Hazen and Sawyer, P.C., partnered with the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) to ensure the efficient and environmentally sound management of wastewater across all airport facilities. This comprehensive project involved a complete overhaul of the existing sanitary sewer master plan, guaranteeing smooth operations and adherence to environmental regulations.

Project Scope

  • Collected and reviewed existing as-built data for the sanitary sewer system.
  • Conducted field verification to confirm the accuracy of as-built information.
  • Updated the utility atlas with the latest infrastructure details.
  • Evaluated and refined existing computer models simulating the system’s performance.
  • Developed future modeling scenarios to anticipate growth and demand.
  • Reviewed and updated protocols and management practices for optimal system operation.
  • Compiled and updated the comprehensive sanitary sewer master plan document.
  • Reviewed and revised the MDAD design guidelines for sanitary sewer infrastructure.
  • Updated and streamlined the technical specifications for future projects.
  • Assisted the MDAD in navigating and obtaining necessary environmental permits.

Project Outcome

  • A robust and updated sanitary sewer master plan for the MDAD, guiding future infrastructure development and maintenance.
  • Improved understanding of the system’s current capacity and future needs.
  • Enhanced efficiency and effectiveness of wastewater management practices.
  • Streamlined design and construction processes for future sanitary sewer projects.
  • Secured necessary environmental permits for continued operation and planned upgrades.

Additional Notes:

  • This project’s extended duration (9 years) suggests ongoing updates and revisions to the master plan throughout its development.
  • The collaboration with Hazen and Sawyer, a prominent engineering firm, indicates the project’s complexity and importance.
