150 miles of force mains. It also evaluated the system’s ability to serve the year 2018 projected growth. System peak wet weather flow is projected to increase from 4.7 MGD in 1998, to 24.8 MGD in 2018. A hydraulic analysis was completed with Cybernet 3.0 to size new and parallel force mains, lift stations, and new and expanded wastewater plants. The recommendations result in a total capital improvement budget of $29 million phased over 20 years.
The reuse master plan evaluated four wastewater plants, Poinciana’s existing reuse system and recommended improvements to increase reuse with projected growth. Based on existing and anticipated reuse opportunities for golf course irrigation, green space and sod farm irrigation, wetlands, rapid infiltration basins, and the City of Kissimmee, the proposed reuse system can reuse 18.6 MGD of the system's 24.8 MGD maximum day supply. System improvements, including pipelines, storage and pump stations, were evaluated, scheduled, and cost estimates were developed. This report was utilized to obtain both the Regional Reuse/Land Application Permit and Wastewater Plant Operating Permit.
