Agenda 04/26/2016 Item #16C 4 4/26/2016 16.C.4. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Recommendation to review the findings of the Risk Assessment Report for the Utility of the City of Everglades; advise the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) that the County is not in a position to accept ownership or serve as the operator of the City of Everglades Utility at this time and encourage the City of Everglades to work with appropriate Federal and State Agencies for assistance to achieve full permit compliance and operational reliability in the Utility. OBJECTIVE: To provide the findings of the Risk Assessment Report prepared by Dr. Ronald E Benson, Jr., Ph.D, P.E., Senior Vice President/Principal with Hole Montes, Inc. with regards to the major issues and risks which a governmental entity might be faced with in the event they were to become responsible for the City of Everglades Utility system. CONSIDERATIONS: On March 8, 2016, Agenda Item 16.F.4, the Board of County Commissioners (Board) directed the County Manager or his designee to evaluate options for potential participation in the operation of the Everglades City utility. The direction came in response to a letter dated February 29, 2016 to Deputy County Manager Nick Casalanguida from the Deputy Secretary for Regulatory Programs at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection(FDEP)per Attachment 1. As summarized in the Risk Briefing per Attachment 2, consideration in this overview of major issues and risks is, in the event Collier County were to be the entity taking over this utility, that it is the County's standard requirement that utility systems be brought up to the existing compliance and utility standards as a condition of acceptance. Documents used to complete this assessment included those provided by the State and County (as included as attachments to agenda item 16.F.4 on March 8), and all supporting documents included in Attachment 2 link. It may be reasonably anticipated in the event that the City of Everglades City utility system was to be expanded for reliability and upgraded for sustainable operations, as identified in the Risk Assessment Report, that significant multi-agency Federal and State investments of approximately $30 million to$55 million would be necessary to improve the entire wastewater treatment and collection system in the Everglades City wastewater utility and to additionally upgrade the drinking water system to standards typical of those for the Collier County Water- Sewer District(see Attachment 2 with supporting documents as a link). The County has not been contacted by the Everglades City utility or their elected officials. The Mayor has stated publicly that he will address the compliance issues and work cooperatively with the regulatory authorities. No Federal or State funds have been identified that would supplant the existing funding scheme. It would appear to be not in the County's best interest to proceed with any commitments to FDEP under these conditions. FISCAL IMPACT: Approximately $30 million to$55 million would be necessary to bring the entire Everglades City Utility for sustainable operations and compliance with all applicable Federal, State, and Local requirements. Packet Page -1037- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS: This item has been reviewed by the County Attorney. It is the opinion of the County Attorney that (1) unless specifically asked to by the City of Everglades City to intervene, absent a court order it would be inappropriate for the County to become further involved in this; (2) it is impossible at this time to make an educated guess as to the potential liability and legal risks to the County should the County take over this system; and (3) if the County were to agree to simply manage this system on a temporary basis in order to bring the Utility into minimum compliance with the State, such an action could turn out to be permanent, irrespective of the Board's wishes. This item requires majority vote for Board action. -JAK GROWTH MANAGEMENT IMPACT: There is no growth management impact in this briefing. RECOMMENDATION: That the Board of County Commissioners authorize the County Manager or his designee to (1) respond to FDEP that the county is not in a position to accept ownership of the City of Everglades Utility nor potential participation in the operation of the Everglades City Utility; (2) encourage the City of Everglades to declare a local emergency and apply to appropriate Federal and State Agencies for emergency funds, financial support and grants for sustainable and reliable operations; and (3) encourage the City of Everglades to work cooperatively with FDEP and EPA to resolve the utility's non-compliance.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Recommendation to authorize staff to work with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to evaluate options for the County's future potential participation in the operation of the Everglades City utility. OBJECTIVE: To receive Board approval to work with FDEP, the County Attorney's office, and outside consultants in order to evaluate and develop a sustainable solution for the utility of Everglades City. CONSIDERATIONS: In a letter dated February 29,2016 to the Deputy County Manager(Attached),the Deputy Secretary for Regulatory Programs at FDEP noted Everglades City's inability to improve its wastewater treatment facilities which are out of compliance with FDEP's regulations (Consent Order and Summons Attachment 1A-1B). FDEP believes that Collier County could help improve the utility service in the Everglades City area. The Florida Rural Water Association's Wastewater Asset Management Plan (Attached) highlights the issues identified during its evaluation of the Everglades City Wastewater Treatment facility. Work will require an Initial Remedial Action plan (IRA), development of interim compliance measures,a mid-term action plan, and sustainable solutions for ongoing compliant operations. Staff's initial review will focus on the potential liabilities and risks associated with being assigned the contract manager "Receiver" of the utility. Staff will work with FDEP to make sure that all state and federal agencies have been contacted during this evaluation in order to fully assess the risks. This initial evaluation in no way binds the Board to accept the management of the utility but will give staff the necessary authorization and resources to bring back options. As part of this evaluation, staff will use existing contracts to hire an outside consultant and counsel to review the existing condition of the utility, review all current documentation,and help formulate the risk assessment with options. FISCAL IMPACT: Sufficient budget exists within the General Fund– Other General Administrative Cost Center in an amount not to exceed$50,000 to fund the necessary consulting services. LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS: This item is approved as to form and legality, and requires majority vote for Board approval.—JAK GROWTH MANAGEMENT IMPACT: There is no growth management impact in the initial review. RECOMMENDATION: That the Board of County Commissioners direct the County Manager or his designee to evaluate options for County's future potential participation in the operation of the Everglades City utility.

The Department believes that Collier County,which operates one of the best run utilities in the state, could improve significantly the utility service and quality of life in the Everglades City area.The Department is hoping that Collier County will join with the Department in developing and implementing a solution.We have partnered well in the past,and this would be another opportunity to do so. Please contact me or Jon Iglehart(Jon.Iglehart@dep.state.fl.us),Director of our Fort Myers regulatory office,with any questions.Thank you in advance for your time and attention to this matter.

Filing # 34811871 E-Filed 11/24/2015 10:04:31 AM IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TWENTIETH JUDUCIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR COLLIER COUNTY,FLORIDA STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION, Petitioner, Vs. Case No.: EVERGLADES CITY Respondent. PETITION FOR ENFORCEMENT AND COMPLAINT Petitioner,the STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION (Department), files this Petition for Enforcement and Complaint against EVERGLADES CITY(City), and alleges as follows: 1. This is a civil action for enforcement of a Consent Order(CO)pursuant to section 120.69 Florida Statutes("Fla. Stat.")and a civil complaint for injunctive relief and penalties, which exceed$100,000, exclusive of interest,costs, and attorneys' fees,pursuant to sections 403.121, 403.131,403.141, and 403.161 Fla. Stat. 2. This Court has jurisdiction over this action pursuant to Article V,section 5 of the Florida Constitution, and §§ 26.012, 120.69(1),403.121,403.131,403.141,403.161,and Fla. Stat. 3. Venue in this action lies in this Circuit because the subject matter of this action is located in Collier County, Florida,and because the events giving rise to this action took place in Collier County,Florida. 4. The Department of Environmental Protection is the regulatory agency of the State of Florida, created by§ 20.255,Fla. Stat., charged with the power and duty to administer and Packet Page -1043- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. enforce Chapters 376 and 403, Fla. Stat., and the regulations promulgated thereunder in Chapter 62, Fla.Admin. Code. 5. The City is a"person"as defined by section 403.031(5), Fla. Stat. 6.

As the wastewater Asset Management Plan is a requirement of the CWSRF funding program, it is no longer needed by the City,and we have been instructed to cease work on the Plan. Troy Cassidy and I appreciate the time you and your staff dedicated to this process,and thank you for your cooperation. This letter to outlines our findings,and provides information to assist you in addressing the issues encountered. When conducting our evaluation of the Utility,numerous issues were found in the plant and the collection system that directly impact your ability to provide safe wastewater collection and treatment as well as your ability to comply with State and Federal regulations for the same. We are providing a basic list of issues we identified while onsite for your information,and want to remind you that FRWA remains available to provide operational and other assistance to you as a member City. Our findings are outlined below and in the attached evaluation forms: Wastewater Treatment Facility: We recognize the WWTF is near the end of its service life and ultimately needs to be replaced,but until that time,you are still required to operate in accordance with Florida Administrative Code and FDEP regulations. With that in mind,a list of issues noted at the plant, and potential regulatory issues are as follows: During our site visit it was observed that there is a significant lack of maintenance record keeping at the treatment plant. Several tanks and related equipment have deteriorated to the point of potential failure; including the aeration basins,clarifiers, and digesters as well as traveling bridge filter in which was out of service. Several blowers were no longer functioning and the Emergency generator does not appear to be operable. Much of the noted deterioration appears to be a direct result of a lack of property onsite maintenance. It was also observed that recordkeeping was very poor.Daily log entries were very minimal as it pertains to operational controls,adjustments,and maintenance of the facility. All records were improperly filed in a shipping box without any regard to organization.The laboratory chemical tracking and inventory does not appear to be performed or documented. 1. The wastewater treatment facility reuse system is not currently operating in compliance with State standards as required by Florida Department of Environmental Protection Rule 62-610. Packet Page -1061- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. 2.

Packet Page -1064- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. 6. FAC 62-600.405 Capacity and Analysis Report has not been updated and submitted. Wastewater Collection System: There appears to be minimal gravity sewer in the collection system and our analysis of onsite manholes showed them to be in relatively good condition. Analysis of the actual gravity mains should be conducted via televising and smoke testing,but relatively little infiltration or inflow was noted during the evaluation of the gravity manholes. The collection system evaluation indicated that the majority of the lift stations in the city,with the exception of the following, are operating with only one functional pump or only one pump in actually place: • Everglades Isle(Both stations with two functional pumps) • Seaboard Villas • Barron Station • The Elementary School • Lake Cypress FDEP regulations require that all lift stations have a minimum of two(2)operable pumps to provide redundant service should one pump fail. Not addressing this situation could eventually result in additional FDEP compliance action. A detailed analysis of each lift station in the city is included in the attached evaluation forms with specific information on missing or failed pumps and other issues that may need to be addressed. A list of stations with major issues other than failed or missing pumps is included below as these facilities have the potential for,or evidence of, Sanitary Sewer Overflow(SSO)events: 1. The Chokoloskee Island Master Lift station was out of service,with all power tripped to the control panel. It is our understanding from discussions with field personnel that this is not an unusual occurrence. With no power to the control panel to activate the high water alarm,the station was overflowing directly to the adjacent waterway,resulting in a Sanitary Sewer Overflow event(SSO). We informed your personnel that this event must be reported to the FDEP and appropriate remediation actions be taken in accordance with FDEP regulations. When power was restored and the station pumps exercised, it was found that one pump is out of service. The second pump needs to be pulled,repaired,and returned to service as soon as possible. FRWA recommends the control panel for the station be repaired at the earliest opportunity,as failure of the station results in direct introduction of sewage into the environment in violation of State Law. We also recommend stairs or a ladder and platform be installed to provide access to the control panel as it is elevated for flood protection and is too high to be accessed from the ground. 2. The Estuary North Lift Station invert does not appear to be properly sealed into the wetwell and shows evidence of groundwater infiltration. The invert should be sealed,and any sand/soils should be cleaned from the bottom of the wetwell. Pump No. 2 was out of service. 3. The Partners Cove Lift Station pump discharge is leaking between the wetwell and the valve pit. The surrounding ground is saturated with raw sewage and the ground is beginning to subside. This potential SSO situation should be addressed immediately. Additionally,there is no Pump No. 2 installed in the station. All lift station and manhole evaluation forms prepared from our onsite evaluation are attached to this letter to assist in addressing the issues identified. We recommend your office review these forms and address the Packet Page -1065- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. deficiencies noted as soon as possible to ensure the safe operation of your wastewater treatment and collection system. Please let us know if any of the documentation we received from the City is original and needs to be returned. We will retain all other information in our files should the situation change regarding potential CWSRF funding, and will look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the future. We appreciate the time you and your staff dedicated to assist us in this process, and as previously mentioned, FRWA is committed to assisting our members wherever possible. Sincerely, Willliam F.

City of Everglades City, Collier County, Florida Water and Wastewater Utility System A briefing to consider possible risk April 4, 2016 Prepared for: G. George Yilmaz, Ph.D., P.E. Public Utilities Department Collier County Government Prepared by: Ronald E. Benson, Jr., Ph.D., P.E. Senior Vice President/Principal Hole Montes, Inc. 950 Encore Way Naples, Florida 34110 Packet Page -1067- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. Executive Summary Collier County Public Utilities contracted with Hole Montes, Inc. to prepare an overview of the major issues/risks which a governmental entity might be faced with in the event they were to become responsible for the City of Everglades City Utility system. The scope of this assignment is rather limited and the intent was the findings reported herein would be at the order of magnitude level of detail based on the information sources provided by the County. If further consideration is deemed warranted, then an assessment of the utility system would need to be performed in order to assess the condition, future service life of existing systems, and potential capacity of existing systems to serve future customers, etc. One major consideration in this sort of overview of major issues/risks is, in the event Collier County were to be the entity taking over this utility, that it is the County's standard requirement that utility systems are required to be brought up to County standards as a condition of acceptance. It is understood that, in general, the City of Everglades City did not construct nor has maintained their system to this standard. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that a significant cost would be associated with bringing the system up to the County standards. Another major consideration is that two of the four communities served by the City of Everglades City water system are not currently served by the sanitary sewer system. It is believed that, in general, the existing homes in these areas are likely contributing to pollution of the environment surrounding them through wastewater percolating from septic tank drain fields. In addition, it may be difficult for vacant lots in these communities to be permitted for new on- site treatment/disposal systems. It may also be possible that Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) or other agencies may at some time mandate connection of these onsite systems to a central sanitary sewer system. While the past and current enforcement actions by FDEP against the City of Everglades City may have moved forward slowly over the years, due to the limited financial ability of the City of Everglades City, it is likely that Collier County would not be given as much understanding and time. A major consideration for potable water systems is the ability to provide sufficient fire protection for the communities being served. While, the ability of the existing fire hydrants to supply a minimum level of fire protection is uncertain, it is likely that many of the water lines may be of smaller size than would be permitted today. It is unlikely that Collier County government could overlook such shortcomings in the ability of the existing water system to meet current fire protection standards which are being applied throughout the rest of the County. Due to the limited scope of this engagement and rather short time available to perform this overview of major issues/risks, the format of this report is to present a series of items which were able to be discovered using the documents provided to Hole Montes, Inc. by Collier County which were supplemented by documents Hole Montes was able to obtain from FDEP, Big Cypress Basin, as well as through an internet search using Google.com. (A copy of these documents have been provided.) The only on-site investigation of any sort consisted of a windshield survey in order to confirm the understanding of the utility system which was otherwise obtained by the various written materials. Neither record drawings, nor inventory list of major system components, were made available for the existing utility system. The most recent Water and Wastewater Master Plan prepared for the City of Everglades City was obtained and did not include such detailed information, so estimating lengths of pipelines of unknown 1 Packet Page -1068- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 size,material of construction, or age was necessary and is only an order of magnitude estimate of the system's major components. It was deemed that in the event Collier County were to take over this system that conditions such as overflow of untreated or partially treated wastewater to the environment simply could not be allowed. This is the standard which Collier County Public Utilities applies throughout their system and the standard expected by FDEP. Therefore, in situations where such problems have been reported in the past by FDEP and other agencies, the direction has been taken to assume that whatever is needed to remediate such problems will be required as a minimum. The existing water system is estimated to supply potable water to approximately eight hundred residential housing units (single family, multi-family, mobile homes) plus approximately six hundred RV/Park Model type housing units in denser park-type setting having private water distribution and sanitary sewer collection systems. Based on the assumptions provided herein, it is assumed that approximately five hundred additional residential housing units may be served by this water utility through build-out (with an associated growth in commercial customers on the order of 20 to 30 percent). The existing sanitary sewer system is estimated to serve approximately five hundred residential housing units plus approximately six hundred RV/Park Model type housing units. It is assumed that the system will be expanded to serve all of Plantation Island and all of Chokoloskee accounting for an additional eight hundred residential housing units added to the sanitary sewer system through build-out (with an associated growth in commercial customers thru buildout on the order of 20 to 30 percent). No attempt to estimate the rate of population growth or timing for extending sanitary sewer service to existing areas is included in this briefing. The following is an order of magnitude estimate of costs which may be reasonably anticipated in the event that the City of Everglades City system was to be expanded and upgraded as identified herein. Based on the limited review and analysis, which constituted the scope of this work assignment, the following breakdown of potential future expenditures is provided below. The higher end of the range for each major system component assumes both build-out of the system as well providing a system meeting standards typical of those for the Collier County Public Utilities system. It is likely these expenditures could be phased over a ten year period, although no attempt to consider priorities has been included at this early stage. The costs provided herein has been divided into ten major categories and an order of magnitude range of potential costs necessary to address likely issues/risks was prepared for each. ➢ Water Supply$0.5 million to $1 million ➢ Water Treatment$1 million to $2.5 million ➢ Water Transmission$2 million to $5 million ➢ Water Distribution$3 million to $8 million ➢ Wastewater Collection$5 million to $9 million ➢ Wastewater Transmission$2 million to $5 million ➢ Wastewater Treatment$10 million to $12 million ➢ Wastewater Reuse$1.5 million to $2.5 million ➢ Wastewater Disposal$1 million to $6 million ➢ Telemetry and Control$2 million to $4 million Range of Total Potential Cost$30 million to $55 million 2 Packet Page -1069- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. Overview of the City of Everglades City's Water and Wastewater System Customer Base TetraTech prepared a Water Management System Master Plan for the City of Everglades City sometime during 2010. This report was presented to the Big Cypress Basin sometime in early 2011 along with a request for a grant to assist with funding construction of water supply wells. The following is a summary prepared from this report with regard to identifying the service area and major components of the City of Everglades City's Water and Wastewater System [here after will be referred to as City's W/WW System]. ITEM: The City's W/WW System provides water and wastewater service to the residents of the City of Everglades City. ITEM: The City's W/WW System provides water and wastewater service to a portion of the residents of community of Copeland. ITEM: The City's W/WW System provides water service to the residents of the community of Plantation Island. ITEM: The City's W/WW System provides water service to the residents of the community of Chokoloskee Island and provides wastewater service to a portion of the residents. ITEM: In 2010, potable water needs within the City's W/WW System were met using wells drawing from the surficial aquifer [shallow] which at the time were identified as "not able to meet current drinking water regulations for disinfection and disinfection by products." ITEM: Reclaimed water from the treatment of wastewater generated within the City's W/WW System was "utilized throughout the City for irrigation of medians and residential lawns." ITEM: The City's W/WW System consists of a low pressure wastewater collection system. ITEM: The "existing wastewater treatment facility is in need of extensive repairs." ITEM: Although the City's W/WW System "does not currently serve all areas of Plantation Island, Copeland and Chokoloskee Island, all of these areas were included in the demand projections for planning purposes." The estimates for the population within the City's W/WW System were between 1,367 and 1,436 people in 2005, between 1,523 and 1,561 people for 2010, and between 1,616 and 1,767 for 2015. ITEM: "A detailed land use and parcel analysis was completed to verify the existing and build out populations" for the City's W/WW System and are summarized below from the TetraTech report [Table 2-2 on page 2-4]. 3 Packet Page -1070- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 Existing Single Existing Mobile Total Residential Area Family Homes Housing Units Chokoloskee 170 300 470 Everglades City 250 130 380 Copeland 85 --- 85 Plantation 140 --- 140 TOTAL 645 430 1,075 ITEM: The TetraTech report suggested that the combination of 1,075 residential housing units, 2.08 persons per housing unit, and 33%unoccupied housing units (per 2000 census) accounts for an existing population of 1,475 persons which is very similar to the population estimates they reported previously. ITEM: The permanent population was adjusted by adding 20% in order to estimate the total of permanent and seasonal residents. In addition, an in-fill rate was assumed for the vacant lots, resulting in the projected total of permanent and seasonal population to be estimated- as summarized below per the TetraTech report [Table 2-4 on page 2-5]. Year Permanent plus Seasonal Population 2010 1,770 persons 2015 2,003 persons 2020 2,266 persons 2025 2,563 persons 2030 2,900 persons ITEM: [This population appears to be inflated.] Appendix A provides what appears to be information taken from a Water Use Permit application which seems to have used a population served for the water system of between 2,648 and 2,678 persons between 1999 and 2009 [table 9 on page 10 of Appendix A]. ITEM: Appendix A provides a month by month summary of "net quantity of finished water produced" for the period January 2009 thru January 2010. The monthly average finished water was between a low of 159,100 gallons per day (September 2009) and a high of 272,200 gallons per day (April 2009). The annual average was about 203,000 gallons per day or 74 million gallons per year [Refer to table 4 on page 4 of Appendix A]. 4 Packet Page -1071- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. ITEM: Divide the maximum monthly flow (272,200 gallons per day in April) by the 2010 total of permanent and seasonal population (1,770 people) yeilds 154 gallons per person per day. Divide the minimum monthly flow (159,100 gallons per day in September) by the 2010 permanent population (1,475 people) yeilds 108 gallons per person per day. The higher flow per capita during tourist season may be due to the influence of day-tourists visiting attractions (boating, fishing, etc.). TetraTech prepared a Utility Revenue Review for the City of Everglades City dated June 2011. The following is a summary prepared from this report with regard to identifying the service area and major components of the City's W/WW System. ITEM: "The City of Everglades City system provides service to the City, Plantation Island, Chokoloskee and Copeland." The 2000 Census population was provided by TetraTech [Attachment C]. Area Population (2000 Census) Everglades City 479 Plantation Island 202 Chokoloskee 404 Copeland 32 TOTAL 1,117 It appears that this 2000 population of 1,117 should be compared to the 2010 population of 1,475 provided in the 2010 TetraTech report as identified above. ITEM: The FY 2009 actual revenues reported for the City of Everglades City utility system were total Water Charges of$336,432/year and total Sewer Charges of $324,380, exclusive of various fees [page 3 of 13]. ITEM: The current [at the time of the June 2011 report] typical water bill for the City of Everglades City was represented as being$13.00 per month, with each typical customer reported as using less than 3,000 gallons per month, which is the base rate charged for a residential customer [page 9 of 13]. The base charge for commercial customers was also reported as $13.00 per month. The consumption charge for water was reported as$4.00 per 1,000 gallons for both residential and commercial customers (for consumption greater than 3,000 gallons per month). ITEM: If we assume that there are approximately 1,000 total water customers and each is charged $13.00 per month then we get a total of [1,000 customers] x [$13.00/month] x [12 months/year] = $156,000/year. This would suggest that the revenue generated from the consumption charge would be the difference between total revenue of$336,432/year and $156,000, or approximately$180,000 per year. At the rate of $4.00 per 1,000 gallons, this is equal to about 45 million 5 Packet Page-1072- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 gallons per year billed above the amount included in the minimum charge of$13.00 per month. Assuming that approximately 300 customers out of a total 1,000 customers use over the 3,000 gallons per month minimum level then we might assume that these 300 customers are using an average on the order of 16,000 gallons per month, while the other 700 customers used on the order of 3,000 gallons per month. Without any details, this is the best we can do in estimating the possible number of customers served by this utility and consumption for a typical customer. This calculation was only done in order to attempt to better understand the number of customers served by the utility system. ITEM: The current [at the time of the June 2011 report] typical sewer bill for the City of Everglades City was represented as being $11.00 per month, which was the flat rate charged for each residential customer regardless of water usage [page 9 of 13]. Commercial customers are charged$18.00 per month plus $4.25 per 1,000 gallons for the first 5,000 gallons of water usage and then only$0.60 per 1,000 gallons for water usage above that. Based on the limited information available, it is difficult to understand the likely relationship between reported annual sanitary sewer system revenues, and the likely number of sewer customers. Conclusions: The following can be concluded from the information summarized above. Existing housing units (2015), based on review of aerial photos and tax maps, plus windshield survey were estimated. Housing units are considered to be single family, multi-family and mobile homes (not in high density parks). RV/Park Models are those which appear to be in a high density park which is likely to have a centralized system of private water/sewer connections for the park. Future units were estimated for areas which either have previously platted vacant lots or areas with a reasonable possibility of future development. These estimates have been provided for use in estimating size of the utility system in the order of magnitude costs to upgrade and expand the system. Future Housing Units RV/Park Models Housing Total Units Everglades City 400 190 250 840 Chokoloskee 160 420 100 680 Plantation 140 0 100 240 Copeland 100 0 40 140 TOTAL 800 610 490 1,900 ➢ At this point, no information has been found to suggest how many customer connections there are to the City's water system and wastewater system. The revenue collected versus the suggestion that most customers are residential and using minimal quantities of water does not necessarily work out as we understand these statements and financial data. This is especially the case for sewer revenues and rates. Regardless, we might estimate 6 Packet Page -1073- April 4,2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. that the water system may have on the order of 1,000 customers and sewer system may have on the order of 600 customers. No conclusions have been made regarding existing and potential future water and sewer rates, other than a previous report by TetraTech indicates that rates were too low to support the expense of operating the existing system and that considerably higher rates may not be able to support likely levels of future debt service which will be needed to upgrade the system to meet minimum regulatory standards. ➢ It seems reasonable to assume that the City's water system may be serving a community with a total permanent and seasonal population on the order of 1,750 people. ➢ It seems reasonable to assume that the City's water system may be expanded to eventually serve as many as approximately 3,000 people (total of permanent and seasonal population). ➢ The typical residential customer is likely using less than 3,000 gallons per month of water and living in either manufactured housing or a mobile home. In some.cases, the density of these housing units is rather high, although the service area is rather spread out over four generally independent communities which are tied together by water and wastewater transmission systems based on a centralized water treatment facility and centralized wastewater treatment facility. These backbone water and wastewater transmission lines are critically important for a variety of reasons. -Remainder of page intentionally left blank- 7 Packet Page -1074- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 Overview of the City of Everglades City's Water and Wastewater System—Infrastructure Water System TetraTech prepared a Water Management System Master Plan for the City of Everglades City sometime during 2010. This report provided information regarding the major infrastructure comprising the City's W/WW System. ITEM: The City's water system "provides service to the City of Everglades City, Chokoloskee, Plantation Island, and parts of Copeland." [page 3-1] ITEM: [This statement is for the previously existing situation.] "The existing system consists of a water treatment plant located in Copeland that includes three water supply wells, a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, aeration, and chloramination. The existing water treatment facility is rated for a maximum daily demand of 0.504 MGD." [page 3-1] ITEM: "From the main water treatment plant, water is pumped approximately 7 miles through an existing 8-inch PVC water main to the City of Everglades City. The City has a water booster station located in the City of Everglades City that includes a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, chloramination and high service pumps." [page 3-1] ITEM: There were a number of deficiencies identified for the water system based on an inspection by TetraTech in April 2010. These deficiencies are not repeated here as a number of them have already been addressed (referred to as Phase I and Phase II). ITEM: In addition to what later became known and Phase I (wells) and Phase II (water treatment plant) improvements, TetraTech identified a category they called "Maintenance Improvements... In addition, it is recommended that the CIP include $500,000 every five years for water system maintenance or renewal and replacement projects. Typically these types of capital projects would be grant funded or financed in 3-5 year increments." The list of example projects suggest that the portions of the existing water treatment plant and booster pump station which were being utilized along with the Phase I and Phase II improvements are in need of significant repairs and due to financial limitations were addressed by spreading a total of$2,000,000 over a period of twenty years. [page 8-4] FDEP Permit Number 315455-001-WC was issued on January 31, 2013 to upgrade the existing water treatment plant. ITEM: "Upgrade to the existing water treatment plant. A new facility with enhanced treatment is needed because of poor well water quality and poor finished water quality. This project will add new treatment facilities including new Nanofiltration (NF) process trains, control system, chemical feed systems and interconnecting piping to the two new raw water wells." 8 Packet Page -1075- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. ITEM: "The maximum day operation capacity of the NF plant is 465,000 gpd and consists of the following." 1. New sulfuric acid feed system 2. New scale inhibitor feed system 3. Two cartridge filters 4. Two membrane feed pumps 5. Dual Nanofiltration(NF) system (175 gpm each) 6. New hypochlorite feed system 7. New ammonium sulfate feed system 8. New sodium hydroxide feed system 9. New concentrate equalization tank (15,000 gallons) with pump (100 gpm) and air gap between the tank and the Carnestown lift station. 10. Existing aerator with storage tank (500,000 gallons) and dual high service pumps (capacity of 350 gpm each)will be part of the new facility. 11. The facility is located at 15414 Janes Scenic Drive in Copeland. ITEM: "Following completion of the water treatment facility improvements, it is recommended that the City of Everglades City water system be interconnected with the Lee Cypress Co-op. The Lee Cypress water system serves approximately 250 homes and is not in compliance with drinking water regulations." Lee Cypress Co-op Water System — FDEP Monthly Operation Report for PWSs Treating Raw Ground Water... ITEM: The monthly operation report for Lee Cypress Co-op water system [PWS Identification Number: 5110058] for the month of February 2016 was obtained from FDEP. It identifies a total population served of 250 people and a total flow treated of 292,218 gallons over 29 days, or an average of 10,000 gallons per day. ITEM: The per capita water consumption of 40 gallons per day per person is on the lower end of the spectrum, but to put into perspective would be equal to 2,400 gallons per month for a household of two people and is on the same order of magnitude reported for the City of Everglades City water system of less than 3,000 gallons per month per residential connection. Audit of City of Everglades City Grant Agreement, SFWMD, dated June 12, 2014, identifies the Phase II Water Treatment Plant project and funding sources. ITEM: "The District entered into a grant agreement for $750,000 with the City of Everglades City on January 25, 2014, to cost share in Phase II of a Water Supply System Improvement Project." [page 1] ITEM: "The City of Everglades City also received a commitment of$2.3 million from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for the Phase II portion of the project." [page 1] 9 Packet Page -1076- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 ITEM: "Phase I consisted of planning and constructing two well pumps and connecting the new wells at the existing water treatment plant." [page 1] ITEM: "Phase II primarily involves the design and construction of a new filtration membrane system and a concentrate disposal pipeline to the City of Everglades City wastewater collection system." [page 1] ITEM: "Phase I has been completed and Phase II of the project is in process." [page 1] ITEM: "Our review of various procurement documents indicated that the City of Everglades City evaluated four contracts for Phase II construction and awarded the contract to DN Higgins for $2.45 million, the lowest responsive and responsible bidder." [page 6] A telephone call to an employee of DN Higgins confirmed the following: ITEM: The project consisted of the construction of a new water treatment facility at the current location, along with the upgrading of two wastewater lift stations (Copeland and Carnestown), and miscellaneous repairs to the wastewater treatment plant(aeration basin and clarifier). ITEM: Following the telephone call, and consideration of various other documents, it appears that the upgrades to the two wastewater lift stations was likely necessary to increase the capacity for transporting wastewater flow from Copeland to Carnestown to the City of Everglades City in order to handle the additional flow generated by the new water treatment plant concentrate [estimated here as about 15 percent of the finished water produced each day]. Completion of the new Wells and Water Treatment Plant construction projects per FDEP permit. ITEM: FDEP letter of June 21, 2013 acknowledging completion of the two drinking water wells and granting of request to place the wells into operation. ITEM: A Certification of Construction Completion and request for clearance to place permitted PWS components into operation form was prepared by Professional Engineer, Amon Rony Joel, dated November 20, 2014, and submitted to FDEP for the Water Treatment Plant project. ITEM: FDEP letter of December 8, 2014 acknowledging receipt of certification that the water treatment plant was completed in accordance with Permit Number 315455- 001-WC dated January 30, 2013. A Compliance Assistance Offer letter was sent by FDEP to The Honorable Sammy Hamilton, Mayor, on January 5, 2015. ITEM: A Sanitary Survey Inspection Report for inspection on December 5, 2014 was sent along with an offer of assistance in resolving possible violations. The 10 Packet Page -1077- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. Sanitary Survey included eleven "areas of concern" and two "recommendations." [pages 5 and 6] ITEM: Item #1 under "areas of concern" for the new water treatment plant was "It was stated that the recirculation pumps are currently not in operation... Please have these pumps repaired or replaced. [page 5] ITEM: Item#2 under"areas of concern" for the new water treatment plant was "The high service pumps #3 and #4 are nonfunctional at the booster station... Please repair or replace the pumps/controllers. [page 5] Windshield survey conducted on March 24, 2016. ITEM: Viewed from outside the fence, the Water Treatment Plant condition appears as would be expected based on the above statements regarding work recently having been completed. ITEM: Lee Cypress Co-op Water Treatment Plant was being attended by an individual [likely the operator] at the time we drove by. ITEM: There were fire hydrants generally throughout the Copeland area. There were fire hydrants generally throughout the City of Everglades City. There were a limited number of fire hydrants in Plantation Island. There were a limited number of fire hydrants in Chokoloskee. While no information was reviewed regarding the size of the potable water lines in these areas, it is anticipated that many of these fire hydrants may have limited flow capacity with the limitation being the size of water line providing water to them. Conclusions: ➢ It appears possible that in many areas the size of water lines may not be sufficient to meet today's fire protection needs (Collier County Development Standards). No review of record drawings or system schematics was performed. ➢ There are a large number of additional lots for which water service is likely to be needed in the future. Wastewater System TetraTech prepared a Water Management System Master Plan for the City of Everglades City sometime during 2010. This report provided information regarding the major infrastructure comprising the City's W/WW System. ITEM: "The Everglades City wastewater treatment system provides service to the incorporated areas of Everglades City and to portions of Copeland and Chokaloskee. Plantation Island is not served by the Everglades City wastewater system; however, because the residents of Plantation Island utilize septic tanks, extending wastewater service to this area would be a benefit to the region." [page 4-1] 11 Packet Page -1078- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 ITEM: "The wastewater collection system includes approximately 245 grinder pump stations in the City of Everglades City, approximately 5 grinder pump stations in Chokoloskee, and two master pump stations (one in Chokoloskee and one in Copeland). All existing grinder pumps were manufactured by E/One, and all have a similar configuration with a check valve in the wetwell. Approximately fourteen (14) of the existing grinder pump stations are duplex and all other are simplex design. The collection system is fairly new and is generally in good condition." [page 4-1] Florida Rural Water Association—Undated letter from William F. Archebelle, Fiscal Sustainability Analyst, to Mayor Sammy Hamilton, City of Everglades City. ITEM: "There appears to be minimal gravity sewer in the collection system and our analysis of onsite manholes showed them to be in relatively good condition. Analysis of the actual gravity mains should be conducted via televising and smoke testing, but relatively little infiltration or inflow was noted during the evaluation of the gravity manholes." ITEM: "The collection system evaluation indicated that the majority of the lift stations in the City, with the exception of the following, are operating with only one functional pump or only one pump in actually place: • Everglades Isle(Both stations with two functional pumps) • Seaboard Villas • Barron Station • The Elementary School • Lake Cypress" ITEM: "FDEP regulations require that all lift stations have a minimum of two (2) operable pumps to provide redundant service should one pump fail. Not addressing this situation could eventually result in additional FDEP compliance action. A detailed analysis of each lift station in the City is included in the attached evaluation forms with specific information on missing or failed pumps and other issues that may need to be addressed." [No evaluation forms were provided with this letter so none were able to be reviewed.] ITEM: "A list of stations with major issues other than failed or missing pumps is included below as these facilities have the potential for , or evidence of, Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) events: 1. The Chokoloskee Island Master Lift Station was out of service, with all power tripped to the control panel. It is our understanding from discussions with field personnel that this is not an unusual occurrence. With no power to the control panel to activate the high water alarm the station was overflowing directly to the adjacent waterway, resulting in a Sanitary Sewer Overflow event (SSO). We informed your personnel that this event must be reported to the FDEP and appropriate remediation actions be taken in accordance with FDEP regulations. 12 Packet Page -1079- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. When power was restored and the station pumps exercised, it was found that one pump is out of service. The second pump needs to be pulled, repaired, and returned to service as soon as possible. FRWA recommends the control panel for the station be repaired at the earliest opportunity, as failure of the station results in direct introduction of sewage into the environment in violation of State Law. We also recommend stairs or a ladder and platform be installed to provide access to the control panel as it is elevated for flood protection and is too high to be accessed from the ground. 2. The Estuary North Lift Station invert does not appear to be properly sealed into the wetwell and shows evidence of groundwater infiltration. The invert should be sealed, and any sand/soils should be cleaned from the bottom of the wetwell. Pump No. 2 was out of service. 3. The Partners Cove Lift Station pump discharge is leaking between the wetwell and the valve pit. The surrounding ground is saturated with raw sewage and the ground is beginning to subside. This potential SSO situation should be addressed immediately. Additionally, there is no Pump No. 2 installed in the station." ITEM: "We recognize the WWTF is near the end of its service life and ultimately needs to be replaced, but until that time, you are still required to operate in accordance with Florida Administrative Code and FDEP regulations. With that in mind, a list of issues noted at the plant, and potential regulatory issues are as follows:" ➢ "During our site visit it was observed that there is a significant lack of maintenance record keeping at the treatment plant. Several tanks and related equipment have deteriorated to the point of potential failure; including the aeration basins, clarifiers, and digesters as well as traveling bridge filter in which was out of service. Several blowers were no longer functioning and the Emergency generator does not appear to be operable. Much of the noted deterioration appears to be a direct result of a lack of property onsite maintenance." ➢ "It was also observed that recordkeeping was very poor. Daily log entries were very minimal as it pertains to operational controls, adjustments, and maintenance of the facility. All records were improperly filed in a shipping box without any regard to organization. The laboratory chemical tracking and inventory does not appear to be performed or documented." ➢ "...The Operating Protocols has not been update nor submitted along with the renewal for permit application." ➢ "...The operation and maintenance records are not being documented and needs to be updated and submitted along with the permit renewal." ➢ "...FAC 62-600.405 Capacity and Analysis Report has not been updated and submitted." 13 Packet Page-1080- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 ITEM: "The wastewater treatment facility reuse system is not currently operating in compliance with State standards as required by Florida Department of Environmental Protection Rule 62-610." ➢ "...The sand filters were not in operation and are not functioning. As part of the reuse system filtration must be met to comply with TSS results below 5.0 mg/1. At the time of the visit the turbidity reading was over 20.0 NTU, which would equate to well over a 5.0 mg/1 TSS." ➢ "...Continuous monitoring of turbidity shall be applied to the operating protocols as a means of controlling operation of treatment facilities to ensure that only acceptable quality reclaimed water is released to the reuse system or to system storage." ➢ "...The proposed monitoring equipment, chlorine, pH and turbidity shall be calibrated according to the requirements." ITEM: "Parts of the treatment system (specifically the sand filters and several blowers) were not in service. The permittee of any reuse or land application system shall be responsible notification for periods of inactivation or abandonment of equipment. The permittee shall give the Department written notice at least 60 days before inactivation or abandonment of a reuse or land application system and shall specify what steps will be taken to safeguard public health and safety." ITEM: "Cross-connection control program requirements are contained in Chapter 62- 555, F.A.C. (c). As part of the permit application, the reclaim water systems must comply with a cross connection control plan. This plan is developed to ensure that there is no potential for any reclaim water or nondrinking water wells to connect with the drinking water distribution system." Windshield survey conducted on March 24, 2016. ITEM: The wastewater lift station at Carnestown has a new generator and appears consistent(without entry)with the statement by DN Higgins employee that the lift station was rebuilt recently. ITEM: The wastewater lift station at Copeland, near the Lee Cypress Co-op Water Treatment Plant, has a new generator and appears consistent (without entry) with the statement by DN Higgins employee that the lift station was rebuilt recently. ITEM: There is a second wastewater lift station in Copeland and it has a generator. ITEM: It appears that portions of the City of Everglades City are still provided collection service by gravity sewers and lift stations. No lift stations were accessed and no manholes opened as this was a windshield survey only. ITEM: It appears that there are numerous grinder pump stations (green access covers) throughout the City of Everglades City with a single pump station serving each single family home in most cases. 14 Packet Page -1081- April 4,2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. ITEM: It appears that there are numerous grinder pump stations (green access covers) throughout the City of Everglades City with one pump station serving a single commercial establishment. It was not obvious whether or not the size of the pumps or wetwell of the pump station for larger commercial establishments was any different from the standard pump station typically used for a single family residence. ITEM: It appears that there are numerous grinder pump stations (green access covers) throughout the City of Everglades City with one pump station serving a group (number unknown) of RV units or mobile homes. ITEM: It appears that there are numerous grinder pump stations (green access covers) throughout the City of Everglades City with one pump station serving a motel or similar business which would likely have a large number of plumbing fixtures. ITEM: It appears that there are a number of grinder pump stations (green access covers) throughout the City of Everglades City with a single pump station serving a multi- family building or group of buildings which may have as many as eight to sixteen (possibly more) residential units which would likely have a large number of plumbing fixtures. ITEM: Visual observation seems to confirm statements made by others that Plantation Island is not served by sanitary sewers of any kind and that this is an area of high population density with high water table being served by septic tank systems. ITEM: Visual observation seems to confirm statements made by others that most of Chokoloskee is not served by sanitary sewers of any kind and that much of this is an area of high population density with high water table being served by septic tank systems. Conclusions: ➢ It appears that some areas may have appropriate level of sanitary sewer collection system, while other areas appear to possibly have sub-standard level of sanitary sewer collection system. Of significant concern, it appears that a single grinder pump station (believed to only have a small wetwell and single pump) may be serving more than the typical single family residence or small cluster of residences more typical of these systems. ➢ Once the number of fixtures being provided service by a single grinder pump station (typical of that used for a single family residence) reaches a certain level, it is suggested that a single pump grinder pump station is no longer sufficient. [The current analysis did not attempt to determine a regulatory limit or recommendation in this regard, although it appears that in many cases this is a concern]. ➢ FDEP has a guidance and standards manual specifically for non-conventional/alternative sewer systems which includes pressure sewers. It is suggested this manual, as well as meeting with FDEP, eventually be used to assess the existing system with regard to reliability and whether or not the City's system meets minimum standards. ➢ No attempt has been made in this very limited assignment to quantify the degree of the problems with the existing system, although it is believed, from review of various 15 Packet Page -1082- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 documents that many of the lift stations throughout the collection system are in need of major repair or replacement. ➢ There are two large areas — Plantation Island and Chokoloskee — where there are no existing sanitary sewer system and where such a system will almost certainly be needed at some point in time. Summary of Need for Significant Upgrades and Expansion Water System—Transmission System Upgrades ➢ The size and capacity, as well as the condition, of the existing transmission pipeline system which interconnects Copeland, City of Everglades City, Plantation Island and Chokoloskee is unknown. ➢ In order to meet future demands as well as eventually provide minimum fire flows throughout the system, it is assumed that as much as approximately 60,000 to 70,000 lineal feet of water transmission mains may eventually be needed. This may be replacement of older pipelines or paralleling of existing pipelines. ➢ It is assumed that installation of fire hydrants to meet Collier County development standards will be needed,possibly resulting in larger water main size requirements. ➢ Upgrades to the City of Everglades City water booster pump station are anticipated as eventually being needed. This assumes that the combination of sufficient upgrades to the transmission system and upgrades to this pump station would be sufficient to provide the necessary flow and pressure to Plantation Island and Chokoloskee to serve both potable • and fire protection needs. Water System—Distribution System Upgrades ➢ The size and condition of the existing distribution system pipelines is unknown. ➢ It is assumed, that at some point, much of the existing system may need to be replaced. This would include fire hydrants, water serve meter assemblies, and back flow prevention devices. Water System—Water Supply Upgrades ➢ Two additional water supply wells will likely eventually be required in order to handle future anticipated needs as well as minimum level of reliability. Water Treatment Plant Upgrades ➢ One additional water treatment process train will likely eventually be needed in order to handle future projected needs, while also providing the ability to meet an acceptable percentage of anticipated demand with one process train offline. ➢ Upgrades are anticipated to be required to a variety of other process equipment as well as all electrical systems in order to meet Collier County typical standards. ➢ Computerized control and monitoring system typical of Collier County standards will likely be required. 16 Packet Page -1083- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. Upgrades to pressure sewer system > Installation of additional simplex grinder pump stations (or upgrading to a duplex pump station) is anticipated as being required for areas where it appears that too many residential units are connected to a single grinder pump station. > Addition of telemetry system to each grinder pump station is anticipated in order to send all alarms to a centralized monitoring location. > In order to meet FDEP requirements for pressurized sewer systems, sufficient spare parts (grinder pumps and accessories) will need to be purchased and maintained. FDEP requires a minimum of 3% spare grinder pumps for systems which use simplex pumping units, as well as sufficient maintenance staff to be able to change out a failed grinder pump on short notice. > It is assumed that for those areas of the sanitary sewer system which remain on gravity type sewer system, the sewer lines may eventually require slip-lining, manholes lined, and significant upgrades to the existing conventional lift stations. This may include new pumps, controls, and telemetry systems. Alternatively, the gravity system may eventually be abandoned and new pressure sewer system installed as replacement. > Installation of pressure sewer systems to serve those areas which currently do not have sanitary sewer service. It is assumed that in single family neighborhoods that each grinder pump station would serve a single household or at most two households with the unit placed on the common lot-line. It is assumed that in multi-family neighborhoods that each grinder pump station may be able to serve up to four housing units. [This would need to be verified based on analysis of fixture counts and a County standard regarding use of simplex grinder pump stations and consistent with FDEP rules]. Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement > The existing wastewater treatment plant has reached the end of its useful life. An entirely new treatment facility is needed. It is assumed that the effluent disposal method will be reuse of reclaimed water on residential lots, as well as along City streets, at the airport, at the School, and at parks. The effluent quality and system reliability will be limiting factors. > Due to the presence of adjacent environmentally sensitive areas, it is suggested that the wastewater treatment facility be designed for some degree of nitrogen removal as well as have the ability to include some degree of phosphorus removal if it is ever required by FDEP. > In order to provide for the highest quality reclaimed water possible, the use of MBR technology to provide assurances of meeting TSS, turbidity, and coliform permit requirements for reuse may be the necessary standard. This type of higher cost system may also be necessary due to site space limitations. > The proposed wastewater treatment facility would need to include sufficient flow equalization in order to minimize facility overload during rainy season events typical of coastal communities. > The proposed wastewater treatment facility would include a minimum one-day volume of flow Reject Storage Tank (consider two-day reject storage tank) plus a minimum of one- day volume of flow Reuse Storage Tank (consider two-day reuse storage tank) in order to operate the facility while providing assurances of always meeting public health standards for water going to the reuse system. 17 Packet Page -1084- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 Reclaimed Water System ➢ The reclaimed water system should include a minimum three-day volume of flow storage pond (consideration should be made for five day storage pond) to allow for storage of reclaimed water produced on rain days and periods of lower rates of residential irrigation on lawns of low lying elevation areas. (The FDEP rules provide for the methodology for assessment of the number of days of storage volume necessary.) ➢ Reclaimed water pump station should be sized to meet projected peak irrigation demands (consideration should be made for the ability of pumping the maximum daily flow over a six to eight hour period of irrigation each night/early morning). ➢ Install new reclaimed water pipelines throughout the entire City of Everglades City. ➢ FDEP is likely to require a deep injection well or other alternative effluent disposal system for back-up of the reuse.system. It may be possible to install the reuse system and to demonstrate to FDEP that all of the effluent produced is utilized for irrigation. This demonstration may postpone the need for the deep injection well, although may not totally avoid having to eventually construct a deep injection well. ➢ Possibly expand the coverage area for irrigation using reclaimed water to Plantation Island or Chocoloskee in order to dispose of all reclaimed water produced during wet weather periods. This would likely require installation of an alternative water supply system to meet the dry season demand for irrigation customers. [This would be a system more similar to that of Port of the Islands which is a 100%reuse system.] -Remainder of page intentionally left blank- 18 Packet Page -1085- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. Order of magnitude Estimate of Costs to Upgrade and Expand the existing systems. The existing water system is estimated to supply potable water to approximately eight hundred residential housing units plus approximately six hundred RV/Park Model type housing units. Based on the assumptions provided herein, it is assumed that approximately five hundred additional residential housing units may be served by this utility through build-out, with an associated growth in commercial customers on the order of 20 to 30 percent. The existing sanitary sewer system is estimated to serve approximately five hundred residential housing units plus approximately six hundred RV/Park Model type housing units. It is assumed that the sewer system will be expanded to serve all of Plantation Island and all of Chokoloskee accounting for an additional eight hundred residential housing units on the system through build-out, with an associated growth in commercial customers on the order of 20 to 30 percent. No attempt to estimate the rate of population growth or timing for extending sanitary sewer service to existing areas is included in this analysis. The following is an order of magnitude estimate of costs which may be reasonably anticipated in the event that the City of Everglades City system was to be expanded and upgraded as identified herein. Based on the limited review and analysis which was the scope of this work assignment, the following breakdown of potential future expenditures is provided below. The higher end of the range for each major system component assumes both build-out of the system to serve the number of customers identified above as well providing a system meeting standards typical of those for the Collier County Public Utilities system. ➢ Water Supply$ 0.5 million to $1 million Note 1 ➢ Water Treatment$ 1 million to $2.5 million Note 2 ➢ Water Transmission$ 2 million to $5 million Note 3 ➢ Water Distribution$ 3 million to $8 million Note 4 ➢ Wastewater Collection$ 6 million to $9 million Note 5 ➢ Wastewater Transmission$ 3 million to $5 million Note 6 ➢ Wastewater Treatment$10 million to $12 million Note 7 ➢ Wastewater Reuse$ 1.5 million to $2.5 million Note 8 ➢ Wastewater Disposal$ 1 million to $6 million Note 9 ➢ Telemetry and Control$ 2 million to $4 million Note 10 Range of Total Potential Cost$30 million to $55 million NOTES: 1. This assumes two new wells are installed and upgrades to the existing wells. 2. This assumes installation of one additional water treatment train along with upgrades to the remainder of components of the existing system,including possible expansion of the building and electrical systems. 3. This assumes the possibility of eventual replacement or paralleling of the pipelines forming the "back- bone"system connecting the four communities anywhere from approximately one-third of the length to the entire length of the existing system. [Order of magnitude estimate of$50 per foot to cover all potential related project costs.] 4. This assumes the possibility of eventual replacement of much of the existing potable water system plus the extension of service to new customers. [Order of magnitude estimate of$6,500 per residential housing unit which is typical of costs experienced by Collier County in water system upgrades for Isle of Capri, Riverwood Estates Mobile Home,Naples Mobile Home Park, and Naples Park(including anticipated price escalation to current project costs).] Range in cost provides for predominately new customers up to projects including new customers plus major system upgrade project.] 19 Packet Page -1086- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 5. This assumes extension of sanitary sewer service to all water customers at an order of magnitude cost of$6,500 per residential housing unit using a pressurized sewer system, plus possible need to upgrade much of the old systems (both gravity and pressurized) using a pressurized sewer system with one simplex grinder pump station per house or a limited number of equivalent residential connections per simplex grinder pump station. 6. This assumes the possibility of eventual replacement or paralleling of the pipelines forming the "back- bone" system connecting the three communities currently on the sewer system plus extending service to Plantation Island. [Order of magnitude estimate of$50 per foot to cover all potential related project costs, plus the cost to upgrade existing lift stations to Collier County standards plus construction of two additional lift stations for service to new customers.] 7. This assumes that a totally new wastewater treatment plant is needed and that it will need to produce high quality reclaimed water suitable for residential irrigation as well as have low nutrient levels to minimize concerns for irrigation runoff and water percolating into the groundwater from impacting the sensitive environment surrounding the developed areas. 8. This includes extension of irrigation pipelines through the City of Everglades City, including a lined storage pond for wet weather storage. [Order of magnitude cost estimate of$50 per foot to cover all potential related project costs,plus cost to construct storage and pumping systems.] 9. This line item includes either any unforeseen systems which may be required by FDEP to assure compliance with regulatory requirements associated with effluent disposal not covered in another line item. It is possible that FDEP may require an alternative effluent disposal system such as a deep injection well. 10. The Collier County Public Utilities system incorporates a telemetry system for monitoring and control of their systems in order to provide operation of their systems. [Estimated at between$1,000 and$2,000 per customer.] -Remainder of page intentionally left blank- , 20 Packet Page -1087- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4. Some Considerations regarding 100 percent use of Reclaimed Water The Port of the Islands Community Improvement District is located approximately ten miles west of Carnestown. Geographically, this community is similar to that of Everglades City as an isolated area of development totally surrounded by natural wetlands and water. The Port of the Islands Community uses a 100% reclaimed water system (wastewater effluent and water treatment plant concentrate) for irrigation which is supplemented using raw well water. Since implementation of this system, there has never been a need to store excess reclaimed water or use an alternate means of disposal. The following observations from Port of the Islands will assist in comparing to the City of Everglades City potential effluent disposal situation. ➢ Irrigation is provided to approximately 120 developable acres of which approximately 80% currently developed. The remaining approximately 20% is currently vacant lots. Therefore, it can be estimated that approximately 96 gross acres are likely being irrigated at this time. ➢ Irrigation rates fluctuate between dry season (April) and wet season (September). Over the past few years approximately 5 million gallons of irrigation water was used during the low flow irrigation month and approximately 8 million gallons/month of irrigation water was used during a high flow irrigation month. ➢ The approximate gross irrigation factor is approximately 1,700 gallons per gross acre per day [5 million gallons/month over 96 gross acres divided by 30 days/month]. ➢ Assuming approximately one-third of gross area is irrigated, yields an approximate net irrigation factor(application rate) of approximately 5,000 gallons per net acre per day. ➢ Converting to an approximate application rate [43,560 sq. ft./acre, 7.48 gallons/cu. ft., 7 days per week, 12 inches per foot] yields approximately 1.3 inches per week for the summer wet season months. ➢ It is suggested that due to differences in development density that an approximate gross irrigation factor of approximately 1,200 gallons per gross acre per day could be used in order to estimate potential demand for reclaimed water for a residential irrigation system for the City of Everglades City. [This certainly needs to be investigated further, although should represent an order of magnitude estimate based on a similar system. The following is an estimate of potential disposal capacity using irrigation of essentially the entire city limits within the City of Everglades City. ➢ It is estimated that there are likely on the order of between 300 and 350 gross acres which may be suitable for irrigation within the City of Everglades City as development continues on currently vacant land in the City. ➢ Assuming 1,200 gallons per gross acre per day, results in potential capacity for disposal of between 360,000 and 420,000 gallons per day of reclaimed water (during summer months). This is approximately the amount of wastewater effluent (including water treatment plant concentrate) which may be expected to be generated during the off-peak season for the projected 2030 population. ➢ Since the peak tourist season corresponds with the dry season, the higher production of reclaimed water from treatment of wastewater, combined with the higher production of water treatment plant concentrate, would generally be offset with higher irrigation applications rates typical during dry season compared to wet season. 21 Packet Page -1088- 4/26/2016 16.C.4. April 4, 2016 ➢ A significant difference between the Port of the Islands system and that contemplated for the City of Everglades City system is Port of the Islands residents produce all of the reclaimed water which is available for irrigation on their own lawns and along roadsides. The system being considered here for the City of Everglades City would consist of reclaimed water produced by a population on the order of three times larger than the community over which the reclaimed water would be irrigated. This assumes that all of Copeland, Plantation Island and Chokoloskee would eventually be sewered, and irrigation using reclaimed water would only occur on property in the City of Everglades City. Therefore, we should not carry the analogy between Port of the Islands and the City of Everglades City too far at this level of analysis. ➢ In the event that the reclaimed water irrigation system was to potentially be extended to Plantation Island and/or Chokoloskee, there would likely need to be a supplemental water source developed in order to meet customer demands during the dry season. The cost of such a supplemental water system, combined with cost of extending the reuse system to more customers,may potentially offset the need for a deep injection well. ➢ For the City of Everglades City system, it is likely a significant size wet-weather reclaimed water storage pond maybe needed and may also potentially offset the need for (or defer) a deep injection well. Such a storage pond would likely only be needed during the high rainfall period each year and would likely be totally dry the remainder of the year. -Remainder of page intentionally left blank- 22 Packet Page -1089- April 4, 2016 4/26/2016 16.C.4.

Governor Jonathan P. Steverson Secretary As we have discussed, the Department has worked with Everglades City for a number of years to improve the management and operation of its wastewater utility. However, the City recently informed the Department that the City does not have the means to improve its wastewater treatment infrastructure. The Department believes that Collier County, which operates one of the best run utilities in the state, could improve significantly the utility service and quality of life in the Everglades City area. The Department is hoping that Collier County will join.with the Department in developing and implementing a solution. We have partnered well in the past, and this would be another opportunity to do so, Please contact me or Jon Iglehart ( Jon .Ic4lehart(@,,dep.state.fl.us), Director of our Fort Myers regulatory office, with any questions.

Case No.: EVERGLADES CITY Respondent. PETITION FOR ENFORCEMENT AND COMPLAINT Petitioner, the STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION (Department), files this Petition for Enforcement and Complaint against EVERGLADES CITY (City), and alleges as follows:, 1. This is a civil action for enforcement of a Consent Order (CO) pursuant to section 120.69 Florida Statutes ( "Fla. Stat. ") and a civil complaint for injunctive relief and penalties, which exceed $100,000, exclusive of interest, costs, and attorneys' fees, pursuant to sections 403.121, 403.131, 403,141, and 403,161 Fla, Stat. 2. ' This Court has jurisdiction over this action pursuant to Article V, section 5 of the Florida Constitution, and §§ 26.012, 120.69(l), 403.121, 403.131, 403.141, 403.161, and Fla, Stat. 3. Venue in this action lies in this Circuit because the subject matter of this action is located in Collier County, Florida, and because the events giving rise to this action tools place in Collier County, Florida. 4. The Department of Environmental Protection is the regulatory agency of the State of Florida, created by § 20.255, Fla. Stat., charged with the power and duty to administer and enforce Chapters 376 and 403, Fla. Stat., and the regulations promulgated thereunder in Chapter 62, Fla. Admin, Code. 5, The City is a "person" as defined by section 403.031(5), Fla. Stat. 6. On April 3, 2013, the Department and the City entered into a CO intended to address the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant (Facility) .violations. A copy of the executed CO is attached hereto as Exhibit 1. 7. Irreparable harm will result if the City continues to operate and maintain the Facility in violation of applicable rules and does not comply with the terms and conditions of Exhibit 1. 8. An inadequate remedy at law is presurned in this case because the legislature has specifically empowered the Department to request injunctive relief for the violations enumerated herein pursuant to Section 403.131, Fla. Stat. 9. The Florida legislature has specifically declared in Section 403.121, Fla. Stat. that actions brought by the Department for injunctive relief to prevent further harm to the environment are in the public interest. 10. The Department has a clear legal right to injunctive relief. The City is failing to comply with applicable -rules for operating and maintaining the Facility that is reasonably expected to be sources of soil and groundwater pollution. Section 403.131, Fla. Stat, gives DEP the authority to seek an injunction to remedy these violations. herein. i COUNT I - PETITION FOR ENFORCEMENT OF CONSENT ORDER 11.

As the wastewater Asset Management Plan is a requirement of the CWSRF funding program, it is no longer needed by the City, and we have been instructed to cease work on the Plan. Troy Cassidy and I appreciate the time you and your staff dedicated to this process, and thank you for your cooperation. This letter to outlines our findings, and provides information to assist you in addressing the issues encountered. When conducting our evaluation of the Utility, numerous issues were found in the plant and the collection system that directly impact your ability to provide safe wastewater collection and treatment as well as your ability to comply with State and Federal regulations for the same. We are providing a basic list of issues we identified while onsite for your information, and want to remind you that FRWA remains available to provide operational and other assistance to you as a member City. Our findings are outlined below and in the attached evaluation forms: Wastewater Treatment Facility: We recognize the WWTF is near the end of its service life and ultimately needs to be replaced, but until that time, you are still required to operate in accordance with Florida Administrative Code and FDEP regulations. With that in mind, a list of issues noted at the plant, and potential regulatory issues are as follows: During our site visit it was observed that there is a significantlack of maintenance record keeping at the treatment plant. Several tanks and related equipment have deteriorated to the point of potential failure; including the aeration basins, clarifiers, and digesters as well as traveling bridge filter in which was out of service. Several blowers were no longer functioning and the Emergency generator does not appear to be operable. Much of the noted deterioration appears to be a direct result of a lack of property onsite maintenance. It was also observed that recordkeeping was very poor. Daily log entries were very minimal as it pertains to operational controls, adjustments, and maintenance of the facility. All records were improperly filed in a shipping box without any regard to organization. The laboratory chemical tracking and inventory does not appear to be performed or documented. r, 1. The wastewater treatment facility reuse system is not currently operating in compliance with State standards as required by Florida Department of Environmental Protection Rule 62 -610. 2. Specific subsections within 62 -610 should have immediate action areas follows: 62- 610.320 (6) Updated Operating Protocol — The Operating Protocols has not.been update nor submitted along with the renewal for permit application. Operation and Maintenance Manual. An operation and maintenance manual or an addition to the treatment plant operation and maintenance manual or stand -alone instructional booklet, The reuse /land application system operation and maintenance instructions shall provide the operator with the Following: (A) . an adequate description and schedule of routine reclaimed water or effluent application rates and cycles involved with the system; (B) operation procedures (including any notification and reporting requirements of appropriate agencies) during adverse climatic conditions and maintenance of equipment; (C) schedules for harvesting and crop removal; routine maintenance required for the continued design performance of the system; (D) ground water monitoring procedures and schedules; (E) listings of spare parts to have on hand; (F) and any other information essential to the operation of the system in accordance with the requirements of this rule. 62- 610.320 (5) (a) Operation and Maintenance Requirements for Operating Protocol The operation and maintenance records are not being documented and needs to be updated and submitted along with the permit renewal. 1. An operating protocol is a document which describes how a domestic wastewater facility is to be operated to ensure that only reclaimed water that meets applicable standards is released to a reuse system. It is a detailed set of instructions for the operators of the facilities. It may be part of the operation and maintenance manual or it may be a separate document. 2. The operating protocol shall address the following: (A) The criteria used to make continuous determinations of the acceptability of the reclaimed water being produced. This shall include the setpoints for parameters measured by continuous on -line monitoring equipment. (B) The physical steps and procedures to be followed by the operator when substandard water is being produced. (C)The physical steps and procedures to be followed by the operator when the treatment facility returns to normal operation and acceptable quality reclaimed water is again being produced. (D) Procedures to be followed during a period when an operator is not present at the treatment facility. (E) The physical steps and procedures to be followed by the operator when the operator returns to the treatment facility following an unattended period. 62- 610.460 Treatment and disinfection (3) Filtration The sand filters were not in operation and are not functioning. As part of the reuse system filtration must be met to comply with TSS results below 5.0 mg/1. At the time of the visit the turbidity reading was over a 20.0 NTU, which would equate to well over a 5.0 mg/l TSS. Continuous monitoring of turbidity shall be applied to the operating protocols as a means of controlling operation of treatment facilities to ensure that only acceptable quality reclaimed water is released to the reuse system or to system storage. The proposed monitoring equipment, chlorine, PH and turbidity shall be calibrated according to the requirements. 62.610.463 (1), (2) Monitoring and Reporting Parts of the treatment system (specifically the sand filters and several blowers) were not in service. The permittee of any reuse or land application system shall be responsible notification for periods of inactivation or abandonment of equipment. The permittee shall give the Department written notice at least 60 days before inactivation or abandonment of a reuse or land application system and shall specify what steps will be taken to safeguard public health and safety. 3. Cross - connection control program requirements are contained in Chapter 62 -555, F.A.C. (c) As part of the permit application, the reclaim water systems must comply with a cross connection control plan This plan is developed to ensure that there is no potential for any reclaim water or non drinking water wells to connect with the drinking water distribution system. 4.

(c) As part of the permit application, the reclaim water systems must comply with a cross connection control plan This plan is developed to ensure that there is no potential for any reclaim water or non drinking water wells to connect with the drinking water distribution system. 6. FAC 62- 600.405 Capacity and Analysis Report has not been updated and submitted. Wastewater Collection System: There appears to be minimal gravity sewer in the collection system and our analysis of onsite manholes showed them to be in relatively good condition. Analysis of the actual gravity mains should be conducted via televising and smoke testing, but relatively little infiltration or inflow was noted during the evaluation of the gravity manholes. The collection system evaluation indicated that the majority of the lift stations in the city, with the exception of the following, are operating with only one functional pump or only one pump in actually place: • Everglades Isle (Both stations with two functional pumps) • Seaboard Villas • Barron Station • The Elementary School • Lake Cypress FDEP regulations require that all lift stations have a minimum of two (2) operable pumps to provide redundant service should one pump fail. Not addressing this situation could eventually result in additional FDEP compliance action. A detailed analysis of each lift station in the city is included in the attached evaluation forms with specific information on missing or failed pumps and other issues that may need to be addressed. A list of stations with major issues other than failed or missing pumps is included below as these facilities have the potential for, or evidence of, Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) events: 1. The Chokoloskee Island Master Lift station was out of service, with all power tripped to the control panel. It is our understanding from discussions with field personnel that this is not an unusual occurrence. With no power to the control panel to activate the high water alarm, the station was overflowing directly to the adjacent waterway, resulting in a Sanitary Sewer Overflow event (SSO). We informed your personnel that this event must be reported to the FDEP and appropriate remediation actions be taken in accordance with FDEP regulations. When power was restored and the station pumps exercised, it was found that one pump is out .of service. The second pump needs to be pulled, repaired, and returned to service as soon as possible. FRWA recommends the control panel for the station be repaired at the earliest opportunity, as failure of the station results in direct introduction of sewage into the environment in violation of State Law. We also recommend stairs or a ladder and platform be installed to provide access to the control panel as it is elevated for flood protection and is too high to be accessed from the ground. 2. The Estuary North Lift Station invert does not appear to be properly sealed into the wetwell and shows evidence of groundwater infiltration. The invert should be sealed, and any sand/soils should be cleaned from the bottom of the wetwell. Pump No. 2 was out of service. The Partners Cove Lift Station pump discharge is leaking between the wetwell and the valve pit. The surrounding ground is saturated with raw sewage and the ground is beginning to subside. This potential SSO situation should be addressed immediately. Additionally, there is no Pump No. 2 installed in the station. All lift station and manhole evaluation forms prepared from our onsite evaluation are attached to this letter to assist in addressing the issues identified. We recommend your office review these forms and address the deficiencies noted as soon as possible to ensure the safe operation of your wastewater treatment and collection system. Please let us know if any of the documentation we received from the City is original and needs to be returned. We will retain all other information in our files should the situation change regarding potential CWSRF funding, and will look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the future. We appreciate the time you and your staff dedicated to assist us in this process, and as previously mentioned, FRWA is committed to assisting our members wherever possible. Sincerely, Willlaam F.

Tim Banks, P.E., CWSRF John Sowersby, CWSRF Gary Williams, FRWA Troy Cassidy, FRWA EVERGLADES CITY UTILITY SYSTEM /INFRASTRUCTURE CONCEPTUAL ASSESSMENT 12 -5 -2015 WP Infrastructure Overview Plant (.160MGD) and associated collections system is in disrepair and failing. Deficiencies identified in consent order are 2 -3 years old. Assumptions are that the system has not been consistently rehabilitated or maintained since the order and the system infrastructure has further substantially degraded. Initial conceptual costs to bring the WW infrastructure system into FDEP compliance (plants, pump stations, forcemains, arvs, manholes, integrated water /wastewater /IQ meters, telemetry, reclaimed I/Q system that needs to be built throughout the service area) are approximately 32 million dollars. An additional 23 million dollars would be necessary to bring to the City's Utility infrastructure to CCWSD utility standards for conveyance as a prerequisite for Water, Wastewater, IQ Water infrastructure as a whole (please note the FDEP and EPA Rules require cross - connection control for both W/WW field operations). Conveyance of the utility system would require that the system meet current Collier County Water -Sewer District Utility Standards and follow the established conveyance process. Commitment to environmental stewardship, as well as human health, safety and welfare, suggests that the - system be rebuilt with reliability and sustainable practices at the forefront. Rate Structure and Analysis The Everglades City utility is comingled in the general fund, therefore not an enterprise fund and appears to receive support from (and competes with) the general fund to meet operational and CIP requirements. Utility bills for water and sewer service, including base and volume charges (3 TGAL) in 2010 equal $48.75 per month, representing 1.61 % of median household income (meets Fitch standards of 2.5% or below). To meet operating expense and debt service requirements (no CIP), proposed rate increases included a 40% increase FYI over FYI 1, 25% FYI over FYI and another 38% FYI over FYI 3. These "rate adjustments" would have brought the monthly utility bill for 3 TGAL to$117.74, or 3.9% of median household income (Board approved Page CCWSD rates in effect 10/1/15 = $72.34 including base charges and 3 TGAL volume charges) Because these adjustments were not economically feasible, the recommendation from TetraTech was to engage a rate consultant to perform an in -depth rate study, and float 2 new 30 -year municipal bonds to fund the CIP program (never done) and pursue grant funding (the water grant was begun by TetraTech), however, no wastewater grant funding is evident in any documents reviewed. 2 1 P a g e Backup Working Details Exhibit I - Summary of FDEP CO Current Plant Permit: .160 MGD, average annual flow, with disposal to a rapid infiltration basin, slow rate public access reuse system, surface water discharge to the Lake Placid Canal Ordered Repairs to Existing Plant • Improve protocol and enforcement for pretreatment (grease removal) • Replace calibration standards and buffers • Repair broken surge tank pump • Repair air diffusers • Repair clarifier skimmers • Repair malfunctioning flow meters • Repair rails, catwalks, ladders for safe access • Repair secondary blower • Repair digester blower • Repair clarifier • Replace VFD on the EQ pump and 3 RAS pumps • Repair auto samplers • Replace air compressor and hydropneumatic tank on the irrigation (reuse ?) system • Repair the reuse automatic diversion system Ordered Corrective Reporting • Submit application package for plant operating permit renewal • Submit corrective action reports to the FDEP every 6 months detailing status of projects being completed under order • Submit Operation and Maintenance Performance Report and Capacity Analysis Report Ordered Remedial Action • Eliminate and dismantle current surface water discharge associated with existing plant • Design a complete replacement WW treatment plant without surface water discharge • Complete an application for construction of a new plant without surface water discharge . 31 Page Oversee construction of new plant and modifications • Evaluate /Design /Repair the noncompliant effluent disposal and collections system 41 Page Exhibit 11 - Summary of Initial Remedial CIP Financials Financials (from Tetra Tech Master Plan Document) • CIP for wastewater 2014 through 2017 estimated at$6,450,000 • Financial Projections identify Net Revenue deficiencies (after debt service) through FY16 with projected wastewater rates increases of 22% in FYI and 27% in FYI (unknown as to any rates increases in place). ® Conclusion states "We now NEED FINANCIAL Support" from BCB and SFWMD • A Utility Revenue Sufficiency Review was performed by TetraTech (not a rate consultant) on behalf of SFWMD and BCB to evaluate the City's utility revenues ability to meet projected expenses and proposed CIP • Study is referred to as a: a..

As the wastewater Asset Management Plan is a requirement of the CWSRF funding program, it is no longer needed by the City, and we have been instructed to cease work on the Plan. Troy Cassidy and I appreciate the time you and your staff dedicated to this process, and thank you for your cooperation. This letter to outlines our findings, and provides information to assist you in addressing the issues encountered. t, When conducting our evaluation of the Utility, numerous issues were found in the plant and the collection system that directly impact your ability to provide safe wastewater collection and treatment as well as your ability to comply with State and Federal regulations for the same. We are providing a basic list of issues we identified while onsite for your information, and want to remind you that FRWA remains available to provide operational and other assistance to you as a member City. Our findings are outlined below and in the attached evaluation forms: Wastewater Treatment Facility: We recognize the WWTF is near the end of its service life and ultimately needs to be replaced, but until that time, you are still required to operate in accordance with Florida Administrative Code and FDEP regulations. With that in mind, a list of issues noted at the plant, and potential regulatory issues are as follows: During our site visit it was observed that there is a significant lack of maintenance record keeping at the treatment plant. Several tanks and related equipment have deteriorated to the point of potential failure; including the aeration basins, clarifiers, and digesters as well as traveling bridge filter in which was out of service. Several blowers were no longer functioning and the Emergency generator does not appear to be operable. Much of the noted deterioration appears to be a direct result of a lack of property onsite maintenance. It was also observed that recordkeeping was very poor. Daily log entries were very minimal as it pertains to operational controls, adjustments, and maintenance of the facility. All records were improperly filed in a shipping box without any regard to organization. The laboratory chemical tracking and inventory does not appear to be performed or documented. 1. The wastewater treatment facility reuse system is not currently operating in compliance with State standards as required by Florida Department of Environmental Protection Rule 62 -610. 2. Specific subsections within 62 -610 should have immediate action are as follows: 62- 610.320 (6) Updated Operating Protocol — The Operating Protocols has not been update nor submitted along with the renewal for permit application. Operation and Maintenance Manual. An operation and maintenance manual or an addition to the treatment plant operation and maintenance manual or stand -alone instructional booklet, The reuse /land application system operation and maintenance instructions shall provide the operator with the Following: (A) an adequate description and schedule of routine reclaimed water or effluent application rates and cycles involved with the system; (B) operation procedures (including any notification and reporting requirements of appropriate agencies) during adverse climatic conditions and maintenance of equipment; (C) schedules for harvesting and crop removal; routine maintenance required for the continued design performance of the system; (D) ground water monitoring procedures and schedules; (E) listings of spare parts to have on hand; (F) and any other information essential to the operation of the system in accordance with the requirements of this rule. 62- 610.320 (5) (a) Operation and Maintenance Requirements for Operating Protocol The operation and maintenance records are not being documented and needs to be updated and submitted along with the permit renewal. 1. An operating protocol is a document which describes how a domestic wastewater facility is to be operated to ensure that only reclaimed water that meets applicable standards is released to a reuse system. It is a detailed set of instructions for the operators of the facilities. It may be part of the operation and maintenance manual or it may be a separate document. 2. The operating protocol shall address the following: (A) The criteria used to make continuous determinations of the acceptability of the reclaimed water being produced. This shall include the setpoints for parameters measured by continuous on -line monitoring equipment. (B) The physical steps and procedures to be followed by the operator when substandard water is being produced. (C)The physical steps and procedures to be followed by the operator when the treatment facility returns to normal operation and acceptable quality reclaimed water is again being produced. (D) Procedures to be followed during a period when an operator is not present at the treatment facility. (E) The physical steps and procedures to be followed by the operator when the operator returns to the treatment facility following an unattended period. 62- 610.460 Treatment and disinfection (3) Filtration The sand filters were not in operation and are not functioning. As part of the reuse system filtration must be met to comply with TSS results below 5.0 mg/l. At the time of the visit the turbidity reading was over a 20.0 NTU, which would equate to well over a 5.0 mg/l TSS. Continuous monitoring of turbidity shall be applied to the operating protocols as a means of controlling operation of treatment facilities to ensure that only acceptable quality reclaimed water is released to the reuse system or to system storage. The proposed monitoring equipment, chlorine, PH and turbidity shall be calibrated according to the requirements. 62.610.463 (1), (2) Monitoring and Reporting Parts of the treatment system (specifically the sand filters and several blowers) were not in service. The permittee of any reuse or land application system shall be responsible notification for periods of inactivation or abandonment of equipment. The permittee shall give the Department written notice at least 60 days before inactivation or abandonment of a reuse or land application system and shall specify what steps will be taken to safeguard public health and safety. 3. Cross - connection control program requirements are contained in Chapter 62 -555, F.A.C. (c) As part of the permit application, the reclaim water systems must comply with a cross connection control plan This plan is developed to ensure that there is no potential for any reclaim water or non drinking water wells to connect with the drinking water distribution system. 4. FAC 62- 600.405 Capacity and Analysis Report has not been updated and submitted. Specific subsections within 62 -610 that immediate actions should be taken are as follows 62- 610.320 (6) Updated Operating Protocol — The Operating Protocols has not been update nor submitted along with the renewal for permit application.

FAC 62- 600.405 Capacity and Analysis Report has not been updated and submitted. Wastewater Collection System: There appears to be minimal gravity sewer in the collection system and our analysis of onsite manholes showed them to be in relatively good condition, Analysis of the actual_ gravity mains should be conducted via televising and smoke testing, but relatively little infiltration or inflow was noted during the evaluation of the gravity manholes. The collection system evaluation indicated that the majority of the lift stations in the city, with the exception of the following, are operating with only one functional pump or only one pump in actually place: • Everglades Isle (Both stations with two functional pumps) • Seaboard Villas • Barron Station • The Elementary School • Lake Cypress FDEP regulations require that all lift stations have a minimum of two (2) operable pumps to provide redundant service should one pump fail. Not addressing this situation could eventually result in additional FDEP compliance action, A detailed analysis of each lift station in the city is included in the attached evaluation forms with specific information on missing or failed pumps and other issues that may need to be addressed, A list of stations with major issues other than failed or missing pumps is included below as these facilities have the potential for, or evidence of, Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) events: 1. The Chokoloskee Island Master Lift station was out of service, with all power tripped to the control panel. It is our understanding from discussions with field personnel that this is not an unusual occurrence. With no power to the control panel to activate the high water alarm, the station was overflowing directly to the adjacent waterway, resulting in a Sanitary Sewer Overflow event (SSO). We informed your personnel that this event must be reported to the FDEP and appropriate remediation actions be taken in accordance with FDEP regulations. When power was restored and the station pumps exercised, it was found that one pump is out of service. The second pump needs to be pulled, repaired, and returned to service as soon as possible. FRWA recommends the control panel for the station be repaired at the earliest opportunity, as failure of the station results in direct introduction of sewage into the environment in violation of State Law. We also recommend stairs or a ladder and platform be installed to provide access to the control panel as it is elevated for flood protection and is too high to be accessed from the ground. 2. The Estuary North Lift Station invert does not appear to be properly sealed into the wetwell and shows evidence of groundwater infiltration. The invert should be sealed, and any sand /soils should be cleaned from the bottom of the wetwell. Pump No. 2 was out of service. 3. The Partners Cove Lift Station pump discharge is leaking between the wetwell and the valve pit. The surrounding ground is saturated with raw sewage and the ground is beginning to subside. This potential SSO situation should be addressed immediately. Additionally, there is no Pump No. 2 installed in the station. All lift station and manhole evaluation forms prepared from our onsite evaluation are attached to this letter to assist in addressing the issues identified. We recommend your office review these forms and address the deficiencies noted as soon as possible to ensure the safe operation of your wastewater treatment and collection system. Please let us know if any of the documentation we received from the City is original and needs to be returned. We will retain all other information in our files should the situation change regarding potential CWSRF funding, and will look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the future. We appreciate the time you and your staff dedicated to assist us in this process, and as previously mentioned, FRWA is committed to assisting our members wherever possible. Sincerely, Williaam F.

In 2010 Tetra Tech was retained to perform a Water Management System Master Plan on behalf of the City for the South Florida Water Management District, Big Cypress Basin Board. Among the recommendations of the master plan was a capital improvement program (CEP) of projects. This revenue sufficiency study was conducted to evaluate the current ability of the City's utility revenues to meet the needs of the projected expenses of the Utility as well as the proposed projects in the CIP. Tetra Tech's scope of services includes: 1. A review of the historical performance of the utility system. 2. Develop revenue adjustments to meet the current revenue requirements, and funding for the proposed 5 year capital improvement program for the City. 3. Prepare and applications for grant and loan assistance funding with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's State Revolving Fund Program and the United States Department of Agriculture's Rural Development Program. Typically, utilities are operated as an Enterprise Fund for budgeting and financial reporting purposes, which allows for the specific reporting of utility finances. The City, however, operates the utility as part of the General Fund which includes revenues and expenses that are not utility related. As a result specific delineation of the revenues and expenses of the utility for purposes of this rate study are difficult to isolate. Much of the information provided herein was extrapolated from the City budget and audited financial statements as amended through supplemental information and discussions with the City staff. Although other City revenues appear to be supporting the Utility, the recommendations of this study are predicated upon the Utility meeting its own expenses through utility revenue. REVENUES The City maintains a set of rates and charges to provide revenue for the Utility. The current water user rates were established by City Ordinance No. 1997 -02 and consist of the following: Table 1 - Water User Rates Residential Charge Rate Base Charge (includes first 3,000 gallons)$13.00 per month Usage for next 7,000 gallons $4.00 per 1,000 gals Usage over 10,000 gallons$6.00 per 1,000 gals Commercial Charge Base Charge (includes first 3,000 gallons) Usage over 3,000 gallons Rate $13.00 per month$4.00 per 1,000 gals P: \IER \04546 \200 - 04546 - 11001 \Docs\Reports \EvergladesCity Rate Study 06031 l.doc 060311 Page 1 of 13 The current sewer user rates were established by City Ordinance 1980 -6 and consist of the following Table 2 - Sewer Rates Residential; Flat Rate of $11.00 per month Commercial Charge Rate Base Charge$18.00 per month Usage, First 5,000 gallons $4.25 per 1,000 gals Usage over 5,000 gallons$0.60 per 1,000 gals In addition, the City has a set of water and sewer hook -up fees as well as various miscellaneous charges including a grinder pump /lift station fee. Specific definitions of the water and sewer hook -up fees were not provided but it appears from the information received that the fees are established to, at least in part, recover the cost of the capacity in the system required by new connections. If so, these fees could be considered impact fees and are subject to specific limitations established by legislative and judicial legal requirements. Additionally the grinder pump /lift station fees appear to be specifically for the installation of wastewater service for new connections. A full review of these charges and their application is recommended. Conservatively for purposes of this analysis the hook -up fees and the grinder pumps /lift station fees are considered special purpose capital fees and are not utilized in the revenue projections. However, should further review of these charges allow for the inclusion of the resulting revenue a reevaluation of the results of this analysis is warranted. Historical and budget revenue for the utility system are presented in Table 3 below.

From FY 2011 budget For FY 2010, for which there was draft audited data, no separation of the capital charges was provided; however, given the minimal growth in the Utility, it is assumed these revenues are derived from the utility user fees. Historically, utility revenues have been around $660,000 with the exception of FY 2010 when revenues dropped Ito$614,000 (based on draft audited figures ). For FY 2011, the budgeted revenues are $716,070, but this number seems optimistic given historical trends. EXPENSES Utility expenses include the operating expenses that are necessary for the day -to -day operations and maintenance of the utility as well as non - operating expenses which include debt service, transfers, and capital expenditures. A summary of historical and budgeted expenses is presented in Table 4.

From FY 2011 budget Both operating and non - operating expenses reached a peals in FY 2009. A partial explanation for the increase is large expenditures for grinder pumps and lift stations. The current budget expenses are slightly less than historical expenses from FY 2008, Debt Service There are currently three bonds associated with the Utility each provided through the USDA Rural Development Program. The Series 1971 bonds will be retired in the current FY 2011 year. Each of the bonds is secured by utility revenues and a portion of the City's share of the State revenue trust sharing fiends, however, according to the City the trust sharing funds have not been used for debt service payment.

SYSTEM PROFORMA The system proforma statement projects the anticipated financial performance of the utility and presents recommendations for adjustments to revenues. The proforma is subject to the following assumptions and considerations: 1. System revenues are considered to the extent they are generated from the user rates and charges of the utility. Capital fees such as the water and sewer hook -up fee and grinder pump /lift station fees are not considered revenues for purposes of this analysis. 2. Given the current economic climate no customer growth is projected for the term of the proforma. 3. The basis of the proforma is the current FY 2010111 budget, adjusted as shown in Schedule 1. 4. Projections of utility expenses are increased subject to escalation factors as shown in Schedule 2. 5. Increases to the water and sewer revenues are calculated to achieve a positive cash flow after payment of operating and non- operating expenses. With positive cash flow being generated by utility rates the amount of general fund revenues currently supporting the utility will become available for other uses. The funding program for the$9,400,000 CIP uses the following considerations and assumptions: The source of funding is assumed to be through standard 30 year municipal bonds at a 4% interest rate, with a funded debt service reserve and 4% closing costs. Grant funding and or subsidized loans may be available (discussion follows) that may alter the principal and terms of the debt.

The grant/loan programs selected for application include: • Florida Department of Environmental Protection(FDEP), State Revolving Fund (SRF) Grant Program and • United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development (USDA RD)Water and Sewer Loan/ Grant Program The FDEP SRF grant program provides preconstruction and construction funding to small, economically disadvantaged communities for projects that address a public health risk. In order to be considered economically disadvantaged the median household income must be less than the statewide average which according to the most recent available census data (which at the time of this writing is the 2000 census). The City does meet the requirements for the program and a Request for Inclusion application for an SRF preconstruction grant was filed with FDEP prior to the deadline of March 1, 2011. A copy of the application is provided in Appendix A. FDEP will hold a public hearing to include projects on the funding list in June. Should the City's project qualify for funding in the current cycle, funds will be available by the end of 2011 for the preconstruction grant. If the City's project does not qualify the project will be placed on a contingency list and will be eligible for reconsideration in next year's funding cycle. It should be noted that funding is contingent upon the availability of grant funds. The City currently has three USDA RD loans from past projects. Like the FDEP SRF program there are requirements for being considered a small, economically disadvantaged community. Based on the data from the 2010 census the City could potentially receive a maximum grant of 40% of the total project cost with the balance of the funds received on loans. The exact amount of grant and loan funds as well as the interest rate on the loans is determined by USDA during the application process. The USDA RD program has a lengthy application process which Tetra Tech has initiated through a pre- application conference with USDA representatives in the Royal Palm Beach office. However, many of the actions required to complete the application rely upon the activities of the City and its other consultants. Appendix B provides a description of the activities required as well as the necessary forms required for a successful application. As with the SRF program it is important to note that grant funds and /or loan capacity may be limited in a given funding year.

In order to provide the City with additional insight regarding the impact of these increases on the customer bill, a survey of other utilities in the region was conducted. A comparison of the cost of monthly water and wastewater service for a typical residential customer with a 5/8 x 3/4 inch meter using 3,000 gallons a month (the City average for 2010) was calculated using the City's rates and those of other neighboring utilities, For purposes of this analysis, it is assumed that the projected increases in revenue will be applied directly to the existing rate structure and have a proportional impact on the customer bill. The rates shown for the other utilities were in effect as of December 2010 and are exclusive of local taxes, franchise fees, surcharges or other rate adjustments. The comparison with neighboring utilities is presented in Table 8.

While it is believed that these assumptions are conservative reasonable for purposes of this report, actual conditions may differ from those assumed. In addition the report has relied upon certain information that was provided by others. This information includes but is not limited to, audited financial statements, annual operating budgets, periodic reports, master planning documents, utility ordinances, conversations with City staff and other documents. While the information is believed to be reliable, no independent verification of the information has been performed and no assurances are offered with respect thereto. To the extent that future conditions differ from those assumed herein or provided by others, the actual results may vary from those projected. Tetra Tech offers the following conclusions and recommendations: 1. Operating the utility as part of the General Fund clouds the financial picture of the utility system. It is recommended that the utility system be set up as an enterprise fund to more closely track the system revenues and expenses, as well as transfers into or out of the utility. 2. There is some question as to the purpose and application of several capital fees charged i by the City to new connections. A complete and thorough review of the hook up fees and grinder pump /lift station fee is recommended to determine the appropriate applicability of revenue from these charges. 3. This analysis recommends an overall 40% increase to the water and sewer charges in FY 2012, a 25% increase in FY 2013 and a 38% increase in FY 2014. Although the study projects what the average customer bill may be given these increases, it does not make specific recommendations to the water and sewer rates and charges. A detailed rate study is recommended to evaluate the current utility rate structure and set the appropriate level of rates to meet the needs of the utility. 4. A portion of the revenue increases recommended are necessary to achieve a positive cash flow without relying upon support from the General Fund. To the extent these increases are implemented the general fund revenues will be available for other City uses. 5. The projected revenue increases will, on average, increase the customer bill to a point higher than other utility systems in the region as shown in Table 8. Given that the community has a median household income below the state average, it is recommended that the City continue to pursue grant funding for the proposed CIP to minimize rate increases.

Baseline Priority Score: Construction Loans: Establish the highest baseline priority score for that part of the project that represents at least 50% of the costs. The baseline priority scores are identified as 800 points for Tier I; 700 points for Tier Ii; 600 points for Tier Ili, 500 points for Tier IV; 300 points for Tier V; and 100 points for Tier VI, Item 6 of this form associates the Tier designations with the characteristics of various facility needs comprising the project. Item 10 identifies the costs by Tier designation, Note that costs forfacilities with a higher priority Tier designation may be included with those having a lower priority score designation at the lower priority score designation for purposes of generating at least 50% of the project costs. (For example when a project Includes Tier Il facilities representing 20% of the project cost, Tier IV facilities representing 35% of the project cost, and Tier Vi facilities representing 45% of the project costs, the highest justified baseline priority score is 500 points since the combination of Tier II and Tier IV costs is necessary to generate at least 50% of the total costs, Alternatively, the project could be subdivided into two or three smaller projects, each with its own characteristic baseline priority score.)

EVERGLADES CITY WATER PROJECT PROJECT DESCROPTION GENERAL The Everglades City water system currently provides service to Everglades City, Chokoloskee, Plantation Island and parts of Copeland. The existing system consists of a water treatment plant located. in Copeland that includes three water supply wells, a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, aeration., and rhloramination. The existing water treatment facility is rated for a maximum daily demand of 0.504 MOD. An aerial of the existing treatment plant site is illustrated in Figure 1. From the main water treatment plant, water is pumped approximately 7 -miles through an existing 9 -inch PVC water main to Everglades City. The City has a water booster station located in Everglades City that includes a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, chlorarn nation and high service pumps. The System has received notices from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for both the presence of Total Coliform and E. Coli. Bacteria in supply wells and exceedences of the Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) for TTHMs and HAA5s. In addition water quality sampling gin 2009 revealed exceedences of the iron and color secondary water quality goals. WATER SUPPLY WELLS The City has three water supply wells, each cased to a depth of 15 feet. Each well has a supply capacity of 220 gallons per minute (gpm). Table 1 includes a description of each of the existing water supply wells. Table x Existing Water Supply Wells T:!:�VeIX'Nairio: ,.. .EP 7�►,:. , .

However, at the time of the site inspection, only one well was in operation due to microbial contamination issues with the other two wells. In discussions with City staff, microbial contamination is a frequent occurrence especially at the start of the rainy season. This is a strong indication that the well are likely under the influence of surface water which would require among other things treatment via filtration. A review of the FDEP file indicates that the City has been notified that the Center well is microbially contaminated by the presence of Total Coliform. and E. Coli Bacteria. Based on this contamination, the City must either: 1. Prove that the well is not microbially contaminated by the submission of 20 new well samples, 2. Provide treatment to achieve 4 log virus removal/ inactivation, or 3. Replace the contaminated well. Based on a review of the file and discussions at the site, -microbial contamination of the wells is a persistent problem. In addition to the microbial contamination issues, it was also noted during the site inspection that there is a persistent problem with iron bacteria in the existing wells. It is recommended that the City install additional treatment facilities to achieve 4 -log virus removal inactivation without exceeding disinfection by product regulations and replace the existing wells. WATER TREATMENT PLANT The existing water treatment plant is located in Copeland and the general components are summarized in Table 2 below.

PROPOSED PROJECT The proposed project will address both the E coli. and total coliforrn issues through the installation of new wells drill to a sernicon£ined gray limestone aquifer that would not be considered under the influence of surface water, fn addition the project will include a Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filtration system. GAC filtration systems are used to remove organic materials that are the precursors to disinfection byproduct formation. GAC has a structure that is extremely porous which allows water to pass through with relatively low head loss, yet has a wide variety of pore sizes which can allow for small and large organic molecules to be absorbed. After some time period, the absorptive capacity of the carbon will be exhausted. The carbon is commonly taken off -site to be thermally recharged or is replaced. Bench scale or pilot tests are typically necessary to determine the suitability for use with the raw water, the amount of TOC that can be removed, and carbon usage. Planning level cost information for the installation of a GAC filtration system at the existing water treatment facility can be found in Table 3, Table 3 Proposed Project Improvements :.No; ,' °�;: ' �i'' .tid • ' %;;,c�a;;,,:�::�:�::.: :•;. !.�,', :'�;.',':':  t:� +'�;�"�,��'•.::• <•. >:•»DesF gyp, ,��':::��:•,;;�:'''�;.; �r >�;;::, �'�:;:',;;;� ,: PXanning'Level� Cosf :�$390,000 1 New Wells and Pumps 700,000 2 GAC Filtration System 3 Electrical and Instrumentation 158,000 79,000 4 Site Work 'Yard 158,000 158,000 5 Piping '+ 4y'�F:!'• ' ;�li'ni ;,i•i ,.1t,; .. .; J,t•" .,r,' 5, i.�•�'y�irl;;r } "if : :.ht;',rRwi''j: �ir�T..�,: t #i?x:• ..� i y,'�c> � rte �,rj'sr a.�;�.,• %:�'• $1,485,000 < Subtotal �}:;xt:.t'••,•,'': %;•;'!�,�•5�:: +G'�n�i• i t ,. sjttlY ;rN 13,000 6 Technical Services After Bid Opening 7 Contingency (10% of Subtotal) 149,000 ,,. 77777777777. , r:: - :;• '.,. r,• ':�..r;:.,•.•�;�<' ?,�:a, ...;: �t::�i ;:.;.:; -.,••.

Table 3' of Rule 62 -550, Florida Admimistrative Code (F.A.C.), identifies the MCL for TTMvb as 80 ug /.L, and the MCL for 1-lAA5s as 60 ug &. Rule 62 -560, F.A.C., now requires the public to be notified of these T HM and HAA5 violations, and Rule 62.550.300, F.A.C.; now requires the water system io submit a plan of corrective action to the Department, which describes how the violations will be corrected. Also, in accordance with Rule 62-550.821, F.A.C., and 40 CFR 141 Subpart I' tl�is water system. must continue quarterly monitoring for both TTPZMs and HAA5s. . In addition to continuing quarterly monitoring for TTHMs and HAA5s, Rule 62- 550.300 F.A.C, requires public water•s7stems to take necessary corrective action (which has to be approved by the Department), to meet all applicable MCLs. Postmarked no latex than JANUARY 27,20h, please subxnit to the Department a written plan of corrective action which indicates how the water system plans to address rectifying the TTHM and HAAB MCL violations. The plan must include specific activities as well as completion dates for each activity which is identified. Please note that the Department notified this water system by e�=A dated August 10, 2009, that the failure to install Ammor a at the booster station (only free clAorine was cleared at the booster station on 8/12/09) -would likely cause TTHM and HAA5 MCL violations. That is why the Department strongly encouraged this water system to install and clear the Ammonia at the booster station Everglades City VV J.1 January 13, 2010 Page 2 before the next set of quarterly TIHM and HAAS samples were required to be collected during the fourth calendar quarter (October /November /December) of 2009.

Michele Stewart FDEP (update spotlight list)' . r The Everglades City Water Treatment System has Levels of Total Trihalomed=es and Haloacetic .Acids • Which Exceed Standards SZTUA,T24N The Department of Environmental Protection requires disinfection of drinking water to inactivate possible pathogens,because the health benefits .of disinfection far outweigh its ris4. However, when used in the treatment of drinking water, some disinfectants combine with organic and inorganic matter present in the water to form chemicals called disinfection byproducts (DBPs). A number of DBPs such as Total TxiMomethanes (T rI94) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5s) may be •a health concern at certain levels of exposure. The Department has rovievred the laboratory analyses results for the first and second consecutive quarterly sets of samples for TT vfs and HAASs collected on September 24, 2009, and December 8, 2009, from the Everglades City public drinking water system. The laboratory analyses results for the samples collected on September 24, 2009, indicated a TTHM concentration of 243.3 micrograms per liter (ug/L), and aHA.A5 concentration of 189.34 ug/L, and the laboratory analyses results for the samples collected on December 8, 2009, indicated a TT.HM concentration of 583.214t, and a HA.A5 concentration of 283.2 ug/L. Therefore, the Department has determined that this water system has generated' Maximum C6ntaminant Level (MCL) violations for both TT HMs and HAA5s, since the running annual average MCLs for both T"TH N1s and HAA5s was exceeded after only two consecutive quarters of mon toring. Table 3 of Mule 62 -550, Florida Mministrative Code (FA.0 ), identifies the MCL for TTHMs as 80 uA, aadthe MCL for HAA5s as 60 ug/L. TII SECTS Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maximo= Contaminant Level (MCL)* over manyyears may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Some people who drink water containing haloacet tc acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an icxeased risk of getting cancer. _ .. .��' iA.T- SELO•Td.I�.- tTmll�EltS -TAO? .- - -- - - .- -. _. _ _. _ _ _ . ..._ _ _. _. _ _. _ .. _ _ _ _ _ _ . _ ..... _ Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of disin£ect;ionbyproducts such as TIMU and HAASs and pregnancy problems; Therefore, women of childbearing age maywlsh to seek alternative water sources,. Until the problem is corrected, any customers who are concerned about their exposure to•TrM& and HAA5s may wish to use alternative sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water treated by an appropriate home water txeatment device. Appropriate home watea: treatment devices axe those certified bythe National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for reducing TIM& and PTAA5s in dxinkingwa�ter. WRAT IS BEING HONE? In order to Correct the TTI lM and HAAS violations, the water system obtained i permit from the Department to install ghloranvnes for disinfection at the booster station, While the Department did issue a partial clearance on ; August 12, 2009, for the chlorine at the booster station, in order Io correct the TTHM and HAAS violations, the � water system still needs to dear the Ammonia system at the booster station as soon as possible. .c ADD DITIONAL INFORMATION.

The permiee has not provided reasonable assurance that the facility's discharge will comply with the applicable statutes and rules. However, the Department finds that there is no present, reasonable, alternative means of disposing of the waste other than by discharging it into the waters of the state, and that the granting of an operation permit will be in the public interest. Therefore, this permit is accompanied by Administrative Order AO- 2016 - 027618 and Consent Order 13- 0853 -11 -DW to satisfy the requirements of Section 403.088(2)(f), Florida Statutes, and Chapter 62- 620.320(4), Florida Administrative Code. Monitoring requirements under this permit are effective on the May 1, 2016. Until such time, the permiee shall continue to monitor and report in accordance with previously effective permit requirements. The Department's proposed agency action shall become final unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399 -3000. Under Rule 62- 110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Mayor Sammy Hamilton, Jr. Page 2 of 3 Petitions by the applicant or any of the persons listed below must be filed within fourteen days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28- 106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28- 106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e -mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department's proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. This permit action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department unless a petition (or request for an extension of time) is filed in accordance with the above. Upon the timely filing of a petition (or request for an extension of time), this permit will not bd effective until further order of the Department. Any party to the permit has the right to seek judicial review of the permit action under Section 120.68, Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rules 9.110 and 9.190, Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure, with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399 -3000, and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal f Mayor Sammy Hamilton, Jr. Page 3 of 3 accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days from the date when this permit action is filed with the Clerk of the Department. Executed in Fort Myers, Florida.

Will they be raising their rates to help? Mr. Joel went over the City's 5 year financial projections plan, both with and without capital improvements and indicated that they are requesting fund support from both the Department of Environmental Protection (PEP) and Basin /District in order for their capital improvement program to work. Mr. DeLisi was also concerned about the overall strategic plan projects, what proportion covers Everglades City, and asked what amount of funding are they looking for from the Basin /District. Of the proposed$2.5 million, Mr. Joel indicated that the City is looking for approximately $1.25 million from Basin, funding spread out with projections of$750,000 in FYI 3; $500,000 -$750,000 in FYI 4, depending on other grants received; and $250,000 in FYI 5. Mr. Joel reported that they intend to raise the rate. Mr. Farmer indicated, according to the rate study, they did not include Golden Gate City's rate which is considerably higher than the other areas in the study. The base fee (rate) in Golden Gate is$27; and suggested that they increase their current base fee of $13 to$26 to bring it more in line with the others in the area. Mr. Sorey recommended that the rate study include Golden Gate's base rate and go back to re -look at the capital improvement projections and adjust the City's rate. Mr, DeLisi suggested that they come back with more specific rate and funding information prior to the final review and budget discussions at the June Board Meeting.

It was stated that the recirculation pumps are currently not in operation (please see picture #1). Please have these pumps repaired or replaced. Rule 62- 555.350(2), Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) 2. The high service pumps #3 and 44 are nonfunctional at the booster station (please see picture #1). Please repair or replace the pumps/ controllers. Rule 62- 555.350(2), F.A.C. Large System Sanitary Survey Form Page 6 3. The fill valve for the ground storage tank located next to the booster station is nonfunctional. It was explained that an individual has to manual open the valve to fill the tank (please see picture #5 and #6). If the valve is forgotten, the tank will over flow through the vents. In picture #7, shows evidence that the tank has overfilled in the past. Since the tank is over flowing, it is washing away the foundation of the tank and potentially damaging the tank (please see pictures #8 thru #12). Please repair or replace the fill valve so that it does not need to be manually opened. Please repair the foundation around the tank to provide proper support and add splash pads to protect the ground from eroding away. Rule 62- 555.350(2), F.A.C. 4. There were multitude of large cracks within the ground storage tank near the booster station (please see pictures #17 and #18). Within a majority of cracks it appears that calcium deposit has built up over cracks indicating leaks (please see pictures #13 thru #16). Please have the tank inspected and repaired to prevent failure of the tank. Rule 62- 555.350(2), F.A.C. 5. There was no emergency response plan present at the time of inspection. Please create and maintain an emergency response plan in accordance with Rule 62- 555.350(15), F.A.C. 6. There was no current preventative maintenance plan created for the water treatment plant. Please make sure that a proper plan is created and implemented. Rule 62- 555.350(2), F.A.C. 7. The implementation of the cross connection control program for the City water system was not clear at the time of the inspection. In addition, the system shall review its current program to ensure it meets the requirements for the revised Cross- Connection Control Rule. Please review and update your Plan and provide the Department with information on the actions the City is taking to ensure cross connections are controlled on a continuing basis (i.e. testing of backflow preventers in accordance with the Cities Cross- Connection Control Plan), Rule 62- 555.360(2), F.A.C. 8. The well vent screens have holes in them and need to be replaced (please see picture #22). Please install a 24 mesh, corrosion resistant screen and caulk around the vent where it meets the casing. Rule 62- 555.320(8)(c), F.A.C. It was noticed that after the old plant is shut down and the new treatment system is online that a valve will still be present that could allow untreated water to bypass treatment (please see picture #19). Please remove the valve to eliminate the possibility of untreated water to bypass treatment and being feed into the distribution. 10. The flushing program, isolation valve exercising, and distribution log book were not present at the time of inspection. Please provide documentation that these items are being maintained. If these items are not being maintained, please contact the Department to further discuss. Rule 62- 555.350(2), F.A.C. and Rule 62- 602.650(5), F.A.C. 11. It was noted that the plant log book was misplaced during the construction of the new water treatment plant. Please maintain the plant log book in accordance with Rule 62- 555.650(4), F.A.C. NOTES AND RECOMMENDATIONS 1. Please note that the new water treatment plant requires a different operator timeframe. A 2C water treatment plant with a capacity of less than 500,000 GPD needs to be staffed by a Class C or higher operator for 3 hours a day for 5 days a week and one visit each weekend day (Le Saturday and Sunday). 2. The system will be required to collect two six month lead and copper samples between January to June 2015 and July to December 2015. The first set of six month samples must be submitted to the Department no later than July 10, 2015. If you have any question in regards to lead and copper, please contact Juan Robles at 239 -344- 5660 '—g- x Large System Sanitary Survey Form PHOTOS 1.

Date: December 16, 2014 Date: December 16, 2014 Page 10 DESIGN AND SPECIFICATION GUIDELINES FOR LOW PRESSURE SEWER SYSTEMS PREPARED BY A TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE FOR THE STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION June 1981 to affect the particular cluster in which breakage occurs and flows would remain more predictable as in the dendriform layout. Additionally, a reduction of service interruption could be accomplished by the installation of a connector line between clusters as shown in Figure I -2. The connector line would normally be valved from service and could be opened to service otherwise isolated dwellings. Vertical alignment considerations will also impact the horizontal layout. Ideally, a pressure sewer would be optimal if it were provided a nearly constant upward grade from its farthest point to its terminus and thereby eliminate the need for air release valves, pressure sustaining valves or similar appurtenances. These concerns should be considered during the design stage although the final pipe location will often be determined in the field at the -time of construction. The pressure sewer systems shall be able to handle the wastewater generated by the design population of the service area. In the example where there are several underdeveloped lots within the service area, the designer must consider if system capacity will be sufficient to handle the design discharge. The designer shall analyze the capacity of the system to determine the Units of development beyond the design population which the system can handle through special approaches. b) On -lot facilities The major capital and operation and maintenance (O/M) costs of pressure sewers have historically related to the on -lot or pressurization facilities. Several considerations must be factored into on -lot pressure sewer system design, and include: 1) type of pressurization system 2) single vs, multiple service 3) location of pressurization system 4) alarms and controls 5) aesthetics and safety problems 6) serviceability of components I -10 7) materials of construction 8) electrical problems 9) contingency problems The first on -lot facility design decision is the specification of the generic type of pressurization unit (PU). This will have specific effects on the remainder of the system design. However, unless local circumstances preclude one of the two primary alternatives, both the grinder pump (GP) and septic tank effluent pump (STEP) system should be considered. A comparison table of the two alternatives is shown below: Item of Comparison GP STEP *Capital cost: on -lot pressurization unit more less appurtenances less more *Capital cost: main similar similar *O /M cost on -lot , pressurization unit more less residuals handling less more *O/M cost: main present population 1 similar similar design population present population « I more less design population *Treatment Plant capital cost more less O/M cost more less *H2S Corrosion and Odor Potential less more Economics tend to favor multiple service per PU if they are within reasonable proximity. The cost - effective separation distance is a function of local construction costs and system design. However, the problems resulting from one homeowner receiving credits for power usage and inherent tendencies of people to blame others for malfunction of the PU or service line components should be expected. These types of problems can be overcome through 1 -11 management, arrangements which utilize direct power transmission through a separate power meter and inclusion of service calls within the user charges. Such systems usually result in the placement of the PU where there is a high degree of accessibility for service labor, but possibly at a cost of excessive lengths of piping. With small lots or building sites and favorable terrain this latter problem may be minimized. Serviceability of the on -lot components is important to both minimize the time lost due to a malfunction and keep the cost of inspection and maintenance to a minimum. Quick- disconnect features are recommended both for the piping and the electrical connections, so that the service person can quickly remove the unit for inspection and repair or replacement. With very shallow, less than I rn (3.3 ft), wetwells a simple union arrangement is often acceptable. With deeper wetwells, slide -away coupling arrangements with slide -rail and lifting chains are more common. With GP units complete manufacturer packages are generally employed which incorporate simplified GP unit removal arrangements. In residential developments safety problems are generally related to protection of the homeowner and their neighbors. One of the most frequent concerns relates to the PU wetwell cover. In the interest of providing a safe PU the wetwell covers shall incorporate locking mechanisms which provide relief under emergency conditions. By proper venting of STEP units through the septic tank and house roof vents accumulation of hazardous and potentially odorous gases can be minimized. Materials of construction must be capable of withstanding the environmental conditions of service. GP systems are generally packaged in such a manner that these considerations have been incorporated at the factory. STEP systems which are often designed and assembled locally require a cognizance of the highly corrosive nature of septic tank effluent. All components of the STEP system exposed to the atmosphere (not always submerged) must be highly resistant to corrosion. Materials which have been acceptable for different components are listed below: Septic tank and wetwell - concrete, plastic, coated steel Valves - bronze, plastic I -12 Ancillary items - plastic, 316 stainless steel Pump housing - cast iron, plastic, bronze, coated cast iron Pump impellers - plastic, bronze, cast iron Tank and wetwell cover - concrete, plastic, coated steel Electrical connections to the main panel must be in accordance with local construction codes. Approved underground wiring is recommended for both pump and control circuits and should be provided with separate fuses or circuit breakers. The controls shall be located outside the house in full view of the PU and contained in a lockable or tamper free and weatherproof circuit breaker box. For single service units, PU power sources should not be metered separately since minimum local billing charges will greatly exceed actual usage. The pump panel should have a smaller fuse or breaker than the service panel Finally, the pump motor connections must be water- tight. Due to potential power outages in rural areas both STEP and GP installations should have reserve holding- capacity. Single service GP installations generally provide a reserve storage capacity of about 0.19 m3 (50 gallons). Septic tanks usually have about 0.38 to 0.76 m3 (100 to 200 gallons) or residual capacity due to the freeboard inherent to the construction. Additional storage capacity may be required based on local conditions. 7ne loss of power in rural areas that are served by individual wells, and cisterns essentially eliminates the possibility for wastewater generation because water supplies become unavailable. The minimum storage capacity required is .19 m3 (50 gal) unless local authorities require additional storage based on local conditions. On -lot facility considerations should include the use of hydraulically similar PU equipment in order to simplify design and ON tasks. Spare parts and equipment inventories shall be maintained as a minimum: PU's Installed Spares Required 1 -10 1 10 -20 2 20 -40 3 40 -60 4 60 -100 5 100 -200 6 200 3% I -13 In addition, a complete supply of spare units of all system components must be maintained in similar quantities to the above scale for complete PU's. Part 4. Design Flows Systems must be designed on the basis of the type of PU employed and peak flows from the number of people to be served by the system. Figure I -3 indicates the recommended design flow for the anticipated number of service connections. For the more predictable progressing- cavity units, the design curve is based on the probability of simultaneous operations determined from the operating experience of previous PU system developments. If a progressing - cavity unit is to be installed and exhibits dynamic head - discharge (H -Q) significantly different from 0.7 I/s (11 gal /min) at high head, the curve should be adjusted accordingly. For centrifugal units in systems of less than 30 total separate services the pump and system characteristics are the primary determinants of the design flows to be used. In the range of 1 to 30 units the design flow should always be more than a single pump operating against the minimum system head possible and no more than 1.9 I/s (30 galhnin). The design must utilize the facility planning data on this subject to determine water use or average persons per dwelling. If either information source or other mitigating information, e.g., excessive lawn watering due to climatic conditions, indicates that flows differ significantly from the average use, the engineer should adjust the design flows from those listed below, and shown in Figure I -3 ( centrifugal), accordingly. No. Dwelling Units Design (Peak) Flow in m3 /s x 10 "3 min) (gal/min) 1 .9 (15) 10 1.9 (30) 50 2.7 (43) 100 4.7 (75) 200 8.2 (130) 300 11.4 (180) A pressure sewer is normally designed to flow full at all times. In smaller installations there may be relatively long periods of time where no flow win occur. During these periods an opportunity exists for deposition of grease or solids and gas accumulation. The results of these no -flow periods can pose serious problems if subsequent hydraulic conditions are unable to scour the depositions and transport those materials and gas accumulations out of the system.

Wetwell Appurtenances a) Internal discharge piping Grinder pump systems may utilize galvanized iron pipe or schedule 80 PVC pipe for internal discharge piping. Due to the severe corrosion potential of septic tank effluent internal discharge piping for STEP system should be schedule 80 PVC or equal. The standard size of internal piping is normally 32 to 38 mm. (1 -1/4 inch to 1 -1/2 inch) diameter for 1,490 watts (2 horsepower) or less rated pumps. For 2,240 to 3,730 watts (3 to 5 horsepower) rated pumps 51 to 64mm (2 inch to 2 1/2 inch) diameter internal discharge piping is normally required. b) Check valves Check valves used in both grinder and effluent systems are ball or flapper type with valve bodies constructed of plastic or bronze. Balls and flappers are available in rubber, plastic or metal. Due to possible physical damage to the threaded connections of plastic check valves moderate care must be taken. c) Hose connections Hose connection may be used in GP or STEP systems as part of the internal discharge piping. Flexible hose connection must be secured to the discharge pipe nipple or hose to iron pipe adapter and sealed with a type 316 stainless steel clamp. Couplings may also be threaded to the pump discharge and connected, to the flexible hose. d) Gate or ball valves A gate or ball valve will normally be installed inside the pump chamber or may be located outside the pump chamber if required by local codes. Gate or ball valves constructed of bronze or plastic are preferred. If the valve is located more than one foot from the top of the pump chamber, an approved riser should be furnished to open and close the valve. e) Quick disconnect couplings Rail type mountings of effluent and grinder pumps should be installed with a quick disconnect coupling. This type of coupling is used when the discharge pipe is located 0.9 meter (3 feet) or deeper in the pump chamber. Discharge couplings are made of cast iron with rubber 0 -rings or diaphragm sealing flanges. II -10 f) Level sensors There are four basic types of level sensors used with GP and STEP systems. They are; I. Mercury level control - Mercury level control switches contain a mercury contact switch encased within a polyurethane ball In the simplex system three separate switches are required with each switch designated to either turn the pump off, on, or activate a high water alarm. Recently, a differential mercury switch has been introduced which has combined the on and off function within the mercury control. A second mercury switch is still required to activate the high water alarm. 2. Magnetic-weight displacement - Magnetic weight displacement switches have been used in both GP and STEP systems. As the water level rises in the wetwell the magnetic weights are moved upward to allow a magnetic contact and start the pump. As the water level in the wetwell recedes, the weight of the plastic weights disengages the switch, turning the pump off. A mercury level control switch is used in conjunction with a weight displacement type for the high water alarm. 3. Pressure sensing switches - Pressure sensing switches have been used in GP systems. This type of switch is operated by hydrostatic pressure as the water level rises and recedes within the wetwell. A similar switch is installed as a high water alarm. Pressure sensing switches must be vented to the atmosphere. 4. Diaphragm switch - Diaphragm switches are used primarily with sump pumps and sewage ejectors but can be used with effluent pumps. Diaphragm switches must be vented to the atmosphere. A second diaphragm switch, mercury level control switch or pressure sensing switch would be required to activate the high water alarm. The diaphragm switch is not recommended for GP systems due to the potential of solids build -up around the diaphragm. II -11 g. Sealing of adaptors passing through chamber Steel couplings should be butt welded to the sidewali of steel wetwell to provide outlets for the discharge piping and power conduits. For fiberglass wetwells the outlet coupling should be either fiberglass bonded and coated or bolted to the interior wall with type 316 stainless steel bolts. Fittings should then be covered with an approved silicone sealant. Section D. ELECTRICAL Part 1. Grinder Pump Control System Since the single phase submersible centrifugal grinder pump has a capacitor start type motor, the capacitors and start relays must be located in a separate control panel enclosure. This control panel can be located either outside (NEMA 3 enclosure) or inside (NEMA I enclosure) the service location. In the interest of safety it is recommended that the control panel enclosure be placed within sight of the pump wetwell. The control panel should include, but not be limited to, a magnetic starter with ambient compensated bimetallic overload relay. The relay should have a test button for simulation of overload trip and manual reset button. Fault protection should be provided via a molded case magnetic circuit breaker with internal common trip or multiple poles. A hand - off - automatic toggle switch for hand operation with a green light to indicate the pump - running mode should be provided for each GP and mounted on a bracket inside the control panel enclosure. The control panel enclosure should be of high quality construction that meets State and local safety codes as well as national electrical codes. Should there be a power failure, GP malfunction, or flooded wetwell, pump controls and wiring must be accessible and comply with all code regulations to insure safety of the service user or operating personnel. As an alternate an explosion -proof combination motor control /junction box may be installed inside the GP wetwell. Semi - positive displacement pumps having the starter and capacitor located in the pump core require only astandard junction box hook -up to the power source. Most grinder pumps applications require either 208 or 230 volt single phase power source and the designer must be assured that this power requirement is comparable with the service users power distribution system. The recommendations under this sub - Section D, Part I are also applicable to three phase installations. 1I -12 62- 604.300 General Technical Guidance, Related Rules, and Forms. 4 (1) The technical standards and criteria contained in the following standard manuals and technical publications listed in subsection (5) below and those referenced throughout this rule are hereby incorporated by reference and shall be applied, if applicable, in determining whether permits allowing construction or modification of collection /transmission systems shall be issued or denied.

Complex or critical pumping stations shall be designed to incorporate standby pumping capability, power generation, and other appropriate features pursuant to paragraph 62- 604.300(5)(h), F.A.C. (c) New pumping stations shall be designed and located on the site so as to minimize adverse effects resulting from odors, noise, and lighting. The permittee shall give reasonable assurance that the facility shall not cause odor, noise or lighting in such amounts or at such levels that they adversely affect neighboring residents, in commercial or residential areas, so as to be potentially harmful or injurious to human health or welfare or unreasonably interfere with the enjoyment of life or property, including outdoor recreation. Reasonable assurance may be based on such means as aeration, landscaping, treatment of vented gases, buffer zones owned or under the control of the permittee, chemical additions, prechlorination, ozonation, innovative structural design or other similar techniques and methods, as may be required. (d) New pumping stations shall be enclosed with a fence or otherwise designed with appropriate features that discourage the entry of animals and unauthorized persons. An unobstructed sign made of durable weather resistant material shall be posted at a location visible to the public with a telephone number for a point of contact in case of emergency. (e) In areas with high water tables, the pump station shall be designed to include measures to withstand flotation forces when empty. The potential for damage or interruption of operation because of flooding shall be considered by the permittee when siting new pumping stations. The electrical and mechanical equipment shall be protected from physical damage by the 100 -year flood. The pumping station shall be designed to remain fully operational and accessible during the 25 -year flood; lesser flood levels may be designed for, dependent on local conditions, but in no case shall less than a 10 -year flood be used. Design considerations (water surface elevation, forces arising from water movement, etc.) shall be based upon available information; where site - specific information is unavailable, sound engineering practices shall be used in siting and design of pump station facilities. (f) Branches of intersecting force mains shall be provided with appropriate valves such that one branch may be shut down for maintenance and repair without interrupting the flow of other branches. Stubouts on a force main, placed in anticipation of future onnections, shall be equipped with a valve to allow such connections without interruption of service. (g) Except as provided in subsection 62- 604.400(3), F,A.C., sewers and force mains shall be laid at least ten feet (outside to outside) horizontally from water mains. Provided the applicant demonstrates there is no reasonable alternative, the Department shall approve smaller horizontal separation distances for sewers if one of the following conditions is met: 1. The top of the sewer is installed at least 18 inches below the bottom of the potable water line. 2. The sewer is encased in watertight carrier pipe or concrete. 3. Both the sewer and the water main are constructed of slip -on or mechanical joint pipe complying with public water supply design standards and pressure tested to 150 psi to assure watertightness. 4. The applicant provides documentation accompanying the permit application showing that another alternative will result in an equivalent level of reliability and public health protection. (h) Except as provided in subsection 62- 604.400(3), F.A.C., sewers and force mains shall be laid at least three feet (outside to outside) horizontally from any existing or proposed reclaimed water line permitted under Part III of Chapter 62 -610, F.A.C. Smaller horizontal distances shall be approved in accordance with subsection 62- 610.469(7), F.A.C. (i) Except as provided in subsection 62- 604.400(3), F.A.C., sewer pipes and force mains shall cross under water mains, unless there is no alternative. Sewers and force mains crossing water mains or reclaimed water lines permitted under Part III of Chapter 62- 610, F.A.C., shall be laid to provide a minimum vertical distance of 18 inches between the invert of the upper pipe and the crown of the lower pipe. The minimum vertical separation shall be maintained whether the water main is above or below the sewer. For sewer crossings, the crossing shall be arranged so that the sewer pipe joints are equidistant and as far as possible from the water main joints. Adequate structural support shall be provided for the sewer or force main to maintain line and grade. For sewers, provided the applicant demonstrates there is no reasonable alternative, the Department shall approve smaller vertical separation distances if one of the following conditions is met: 1. The sewer is encased in a watertight carrier pipe or concrete. 2. The sewer is designed and constructed equal to water pipe and pressure tested to 150 psi to assure watertightness. 3. The applicant provides documentation accompanying the permit application showing that another alternative will result in an equivalent level of reliability and public health protection. 0) The provisions of paragraphs 62- 604.400(2)(g) -(i), F.A.C., above are applicable to in- ground crossings. No vertical or horizontal separation distances are required for above - ground crossings. (k) Special protection shall be furnished for sewer lines crossing canals or other waterways subject to maintenance dredging or where damage may occur 'from water craft anchorage so as to minimize the potential for unintentional discharge of wastewater into surface waters. 1. Subaqueous lines shall be buried at least three feet below the design or actual bottom, whichever is deeper, of a canal and other dredged waterway or the natural bottom of streams, rivers, estuaries, bays, and other natural water bodies. Designs with less than the three -foot minimum cover shall be protected by a concrete cap, sleeve, or some other properly engineered device to insure adequate protection of the line; subaqueous crossings shall be designed to lie on the bottom of waterways only when the engineering report provides reasonable assurance that, because of the depth of the water or other circumstances, the pipeline shall be adequately protected from damage from natural occurrences or mankind's activities. 2. Subaqueous crossings shall be clearly marked by permanent warning signs placed on the banks of canals, streams, and rivers clearly identifying the nature and location (including depths below design or natural bottom) of the crossings. Crossings of lakes, bays and other large bodies of water shall be similarly identified at the shore and, with suitably fixed signs, in any area where anchoring may normally be expected. Signs shall have characteristics compatible with surrounding land use, while serving the intended purpose. 3. Aerial crossings, whether hung from existing structures, self - supporting, or supported by utility bridges or structures, shall be designed to maintain existing or required navigational capabilities within the waterway and to reserve the riparian rights of adjacent property owners. 4. Provisions for testing the integrity of underwater lines shall be made, and special pipe material suitable for underwater construction shall be used. 5. Lines shall be designed to incorporate valves or other flow regulating devices (which may include pump stations) on the horeline or at such distances from the shoreline as may be approved by the Department to prevent discharge in the event the line is damaged. (3) If there are conflicts in the separation requirements between collection systems and drinking water facilities established in subsections (1) and (2) above and those established in Chapter 62 -532 or 62 -555, F.A.C., then the requirements in Chapter 62 -532 or 62 -555, F,A.C., shall apply.

The District entered into the grant agreement for $750,000 with Everglades City on January 25, 2013, to cost share in Phase II of a Water Supply System Improvement Project. Through April 10, 2014, the District has disbursed$339,450 to Everglades City for Phase II construction in two payments: the first payment for $34,450 was dated March 14, 2013, and the second payment for$305,000 was dated June 27, 2013, Everglades City also received a commitment of $2.3 million from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for the Phase lI portion of the project. Combined with the District's$750,000 contribution, the total Phase II project funding is estimated to be approximately $3.05 million. The purpose of the project is to improve Everglades City's water supply system and bring it into compliance with certain existing regulations. Further, improvements to the existing water supply wells were necessary to provide protection against microbial contamination. As a result of these concerns, Everglades City initiated a project to bring its system into compliance and upgrade its water supply system in two phases. Phase 1 consisted of planning and constructing two well pumps and connecting the new wells at the existing water treatment plant. Phase II primarily involves the design and construction of a new filtration membrane system and a concentrate disposal pipeline to Everglades City wastewater collection system. Phase 1 has been completed and Phase II of the project is in process. Based on our review of various documents provided by Everglades City, Phase II tasks including design and pipeline construction have started. District management found that the documentation provided by Everglades City for its Phase II design and construction activities only supported approximately$80,000 of expenditures. Moreover, more than, half of these payments were made to a former District employee who had been the director of the Big Cypress Basin Service Center at the time the agreement was executed. Management found these payments unusual and questioned whether these services were within the agreement's scope of work. It should also be noted that the District's original project manager assigned responsibility for overseeing project expenditures was involuntarily separated from the District subsequent to execution of the grant agreement. f Office of Inspector General Page 1 Audit of Everglades City Grant Agreement According to the agreement's construction schedule, the District funded portion of Phase II construction should have been completed by October 2013; however, Phase lI financial records provided by Everglades City indicated that major tasks remain unfinished. In addition, the timeframe to complete the District funded construction has expired; therefore, before extending the agreement, District management requested 'an audit and a full accounting of all Phase II construction costs. Thus, our Office invoked the audit rights in accordance with the agreement. The agreement's audit rights are contained in paragraph 16, subsection B, Examination of Records, which states that Everglades City shall maintain records and the District shall have inspection and audit rights as follows: • 163 Examination of Records: The District or its designated agent shall have the right to examine in accordance with generally accepted governmental auditing standards all records directly or indirectly related to this agreement.... Office of Inspector General Page 2 Audit of Everglades City Grant Agreement OBJECTIVE, SCOPE AND METHODOLOGY Our objective was to determine the amount of expenditures Everglades City incurred towards the Phase II project and whether such expenditures were appropriate and in accordance with the terms of the grant agreement. We also determine the nature of the disbursements made to the former District employee and assessed whether these payments were proper and demonstrated valid project expenditures. To accomplish our objectives, we performed the following procedures: • Requested an accounting of all expenditures charged to the agreement. • Requested Everglades City to provide supporting documentation for payments charged to the agreement. Traced payments to contractor agreements, Everglades City's financial records and bank statements. • Conducted site visits. • Interviewed Everglades City's project manager. We conducted this financial audit in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to provide a reasonable basis for our findings and conclusions based on our audit objectives. We believe that the evidence obtained provides a reasonable basis for our findings and conclusions based on our audit objectives. Office of Inspector General Page 3 Audit of Everglades City Grant Agreement AUDIT RESULTS Executive Summary We found that Everglades City recorded Phase II expenditures along with other costs that were incurred for its water supply system in its Utility Account. Our analysis of Utility Account activities and various accounting records though February 2014 revealed that of the $340,754 recorded in this account,$290,736 were incurred for Phase II design and related costs, and $50,018 were for improvements to Everglades City's water supply system that were outside of the District's Phase II Grant Agreement's scope of work. We found that the former District employee was hired by Everglades City as a consultant and provided project oversight assistance; which included contractor invoice review, permit acquisition, and design and construction oversight. In our opinion, these oversight services proved to strengthen Everglades City's review process over project expenditures; however, our analysis revealed that$14,950 of the $41,850 billed was for services provided that were not within the District's Grant Agreement scope of work. We also found that$21,559 of the Project Engineer time was spent securing an FDEP grant and working on Phase 1 project tasks, which were unrelated to the Phase 11 Grant Agreement scope of work. Everglades City's Accountant also identified costs totaling $13,509 that were also unrelated to Phase I1. These costs are included in the$50,018 of water supply system expenditures that are outside the District grant agreement scope of work. We discussed our findings with the Everglades City Mayor and Accountant on April 23, 2014. They agreed with our finding and Everglades City will make the appropriate adjustments to the Phase II project cost records. i Office of Inspector General Page 4 Audit of Everglades City Grant Agreement Analysis of Phase II Expenditures Everglades City is a small city located at the southern tip of Collier County in the District's Big Cypress Basin. Everglades City is governed by an elected Mayor and a five - member City Council. The City's staff consists of six full -time and two part -time employees. On March 11, 2013, we met with the Mayor and Accountant of Everglades City and the Project Engineer, to review the financial records that supported Phase II expenditures and conduct a project site visit. Prior to our meeting, we requested that Everglades City provide all documentation related to Phase II expenditures including invoices, contractor agreements, cancelled checks, project cost reports and any other support deemed necessary to substantiate Everglades City's design and construction costs. The financial records provided by Everglades City revealed that Phase II and other water supply expenditures totaled $340,754 through February 2014, The Phase II expenditures were recorded in Everglades City's Utility Account along with other costs that were incurred for its water supply system. We analyzed the supporting documentation provided by Everglades City, which included contractor invoices, time reports and bank statements to determine the costs that were attributable to Phase II. Our analysis is summarized in the following table, which segregates the expenditures between allowable Phase II costs and water supply system costs that are not Phase II related.

Costs: $50;018 Total Costs .- 40;7.54, Office of Inspector General Page 5 Audit of Everglades City Grant Agreement We found that of the$340,754 recorded in Everglades City's Utility Account, $290,736 was for Phase II design and construction expenditures. These costs were supported by invoices, contracts, contractor time reports or other documentation; however, we also found that$50,018 was recorded in the Utility Account for water supply system expenditures that was not related to the Phase II project scope of work. Everglades City engaged the engineering firm of AEC Water primarily for project design, project permitting and construction oversight services. hi total, AEC Water invoiced Everglades City $183,333 through February 2014 for the aforementioned services. Our analysis of the AEC Water time reports revealed that the rates charged appeared fair and reasonable. We found that the Project Engineer, a principal in AEC Water, adjusted his hourly billing rate depending on the complexity of the engineering task. The Project Engineer reduced his hourly rate for work done on tasks that were appropriate for a less experienced engineer. AEC Water also provided oversight services for the competitive Phase II contractor selection process. Our review of various procurement documents indicated that Everglades City evaluated four contactors for Phase II construction and awarded the contract to DN Higgins for$2.45 million, the lowest responsive and responsible bidder. Our analysis of time reports prepared by AEC Water professionals revealed that $19,135 was for hours spent assisting Everglades City in securing the grant from FDEP for the Phase II project. While hours incurred on grant acquisition appeared to be beneficial to Everglades City, the expenditure for these services does not conform to the District Grant Agreement's scope of work. We also found time charged for Phase 1 tasks totaling$2,424, which were outside the scope of the grant agreement. Everglades City hired and paid the former District employee a total of $41,850 for services rendered during the period October 7, 2012 through November 6, 2013, which is the approximate Phase II design time frame. The former District employee was paid a rate of$50 per hour and usually worked 16 hours weekly during the period for a total of 837 hours. According to the former District employee, Everglades City's Mayor requested him to provide oversight assistance, which included contractor invoice review, permit acquisition, and design and construction oversight. We found that this oversight proved to strengthen Everglades City's review process over project expenditures. However, our review of his time reports revealed that of the $41,850 paid to him,$26,900 was directly related to work performed on Phase II tasks but Office of Inspector General Page 6 Audit of Everglades City Grant Agreement services costing $14,950 were for time recorded for the FDEP grant, Phase 1 and other services unrelated to the Phase II project. Other costs of$13,509 primarily consist of payments to FDEP and a contactor that Everglades City's Accountant identified as unrelated to Phase II. Our audit procedures also entailed visiting the Phase I and Phase II work sites with the Project Engineer. We found that the Project Engineer was very knowledgeable of the work that was performed. At the Phase 1 site, we noted that installation of the two wells appeared complete. According to the Project Engineer, Phase II design and installation of the concentrate line was 90% complete. We observed the underground concentrate pipe line installation site and materials stored at the water treatment plant. l Office of Inspector General Page 7 Audit of Everglades City Grant Agreement Everglade City, Florida Author: o. Joel, w (AEC Water) Project Background or Rationale The city of Everglade City, Fla., is a small fishing community in the southernmost portion of Collier County on the western coast of Florida (Figure 1). The city is the interface to Big Cypress Swamp with coastal wetlands lining the north coast of Chokoloskee Bay. This highly sensitive estuarine, shallow water region is part of the "Ten Thousand Island" area that is known to be a vital part of the ecology of Southern Everglades National Park, and is home to many species of birds, fish, and other wildlife. The outer portions of the city are characterized by mangrove wetlands. The city has a total of 250 single family residential homes and 130 mobile home units. At build -out (2030), an additional 482 home units will be added. The current population of the city is approximately 800. Figure 1 Location of Everglade City (Photo credit: Collier County, Fla. Appraiser) 2012 Guidelines for Water Reuse D -96 pendix D I U.S. Case Studies The city has developed areas that are at an elevation of 2 to 5 feet (0,6 to 1.5 meters). Because of the low elevation, the city and surrounding areas experience tidal and storm surge flooding. Capacity and Type of Reuse Application The Everglades City wastewater treatment system provides service to the incorporated area of the city and to portions of Copeland and Chokoloskee. The existing plant has a capacity of 0.16 mgd (7 Us) on an annual average daily flow basis. The treatment process consists of flow equalization, aeration, secondary clarifications, membrane filtration, chlorination, dechlorination, aerobic sludge digestion, sludge drying beds, reject storage, reclaimed storage and distribution, and surface water discharge. Flow is delivered to the plant via 245 grinder pump stations in the city and two master pump stations (Copeland and Chokoloskee). The city has two permitted options for land application of reclaimed water. The first option is for distribution or reclaimed water for public reuse for irrigation of residential lawns, city landscape areas, roadway medians, the airport, school, and park. If the demand for reclaimed water is less than the total production of reclaimed water, the remaining water is used to recharge the local shallow aquifer through a rapid infiltration basin. Water Quality Standards and Treatment Technology The Florida Department of Environmental Protection operating permit mandates the following annual average treatment standards: • biochemical oxygen demand, Carbonaceous day — 20 mg /L • total suspended solids — 5 mg /L • coliform — 25 #/100 mL • pH — 6.0 min to 8.5 max • chlorine residual —1 mg /L • total nitrogen — no limit • total phosphorous — no limit The monitoring is required at the following locations: after chlorination, but before dechlorination, at the discharge point to the percolation ponds, and at the discharge point to the public access reuse system. Project Funding and Management Practices The city distributes reuse water at no cost to their customers. The average monthly cost of potable water (base and use fee) for a user of 4,000 gallons (15 m) is $17; this typically reflects a$13 base fee that includes 3,000 gallons (11 m) of water and $4/1,000 gallons ($1.03 /m3) for use above the base volume. The monthly wastewater treatment cost for the same level of service is $16.20 ($13 base fee plus $3.20/1,000 gallons ($0.83/m3) above 3,000 gallons (7.74 m) water use). The current wastewater plant is at the end of its useful life. The city is evaluating the need to upgrade the plant for full build out and increasing their service area. The total flow at build out is estimated to be 0.50 mgd (22 Us), At this flow, new use opportunities for the generated reuse water will need to be established. The city's current customer base cannot sustain the projected needs without a rate increase. A consultant has determined to meet the current 5 -year capital improvements plant, and would require a rate increase in excess of 100 percent over the next 3 years. To reduce the rate impact, the city has started the process of applying for grants to reduce the rate increase. Institutional /Cultural Considerations The city of Everglades City has demonstrated that small communities can effectively incorporate a reuse water system into their effluent disposal scheme and not charge a fee for its use. Mayor Sammy Hamilton, Jr. stated that: "The only negative comments I receive about city operations is when our homeowners do not get the reuse water they have become accustomed to receiving." He also states, "Our water supply is treated as our community life blood and any alternative water source we can identify will sustain our community for the next 100 years." The city has landscaped its medians with Florida native plantings and as a component of the city conservation program; it uses the reuse water to irrigate the plantings. Annually the city has a 2 -day seafood festival attended by over 60,000 persons. They call commenting how green the city is. 2012 Guidelines for water Reuse D -97 Lawsuit filed over Everglades City wastewater - Fox 4 Now WFTX Fort Myers /Cape Coral Page 1 of 1 EVERGLADES CITY, Fla. -- The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is filing a lawsuit against Everglades City over its sewage, and Collier County taxpayers could be footing the bill. The suit claims the city has been running its wastewater treatment plant without a permit since July 5th. That violation alone carries a fine of up to $1o,000 a day. The city has also reportedly failed to make 12 of the 24 necessary repairs to the plant to settle a lawsuit filed back in 2013. Over the next few weeks, utility officials will figure out how much the work would cost taxpayers if the county steps in. Copyright 2015 Scripps Media, Inc. All rights reserved.

That violation alone carries up to a$10,000 a day fine. The city has also failed to make 12 of the 24 necessary repairs and replacements to the treatment plant that it agreed to make in 2013 to settle the state's last lawsuit over the failing plant, state regulators said. The city agreed then to pay a $1,000 fine each day it didn't meet a series of deadlines for replacing pipes and parts, upgrading infrastructure and designing plans for a complete replacement of the treatment plant itself. The city has been missing those deadlines since 2013, according to the complaint. Everglades City officials also have missed deadlines to respond to the complaint in court and have been found in default by the clerk of courts, which could allow a judge to rule against the city without it mounting a defense. Mayor Sammy Hamilton wouldn't say why the city hasn't responded to the complaint. He said temporary repairs are being made and any fines will be avoided. State regulators are less confident that the city can afford the fixes. In a letter sent last week seeking help from Collier County, Paula L. Cobb, the Department of Environmental Protection's deputy secretary for regulatory programs, said Everglades City officials don't believe they have the means to get the treatment plant up to date. http : / /www.printthis.olickability. comlpt/cpt ?expire= &title = Everglades +City +sewer +failin... 3/15/2016 Everglades City sewer failing, state asking Collier to step in to help fix it Page 3 of 5 "Collier County, which operates one of the best run utilities in the state, could improve significantly the utility service and quality of life in the Everglades City area," Cobb wrote. "The department is hoping that Collier County will join with the department in developing and implementing a solution." Over the next six weeks, Collier County utility officials will assess the work that needs to be done at the Everglades plant and estimate how much it might cost county taxpayers if the county does step in, said Nick Casalanguida, deputy county manager. "I don't think the county wants to take it over," Casalanguida said. "It's in pretty rough shape. We're going to work with the DEP and our consultants to kick the tires and see what the costs and liabilities are." If the county moves forward, either in taking over the utility or helping the city make the repairs, all the costs associated with the work will have to come from the state or the city, said commissioners Penny Taylor and Tim Nance. "This looks like a chronic problem," Taylor said. "We should help assess the situation and facilitate a solution. But Everglades City is going to have to figure out a way to pay for this." Everglades City plans to build a new treatment plant and will be finishing a study in the coming weeks to determine what that might cost, Hamilton said. "It's getting fixed," Hamilton said. "I'll fix it like I always do. We have a survey coming for how much it will cost to tear it down and build a brand new plant. Then I'll go out and get the money. f I always can get the money. Everyone knows what the mayor has done for Everglades. City. I'll have that all finished up. But http: / /www,printthis. clielcability. com /pticpt ?expire= &title= Everglades +City +sewer +failin... 3/15/2016 Everglades City sewer failing, state asking Collier to step in to help fix it Page 4 of 5 right now we've got to go ahead and do the things we got to do to keep from getting fined." Hamilton said he expects a new treatment plant to cost up to$15 million. He believes temporary repairs will keep the city from being fined and said he has been working with the state to find a funding source to build the new plant. h1 addition to the new plant, the city heeds to replace outdated equipment and repair a number of broken pumps, flow meters and air compressors that stopped working years ago. Every day, the plant treats an average of 140,000 gallons of liquid sewage from sinks and toilets throughout the small city. There is no evidence that any untreated wastewater has been dumped from the plant, said Jess Boyd, spokeswoman for the department of environmental protection. "The goal is to bring the facility back into compliance to ensure human health and safety and that of the environment," Boyd said. Because the city has failed to respond to the complaint, the state will ask the circuit court for a judgment to compel the fixes and enforce the fines, she said. The state is also working with the Florida Rural Water Association to immediately study the system and find any operational and maintenance changes the city can make while the repairs are being made, Boyd said. httn: / /www.-orintthis. clickability.com/pt /ept ?expire = &title= Everglades +City +sewer +failin... 3/15/2016 Everglades City sewer failing, state asking Collier to step in to help fix it Page 5 of 5 Find this article at: http: / /www. napiesnews.com/ news /government/everglades -city- sewer - failing- state - asking - collier -to- step -in -to -help- fix- it- 2d7b6869 -6d9f- 44ce- e053- 371722061.html ❑ Check the box to include the list of links referenced in the article. httn, llwww: n °intthis.cliel�abilitv.comIDtic )t?exDire =& title Everglades +City +sewer +failin... 3/1:5/2016 Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park ITEM 5: REQUEST: Consideration to ensure that a 1.6 -acre easement for a proposed potable water well site within Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park (Board of Trustees' Lease No. 2840) is consistent with the Incompatible Use of Natural Resource Lands Policy. COUNTY: Collier APPLICANT; City of Everglades City (City) LOCATION: Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park Section 12, Township 52 South, Range 29 East CONSIDERATION: There is no fee associated with a public easement. Also, as net positive benefit compensation for the recreational impacts to state -owned conservation lands, the City will donate 3.2 acres as an addition to Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park (Fakahatchee) as well as provide additional goods and services acceptable to the Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Recreation and Parks (DRP). (Outlined in Staff Remarks) STAFF REMARKS: Background /History The City has requested a 1.6 -acre easement over state -owned conservation lands within Fakahatchee for the relocation of their municipal wellfield site. The existing wellfield consists of three wells (8- inches wide by 25 -feet deep) which service the City as well as the communities of Chokoloskee, Plantation Island, and parts of Copeland. The source water for the existing wells is biologically impacted, resulting in the wells having reached the end of their useful life. Two out of the three wells keep having hits within the monthly bacteriological samples (even after the well has been disinfected). With only one good well in service, the facility is not in compliance with Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) regulations. Specifically, the system is not currently in compliance with existing disinfection and disinfection by- product regulations. In July 2011, the City entered into a Well Monitoring License Agreement with the Board of Trustees to construct and monitor two new test well sites which are located within the requested easement area. Additionally, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is the administrative agency of the State of Florida having the power and duty to protect Florida's water resources and to administer and enforce the provisions of the Florida Safe Water Drinking Act, Sections 403.850, et seg., Chapter 373, Part IV, Florida Statutes (F.S.), and the rules promulgated in Title 62, F.A.C. DEP found the City to be in violation of section 403.161, F.S., and Rule 62- 555.350(2), F.A.C. Specifically, the City's system was designed and permitted to use three water supply wells and two of said wells were determined to have been out of service for over 12 months. Also, the City was found to be in violation by installing two permanent potable water wells and fill placed in wetlands in excess of the temporary fill authorized in ERP de minimis Exemption No. 11- 0307204 -001 without a valid permit, easement, or other form of consent from DEP. On April 13, 2012, DEP and the City entered into Consent Order, OGC File No. 12- 0856- 11 -PW, to correct the violations. Approval of this public easement will give the City valid proprietary authorization for the two new water well sites and will facilitate issuance of the ERP regulatory permit application (No. 11- 0307204 -002) for the permanent road fill and fill pad needed for these new water wells. The ERP permit will require execution of this easement prior to commencement of construction. June 15, 2012 ARC Agenda Page 1 of 33 Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park DRP has reviewed the proposed project and has submitted a letter of support on April 13,2012. Also, the Department of State Division of Historical Resources has reviewed the project and has determined they have no concerns. The proposed easement is located on "natural resource lands" as defined in the Board of Trustees' Incompatible Use of Natural Resource Lands Policy (IUP) approved on August 9, 1988, and is subject to the IUP and review by the Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC). Council review is requested to ensure compliance with the four conditions of the IUP. Board of Trustees' approval of this action has been delegated to DEP's Division of State Lands under DSL -24. Public Interest: It is in the public interest for the City to be in compliance with current provisions of the Florida Safe Water. Drinking Act and applicable Florida statutes and rules. Therefore, the City is required to furnish its residents and surrounding service area with a viable, safe potable water system. Use is Not Incompatible: The use is not incompatible with the purposes for which the land was acquired. The proposed easement area and the test well sites already approved under the well monitoring license agreement impact the same lands, and the City is required to comply with the aforementioned Consent Order, all permit mitigation requirements, and with the Board of Trustees and DRP's net positive benefit requirements. These requirements will help offset any potential adverse impacts to the easement area. No Practicable Alternative: In January 2012, Tetra Tech prepared a Well • Construction and Testing Summary Report for the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) which investigated the replacement of the three existing supply wells with the two new wells. The Tetra Tech Report recommended three improvement alternatives: 1. Use of existing water treatment facilities with new deeper fresh water supply wells 2. Installation of filtration facilities and use of the existing water supply wells 3. Installation of new brackish water supply wells with a membrane water treatment system The best and most cost effective option was found to be the continued use of the existing water treatment facilities with new deeper fresh water supply wells. The total depth of the replacement wells is 37 feet deep with casing to a depth of approximately 22 feet. In this area, the geologic framework for withdrawal of freshwater for potable purposes is confined to the very near surface aquifer system known as the Tamiami Aquifer. This aquifer system typically supplies sufficient quantities for satisfaction of the City's needs at shallow- depths of approximately 40 to 60 feet. Attempting to install wells of greater depths than those currently utilized will result in penetration of brackish portions of the aquifer system due to the proximity to the marine waters and the saltier water being much closer to land surface. Withdrawal of the brackish water would result in the need to change the current treatment technology being utilized by the City and surrounding communities. The alternative technology would involve the use of reverse osmosis and would require deep well injection for disposal of the by- June 15, 2012 ARC Agenda Page 2 of 33 Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park products. This would result in a much greater cost to the City and surrounding communities for the same product obtained at the shallow depths. Approval of this public easement will enable the City to place the two new wells into full production. Net Positive Benefits: Donation of existing well sites The City is donating 3.2 acres at the existing wellfield site to the Board of Trustees. The site is an inholding parcel which will be managed by DRP as part of Fakahatchee. Donation of this site to the Trustees will further consolidate lands within the park boundary under the management of the DRP, thereby allowing DRP to better manage this area for protection of conservation resources and recreational opportunities. The donation will be in two phases: (1) Phase I will include the 2.6- acre center well site (Area A) and will occur at the time of execution of the easement for the new well sites. This well has been properly plugged and abandoned. (2) Phase II will include the 0.35 -acre eastern well site (Area B) and the 0.23 -acre western well site (Area C) and will occur within sixty (60) days of the new wells becoming fully operational and functional. Until the two new wells become operational, the two existing wells (western and eastern) must remain in operation to comply with the administrative rule for public water systems. The deed for the Phase I conveyance shall reserve an access easement to the City to access the western well in Area C, and said access easement shall terminate upon proper plugging and abandonment of the western and eastern wells. Concurrent with the Phase I conveyance, the City will place the deed and funds (survey, environmental site assessment, title insurance) for the Phase II conveyance into escrow with a title company. Escrow will also include an executed contract and funds for proper plugging of the wells in Area B and Area C. Rule 62- 532.500(5), F.A.C., states that all abandoned wells shall be plugged by filling them from bottom to top with neat cement grout or bentonite and capped with a minimum of one foot of neat cement grout. Preference will be given to the use of neat cement grout as opposed to bentonite or blended grout. Removal of exotic vegetation The City will remove all exotic vegetation from the 3.2 -acre donation parcels prior to execution of this easement. Purchase of $7,500 of native vegetation The City will purchase and install$7,500 worth of native vegetation to function as a landscaping screen along the boundary line between the new wellfield site and the adjacent park areas within six (6) months of the new wells becoming fully operational. Recontouring The City will recontour the 3.2 -acre donation parcels to a more natural elevation within thirty (30) days after the proper plugging and abandonment of the three existing well sites. The proposed elevation is to be determined by mutual agreement between the City and the DRP park manager.

This letter is needed to satisfy requirements of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Collier County Government has jurisdiction over the subject property and -the Collier County Growth Management Plan (GNIP) is the comprehensive plan for Collier County adopted pursuant to the reference-statute. Below is staff's analysis. Project Summary: In personal discussion, you stated the South Florida Water Management District has already drilled two test wells on the proposed easement site to test for water quality, and this was confirmed in subsequent phone conversation with Mr. Clarence Tears, Executive Director of the Big Cypress Basin. Per the submittal documents, the project consists of locating and maintaining the following utilities in the requested easement: underground water supply wells and pumps, process piping, concrete slabs to support well pump and flow meters, a security fence around each well, underground water pipe from the wells to the [water treatment] plant [located adjacent to the' south], underground instnmtentation and control pipe, and overhead and underground electrical power supply; and, planting $7,500 worth of native vegetation to function as a landscaping screen along this new welif>ield site /state park easement line.

Geophysical logs also record a slight decrease in water - quality between 32 and 40 feet below ,land surface, which coincides with a zone of slight borehole widening (kyashout). The primary producing interval for at the exploratory test wells appears to be the interval from 37 to 32 feet below land surface. 1'he, original intent of the project Was to construct and test replacement water supply wells that Will not be classified as "under the direct Influence of surface water". groundwater is considered to be under the direct Influence of surface water when it Includes; a aigniffcant occurrence of insects or .other macro organisms, algae, or large diameter pathogens Such as Giardia lamblia'or Cryplosporidium, or significant and relatively rapid 'shlfts in Water .eharocteris:ties such as turbidity, temperature, abndluclivily or pH which closely correlate to climatological or surface water conditions. The method used to determine which g'raund water systems are Under the direct influence of surface water (LIDI) is described in chapter 2 of the Guidance Manual for Compliance With the Filtration and .Disinfection Requirements for Public WalOr Systems Using Surface Water Sources, adapted in subsection 62- 555.335(1), F.A.C„ and implemented in subsection 62- 550.517(2), F.A.G. Testing guidellnes partially distinguish deep wells in Well protected (confined) aquifers from shallow wells lh poorly confined or more.vulnerable aqulfer5. The minimum casing depth required for classification as a "deep" well is 50 feet, It was evident from initial observations during drilling that designing the wells so that the top, of the wel screens were'd©eper than 50 feet below land surface would have put the well screens into an interval of poorer water quality, and too close to brackish water. Other observations during drilling suggest that confinement is poor or absent, which indicates that the wells could still be cias,%lHe0 as UDI if water samples failed the rnicro- or macro - organism or water quality tests, Minimizing drawdown has the double benefit of limiting the potential for saline water intrusion and upconing as well as reducing the rate of infiltration of surface water, We designed the test Wells to maximize yield, minimize draWdbWn, and avoid upconi.ng, The wells were constructed with the well screen set from 37 to 22 feet below land surface, Which is almost twice the depth of the screens on the existing wells. The wells are also more than twice. as far from flooded open -cut limestone quarries which may have been a source of bacterial contamination.

Recommendations Rased pn the system evaluations and regblalory requirements described previously in this report, recommendations for treatment and site improvements will be identified in this subsection. The new .hater, 'supply wells will require additional Ired(rnenl such as filtration and chemical addition to comply with primary and sucondary drinking eater regul;1tions, Constituents of concern Include color, iron, and hydrogen sulfide. Because of imicrobial contamination issues in the existing water supply wells, It is recommended Thal, the project move (onward in two phases. Phase 1 would involve connecting the new water supply wells to the existing water Ifealment facility. Phase 2 would involve constructing water trealnmenf plant improvements to address the constituents of concern, .in preliminary discussions, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has indicated that this would be an acceptable approach. Specifically, the resulls of the water quality analysis for iron resulted in concentrations of 0.435 and 0.433 rngll.. The secondary drinking water standard for iron is 0.3 mg /L and therefore, removal ofatleast one third of the iron would be required to redut:e the concentration in the finished water to a concentration less than the secondary standard. it Is also our understanding that there have been historical complaints feiativa to iron in the water and this Ireatm,ent would help to alleviate those complaints, The groundwater analysis showed that the total sulfide poncctliralion ranged from less than 0.3 to 0,9 mg /L Rule 62- 555.315(5)(a), F.A.C, requires that varying levels of treatment be provided for sulfide removal depending upgn. the pH and total sulfide cortceniralion, At the measured pH of the groundwater and a total sulfide concentration greater than 0.6 mg /L Ilia Rulo requires that forced draft aeration with pH adjustment be provided to remove 90 11,o of the sulfides, in lieu of forced draft aeration either the iron removal system or the TOC removal system proposed can be designed and operated to also remove total sulfides.

TE[li 12 200�11J0 Page 27 of 33 Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park The groundwater samples were also. tested for disinfection byproduct formation potential which is performed by chlorinating the samples to sfrriulate.the disinfection process using chlorine, holding the samples for a designated period to time to repuesent the detention time within the distribution system and then measuring the samples for the concentrations of the regulated disinfection byproducts, total Whatomethanes (TTHM's),and total halciacetic acids (HAA5s). Those tests indicate the potential to form the regulated disinfection byproducts in the absence of treatment to prevent or Inhibit their formation, The results of the analyses indicated that the TTFIM formation potential ranged from 171 to 370 pgtL versus the. maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 80 pg1L, The results of the analysis Indicated that the HAA5 formation potential ranged from '110 to1570 pgIL versus the MCCof 60 pg1L. The disinfection byproduct formation potential reaction is a product of free chlorine that is used in the disinfection process reacting with natural organics In.the raw water which are usually measured in the form of total organic carbon, TOG, The TOC concentrations in the *groundwater samples ranged from 5.4 to 6,3 mg/L. Our experience from testing performed on other systems has shown that the TOC must be reduced to a Concentration In the range of 1,1 to 1.5 mgfL to prevent the formation of disinfection byproducts in excess of the MCL's. Therefore, some type of treatment should be jprovided to prevent the formation of disinfection byproducts that exceed the MCL. It is our understanding that the system currently feeds ammonia to produce a combined chlorine residual. Chloramines do not significantly react to Increase the level of disinfection byproducts. However, In order to obtain the required disinfection credits to meet the Groundwater Rule a period of contact with free chlorine is usually required to meet the requirements. Therefore, with the concentrations of TOC in the .groundwater, disinfection byproducts may forrn In excess of the MCL, prior to the application of ammonia to produce chioramines. If sufficient free chlor'irne contact time cannot be achieved prior to the disinfection byproducts exceeding the MCL, Then treatntelnt to reduce the concentration of TOC must be provided to meet the regulations or the plant most be rinodilled to meet the disinfection requirements using only chloramines. or an alternate disinfectant, Additionally, one sample had a color of 20 CU which exceeded the secondary standard of 15 CU. The color could have been the result of either or both the organics in the water (TOC) or the iron. in-either case treatment to remove these constituents would reduce the finished water color.

Description of when and under what program or fund the parcel under consideration was acquired (EEL, LATF, CARL, P -2000, Florida Forever, etc) or donated. (Local Manager] On June 14, 1974, the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund of the State of Florida ( "TIITF ") purchased a 24,625 -acre property from GAC Properties, Inc, that constitutes the initial area of Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. This purchase was funded under the Environmentally Endangered Lands ( "EEL") program for $4.39 million. 2, Description of the purpose for the parcel's acquisition (P -2000 or Florida Forever goals and criteria or similar purpose descriptions) or donation and any restrictions or conditions of use that apply to the parcel, if any. [Local Manager] TIITF acquired Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park to provide public outdoor recreation and to preserve and protect the natural, cultural and historical resources of the property from potential adverse impacts due to rapid development in the surrounding area. There are no known restrictions or conditions of use that apply to this parcel. 3. Description of the current level of public recreational use or public access of the parcel. [Local Manager] There is no designated recreational use or public access within the proposed easement area. The area is open land, as is the majority of the park. 4. Description of the natural resources, land cover, vegetation, habitat or natural community, if any, that are currently present on the parcel. [Local Manager, in consultation with the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI), if necessary] The majority of the proposed easement area is marl prairie with cypress dome and disturbed ruderal areas immediately to the south. The City will be required to maintain the area in an exotic -free state throughout the term of the easement. June 15, 2012 ARC Agenda Page 30 of 33 Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park 5. Description and list of the imperiled and other wildlife species, if any, that occur on or use the parcel. [Local Manager, in consultation with the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and FNAI, if necessary] Florida Panther and Florida Black Bear have been observed crossing the proposed easement area, in what would be best described as incidental, transitory use. However, the predominant natural community — marl prairie -- is not the preferred habitat for either species. Further, the proposed easement area is immediately adjacent to disturbed areas containing the existing wellfield, a vehicular road (Jane's Scenic Drive), and the water treatment plant. Such infrastructure and associated human presence can be a deterrent to regular use by panthers and bears. Wood Storks have been observed wading in the ditches within the easement area. There are no listed plant species within the easement area. 6) Description and list of historical or archaeological resources, if any, that occur or have the potential of occurring on the site. [Local Manager, in consultation with the Division of Historical Resources, if necessary] None. The proposed easement area is adjacent to the City water plant, and has a jeep trail through the middle of it. 7) Formal alternative siting analysis that includes a description and assessment of other potential alternative sites and why they are not feasible or practicable alternatives. [Applicant or Local Manager] The City of Everglades City's existing wellfield is located on a City -owned inholding parcel within the state park, and is within very close proximity to another City -owned inholding parcel containing the City's water treatment plant. Because the City's current wellfield must be abandoned due to unacceptably poor water quality conditions (microbial contamination), a new wellfield location had to be identified. However, the new wellfield must remain within close proximity of the water treatment plant. Otherwise, a new wellfield location of significant distance from the water treatment plant would result in the need for new pipeline infrastructure. The purchase and installation of new pipeline infrastructure would be cost - prohibitive to the City. Additionally, new pipelines would have to cross park lands to reach the water treatment plant, and would cause substantial impacts to wetlands within the park. Therefore, the only viable option for siting the new wellfield is to locate it within the immediate vicinity of the water treatment plant, which is wholly- surrounded by state park lands. June 15, 2012 ARC Agenda Page 31 of 33 Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park 8) Assessment of the impacts the proposed alternative use will have on the natural / historical /archaeological /recreational resources, if any, as well as on the current public use and purpose for the site or parcel. [Local Manager] Impacts are expected to be minimal and primarily aesthetic. They can be mitigated with the planting of native vegetation. 9) Assessment of the potential impacts on the larger area of conservation lands the parcel is located within (park, wildlife management area, forest trail, etc.) and on any surrounding conservation lands, if any. [Local Manager] In order to access park lands adjacent to the proposed easement area, park staff will require full use of the jeep trail that traverses the easement area. Not allowing access will hamper park management efforts. 10) Assessment of how the proposed package of consideration and "net positive benefit" for the requested alternative use of the parcel, such as the generally standard requirement for replacement land (depending on the parcel's size), will offset the impacts and benefit the larger area of conservation lands (park, forest, wildlife management area, trail system, etc.) the parcel is within and particularly how it will offset the impacts or benefit the natural /historical /archaeological resources, habitat and public recreational uses of the public conservation area the parcel is located within. [Local Manager] The primary public benefit of the proposed easement is to create a sufficient, reliable (and regulatory — compliant) supply of potable water to residents in surrounding communities, park visitors, and park staff. In order to offset the impacts to the park created by the proposed easement, the City of Everglades City has agreed to provide a package of benefits to the park consisting of four parts: 1. Donation of the City's existing 3.2-acre wellfield to TIITF in fee - simple title. Management of state parks is made more efficient and effective whenever non - TIITF inholding parcels are brought into TIITF ownership and added to the park. Consolidation of parcels within the park boundary eliminates the management challenges /obstacles that are inherent to disorganized "mosaic" patterns of parcel ownership. In this particular instance, the adjacent open -water borrow pit becomes entirely surrounded by park lands, thereby making management of this resource much more efficient. Additionally, by placing the existing wellfield parcel into TIITF ownership, a net increase in protected acreage is achieved. June 15, 2012 ARC Agenda Page 32 of 33 Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park 2. Removal of exotic vegetation from the 3.2 -acre City -owned existing wellfield. The City has agreed to treat all exotic plant occurrences on this parcel prior to the issuance of the proposed easement, This will ensure that the burden of exotic plant treatment correctly remains with the City and does not fall to DRP. Park staff have identified four species of exotic plants on this parcel (Brazilian Pepper, Lantana, Wedelia, Phragmites grass), 3. Purchase and installation of$7,500 worth of native vegetation. This will provide a visual buffer between the new wellfield (easement area) and adjacent park areas, thereby maintaining visual aesthetics consistent with the surrounding natural areas of the park. 4. Recontouring of the berm on the City -owned existing wellfield parcel, This will ensure that the berm does not substantially interfere with the surface hydrology in this area of the park, June 15, 2012 ARC Agenda Page 33 of 33 TIDE TABLE ; RESTAURANTS: 2501 -in e 1V1 u-L-Lr-.. l l(�1t�r�lc What's Happening in the Everglades City Area 2016, Snook Publications P O Box 617, Everglades City, FL, 34139 Volume Xe Issue #258 CITY COUNCIL REPORT by Marya Repko Mayor Sammy Hamilton said at the meeting on March 1 he has been busy negotiating for a new waste -water plant because the one we have is so old that it is "beyond patching ".

Tears, Jr., Director, Big Cypress Basin DATE: February 25, 2011 SUBJECT: Project Update: City of Everglades City Water Management System Master Plan Implementation; Water Treatment Improvements Program (Jennifer L. Woodall, P. E, Vice President, Tetra Tech, Engineering and Architectural Services)" Background: The City of Everglades City has experienced occasional detections of possible surface water influences on public water supply wells at its well field near Copeland. A possible source of the surface water contamination is the nearby flooded limestone quarry, which may have been excavated to the depth of the producing zone of the City's well field. Due to the historical bacteriological contamination issues at this well field, the construction of production wells into a deeper portion of the aquifer, not suspected to be under the influence of surface water, is desired. This project initiates the implementation of the proposed alternatives and recommendations of the Master Plan completed in FY10. The purpose of this project is to investigate the replacement of two existing potable water supply wells with new wells constructed into the deeper Gray Limestone aquifer. This phase of the project includes the design, construction and testing of an exploratory well. Also during this phase funding assistant from agencies offering qualifying grant programs will be requested. At this time it is expected that the agencies will be the FDEP and the USDA/Rural Development. How this helps meet the Big Cypress Basin's 5 -year Strategic Plan: The project has been formulated to conform to the Big Cypress Basins 5 -Year Strategic Plan by meeting the District's mission of water resources including water supply and water conservation. Funding Source: The BCB Board FYI Budget has $300,000 earmarked for this project. This Board item impacts what areas of the Basin, both resource areas and geography: The project will benefit the water management systems in Everglades City which is geographically located in the Big Cypress Basin Watershed. What concerns could this Board item raise? The Board may be concerned about the City's ability to implement the master plan. Several funding sources and programs for rural communities were identified in the Master Plan to highlight funding availability and eligibility requirements. The Big Cypress Basin staff is confident that the City of Everglades City is eligible for such programs. Whyshould the Big Cypress Basin Board approve this item? N/A If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Clarence Tears at ext. 7601.

Tears, Jr., Director, Big Cypress Basin DATE: February 25, 2011 SUBJECT: Project Update: City of Everglades City Water Management System Master Plan Implementation; Water Treatment Improvements Program (Jennifer L. Woodall, P. E., Vice President, Tetra Tech, Engineering and Architectural Services) Background: The City of Everglades City has experienced occasional detections of possible surface water influences on public water supply wells at its well field near Copeland. A possible source of the surface water contamination is the nearby flooded limestone quarry, which may have been excavated to the depth of the producing zone of the City's well field. Due to the historical bacteriological contamination issues at this well field, the construction of production wells into a deeper portion of the aquifer, not suspected to be under the influence of surface water, is desired. This project initiates the implementation of the proposed alternatives and recommendations of the Master Plan completed in FY10. The purpose of this project is to investigate the replacement of two existing potable water supply wells with new wells constructed into the deeper Gray Limestone aquifer. This phase of the project includes the design, construction and testing of an exploratory well. Also during this phase funding assistant from agencies offering qualifying grant programs will be requested. At this time it is expected that the agencies will be the FDEP and the USDA/Rural Development. How this helps meet the Big Cypress Basin's 5 -year Strategic Plan: The project has been formulated to conform to the Big Cypress Basins 5 -Year Strategic Plan by meeting the District's mission of water resources including water supply and water conservation. Funding Source: The BCB Board FYI Budget has$300,000 earmarked for this project. This Board item impacts what areas of the Basin, both resource areas and geography: The project will benefit the water management systems in Everglades City which is geographically located in the Big Cypress Basin Watershed. What concerns could this Board item raise? The Board may be concerned about the City's ability to implement the master plan. Several funding sources and programs for rural communities were identified in the Master Plan to highlight funding availability and eligibility requirements. The Big Cypress Basin staff is confident that the City of Everglades City is eligible for such programs. Why should the Big Cypress Basin Board approve this item? N/A If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Clarence Tears at ext. 7601.

The City is the interface to Big Cypress Swamp with the coastal wetlands lining the north coast of Chokoloskee Bay. This highly sensitive estuarine shallow water region is part of the "Ten Thousand Islands" area that is known to be a vital part of the ecology of Southern Everglades National Park as it is home to many species of birds, fish and other wildlife. The outer portions of the City are characterized by mangrove wetlands. The center of the City was artificially elevated in the 1920s through dredge and fill operations of the Collier County Company. The scope of work for this project is to prepare a water management system master plan for a 20- year planning period for the water, wastewater and storm water systems for the City of Everglades City. Everglades City provides water and / or wastewater service to portions of the surrounding areas of Copeland, Plantation Island and Chokoloskee. An aerial of the region including these surrounding areas is shown in Figure 1 -2. The City's storm water infrastructure is limited to the City limits. Existing water supply needs within the City's water service area are met with the surficial aquifer, and the water system is not able to meet current drinking water regulations for disinfection and disinfection by products. Alternative water supply use is limited to reclaimed water, which is utilized throughout the City for irrigation of medians and residential lawns. The City's low pressure wastewater collection system is in good condition and has reduced or eliminated infiltration into the collection system, but the existing wastewater treatment facility is in need of extensive repairs. Necessary capital improvements to repair or replace existing water and wastewater facilities will be identified in this master plan. Drainage within the developed areas of the City is inhibited by limited natural relief to convey storm water, extremely high ground water and significant tailwater from both tidal events and periodic storm surge. Specific improvements to repair or replace existing storm water infrastructure should be identified through a separate storm water master plan. The scope of work relative to storm water for this master plan is to generally characterize the drainage issues and outline recommendations for a storm water master planning effort. ® TETRATECH JLW /shn/masterplan/Section 1 Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 1 -1 093010 PROJECT GOAL The main goal of this master plan is to identify capital improvements necessary for the water and wastewater systems through 2030, and to identify a scope of work and costs associated with a separate storm water master planning effort. 1.2 PROJECT PRIORITIES Priorities for this project include: Public Health and Safety. The highest priority for any master plan is to ensure that public health and safety is maintained. This includes compliance with current and future drinking water regulations, compliance with reclaimed water regulations and maintaining a reasonable level of service for flood abatement. 2. Customer Expectations. The existing drinking water supply does not meet customer expectations for color. The proposed drinking water improvement options identified in this master plan will include options that address regulatory compliance as well as customer expectations in terms of color. 3. Compliance with Regulatory Agency Goals. Compatibility with regulatory agency goals is essential to a successful master plan. This master plan will focus on improvements necessary to bring the City's facilities into and maintain compliance with regulatory guidelines 4. Enhancement of Chokoloskee Bay and Barron River. Recommendations for a future storm water master plan that addresses best management practices to protect water quality are included in this master plan. 5. Protection of Other Natural Resources. The natural areas adjacent to or in the vicinity of the City include Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Park and Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. Protection of wetlands, groundwater and other natural resources within these areas is a priority. on sustainable water supply projects and water quality protect natural resources to the maximum extent possible. This master plan will focus management practices that OTETRATECH JLW /slm/masterplan/Section 1 Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 1 -4 093010 SECTION 2 DEMAND PROJECTIONS 2.1 SERVICE AREA DESCRIPTION Tetra Tech used both land use and parcel count to determine and confirm the previously established population and flow projections for the Everglades City service area. Although the City does not currently serve all areas of Plantation Island, Copeland and Chokoloskee Island, all of these areas were included in the demand projections for planning purposes. The USGS map illustrating these areas can be found in Figure 2 -1. 2.2 POPULATION PROJECTIONS Population estimates for the service area as established by Collier County, the City's Planning and Zoning reports as well as the Lower West Coast Water Supply Plan are provided in Table 2 -1 below.

In addition, the extreme remoteness of this community has likely contributed to a lack of activity promoting and providing adequate infrastructure and regulatory practices over the years. The City does not qualify to be under the Federal /State thresholds for requiring a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination system (NPDES) General Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit, although it is part of the areas currently under FDEP Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP) activities "Undergoing Restoration Supporting Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Implementation" for the Everglades area. 5.2 EXISTING FLOODING ISSUES Contour mapping was recently completed for Everglades City and the surrounding areas. The contour map is presented in Figure 5 -1 and indicates that the developed areas are at an elevation of 2 - 5 feet. The City and surrounding areas experience tidal and storm surge flooding. A rise in sea level will increase the frequency of these phenomena in the future. Photographs from a recent new moon tide are illustrated in Figures 5 -2 and 5 -3. In discussions with City staff, maintenance of existing outfalls is a significant issue contributing to existing flooding issues. Flooding is prevalent throughout the City, but the areas with the worst flooding are south of Freesia Street. 5.3 FLOOD PLAIN MAP The FEMA Flood Zone Map for the region is illustrated in Figure 5 -4. As shown in the figure, the majority of Everglades City and the surrounding developed areas are classified as FEMA Flood Zone AE, an area inundated by the 1 percent annual chance flood event, which has flood insurance and flood plain management requirements. The southernmost portion of the City and the adjacent Everglades National Park are classified as Zone VE, an area inundated by the 1 percent chance flood event with additional hazards due to storm induced wave velocity. ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 5.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 5 -1 093010 TETRATECH Everglades City Water Management System Master Plan FIGURES New Moon Tidal Flooding 5-2 I N T E T R,A T E C H Everglades City WateIr Management System Master PlanFIGURES New Moon Tidal Flooding 5 -3 5.4 AVAILABLE WATER QUALITY INFORMATION The Big Cypress Basin has two (2) water quality monitoring stations (BC16 and BC18) that are located on US 41. Monitoring station BC 16 is located on the S.R. 29 Canal and BC 18 is located on Turner River. The water quality data from these stations is available on the District's Hydrological and Water Quality Database, but since these stations are not in the immediate vicinity of Everglades City, this data was not analyzed. The FDEP maintains thirty one (3 1) water quality monitoring sites near Everglades City. A review of this data indicates that dissolved oxygen levels do not meet state water quality standards. Although the low dissolved oxygen is considered a natural condition, care should be taken to ensure that future activities do not contribute to this condition. Samples for total nitrogen, total phosphorous, and biological oxygen demand did meet state water quality standards. Water quality problems exist in areas where receiving water bodies, wetlands, or potential water supply areas are being contaminated by storm water that is untreated or improperly treated prior to discharge. The problems may include the introduction of toxic heavy metals, pesticides, excess phosphorus and nitrogen from fertilizers or livestock, floatable oils, suspended sediments (causing turbidity), or simply floating trash and other related problems. The Chokoloskee Bay, and eventually the Gulf of Mexico, is the receiving water body for the surface water runoff generated by Everglades City. Most of the development within the City was completed without construction of Best Management Practices (BMP) and discharges untreated storm water into the receiving water. There are many BMP's utilized for water quality treatment including: Wet Detention System, Dry Retention / Detention Ponds, Swale, Exfiltration / Filtration System, Biological Treatment System, Mechanical System, and Chemical Treatment Systems. Implementation of additional water quality treatment should be further considered in a future storm water master planning effort. 5.5 RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE ANALYSIS It is recommended that a separate storm water master planning effort be undertaken for Everglades City. In dealing with creating a storm water master plan for the City, the two main areas of involvement will concern water quality (pollution abatement and existing load reduction through BMPs) and water quantity (flood, tidal, and storm surge protection). The water quantity aspects of this community will be challenging as the City is constructed too low in the landscape to effectively be able to remove itself from harm's way in the case of flooding events caused by tropical storm surges and extreme tidal events. Still, flooding due to operation and maintenance of existing facilities (such as clogged culverts), inadequate infrastructure (such as undersized or missing inlets), and other causes not related to significant tidal or storm surge issues can NTETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 5.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 5 -6 093010 typically be addressed in low lying coastal areas. In addition, some tidal tailwater problems can often be addressed with one -way flap valves and other structural modifications in select areas where study indicates they are feasible. The Level of Service (LOS) would have to be set to realistic retrofit expectations such as resolving the nuisance flooding due to maintenance and inadequate infrastructure in lesser return frequency storm events. Tidal and storm surge events that reoccur at periods of ten (10) years or more will likely be impractical or impossible to resolve since the column of water in many of these events far exceed the highest ground elevations in the City by many feet. In the case of water quality BMPs, we are dealing with the pollutants generated in much lesser storm events (2.5 inches or less depending on the BMP) and there are many alternatives that can be retrofitted to provide higher levels of service. The storm water master plan will require that a good inventory of the storm water assets is made available for assessment and preliminary design. A cost - benefit analysis will be performed that estimates the LOS "lift" for the alternatives and compares that lift to the projected costs of the projects. The master plan should determine action items that address: 1) Storm water retrofit Capital Improvements Projects (CIP) 2) Storm water Replacement and Renewal activities (R &R) 3) Storm water Operation and Maintenance (O &M) Improvements Annual costs and a priority ranking of the projects should be made available as part of the storm water master plan for budgeting and planning future activities. These actions should be prioritized on a methodology that allows the community to receive the maximum benefits for needed improvements within the limited funding and monetary resources available. A draft outline of the storm water master plan for the City might include: 1) Inventory of Assets and Data Compilation 2) Watershed Delineation and Characterization 3) Assessment of Level of Service Methodology 4) Preliminary Assessment of Water Quantity Issues (Flooding) 5) Preliminary Assessment of Water Quality Issues (Pollution Impacts) 6) Assessment of Future Regulatory Issues and Requirements 7) Assessment of Funding Opportunities and Constraints 8) Recommendations ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 5.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 5 -7 093010 SECTION 6 REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS 6.1 INTRODUCTION The future planning of the Everglades City water, wastewater and storm water systems must take into account existing and proposed state and federal regulations. Summarized herein are existing and proposed rules and regulations that govern these facilities and the effects that these rules and regulations have on the City's facilities now and in1he future. 6.2 DRINICING WATER QUALITY REQUIREMENTS Public water supply, treatment, and distribution facilities must meet the requirements of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). The primary rules and regulations which apply to the Everglades City water system are Chapters 62 -550, 62 -551, 62 -555 and 62 -560, of the FAC, as well as the USEPA Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and its amendments. The purpose of these State and Federal rules and regulations are to help ensure public health by providing a public supply of drinking water that meets the minimum requirements of the SDWA (Public Law 93 -523), as amended in 1986 and 1996, and the Florida Safe Drinking Water Act (Sections 403.850- 403.864 of the Florida Statutes). Generally, the State of Florida adopts the national primary and secondary drinking water standards of the federal government, and creates additional rules to fulfill state requirements. There are instances where the FDEP drinking water quality standards are more stringent than those of the USEPA. There are also some contaminants which are listed in one set of the standards but not the other. Therefore, priority should be given to the strictest applicable standard documented. A complete list of existing drinking water requirements can be found in Appendix D. 6.21 Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1986 The enacted changes to the SDWA resulting from the June 1986 Amendments passed by Congress had a direct impact on the regulation, operation and expansion of the water treatment, transmission, and distribution facilities that provide potable water for public consumption. The regulatory requirements included new additional regulated contaminants, more stringent permissible maximum contaminant levels, increased monitoring requirements and stricter enforcement penalties. This subsection will provide a brief summary of some of the directives contained in the SDWA Amendments of 1986 that will provide an understanding of the NTETRA TECH JLWlslmlmasterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -1 093010 mandates established by Congress to guide the present and near future drinking water regulation program. The significant directives of the SDWA Amendments of 1986 and the corresponding section numbers are summarized below: • Section 1412(a)(1) directs that all previously promulgated National Interim Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NIPDWR) and revised primary drinking water regulations be deemed as National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWR). • Section 1412(a)(2) requires that all recommended maximum contaminant levels (RMCL) previously published be treated as maximum contaminant level goals (MCLG). • Section 1412(a)(3) requires that MCLGs be published simultaneously for any new NIPDWR which proposes a maximum contaminant level (MCL), • Section 1412(b)(1) establishes a source list of 83 contaminants to be regulated and a time frame for these regulations to be enacted. These are summarized below: a. 9 contaminants within 12 months of enactment. b. 40 contaminants within 24 months of enactment. C. Remaining contaminants within 36 months of enactment. • Section 1412(b)(2) allows the USEPA to substitute up to seven (7) contaminants onto the original list of 83, if they are more likely to be protective of public health. • Section 1412(b)(3) directs USEPA to publish MCLGs and MCLs for each contaminant which may have an adverse effect upon the health of persons and is known or anticipated to occur in public drinking water systems. This list of additional contaminants was published on January 1, 1988 and republished in subsequent 3 year intervals. MCLGs and MCLs are to be published for 25 of these contaminants within 24 months of listing and for the remainder within 36 months. • Section 1412(b)(4) provides for the setting of MCLs as close as is feasible to MCLGs which are to be set at a level at which no known or anticipated adverse health effects occur with an adequate margin of safety. NTETRA TECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -2 093010 Section 1412(b)(5) defines the term "feasible" based on the use of best available technology (BAT) and defines BAT for synthetic organic chemical (SOC) as the use of granular activated carbon. • Section 1412(b)(6) requires that BAT be listed for each MCL established. The USEPA Office of Drinking Water is responsible for implementation of the regulations mandated by the 1986 SDWA Amendments. The Amendments followed the publication in 1982 and 1983 by USEPA of a list of 83 contaminants the USEPA believed should be controlled by setting MCLs. The 1986 Amendments directed the USEPA to establish MCLs for all 83 contaminants within 3 years and subsequently add an additional 25 contaminants every 3 years. This schedule of additional contaminant regulation every 3 -years has been restructured in the 1996 Amendments due to the lack of resources required to thoroughly investigate 25 contaminants every 3 years. Thus, the requirement that USEPA regulate an additional 25 contaminants every 3 years has been eliminated. Instead, USEPA has the flexibility to decide whether or not to regulate a contaminant after completing a required review of at least 5 contaminants every 5 years. The SDWA Amendments of 1986 set an aggressive schedule for the establishment of new regulations. Numerous new regulations were proposed or promulgated each year from 1988 through 1994. This accelerated pace of establishing drinking water regulations has slowed considerably due to government shutdowns and resource limitations. As a result of these substantial regulatory delays, the U.S. Congress and the USEPA realized that reform of the SDWA was necessary. This need for reform resulted in the U.S. House of Representatives passing bill H.R. 3392 in 1994 which set guidelines for SDWA reform. This legislative action was followed by the U.S. Senate passing Bill 5.1316 in 1995 which set guidelines for SDWA reauthorization. Due to major differences between the two (2) Bills, a new Bill had to be passed by the House to reconcile it with the Senate 5.1316 Bill. On June 26, 1996, the House passed a bipartisan SDWA reauthorization bill (H.R. 3604) which was similar enough with Senate Bill 5.1316 that the SDWA was reauthorized in the 104th Congress. Highlights of the 1996 SDWA Amendment are: Consumer Confident Reports: Annual reports must be prepared and distributed by all community water system Owners. The reports must present information about the water provided, including information regarding detected contaminants, possible health effects, and the water's source. NTETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -3 093010 Cost — Benefit Analysis: The USEPA must thoroughly investigate the cost and benefit for every new standard to determine if the benefits of a new drinking water standard justify the costs. Drinking Water State Revolving Fund: This is a fund that was established to help States finance water system infrastructure or management improvements or to help assess and protect water system's source water. Source Water Assessment Program: Every state must assess its drinking water source (lakes, rivers, groundwater wells, springs, and reservoirs). The assessment must identify significant potential sources of contamination and determined how susceptible the sources are to these potential contaminants. Microbial Contaminants and Disinfection Byproducts: The USEPA is mandated to strengthen protection against microbial contaminants (including Cryptosporidium), while increasing control over byproducts of chemical disinfection. Operator Certification: Water system operators must obtain certification to help ensure water systems are safely operated. Note, in February 1999 the USEPA issued guidelines specifying minimum standards for water system operator's certification and recertification. Public Information and Consultation: The USEPA prepares and distributes public information materials and holds public meetings to encourage public involvement. Small Water Systems: The SDWA gives special consideration and resources to small water systems to help assure that the small water systems have the financial, managerial, and technical ability to comply with drinking water standards. 6.2.2 Florida Department of Environmental Protection As mentioned previously, the main chapters of the Florida Administrative Code which regulate water facilities in the State of Florida are Chapters 62 -550. 62 -555, and 62 -560. Each chapter is summarized below. Chapter 62 -550, Drinking Water Standards, Monitoring, and Reporting, FAC, set forth the water quality standards that must be met, the collection and analyses of water samples, monitoring frequency and reporting requirements. These standards include the required treatment for ground water systems under the direct influence of surface water. The USEPA and FDEP requirements for regulated contaminants are compared in Appendix "A ". ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -4 093010 Chapter 62 -551, Control of Lead and Copper, FAC, has been rescinded and in its place, the State of Florida has adopted the USEPA's Lead and Copper Rule 40 Code of Federal Regulations 141, Subpart 1. The rule covers the following items: in -home tap sampling for large, medium, and small systems, source water and water quality, parameter sampling, lead and copper action levels, corrosion control treatment, and public education and notification. Chapter 62 -555, Permitting and Construction of Public Water Systems, FAC, establishes the requirements for permitting, construction, and operation and maintenance of a public water system from supply through treatment storage and distribution. In general, this rule establishes setback requirements for water supply wells, number of water supply wells required, the method of construction of the water supply wells, requirements of water treatment, storage and distribution facilities, cross - connection control, and water, field and other samples required for permitting. In addition, this rule sets forth the requirements for permitting various types of raw water supply, treatment, storage and distribution systems. Chapter 62 -560, Requirements for Public Water Systems Out of Compliance, FAC, sets forth the acts that are prohibited and therefore considered not in compliance, requirements for public notification and requirements for variances, exemptions and waivers. 6.2.3 Disinfection /Disinfection By- Product Rule Existing and Future In the early 1970s, trihalomethanes (THMs) were either known or suspected of being potential carcinogens. Since the majority of water treatment plants in the United States used chlorine as a disinfectant, THMs were found in virtually every water treatment plant across the country. Development of this rule began in 1989 when USEPA developed a proposal outlining its initial posture on the rule. The initial rule set an MCL on total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) of 100 micrograms per liter with no MCL set for total haloacetic acids (THAAs). The initial rule was superseded in December 1998 based upon the mandates of the 1996 SDWA amendments. The current rule is known as the Stage I Disinfection/Disinfection By- Product Rule (D/DBP). The Stage 1 D/DBP Rule applies to all community and nontransient noncommunity water systems that treat their water with a chemical disinfectant for either primary or residual treatment. The formation of DBPs is primarily due to the reaction between free chlorine (C12) and natural organic matter (NOM). Total organic carbon (TOC) can be used as an indication of the relative amount of NOM in the water supply. The majority of all DBPs formed include species of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAS). THMs and HAAs have been found to constitute up to 94 percent of all DBPs with 64 percent being THMs and 30 percent being HAAS. ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -5 093010 In the formation of this rule, USEPA had to weigh the risks of cancer causing DBPs versus the risk presented by pathogens. The major changes to the rule include the lowering of the TTHM standard from 100 micrograms per liter to 80 micrograms per liter as a locational running annual average (LRAA). In addition, a limit of 60 micrograms per liter has been set for THAAs as an LRAA. The Stage I DBP requires conventional filtration systems to remove specified percentages of organic materials measured as total organic carbon (TOC) that may react with disinfectants to form DBPs. TOC removal percentages are dependent on alkalinity, as TOC removal is generally more difficult in higher alkalinity waters, and source waters after low TOC levels. Several years ago, it initially appeared that the Stage 11 D/DBP regulations would lower the TTIIM and THAA standard further from 80 and 60 micrograms per liter to 40 and 30 micrograms per liter respectively. To ensure protection of the public without decreasing the standards, USEPA proposed more stringent monitoring of suspected areas in the distribution systems where DBPs may potentially be a problem. The more stringent monitoring regulations require an initial distribution system evaluation (IDSE) to be performed which will refocus the sampling plans on points within the distribution system that better repressed the highest concentrations of TTHM and THAA. An IDSE will require monitoring of either TTHM or THAA for one year at a number of sample points throughout the distribution system. The decrease in DBP levels are anticipated to result from the transition from a running annual average (RAA) to a locational running annual average (LRAA). These changes in compliance determination and sampling plans will moderate exposure in equities across the distribution system which will reduce health risks. Studies will likely have to be performed to determine outer areas of the distribution system that may experience long chlorine contact times and thus the potential for higher DBPs. The USEPA proposed a Disinfectant/Disinfection By- Product (D/DBP) Rule in July 1994 to regulate both disinfectant residuals and DBPs. As a result of the regulatory negotiation process (reg -neg), the D/DBP Rule was structured into a two -stage rule. The D/DBP Rule applies to all potable water systems using a disinfectant. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) Amendments of 1996 required the USEPA to promulgate Stage 1 MCLs for the D/DBP Rule by November 1998. On December 16, 1998, the USEPA published the Stage 1 D/DBP Rule. The final rule provides for specific compliance dates as determined by the size of the water system. Public water systems serving a population of more than 10,000 were required to comply by December 2001. Public water systems serving a population less than 10,000 were required to comply by December 2003. In addition, all groundwater systems were required to comply by December 2003. The Stage 2 MCLs for the D/DBP Rule are based on data collected from the USEPA Information Collection Rule (ICR). The MCL values are the same in the Stage 2 DBPR as they were in the Stage 1 DBPR, but compliance with the MCL is based on different calculations. ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -6 093010 Under Stage 1, compliance is based on a running annual average (RAA). Under Stage 2, compliance is based on a locational running annual average (LRAA), where the annual average at each sampling location in the distribution system is used to determine compliance with the MCLs. The LRAA requirement will become effective April 1, 2012 for systems on schedule 1, October 1, 2012 for systems on schedule 2, and October 1, 2013 for all remaining systems. On January 4, 2007, the Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (Stage 2 DBPR) was entered into the Code of Federal Register (became a law). The following is an overview of the rule: Purpose: To increase the protection of public health through reduction of potential risk associated with disinfection byproducts (DBPs) throughout the distribution system. General Description: The Stage 2 DBPR requires some systems to complete an Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE) to identify DBPs monitoring locations and to characterize DBP levels in their distribution system. The four species of THMs and five species of HAAS that are regulated by the D/DBP Rule are as follows: THM Species Chloroform dibromochloromethane bromodichloromethane Bromoform HAA Species monochloroacetic acid monobromoacetic acid dichloroacetic acid trichloroacetic acid dibromoacetic acid As the D/DBP Rule is now written, the Stage 1 and Stage 2 MCLs for total THMs (TTHM) and total HAAS (THAAs) are as follows: DBP Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) Total Haloacetic Acids (THAA) JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -7 Stage 1 and 2 MCL 0.08 mg /L (80 ug/L) 0.06

#P200- 04546 -10003 -iii- 093010 SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 GENERAL Everglades City is a small municipality in the southernmost portion of Collier County as illustrated in Figure 1 -1. The City is the interface to Big Cypress Swamp with the coastal wetlands lining the north coast of Chokoloskee Bay. This highly sensitive estuarine shallow water region is part of the "Ten Thousand Islands" area that is known to be a vital part of the ecology of Southern Everglades National Park as it is home to many species of birds, fish and other wildlife. The outer portions of the City are characterized by mangrove wetlands. The center of the City was artificially elevated in the 1920s through dredge and fill operations of the Collier County Company. The scope of work for this project is to prepare a water management system master plan for a 20- year planning period for the water, wastewater and storm water systems for the City of Everglades City. Everglades City provides water and / or wastewater service to portions of the surrounding areas of Copeland, Plantation Island and Chokoloskee. An aerial of the region including these surrounding areas is shown in Figure 1 -2. The City's storm water infrastructure is limited to the City limits. Existing water supply needs within the City's water service area are met with the surficial aquifer, and the water system is not able to meet current drinking water regulations for disinfection and disinfection by products. Alternative water supply use is limited to reclaimed water, which is utilized throughout the City for irrigation of medians and residential lawns. The City's low pressure wastewater collection system is in good condition and has reduced or eliminated infiltration into the collection system, but the existing wastewater treatment facility is in need of extensive repairs. Necessary capital improvements to repair or replace existing water and wastewater facilities will be identified in this master plan. Drainage within the developed areas of the City is inhibited by limited natural relief to convey storm water, extremely high ground water and significant tailwater from both tidal events and periodic storm surge. Specific improvements to repair or replace existing storm water infrastructure should be identified through a separate storm water master plan. The scope of work relative to storm water for this master plan is to generally characterize the drainage issues and outline recommendations for a storm water master planning effort. NTETRA TECH JLW /slm/masterplan/Section 1 Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 1 -1 093010 PROJECT GOAL The main goal of this master plan is to identify capital improvements necessary for the water and wastewater systems through 2030, and to identify a scope of work and costs associated with a separate storm water master planning effort. 1.2 PROJECT PRIORITIES Priorities for this project include: 1. Public Health and Safety. The highest priority for any master plan is to ensure that public health and safety is maintained. This includes compliance with current and future drinking water regulations, compliance with reclaimed water regulations and maintaining a reasonable level of service for flood abatement. 2. Customer Expectations. The existing drinking water supply does not meet customer expectations for color. The proposed drinking water improvement options identified in this master plan will include options that address regulatory compliance as well as customer expectations in terms of color. 3. Compliance with Regulatory Agency Goals. Compatibility with regulatory agency goals is essential to a successful master plan. This master plan will focus on improvements necessary to bring the City's facilities into and maintain compliance with regulatory guidelines 4. Enhancement of Chokoloskee Bay and Barron River. Recommendations for a future storm water master plan that addresses best management practices to protect water quality are included in this master plan. 5. Protection of Other Natural Resources. The natural areas adjacent to or in the vicinity of the City include Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Park and Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. Protection of wetlands, groundwater and other natural resources within these areas is a priority. This master plan will focus on sustainable water supply projects and water quality management practices that protect natural resources to the maximum extent possible. ® TETRATECH JLW /slm/masterplan/Section 1 Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 1 -4 093010 SECTION 2 DEMAND PROJECTIONS 2.1 SERVICE AREA DESCRIPTION Tetra Tech used both land use and parcel count to determine and confirm the previously established population and flow projections for the Everglades City service area. Although the City does not currently serve all areas of Plantation Island, Copeland and Chokoloskee Island, all of these areas were included in the demand projections for planning purposes. The USGS map illustrating these areas can be found in Figure 2 -1. 2.2 POPULATION PROJECTIONS Population estimates for the service area as established by Collier County, the City's Planning and Zoning reports as well as the Lower West Coast Water Supply Plan are provided in Table 2 -1 below.

In the 2000 Census the unoccupied housing units accounted for 33% of the total homes. Applying the same percent of unoccupied homes to the total population, the existing population is reduced to 1,475 persons. To determine the ultimate population or build out condition for the Everglades City Service area, all the undeveloped lots are assumed to have a single family residence demand with an overall occupancy of 100 %. Incorporating these assumption yields an estimated build out of 2,465 housing units with an ultimate population of 5,127 persons. There are large areas surrounding the City which are classified as mangrove swamp in the SFWMD land use map, and these areas were not included in the build -out population estimate Table 2 -3 presents the anticipated population growth based on a growth rate of 2.5 %.

TETRA TECH JLWlsim/masterplan/Section 2 Tt 4P200- 04546 -10003 2 -5 051910 SECTION 3 WATER SYSTEM EVALUATION 3.1 GENERAL The Everglades City water system currently provides service to Everglades City, Chokoloskee, Plantation Island and parts of Copeland. The existing system consists of a water treatment plant located in Copeland that includes three water supply wells, a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, aeration, and chloramination. The existing water treatment facility is rated for a maximum daily demand of 0.504 MGD. An aerial of the existing treatment plant site is illustrated in Figure 3 -1. The system is not in compliance with existing disinfection and disinfection by product regulations. From the main water treatment plant, water is pumped approximately 7 -miles through an existing 8 -inch PVC water main to Everglades City. The City has a water booster station located in Everglades City that includes a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, chloramination and high service pumps. Tetra Tech inspected the above ground water facilities on April 6, 2010. During the site inspection, City staff provided information on existing and past problems with the water facilities. The information obtained during the site inspection and from the regulatory files is summarized below. Photographs from the site visit can be found in Figures 3 -2, 3 -3 and 3 -4. A general discussion of system deficiencies is found at the end of this section, and specific capital improvement options can be found in Sections 7 and 8 of this report. 3.2 WATER SUPPLY WELLS The City has three water supply wells, each cased to a depth of 15 feet. Each well has a supply capacity of 220 gallons per minute (gpm). Table 3 -1 includes a description of each of the existing water supply wells.

In discussions with City staff, microbial contamination is a frequent occurrence especially at the start of the rainy season. A review of the FDEP file indicates that the City has been notified that the Center well is microbially contaminated by the presence of Total Coliform and E. Coli Bacteria. Based on this contamination, the City must either: 1. Prove that the well is not microbially contaminated by the submission of 20 new well samples, 2. Provide treatment to achieve 4 log virus removal / inactivation, or 3. Replace the contaminated well. Based on a review of the file and discussions at the site, microbial contamination of the wells is a persistent problem. In addition to the microbial contamination issues, it was also noted during the site inspection that there is a persistent problem with iron bacteria in the existing wells. It is recommended that the City install additional treatment facilities to achieve 4 -log virus removal inactivation without exceeding disinfection by product regulations and replace the existing wells. 3.3 WATER TREATMENT PLANT The existing water treatment plant is located in Copeland and the general components are summarized in Table 3 -2 below.

Specific items noted for repair or replacement are summarized below: 1. The float system in the ground storage tank needs to be replaced. 2. A cover is needed over the chemical storage tanks located outside. 3. Air conditioning for the controls located inside the building is recommended. 4. The windows in the building are in need of replacement. 5. An interior storage space is recommended. 6. The generator is undersized and has reached its useful life and should be replaced. The improvements identified above are generally maintenance related, and are identified as such in the recommended capital improvements program discussed in Section 8 of this report. In addition to the improvements identified above, it is recommended that additional treatment facilities be installed to provide 4 -log virus removal or inactivation without exceeding the disinfection by product regulations. Recommendations for water treatment improvements are further discussed in Section 7 of this report. 3.4 WATER BOOSTER STATION The City owns a water booster station located in Everglades City. Water leaving the treatment facility is pumped to the water booster station and disinfected prior to being distributed to customers in Everglades City, Chokoloskee and Plantation. Customers in Copeland receive water directly from the treatment facility in Copeland. The water booster station components are summarized in Table 3 -3 below.

The Everglades City wastewater treatment system provides service to the incorporated areas of the City and to portions of Copeland and Chokoloskee. Plantation Island is not served by the Everglades City wastewater system; however, because the residents of Plantation Island utilize septic tanks, extending wastewater service to this area would be a benefit to the region. The existing wastewater treatment plant has a capacity of 0.16 MGD on an annual average daily flow basis. The existing treatment process generally consists of flow equalization, aeration, secondary clarification, filtration and disinfection. An aerial of the site is illustrated in Figure 4 -1. The existing wastewater collection system is a low pressure system utilizing individual grinder pump stations. Tetra Tech conducted a site inspection of the wastewater facilities on April 6, 2010. A summary of our observations is included within this section along with insights gathered from City staff and the regulatory files. Photographs of the existing facilities can be found in Figure 4 -2. Recommended capital improvements can be found in Sections 7 and 8 of this report. 4.2 COLLECTION SYSTEM The wastewater collection system includes approximately 245 grinder pump stations in the City of Everglades City, approximately 5 grinder pump stations in Chokoloskee, and two master pump stations (one in Chokoloskee and one in Copeland). All existing grinder pumps were manufactured by E /One, and all have a similar configuration with a check valve in the wetwell. Approximately fourteen (14) of the existing grinder pump stations are duplex and all other are simplex design. The collection system is fairly new and is generally in good condition. Recommended improvements include: 1. Electrical upgrades are required at the Chokoloskee master pump station. 2. The influent lines to both master pump stations need to be flushed to clear debris. 3. A valve vault is needed at the Copeland master pump station. 4.3 WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT The existing wastewater treatment plant is located in the City of Everglades City at Copeland Avenue and Kumquat Street, and the existing treatment components include: NTETRATECH JL,W /shnhnasterplan /Section 4.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 4 -1 093010 x L 3 O ETRATECH 0 N 100 Feet Everglades City Wastewater Treatment Plant #1 EVERGLADES CITY WATER MANAGMENT SYSTEM MASTER PLAN WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT FIGURE 4 -1 Everglades City Water Management System Master Plan Existing Wastewater Treatment Plant Figure 4 -2 • Flow Equalization • Aeration • Secondary Clarifiers • Aerobic Sludge Digestion • Sludge Drying Beds • Filtration • Chlorination • Dechlorination • Reject Storage • Reclaimed Storage • Surface Water Discharge Most of the treatment facilities at the existing plant include either steel or glass lined steel tanks. At the time of inspection, several of the tanks were in poor condition and in need of immediate repair. Specific items noted for repair include: 1. Flow equalization tank needs new mixers and controls, 2. Clarifiers need new internal equipment, 3. Return activated sludge pumps and valves need to be replaced, 4. Filter track, chain and rails need to be replaced, 5. Chlorine contact chamber needs to be replaced, 6. Gas chlorination needs to be replaced, 7. At least one of the five aeration tanks was leaking and needs to be repaired or replaced, 8. Both digesters were leaking and need to be repaired or replaced, 9. Drying beds need new valves, 10. Flow charts need to be replaced, 11. Reuse meter needs to be replaced, 12. Blowers need to be replaced, 13. An influent bar screen and grit removal system is recommended. In addition to the items noted above, the reclaimed water appeared foamy and turbid within the chlorine contact chamber. Based on the number of improvements needed, it is recommended that the wastewater treatment facility be replaced. Recommended options are presented in Sections 7 and 8 of this report. ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 4.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 4 -4 093010 4.4 SURFACE WATER DISCHARGE The existing operations permit allows for a surface water discharge of 0.1 MGD, AADF to Lake Placid Canal, a Class III Marine Water. However, the surface water discharge has not been utilized in several years. It is included in the new operations permit as a backup to the reclaimed water system. Prior to discharge to surface water, effluent is dechlorinated. 4.5 RECLAIMED WATER SYSTEM The City has two permitted options for land application of reclaimed water. The existing 0.115 MGD, AADF rapid infiltration basin and the 0.152 MGD, AADF slow rate public access reuse system. The reuse system consists of irrigation of residential lawns, landscape areas, roadway medians, the airport, the school and a park. Approximately twenty (20) homes receive reclaimed water for irrigation. Reclaimed water service is provided at no charge. TETRATECH JLW /slmlmasterplan/Section 4.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 4 -5 093010 6.2.4 Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Existing and Future The purpose of Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) is to reduce disease incidence associated with cryptosporidium and other pathogenic microorganisms in drinking water. This regulation also contains provisions to mitigate risks from uncovered finish water storage facilities and to ensure that systems maintain microbial protection as they take steps to reduce the formation of disinfection by- products. Under the LT2ESWTR, systems initially conduct source water monitoring for crytosporidium to determine their treatment requirements. Filtered systems will be classified in one of four cryptosporidium concentration categories (bins) based on their monitoring results. USEPA projects that the majority of systems will be classified in the lowest risk bin, which carries no additional treatment requirements. Systems classified in higher risk bins must provide 90 to 99.7 percent (1.0 to 2.5 -log) additional reduction of cryptosporidium levels. The regulation specifies a range of treatment and management strategies, collectively termed the "microbial toolbox," that systems may select to meet their additional treatment requirements. All unfiltered systems must provide at least 99 or 99.9 percent (2 or 3 -log) inactivation of cryptosporidium, depending on the results of the monitoring. The LT2ESWTR applies to public water systems that use surface water or groundwater under the direct influence of surface water. FDEP classifies wells "under the direct influence of surface water" (UDI) if the water exhibits the following: 1. A significant occurrence of insects or macro organisms, algae, or large diameter pathogens such as Giardia lamblia or Cryptosporidium. 2. Significant and relative rapid shifts in water characteristics such as turbidity, temperature, conductivity, or pH which closely correlate to climatological or surface water conditions. Wells UDI require additional treatment to inactivate the parasites commonly found in surface water. Giardia Lamblia and Cryptospordirum are extremely hard to kill with conventional amounts of chorine, and high dosages of chlorine with the natural organic matter (NOM) found in surface water can lead to the formation of DBP. Therefore water classified as UDI will require additional treatment to remove parasites and organics prior to Chlorination. Systems using ground water under the influence of surface water as a source must meet certain requirements in addition to those applicable to all public drinking water systems. These requirements are found in Chapters 62 -550, F.A.C., Chapter 62 -555, F.A.C., and the federal ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -8 093010 regulations. The required treatment techniques consist of installing filtration and disinfection water treatment processes that reliably achieve: a. At least 99.9 percent (3 -log) removal or inactivation of Giardia lamblia between a point where the raw water is not subject to recontamination by surface water runoff and a point downstream, before or at taps providing water for human consumption; and b. At least 99.99 percent (4 -log) removal or inactivation of viruses between a point where the raw water is not subject to recontamination by surface water runoff or, after December 31, 2005, exposed during treatment to the open atmosphere and a point downstream, before or at taps providing water for human consumption. For the purposes of subsection 62- 550.817(2), aerators and other facilities that are protected against contamination from birds, insects, wind borne debris, rainfall, and drainage are not considered to be exposing water to the open atmosphere and possible viral contamination. Filtration treatment plants are given the following log - removal credit based on the types of treatment as follows: Filtration Type Log - Removal Credit for the Removal of Giardia lamblia Viruses Conventional 2.5 2.0 Direct 2.0 1.0 Slow Sand 2.0 2.0 Diatomaceous Earth 2.0 1.0 RO, Nano or Ultra Filtration 2.5 2.0 Additional means of monitoring, testing and reporting are required also required by FDEP for wells under the influence of surface water, as outlined Chapters 62 -550, F.A.C. 6.2.5 Groundwater Rule The amended SDWA of 1986 mandates the USEPA to set disinfection requirements for all public water systems. The Surface Water Treatment Rule (SWTR) was the first enacted rule to govern these requirements. The SWTR set disinfection requirements for surface supply sources and those groundwater sources under the direct influence of surface water. A proposed Groundwater Disinfection Rule (G)YDR) was expected to follow in June 1993. Due to resource NTETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200 -04546 -10003 6 -9 093010 shortages within the USEPA infrastructure this proposal was delayed. Then on May 10, 2000, the Ground Water Rule (G)vVR) was proposed by the USEPA because the USPEA is mainly concerned about the susceptibility of ground water systems to fecal contamination. Hence, the purpose of the rule is to provide increased protection against microbial pathogens in public water systems that use ground water as the drinking water source. The following bullet items present the major requirements of the proposed rule: • System sanitary surveys conducted by the State and identification of significant deficiencies • Hydrogeologic sensitivity assessments for undisinfected systems • Source water microbial monitoring by systems that do not disinfect and draw from hydrogeologically sensitive aquifers or have detected fecal indicators within the system's distribution system • Corrective action by any system with significant deficiencies or positive microbial samples indicating fecal contamination • Compliance monitoring for systems which disinfect to ensure that they reliably achieve 4 -log (99.99 percent) inactivation or removal of viruses The rule was entered into the Federal Register in November 2006. 6.2.6 Sulfate Rule USEPA is currently investigating whether to move sulfate from the secondary contaminant list to the primary list such that it will be federally enforceable. Currently the FAC standard for sulfates is set at 250 mg/L. The USEPA had originally agreed to schedule a proposal in August of 2001, but the proposed rule was delayed to gather additional comments from industry professionals. Based upon review of water quality data, the water system is in compliance with the current sulfate mg/L of 250 mg/L. 6.2.7 Radon and Radionuclides Radon is a naturally- occurring radioactive gas that may cause cancer, and may be found in drinking water and indoor air. Some people who are exposed to radon in drinking water may have increased risk of getting cancer over the course of their lifetime, especially lung cancer. Radon in soil under homes is the biggest source of radon in indoor air, and presents a greater risk of lung cancer than radon in drinking water. As required by the Safe Drinking Water Act, NTETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt 0200- 04546 -10003 6 -10 093010 USEPA has developed a proposed regulation to reduce radon in drinking water that has a multimedia mitigation option to reduce radon in indoor air. The unique multimedia framework for this proposed regulation is outlined in the Safe Drinking Water Act as amended in 1996: • First Option: States can choose to develop enhanced state programs to address the health risks from radon in indoor air - known as Multimedia Mitigation (MMM) programs -- while individual water systems reduce radon levels in drinking water to 4,000 pCi /L or lower (picocuries per liter, a standard unit of radiation). USEPA is encouraging States to adopt this option because it is the most cost- effective way to achieve the greatest radon risk reduction. • Second Option: If a state chooses not to develop an MMM program, individual water systems in that state would be required to either reduce radon in their system's drinking water to 300 pCi/L or develop individual local MMM programs and reduce levels in drinking water to 4000 pCi/L. Water systems already at or below 300 pCi/L standard would not be required to treat their water for radon. FDEP is anticipated to accept the proposed regulation once the USEPA issues a final rule. USEPA updated its standards for radionuclides in drinking water with a rule becoming effective December 8, 2003. USEPA also set a new standard for uranium, as required by the 1986 amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act. The standards are: combined radium 226/228 (5 pCi/L); beta emitters (4 mrems); gross alpha standard (15 pCi/L); and uranium (30 µg/L). 6.2.8 Arsenic USEPA set a new standard for arsenic in drinking water on February 22, 2003. USEPA adopted the new standard of 10 ppb and public water systems were required to comply with the new standard beginning January 23, 2006. 6.2.9 Emerizent Pollutants of Concern (EPOC) The SDWA requires USEPA to establish a list of contaminates to aid in priority setting for the drinking water program. USEPA has established a list of contaminates which is divided into categories including: priorities for additional research, addition occurrence data needed, and QTETRA TECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -11 093010 priorities for consideration for rulemaking. Below are the nine (9) contaminants that have sufficient data and information to be considered for a determination of whether or not to regulate. • Acanthamoeba — microscopic amoeba commonly found in the environment • Aldrin — banned insecticides, used primarily on corn and cotton • Dieldrin — banned insecticides, used primarily on corn and cotton • Hexachlorobutadiene — used primarily to make rubber compounds • Manganese — essential nutrient, occurs naturally, and has a variety of uses • Metribuzin — herbicide used primarily on soybeans, potatoes, and alfalfa • Naphthalene — intermediary manufacturing product and moth repellent • Sodium — essential nutrient, naturally occurring element • Sulfate — present in the diet, naturally occurring element USEPA has determined that no regulatory action is appropriate at this time for these nine (9) contaminates. 6.3 SURFACE WATER QUALITY Regulatory requirements for surface water apply to the surface water discharge at the City's wastewater treatment facility and to the discharge of storm water from the existing drainage system. Ongoing TMDL implementation activities could impact the water quality requirements for either discharge. The Basin Management Action Plan for the Everglades City region is in progress, but no information is currently available on future potential surface water quality requirements. ® TETNATECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 6.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 6 -12 093010 SECTION 7 WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT ALTERNATIVE ANALYSIS 7.1 GENERAL Based on the system evaluations and regulatory requirements described previously in this report, potential alternatives for the water and wastewater treatment facility capital improvements will be identified in this section. Recommendations for other components of the capital improvements program can be found in Section 8 of this report. 7.2 DRINKING WATER TREATMENT ALTERNATIVES The following subsection summarizes potable water treatment technologies that have been used successfully in water treatment to meet the established by FDEP requirements. This subsection includes a brief description of each process and the specific contaminants that can be removed or treated by that process. Improvement alternatives described below include: 1. Alternative 1: Use of the existing water treatment facilities with new deeper fresh water supply wells, 2. Alternative 2: Installation of filtration facilities and use of the existing water supply wells, 3. Alternative 3: Installation of new brackish water supply wells with a membrane water treatment system. All improvement options are based on a water plant capacity of 0.5 MGD. 7.2.1 Alternative 1: New Fresh Water Supply Wells with Existing Treatment There is limited groundwater quality data available in the project area. However, based on the data that is available, there may be fresh water available from the semi - confined gray limestone aquifer, which would not be considered under the influence of surface water. Appendix H includes a report entitled, Hydrogeology of the Gray Limestone Aquifer in Southern Florida by JLW /sma /masterplan/Section 7 Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 7 -1 NTETRATECH 093010 the U. S. Geological Survey which has some information in the vicinity of the project. A test well at the existing water treatment facility would be required in order to determine if a fresh water aquifer exists in this location. For the purpose of this report, planning level costs for the construction of three (3) new water supply wells utilizing the existing water treatment facilities have been included in Table 7 -1. Table 7 -1 Alternative 1 Preliminary Planning Level Cost New Fresh Water Supply Wells with Existing Treatment No. Description Planning Level Cost 1 New Water Supply Wells and Pumps $600,000 2 Electrical and Instrumentation$120,000 3 Site Work $90,000 4 Yard Piping$120,000 Subtotal $930,000 5 Mobilization, Bonds, Permits, General Requirements$65,100 6 Contingency $279,000 7 Engineering$93,000 Total Estimated Planning Level Cost $1,367,100 7.2.2 Alternative 2: Existing Water Supply Wells with Additional Treatment The existing water supply wells are likely under the direct influence of surface water (UDI). Use of these wells will require additional treatment such as filtration to provide protection against parasites commonly found in surface water. Disinfection provides the primary barrier against the transmission of waterborne disease for drinking water, but filtration is needed as a secondary barrier when water supply wells are considered UDL Direct filtration refers to filtration without prior settling, and is the type of filtration that would be required at the Everglades City water plant. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filtration systems can be used to adsorb organic materials for removal. GAC has a structure that is extremely porous which allows water to pass through with relatively low headloss, yet has a wide variety of pore sizes which can allow for small and large organic molecules to be absorbed. After some time period, the absorptive capacity of the carbon ® TETRATECH JLW /sma/masterplan /Section 7 Tt#P200- 04546 -10003 7 -2 093010 will be exhausted. The carbon is commonly taken off -site to be thermally recharged or is replaced. Bench scale or pilot tests are typically necessary to determine the suitability for use with the raw water, the amount of TOC that can be removed, and carbon usage. Planning level cost information for the installation of a GAC filtration system at the existing water treatment facility can be found in Table 7 -2. Table 7 -2 Alternative 2 Preliminary Planning Level Cost Existing Water Supply Wells with Additional Treatment No. Description Planning Level Cost 1 New Well Pumps$90,000 2 GAC Filtration System $700,000 3 Electrical and Instrumentation$158,000 4 Site Work $79,000 5 Yard Piping$158,000 Subtotal $1,185,000 6 Mobilization, Bonds, Permits, General Requirements$82,950 7 Contingency $355,500 8 Engineering$118,500 Total Estimated Planning Level Cost $1,741,950 7.2.3 Alternative 3: New Brackish Water Supply Wells with Membrane Treatment A third option of constructing brackish water supply wells was considered. This option would require the removal of total dissolved solids by reverse osmosis (RO) membrane treatment. Reverse osmosis membranes typically reject a large percentage of monovalent ions such as sodium and chloride. RO membranes also require a greater feed pressure to remove smaller monovalent ions because the membranes are characterized by a smaller nominal pore size. RO systems also require a means of disposal of the concentrate stream that is subject to more stringent regulations. Preliminary design of membrane systems requires computer analysis to optimize the treatment process. The software can help project which membranes elements can achieve the desired water quality, determine feed pressure requirements, and calculate the percentage of permeate flow at optimum conditions. Planning level cost information for the installation of an RO water treatment facility can be found in Table 7 -3.

O &M costs for alternative 2 will be more than the City's current O &M cost due to increased energy requirements for pumping and regular replacement of the activated carbon. These increased costs will likely be in the range of 125 -150% of the City's current O &M cost. O &M costs for alternative 3 will be significantly more than the City's current O &M cost due to increased energy requirements of the reverse osmosis water treatment process. These costs will likely be in the range of 150 -200% of the City's current O &M budget. 7.4 DRINKING WATER TREATMENT RECOMMENDATIONS For planning purposes, components of alternatives 1 and 2 have been included in the capital program described in Section 8 of this report. It is recommended that the City construct an exploratory well at the existing water treatment facility to determine water quality in the gray limestone aquifer. However, for planning purposes, the full capital cost of alternative 2 is ® TETRATECH JL,W /sma/masterplan /Section 7 Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 7 -4 093010 included in the recommended capital program if water quality requires the addition of filtration to the existing water treatment process. 7.5 WASTEWATER TREATMENT ALTERNATIVES This subsection will review the recommendations for the required 0.5 MGD wastewater treatment facilities. Everglade City's current operating permit issued by FDEP includes stringent effluent limits due to the existence of a surface water discharge. The limits for CBOD5, TSS, TN, and TP are currently 5.0, 5.0, 3.0, and 1.0 mg/L, respectively. These limits generally correspond to a level of treatment known as "advanced wastewater treatment" (AWT). Less stringent limits are appropriate for spray irrigation of effluent; however, it is not practical to alter the treatment process immediately prior to initiating discharge, therefore, for planning purposes, it is prudent to assume continued provision of AWT. The removal of CBOD5, TSS, TN, and TP to the levels required for surface water discharge will involve the using one of the many modifications of the activated sludge process. Removing CBOD5 and TSS is relatively straightforward, and conventional activated sludge processes including aeration and settling can usually be employed to attain fairly high levels of removal for these constituents. Meeting a 5.0 mg /L limit for either these parameters would typically involve filtration or some other enhanced method of solids separation. Increased treatment involving removal of nitrogen and phosphorus still involves the use of an activated sludge process, however, anaerobic and anoxic conditions must developed at certain stages within the process to encourage the growth of certain organisms, and provide environments that will result in desired metabolic activities. These conditions can be attained by dividing the basins into specific zones or by operating certain equipment in a cyclical basis, as is the case with sequencing batch reactors (SBRs). This assignment is conceptual in nature and it is beyond the current scope to examine in detail every feasible treatment process modification that will provide AWT. Accordingly, this section only addresses conventional technologies that are routinely employed at facilities throughout the State of Florida that are similar in size to the Everglades City WWTP. Such technologies include: 1) a dual train package plant employing biological nutrient removal (BNR), 2) a dual -train membrane bioreactor (MBR) employing BNR, and 3) an SBR with appropriate phasing to provide BNR. Each process is discussed below. TETRATECH JLW /sma /masterplan/Section 7 u Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 7 -5 093010 7.5.1 Alternative 1: Conventional BNR Package Plant When BNR is required at a small to medium sized WWTP, typically, some form of the "Bardenpho Process" is often utilized since it is well documented, reliable, and cost - effective. Brief descriptions of the two most common configurations are generally described below. 4 -Stage Biological Nutrient Removal Process: This process configuration is generally known as the 4 -Stage Bardenpho Process and it is usually used when effluent limits for TN are very stringent. The flow configuration for this process is virtually the same as the one for the Modified Ludzack- Ettinger Process; however, another anoxic stage is provided after the aerobic stage to increase nitrogen removal. Also, a small aerobic or reaeration stage is provided after the second anoxic stage to increase the DO concentration of the mixed liquor prior to clarification to prevent further denitrification in the secondary clarifiers. The denitrification rates in the second anoxic stage are much lower than those in the first anoxic stage due to the low concentration of readily biodegradable organic compounds. The process provides high levels of CBOD5 and TSS removal and effluent TN concentrations as low as 2 to 3 mg/L; however, the process does not provide significant biological phosphorus removal. 5 -Stage Biological Nutrient Removal Process: The 5 -Stage process simply adds an additional basin to the 4 -Stage process. In this case, a fermentation stage is provided upstream of the 4- Stage Bardenpho Process and the RAS is discharged to the fermentation stage rather than the first anoxic stage. This process is generally known as the 5 -Stage Bardenpho Process or the Modified Bardenpho Process. The fermentation stage provides the anaerobic preconditioning necessary to achieve enhanced biological phosphorus uptake in a later stage, like in the A2 /0 Process. The subsequent 4- stages provide CBOD5 removal, nitrification and denitrification in the same manner as they do in the 4 -Stage Bardenpho process. This configuration is used when effluent limits are extremely stringent. Usually high levels of CBOD5 and TSS removal are achieved and effluent TN concentrations are in the range of 2 to 3mg/L. Without chemical addition, effluent TP concentrations range from 1 to 2 mg/L. If lower levels of TP need to be achieved, a small amount of alum is usually added upstream of the settling process. Figure 1, below, presents general flow schematic for various BNR treatment processes.

Appropriately sized reactors need to be provided along with the required mixing, aeration and solids separation facilities. In a small WWTP, circular ring steel or concrete tanks are usually very cost - effective. Under this concept two equally sized circular basins must be provided for reliability and each basin would include a concentric basin which acts as a clarifier. The annular space between the clarifier and outer wall is used to provide the requisite anaerobic, anoxic, and aerobic zones. Further, the annular space can include segments for flow equalization and aerobic digestion, if necessary. External filtration facilities are needed in addition to the biological process basins to ensure compliance with the CBOD5 and TSS limits. Also, a separate dual- � "t/. � TETRA TECH JLW /sma/masterplan /Section 7 ^�) Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 7 -7 093010 chamber chlorine contact tank would be necessary for disinfection. The only disadvantage this concept is the space requirements when compare to an MBR configuration. The estimated cost to construct a full conventional package plant including preliminary treatment, circular treatment basins /clarifiers, tertiary filters, chlorine contact chamber, disinfection system, aerated sludge holding tank, and effluent pumping system for a capacity of 0.5 MGD is approximately $5,700,000. 7.5.2 Alternative 2: Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBR) An SBR treatment configuration involves a batch process instead of continuous feed scenario. There are numerous configurations of SBRs, however the most common ones include two or treatment basins with mixing, aeration, and decanting equipment. This allows development of anaerobic, anoxic, and aerobic conditions, as well as intermittent quiescent settling conditions needed for solids separation. Typically, SBR's have four basic treatment stages which include: fill, react, settle, and draw. During the fill and react stages mixing and aeration equipment is cycled to create specific conditions that will result in the oxidation of carbonaceous material, nitrification, denitrification, and anaerobic conditioning that leads to increase uptake of phosphorus. The settling phase simply involves shutting off all mixing and aeration equipment for a given basin or cell to promote solids separation. Usually, the mixed liquor is allowed to settle until clear water or supernatant develops in the upper 30% of the tank. The draw stage most commonly involves the controlled removal of the supernatant from the basin. An equalization basin is routinely provided downstream of an SBR process to attenuate the peak flows that result from decanting. In the case of Everglades City, an equalization basin would be advisable, since filtration facilities would be necessary. SBRs can be quite reliable and cost - effective for secondary treatment; however, development of the conditions needed for the anaerobic preconditioning required for phosphorus removal could present some operational challenges. The estimated cost to construct a full SBR WWTP including preliminary treatment, rectangular treatment basins, secondary equalization basin, tertiary filters, chlorine contact chamber, disinfection system, aerated sludge holding tank, and effluent pumping system for a capacity of 0.5 MGD is approximately$5,100,000. OTETRATECH JLW /sma/masterplan /Section 7 Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 7 -8 093010 7.5.3 Wastewater Alternative 3: Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) A membrane bioreactor (MBR) is the combination of a suspended growth chamber or bioreactor followed by a membrane filtration, either microfiltration (MF) or ultrafiltration (UF). In general, the membrane system replaces the clarification and filtration unit operations. The MBR processes can produce a high quality effluent, particularly with respect to TSS and turbidity. One general advantage of MBR over conventional processes is the small footprint which results from operating at high mixed liquor TSS concentrations and from the elimination of the settling and filtration facilities. Another advantage associated with membranes is the elimination of sludge settling concerns. There are currently two basic types of configurations for MBR treatment facilities. In the first configuration the membranes are immersed in the biological reactor. In the second configuration the membrane facilities are installed in a separate basin external to the biological reactor. Internal membrane installation is preferred to the side stream configuration for domestic wastewater treatment. The internal configuration usually includes aeration to maintain solids in suspension, scour the membrane surface, and provide oxygen to the biomass. Membrane life and fouling issues are the most serious problems associated with MBR treatment systems. Fouling can lead to a significant increase in hydraulic resistance and frequent membrane cleaning and replacement may be required, increasing the operating costs. The useful life of a unit membrane varies depending upon manufacturer. There is not an abundance of long- term operating data to support claims made the various manufacturers which introduces a level of uncertainty when evaluating this technology. Currently, data indicates that the average useful life of a membrane is approximately 7 years, which is a potential disadvantage of the MBR process. For the Everglades City WWTP, an MBR treatment option would be very similar to the process configuration provided under Alternative 1. A 5 -stage process with anaerobic, anoxic, aerobic and reaeration stage would be necessary, however, the basins would be much smaller and clarification and filtration facilities would not be needed. The estimated cost to construct an MBR WWTP employing a 5 -stage BNR process including preliminary treatment, rectangular treatment basins, chlorine contact chamber, disinfection system, aerated sludge holding tank, and effluent pumping system for a capacity of 0.5 MGD is approximately $6,700,000. ^p.

A package BNR process will provide a consistently high quality effluent and significantly improved operability over the existing facilities. It should be noted that if alternative 3 were selected, the City could potentially utilize a significant portion of the existing site for another land use or sell the property. The planning level capital cost differential between alternatives 1 and 3 is approximately$1 million. An analysis of land value was not conducted to determine if the land value would justify the increased capital cost, but may be a consideration in future analyses. NTETRATECH JLW /sma /masterplan /Section 7 Tt#P200- 04546 -10003 7 -10 093010 SECTION 8 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM 8.1 GENERAL This section presents recommended capital improvements for the 20 year planning period. The recommended capital improvements program (CIP) should be evaluated every five (5) years to address population growth variations, regulatory changes, inflationary price increases and to update the status of the on -going capital program. 8.2 RECOMMENDED CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM The recommended CIP is shown in Table 8 -1, and generally includes the improvements described below. 8.2.1 Drinking Water System Capital Improvements Program Years 1 -5 Exploratory Welland Treatment Improvements The proposed drinking water system improvements for years 1 -5 include construction of an exploratory well to determine if a fresh water source that is deeper than the existing water supply wells and not under the influence of surface water exists at the water treatment facility, specifically, these improvements should include: • Construct an exploratory well at the treatment site in Copeland, • Evaluate water quality at the new deeper water source, • Perform pilot testing on the new water supply source, • Construct additional water supply wells, • Design and construct new water treatment facilities, • Consider interconnecting the Lee Cypress water system once the Everglades system is in compliance. Consumptive use permitting services are included in the CIP to address the request for additional information sent by the South Florida Water Management District in 2008. The recommended services include development of a numeric model, identification of wetlands impacts and providing the additional documentation requested. A preliminary project schedule for the exploratory well program can be found below: NTETRA TECH JLW /sma/masterplan/Section 8 Tt#P200- 04546 -10003 8 -1 093010 H U 00 a H W F U P1 0 � a O F cd" W � O N (1) u � Fw O - M C) F O w h t■ i N 00 00 O U � M O �o O ' c � o a �H O O O o o O o o A o O °o C o °o °o °o o N o o vi Vi o 0 0 o F" o M � Oi N M I �--! 6S 6S 69 6S 6S 6S cn 60) U' O O O o O O o 0 0 A 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Oa 0 to o00 0 00 0 0o F o y' O o o 6q h 6s in N o M r �--+ 69 6S 69 6S 69 64 r4 r..q V] b3 6R a v 0 0 0 O O 0 0 0 0 0 A O O O O O O O C, =, O O O O O O O O O O O 0 O O E O C> kn 0 v) 0 Rn 0 in 0 O 0 kn 0 vi 0 0 0 0 0 o 0 •-S N M N U, C) O o 0 0 0 o O o O o 0 0 O 0 Cl 0 0 0 Cl 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 in 0 C) 0 o 0 v, 0 Ln 0 O 0 v) 0 to 0 0 0 0 0 v) 0 0 0 ~ , a tn � 6MS 6MS s 6NS N 6s Gq Ce cC .

The Lee Cypress water system serves approximately 250 homes and is not in compliance with drinking water regulations. Interim Operational Changes to Address Regulatory Compliance Currently, at the treatment facility, the City doses the raw water with free chlorine prior to the water storage tank and doses finished water with chlorine and ammonia prior to distribution. Changing this protocol to include an ammonia feed point to the raw water prior to the ground storage tank should resolve the TTHM and HAA violations on an interim basis. With a combined chloramine residual, CT requirements cannot be met prior to the first drinking water customer. However, if the City were to cap the center well that has on -going microbial issues, and operate the remaining two wells free of total coli form or E. coli bacteria incidents, the system would be in compliance. Once the proposed exploratory / production well is completed (anticipated 2011), it should be evaluated to determine if placing it online prior to treatment improvements would improve TTHM / HAA or CT compliance issues. NTETRA TECH JLW /sma/masterplan/Section 8 Tt#P200- 04546 -10003 8 -3 093010 Maintenance Improvements In addition, it is recommended that the CIP include $500,000 every five years for water system maintenance or renewal and replacement projects. Typically these types of capital projects would be grant funded or financed in 3 -5 year increments. Specific water system maintenance projects that are necessary at this time include: Water Treatment Plant: 1. The float system in the ground storage tank needs to be replaced. 2. A cover is needed over the chemical storage tanks located outside. 3. Air conditioning for the controls located inside the building is recommended. 4. The windows in the building are in need of replacement. 5. An interior storage space is recommended. 6. The generator is undersized and has reached its useful life and should be replaced. Water Booster Station: 1. Ammonia system should be placed into service as soon as possible. 2. Fire pump was not operable and needs to be repaired or replaced. 3. Outdoor chemical storage needs a roof. 4. A control room with air conditioning is recommended. 5. The existing control system may require replacement. Capital Improvements Program Years 5 -20 Following completion of the improvements identified above, the remaining capital program includes on -going renewal and replacement and permitting services. Equipment renewal and replacement should be on an as- needed basis, but some general guidelines can be found below.

During years 15 -20, addition consumptive use permitting is included as it is anticipated that the permit will be in a renewal stage at that time. 8.2.2 Wastewater System Capital Improvements Program Years 1 -5 Based on the number of repair or replacement items noted at the existing wastewater treatment facility, a complete replacement of the treatment facilities is recommended during the first 5 years of the capital program. Additional details on the wastewater treatment facility recommendations can be found in Sections 4 and 7 of this report. In addition to improvements to the treatment facilities, it is recommended that the CIP include$750,000 every 5 years for maintenance or renewal and replacement. As with the water system, these types of capital projects would be grant funded or financed in 3 -5 year increments. Specific maintenance projects that are necessary at this time include: 1. Electrical upgrades are required at the Chokoloskee master pump station. 2. The influent lines to both master pump stations need to be flushed to clear debris. 3. A valve vault is needed at the Copeland master pump station.

For a single family residence the current water rates for Everglades City are: Water Base (includes 3,000 gal) $13.00 /month Usagage: 3,000 to 7,000 gallon$4.00/1,000 gallon Over 7,000 gallon $6.00/1,000 gallon Sewer Base$13.00 /month Usage $3.20/1,000 gallon In order to provide the City with insight regarding water and wastewater rates a comparison of the monthly bills of the utility to other utilities in the region is presented in Table 9 -1. The bills are based on a single family residential customer with a standard 5/8 "x3/4" meter using 4,000 gallons of water per month. It should be noted that when making comparisons for water and wastewater service, several factors have an effect on the level of rates and charges including: 1. Type and level of water treatment; 2. Type, level of wastewater treatment and effluent disposal; 3. Anticipated capital improvements and capital financing methods; 4. Plant capacity and utilization; 5. General fund and administrative fee transfers; and 6. Bond covenants and funding requirements of the rates. ® TETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 9.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 9 -1 093010 Table 9 -1 Monthly Bill Comparison Based on Residential Usage of 4,000 Gallons The rates shown for the other utility system were in effect as of June 2010 and are exclusive of local taxes, franchise fees, and surcharges. Table 9 -1 shows that the rates of Everglades City has the lowest monthly bills of the utilities in the survey. 9.2 FUNDING SOURCES In addition to traditional funding sources, user rates and charges, loans and bonds, there are several programs that provide funding in the form or grants or subsidized loans. Typically these programs are tailored for specific type projects (water conservation, public health) or for a particular segment of utility (small or rural communities). When a capital project qualifies for such a program facilities can be constructed at a reduced cost which ultimately translates into lower rates for the customers of the utility system.

Funding is based on the type of alternative water supply technology used, eligible construction costs and the amount of previous funding applied to a particular project. Fundable projects include reclaimed water production facilities, reclaimed water transmission projects, brackish water production facilities and aquifer storage and recovery systems. 9.3.2 Other SFWMD Funding Grant assistance is also available through the SFWMD's Big Cypress Basin (BCB) Board. Grants are available for 50% of project costs with additional funding available in certain cases. The BCB Board has already contributed a grant to the City for the preparation of this Master Plan and further funding is expected to implement the water and wastewater improvements recommended in the Master Plan. 9.4 FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) administers a number of programs to distribute state and federal funds for water and wastewater treatment and stormwater management. The following subsections highlight some of the larger FDEP programs. 9.4.1 Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Program FDEP's Drinking WaterState Revolving Fund (SRF) Programs provide low- interest loans and grants funded by federal (including funds from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act) and state appropriations to eligible entities to assist in the planning, design, and construction of public water and stormwater facilities and programs. FDEP solicits project information for the SRF every year from January 1 to February 15, and uses that information to prioritize projects for the following annual cycle. The loan terms include a 20 -year amortization with 30 -year amortization for disadvantaged communities. Small community assistance is available for communities having populations less than 10,000. NTETRA TECH JLW /slm /masterplan/Section 9.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 9 -3 093010 Preconstruction Loans Drinking Water SRF funds are available for pre- construction loans directed to public water utilities with public health risk priority or to fund activities aiming to achieve consolidation or regionalization. Pre - construction loans are intended to provide funds to complete the planning and engineering work necessary to proceed with project construction and are limited by a maximum project cost of $2 million. Construction Loans Drinking Water SRF construction loans are available to finance projects involving costs of$75,000 or more. These loans are available to virtually all public water systems regardless of size and are intended to provide funds to implement construction after planning and design efforts are complete. Disbursements of funds are made to reimburse the utility after costs are incurred. Preconstruction Grants Pre- construction grants are available to economically disadvantaged communities. A project sponsor must qualify as a financially disadvantaged community and must qualify as a small community. Grants are also limited to rate based community water systems. A project includes the planning, engineering, and administrative activities necessary to qualify for funding of a construction project. Pre - construction grants at 85% of allowances are provided, as long as the median household income in the community is less than the statewide average and the community has an associated public health risk component associated with the project. Pre- construction grants are limited by a maximum project cost of $2 million. Construction Grants Construction grants are available to communities that qualify as financially disadvantaged communities for projects that address a public health risk. Additionally, projects must meet the user charge (or equivalent) financial burden, benefit limitation, and priority criteria as defined in the drinking water rule. Grant funding for qualifying projects is limited to 65% or 85% of the estimated post - allowance costs for the public health component. Construction grants are limited to 25% of available funds or$750,000 in any single year, whichever is less. Projects qualifying for grants in excess of the amount available in a single fiscal year are segmented for deferred funding in subsequent years. The minimum segmented grant amount available in any one year shall be the lesser of the estimated adjusted post- allowance project costs or $375,000 subject to the 25% limitation referenced above.

Projects may include treatment, collection, transmission, disposal, reclaimed water reuse, and related facilities. The principal purpose of the project must be for domestic wastewater pollution control. Terms and rates are similar to the Drinking Water SRF Program 9.4.3 Small Community Wastewater Facilities Grants Program This grant program assists small communities in the planning, designing, and constructing of wastewater management facilities including wastewater collection, transmission, treatment, or disposal facilities. This includes facilities to reuse reclaimed water from wastewater treatment plants. An eligible small community must be an incorporated municipality, have a total population and a service area population of 7,500 or less, and have a per capita income (PCI) less than the State of Florida average PCI of$21,557. The highest priority for funding is given to projects that address the most serious risks to public health, are necessary to achieve compliance, or assist systems most in need based on an affordability index. A partial match of local funds is being required. 9.4.4 State Bond Loan Program The State Bond Loan Program is administered jointly by the FDEP and the Division of Bond Finance of the State Board of Administration. Funding is available for projects regarding water supply and distribution facilities, stormwater control and treatment projects, air and water pollution control, and solid waste disposal facilities. Up to $300 million in State of Florida, tax exempt, full faith and credit, Pollution Control Bonds may be issued annually at market rates. The costs associated with issuing bonds are low and local agencies benefit from the strength of the state's credit rating. Bond proceeds are subsequently loaned to local governments on a first come first served basis. Funds are disbursed to local agencies as expenses are incurred. The period over which loans may be repaid is negotiable and is generally representative of the useful life of the project. The loan interest rate and repayment period are the same as that on the State bonds. 9.5 COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANTS The US Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) program provides funds to support a range of activities including the OTETRATECH JLW /slm /masterplan /Section 9.doc Tt #P200- 04546 -10003 9 -5 093010 construction of public works and facilities to aid in the revitalization of urban areas. To qualify for these funds, a CDBG activity must meet one of the program's three objectives: • Benefit low- and moderate - income persons; • Aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight; or • Meet other community development needs that present a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community. Additionally, at least 70 percent of these funds (over a three year - period) must be used for activities that benefit low -and moderate - income persons. 9.6 US DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE OFFICE OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT 9.6.1 Water and Waste Disposal Loans and Grants The US Department of Agriculture's office of Rural Development (RD) provides long -term, low- interest loans and grants, as well as loan guarantees, to rural communities and small municipalities with populations of 10,000 or less. Priority is given to public entities, in areas with less than 5,500 people, to restore a deteriorating water supply, or to improve, enlarge, or modify a water facility or an inadequate waste facility. Preference is also given to requests which involve the merging of small facilities and those servicing low - income communities. The maximum term for all loans is 40 years; however, no repayment period will exceed state statutes or the useful life of the facility. The purpose of the Water and Waste Disposal Grants is to reduce water and waste disposal costs to a reasonable level for users of the system. Grants may be made, in some instances, up to 75 percent of eligible project costs. The percentage of grant funding is dependent upon the median household income (MM) of the service area in relation to the non - metropolitan MHI for Florida. Eligibility requirements are the same as for loans and typically the non -grant funded portion of the project receives loan funding. 9.6.2 Emergency Community Water Assistance Grants This grant program targets projects that prevent or alleviate a significant decline in water quality or quantity from the available water supplies of rural residences. This grant must be applied for within two years of the decline. Funding is limited to$500,000 for projects to alleviate the decline and $150,000 for partial repairs or replacements on an established system to remedy an acute problem.

The scope includes the following tasks: • Compile information relevant to the water systems • Describes the functional parameters • Highlight known system deficiencies and evaluate the existing systems deficiencies • Review and develop forecasts of population and water demands • Identify the system improvements needed to support current size; anticipated growth and development; and provide means to anticipate system improvements; • Provide guidance and recommendations through the evaluation of existing and future facilities. 2.0 Purpose The purpose of this Water Systems Master Plan is to provide the City of Everglades City a comprehensive planning document that gives basic information and guidance for improvements, sound growth and minimal environmental impact of the municipal water systems, including wastewater and reclaimed water; potable water; and stormwater. 3.0 Background Everglades City is located in Collier County, Section 12/Townshp 52 /Range 29, and is approximately 1.2 square miles or 748 acres in size. The City is surrounded by the Barron River to the west and north, Lake Placid to the east, and Chokoloskee Bay to the south. The City of Everglade City's population is 1,523 people and it currently provides water supply services to approximately 2,700 people within Everglades City, Chokoloskee, Plantation Island and parts of Copeland. The outer portions of the City are characterized by mangrove wetlands. The center of the City was artificially elevated in the 1920s through dredge and fill operations of the Collier County Company. The city consists primarily of residential, secondary commercial and public uses. 4.0 Water Supply General The following are the identifying characteristics of Everglades City's Potable Water System: • Identification number, 5110089 • Water use permit number, 11- 00160 -W � � MIAMI • FORT MYERS • KEY WEST Preliminary Data and Information Collection www.swcinc.net City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 • Location address of main plant for water treatment, 15414 Janes Scenic Drive, Copeland, Florida 34137 In the 2003 water use permit application (no. 020820 -2), the renewal of this permit was based projections for 2008. It specified a service area projection of 2,778 people with an average per capita use of 104 gallons per day and a maximum daily to average daily pumping ratio of 1.58. Included in this section are discussions of existing surface water supply facilities, storage reservoirs, pumping facilities, and distribution system piping. The facilities are located in the coastal environment in south Collier County. The current system withdrawals are from the water table aquifer via three existing withdrawal facilities drilled in 1982. The three wells are located 7.21 miles north of Everglades City, adjacent to the Seaboard Village part of Copeland. Storage The main plant contains a 500,000 - gallon storage tank with chlorination system and an offsite booster service pump station. Distribution The distribution system piping is an 8 -inch transmission main that is approximately 16 miles in length. . The City's distribution system includes one booster pump station designed to deliver water from one pressure zone to a higher zone. Initially the booster station was installed for pressure purposes. Recently the City installed a chlorine disinfection system at this site to help keep chlorine concentration residuals at compliance levels throughout the distribution system. Main plant The main treatment plant for water use is located in Copeland, Latitude 25° 57' 25.0393 ", Longitude 810 21' 44.7007 ". The current system withdrawals are from the water table aquifer via three existing withdrawal facilities. The three wellfields are equal in size at 8 inches X 25 feet X 220 GPM cased to 15 feet. The common well IDs are Center, East and West wells and are described further in Table 1, below, with aquifer capacity addressed in Table 2. Table 1.

Water Table Aquifer Capacity Information Source Status Code GPM MGD MGM MGY Water Table Existing 660 0.95 28.9 347 Aquifer The main water supply plant was cleared for chloramines disinfection in January 2007, and prior to that the City used free chlorine for disinfection. A 2009 inspection by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) indicated that chlorine levels were below the minimum required at various points in the distribution system. The FDEP recommended that a chloramines disinfection system be installed at the booster station to help the City meet the minimum required chlorine levels. In the past few years, the City has experienced consistent violations of Trihalomethanes (TTHM) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5s). On October 9, 2006, a Consent Order was issued against the City for violations of the Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) for both TTHM and HAA5s. The running annual average results for samples collected on June 13, 2006 were 388.9 pg /L for TTHM and 390.3 pg /L for HAA5s. These results are over four times the MCLs for TTHM and HAA5s, which are 80 pg /L and 60 pg /L, respectively. Attachment 1 shows a summary of results from samples collected from 2004 to 2009. Based on the results in Attachment 1, the City was put on quarterly sampling for TTHM and HAA5 in 2006 and 2007. Once the running annual average drops below the MCL, the City would then be required to conduct annual (routine) monitoring. On June 2008, based on the average results, the City went back to annual monitoring. Although the City was only required to collect annual samples, they collected 2 samples in the third quarter of 2008, and another in the fourth quarter of 2008. All samples taken are included as results by the FDEP. In the third quarter of 2009, the City again exceeded the MCL for both parameters based on the annual running average. These results show a dramatic increase in TTHM and HAA5 levels and this resulted in the requirement for additional disinfection at the booster station. Everglades City has been required to issue public notices in 2005, 2008 and 2009 based on violations of TTHM and HAA5 levels in their water system. From the second quarter in 2008 to present, the sample collection location for TTHM and HAA5 has been at Ted's Smallwood Store in Chokoloskee. From 2007 to March 2008, the sample collection location was Lot #18 at Parking Village. Groundwater Monitoring Samples for the drinking water monitoring wells are collected and analyzed by Sanders Laboratories, Inc. Samples are collected on a monthly basis and analyzed for Chloride, Groundwater Water Level and Specific Conductance. Monitoring data from 2008 and 2009 can be found on Attachment 2, and monitoring locations are summarized in Table 3, below.

This rule requires municipalities to reduce their reliance on the regional system for future water supply needs and mandates the development of alternative water supplies and increasing conservation and reuse. In addition to the violations and public notices mentioned above, a Consent Order was issued by the FDEP against US Water Services Corporation on March 19, 2008. US Water was in violation of Rule 62- 555.350(6), which requires operators of water plants Il / MIAMI • FORT MYERS • KEY NEST www.sweinc.net Preliminary Data and Information Collection City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 to maintain a minimum disinfection level of 0.6 mg /L Total Chlorine throughout the disinfection system at all times. US Water specifically failed to provide proper training to operators of Everglades City WTP to ensure that Total Chlorine and not Free Chlorine was tested after installation of a chloramines treatment. On July 2, 2008, a letter was sent to US Water regarding violation of the Consent Order by not sending operators to the proper training required within a specific time period and a fine was issued for noncompliance. On September 18, 2008, a letter from the FDEP was sent to US Water determining that all conditions in the Consent Order were satisfactorily completed. In June 2008, the water system exceeded the MCL for microbiological contaminants. The samples taken indicate the presence of fecal coliform in the drinking water system. The City was required to issue a public notice in August 2008. The City has been able to narrow down the fecal coliform issue to the wells, but have not been able to resolve the issue. Specifically, the center well has been disinfected and emptied several times, but continues to have issues with fecal coliform. City staff stated that fecal coliform issues typically occur at the start of the rainy season and it is also important to note that a deeper large pond is located adjacent to the drinking water wells. On October 29, 2008, a Request for Additional Information (RAI) was sent to the City based on the most recent Application No. 080929 -4. The scheduled date for permit renewal was September 2008 and the application was submitted on September 29, 2008. The City stated in the application that the maximum gallons per month needed for water supply is 13,800,000 and average gallons per day are 287,672. Other items addressed by the RAI include the following, with relevant additional information referenced in bold italics: • A new numerical model that represents the aquifer as no more than two layers and is in accordance with model criteria presented in Section 1.7.5.2 Basis of Review (BOR). • Provide potential wetland impacts as required in Section 3.3 BOR. • Supply a legible map of the service area (see Attachment 3). • Provide projected water use and identify the quantities needed for each component of the demand. The City is currently developing a Water Supply Facilities Work Plan which was due on January 8, 2008 based on development of the Lower West Coast Water Supply Plan. See tables 8 and 9 for past and projected water use estimates. • Results of calibration testing of identified water accounting methods need to be submitted. • Results for monthly withdrawals from each facility along with water accounting method and means of calibration. • Treatment methods and documentation of monthly losses. • Leak Detection Program documentation.

The City has created ordinances pursuant to water conservation, but did not find a plan or current documentation of implementation of the ordinances. • Documentation of AWWA Public Awareness Program implementation • Documentation of current status of reclaimed water availability. According to City staff reclaimed water is currently not being used because of high levels of grease. They hope that this level will drop in the low season. A specific grease control program for restaurants needs to be implemented. • Provide documentation of any interconnects. Currently the City provides water to its documented service area and there are no interconnects noted. • Submit a wetland monitoring program for review and approval pursuant to Section 4.5 B.O.R. Prior applications or permit renewals did not require wetland monitoring. The FDEP collects surface water quality data in the surrounding waterways which includes estuaries. See Stormwater section. The FDEP conducted a sanitary survey in 2009. The survey is included as Attachment 4 and contains an extensive list of required repairs and other information requirements regarding the potable water system. The most recent improvements (in 2009) made to the water plant include new hour meters on each of the three wells, and new pumps and motors were installed in the center and west wells. The Florida Rural Water Authority (FRWA) also conducted an accuracy test with the new pumps in place. Booster Station On July 28, 2009, the booster station was cleared for installation and use of a chloramines disinfection system, but changes to the plans made by the City halted final approval and authorization to operate. A partial clearance was issued by FDEP on August 12, 2009 at the booster station for just the addition of free chlorine due to the high levels of bacteria found. It is believed that this would combat the larger problem for bacteria in the system as the addition of just free chlorine would most likely result in an exceedance of TTHM standards. On March 29, 2010, the booster station site was cleared for ammonia addition to the disinfection system. During the April 6, 2010 site visit, the ammonia component was still offline and City staff was still waiting for the final word from FDEP. A conversation with FDEP staff on April 9, 2010 indicated that they contacted the City to go online with the ammonia addition and to work with FRWA throughout the process to help stabilize the system and ratios required. P At IAMI • FORT MYEBS • KEY WEST www.swcinc.net Preliminary Data and Information Collection City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 . Ammonia use in the booster station system was cleared by the FDEP on July 28, 2009. The addition of a Chloramines Disinfection System at this site was necessary to keep chlorine residuals at high enough concentrations throughout the entire water distribution system. As stated before, water has to travel along approximately 16 miles of pipes from the main treatment plant to the end users. The ammonia system is on line and ready to begin, but Everglades City did not get the system online prior to the required quartering sampling deadline of March 31, 2010, so they obtained samples and submitted results for the booster station site with only chlorine online at this location. DEP staff indicates that it is highly likely that when the results are submitted to the FDEP, they will be in violation of TTHM and HAA5s. Based on consistent exceedances of MCLs, the City will be required to issue another public notice in the near future. The booster station facility recently obtained a new generator and switch gear through grant funding or assistance from SFWMD. The high service pumps have a new control system, but City staff does not have a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the new control system and continues to rely on outside contractors for this simple detail. Surge protection is needed for many of the control systems and the outside chemical unit should be covered. Water Resource Availability The water table aquifer is a surficial aquifer under unconfined conditions and is composed primarily of fine- to medium- grained quartz sands and sandy biogenic limestone (source). The aurficial aquifer extends down from the land surface at approximately 5.0 feet (NGVD) to approximately 150 feet in the vicinity of the well field. The nearest surficial well is 37 feet deep and has a casing depth of 28 feet. Dry seasonal water level reported in 2000 was 0.67 feet. The total available drawdown is approximately 149 feet. The surficial aquifer is under unconfined conditions and is composed primarily of fine- to medium - grained quartz sands and sandy biogenic limestone. The potential harm to the water resource availability of the aquifer as a result of the withdrawal of the recommended allocation is considered to be minimal.

The nearest domestic user is unknown, but most users in the vicinity use.water that is provided by the City's wellfield. There is an additional water system located in Copeland that is managed by the Lee Cypress Water and Sewer Cooperative. The PWS number is 5110058. As of 2004, the recorded population served was 145 persons. The system consists of two wells (well IDs 11141 and 11142). Both wells are active with a depth of 18 feet. The water table is a surficial aquifer, and according to the FDEP, there are no potential sources of contamination in the area of the wells. A 5 -year ground water travel time around each well was used to define the assessment area. The 5 -year ground water travel time is defined by the area from which water will drain to a well pumping at the average daily permitted rate for a 5 year period of time. This water treatment plant currently uses a chloramines disinfection system, and the system has received violation notices for exceedance of MCLs for both TTHM and HAA5. The FRWA has recommended interconnection between the Everglades City and Lee Cypress water systems. This interconnection could benefit both communities and provide more capacity in the system for future population growth. Saline Water Intrusion The City's drinking water facilities are located in the coastal environment in south Collier County. Permits have required a monitoring program to track potential movement of saline water toward the City's surficial water table aquifer wellfield. Monitoring must be in accordance to the saline water intrusion monitoring (SALT) program. In order to provide assurances against the inland movement of saline water, it has been required that wells 1 and 3 be pumped at no greater than 200 GPM and that Well 2 be on stand- by status. In addition, it was required that pumps with a maximum capacity of 220 GPM be installed in all the wells. Chloride concentrations from the four monitoring wells for the years 1992 to 1994 and 1998 to 2002 are shown in Table 6. Data presented in former permit applications indicate that the groundwater becomes saline deeper than approximately 50 feet below land surface in the vicinity of the wellfield. Based on the chloride data collected, saltwater intrusion is not likely to occur. Also based on calculations provided by the City, the aquifer safe yield is approximately 657,847 GPD before saltwater intrusion becomes an issue of concern. Table 7 shows the average daily pumpage from 1998 to 2002. MIAA11 • FORT MYER8 • KEY (VEST www.swcinc.net Preliminary Data and Information Collection City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 Table 6.

Model results indicate less than 0.1 feet of drawdown that extends approximately 1,000 feet from the well field. Past permits found the potential for adverse impacts to protected wetland environments to be minimal. Sources of Pollution The closest potential pollution source to the wellfield is an inactive Collier County trash collection site — Carnestown Yard trash compost site — located approximately 1.4 miles south. The drawdown at this site is less than 0.1 feet, and therefore the potential for movement of contaminants and adverse impacts is considered to be minimal. Water Use Accounting Permits require the City to provide results of calibration testing of water accounting method(s) and equip all existing and proposed withdrawal facilities with approved water use accounting method(s). Recalibration data of each water pumping facility is required every 5 years.

In a 1995 Evaluation Appraisal Report (EAR), the City predicted a decline in population from 2000 to 2005. Based on BEBR projections, the City's population grew from 1,173 to 1,367. The difference in population numbers between those the City used vs. the projections in the table below may be because some local governments have used 2008 or 2007 BEBR projections. The projections are for permanent population and do not include seasonal influx of tourists. City staff is currently looking into compiling tourist numbers for this project. Table 8.

The new site EC -4 was monitored on December 31, 2009 and March 31, 2010. The FDEP staff also conducted an in -house analysis on data from 2006 to 2009 on Water Level (WL), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Chloride (CI) and Sulfate (SO4). These parameters were analyzed because they exhibited exceedances of the compliance limits at certain intervals. Compliance and current needs for improvement Below are current needs for improvement for the wastewater facilities based on correspondence between the City and SFWMD, an Operation and Maintenance Performance Report submitted on February 24, 2010, a draft permit for Permit Application No. FL0027618, and a site visit on April 6, 2010. The draft permit requires that the following repairs and improvements be made within the specific timeframe once the permit is approved. Within 60 days of permit issuance • Refurbish Clarifiers: both clarifiers need total refurbishing inside and out due to corrosion. • Replace digester and mixers. • Replace variable frequency drives on the equalization pump and the three RAS pumps. According to staff, two pumps and motors have been ordered recently. • Replace mixers and controls in the equalization tank • Acquire a new set of turbidity gel standards for turbidity meter • Replace air compressor and tank on irrigation hydromantic pressure system. • Improve protocol and enforcement of grease removal Within 120 days • Sandblast and paint rusted areas of steel tankage • Repair the raw auto sampler: raw sampler cooling unit needs repair or replacing Within 365 days • Repair east clarifier skimmer motor and gear box • Replace the contact chamber divider walls: a portion of the contact chamber divider walls are corroded • Repair re- aeration /decant tank • Assess overall plant corrosion Within 90 days after 3 month average daily flow reaches 0.1,60 MGD • Upgrade aeration capacity of the treatment plant Other problems that need to be addressed • Repair the north sludge digester tank walls • Repair or replace two back up blowers for the aeration system • Two back up pumps for the return sludge system are not working /new pumps have been ordered • Pretreatment units have to be drained to inspect for sand and grit. 14 MIAMI - FORT MYERS - KEY WEST www.swcinc.net J Preliminary Data and Information Collection City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 • Corrosion of metal on various parts of filter system • Replace return activated sludge pumps pipe and valves • Filter track, chain and nails need replacing • Thickener needs new pumps and controls • Drying beds need new valve stands and valves need to be relocated outside of the beds. • Repair or replace flow charts • Replace reuse meter needs replacing • Need to install an elevation gauge on reuse tank • Repair or replace four blowers and motors • Need bar screen and grit removal system • Hydromantic tank for reuse system is undersized • Water plant needs all new float systems and controls to operate wells • Cover over chemical storage tank located outside • New air conditioning for building • New windows for building • Interior storage space needed • New generator to replace old one which is over 25 years old • In the summer there is too much air in aeration tanks, causing nitrogen levels to be high. Excessive grease continues to be introduced to the system. The reuse system has been intermittently taken out of service. Elimination of grease will also help sludge settling process. The grease problem occurs more often during the high tourist season months. According to the City public works staff and the treatment plant operator the system is currently offline due to high amounts of grease in the system. They suspect that within a few months the reclaimed water system will be back online because of the drop in visitors and less demand on the restaurants. There are approximately 10 restaurants in Everglades City and also a handful in the surrounding areas served by the wastewater system. In addition, City staff stated that, in normal dry weather conditions the average amount of wastewater flowing into the facility is approximately 78,000 GPD. When it rains they are averaging about 120,000 GPD. This may indicate infiltration into the wastewater pipes, but according to the City, the Tallahassee FDEP staff conducted a thorough I &I inspection and found no areas where this would be a concern. Also, the wastewater pipe material is C -900 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). Most of the connections are PVC on PVC with an o -ring at the connection point. The City staff mentioned that iron T- connecto.rs are used in all areas where there are T connections throughout the piping system. They did not know the age of the iron T- connectors or when they were first installed. 15 'o kcr.; IAMI • FORT MYEOS • KEY WEST wwwswcinc.net Preliminary Data and Information Collection City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 Systems that are in good condition or have been recently improved • Inflow meter totalizer was recently calibrated. This brought the total flows back to within the permitted daily allowable flow. Average daily flow fluctuate around 100,000 GPD, depending on the City's events and seasonal fluctuation. The document attached shows that it is apparent that the totalizer was calibrated on December 15, 2009. (Attachment 5). • The low pressure collection system has been completed since the last permit renewal application and has greatly reduced the Inflow and Infiltration. • Replaced many of the private residential and commercial grinder pumps through grant funding. These grinder pumps transmit to the master lift stations and this in turn delivers the wastewater to the treatment plant master lift station. The meters on the community lift stations are compared to meter readings on a monthly basis. This has helped the City identify intrusion at the remaining small gravity systems. • Overall system pumps are in good working condition • All wastewater passes through at least two grinder pumps before reaching the communitor. The communitor is in good operational condition. • Final clarifiers have ample capacity (the system does not have primary or secondary clarifiers because of extended aeration process). • Traveling bridge filter system working as intended. • Media is replenished as needed and filter bottom appears to be functioning properly. • Aluminum injection in final aeration is working properly for PO4 removal. • Meter and totalizer have been recently calibrated. • Effluent auto sampler works well • Reclaimed water pumps and motor in good shape • Percolation ponds appear to be operating properly Reclaimed water It is stated in the City's Water Use General Permit Application No. 028020 -2 that a $3.3 million wastewater collection system was being implemented to eliminate the ORA wastewater treatment plant on Chokoloskee Island as well as the Lee Cypress wastewater treatment plant in Copeland. Wastewater from Chokoloskee Island and Copeland will be pumped to the Everglades City Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. A portion of the effluent that is discharged to two percolation ponds would go through an irrigation system throughout the City. The local school and airport are slated as receiving reclaimed water. Currently about 20 homes receive reclaimed water for landscapes. The reclaimed water is provided to the residents at no charge. 7.0 Stormwater and Water Quality Background Everglades City does not fall under the general MS4 category based on the 2000 census for overall population and density. It is outside the urbanized area boundary. 16 � k i IAMI + FORT MVERS - KEY WEST www.s+vcinc.net Preliminary Data and Information Collection City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 Through the years, pipes have been added to the City's stormwater system. It is documented that approximately 10,386 feet of storm drain pipes were added in 1960 and approximately 3634 feet of storm drain pipes were added in 1994, but it is not clear whether plans exist for these additions. Major storm events and hurricanes that have impacted the area have caused debris to clog many of the storm drains in town. There are approximately 20 outfalls to the adjacent rivers and surrounding waterways. There are approximately 31,760 feet of open swale areas. According to City Public Works staff, much of the existing system is poorly maintained due to lack of equipment and manpower. The staff does not have the proper equipment to clean out the storm drain pipes, and during most rains the City streets from the center of town north to the wastewater treatment plant tend to flood. The south end of town does not flood as much due to slightly higher elevation. Water Quality Everglades City is part of the Ten Thousand Islands (WBID # 3259M) water body. The water quality for this water body was assessed in 2008 for impairments. Dissolved Oxygen is listed as not meeting state water quality standards (due to natural conditions). Although the low dissolved oxygen is considered a natural condition, any new or future activities that increase nutrients or the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) will need to be addressed so as not to cause or contribute to the impairment, changing it from a natural condition to an anthropogenic one. During the planning period of January 1995 through December 2004, 284 out of 2,678 samples did not meet standards. During the verified period of January 2000 through June 30, 2007, 214 out of 1,199 samples did not meet dissolved oxygen standards. Total Nitrogen (TN), Total Phosphate (TP), and BOD values did not exceed the impairment thresholds for estuaries; as a causative pollutant could not be determined, the low dissolved oxygen levels were considered natural conditions. There are probably around 30 different stations sampled at various frequencies that went into determining the impairment. Attachment 6 contains station identifications and additional site information for surface water sampling sites based on FDEP water quality data found on their Storet database. NPDES Permits According to FDEP staff, only NPDES stormwater construction permits (CGP) have been issued in Everglades City in recent years. BMAP and TMDLs The FDEP watershed management program is currently implementing Basin Management Action Plans (BMAP) for Florida. BMAP is a blueprint for restoring impaired waters by reducing pollutant loading to meet Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) allocations. The priority areas with BMAP activities in progress include the Everglades West Coast (Attachment 7). This priority area consists of one combined BMAP for three of the six Everglades West Coast TMDLs. The three TMDLs include Hendry Creek Marine and Freshwater and Imperial River. 17 k ® h W11 • FORT MYERS • KEY WEST www.swcinc.net City of Naples Stormwater Master Plan Preliminary Data and Information Collection City of Everglades City, April 16, 2010 It was recommended by both FDEP and SFWMD staff that this water systems master plan include improvement ideas and protocols from the recent City of Naples Stormwater Master Plan.

(See photo below) - Chlorine shall be fed into drinking water proportional to flow. Where the flow rate is reasonably constant, this may be accomplished by electrically interconnecting gas chlorination equipment with well or service pumps or by otherwise designing gas chlorination equipment to operate only when well or service pumps operate. Automatic flow proportioning control of chlorinators shall be provided where the flow rate fluctuates significantly. Furthermore, automatic residual control of chlorinators shall be provided where the chlorine demand fluctuates significantly, and automatic compound -loop control of chlorinators shall be provided where both the flow rate and the chlorine demand fluctuate significantly.- Discontinue the practice of hand dosing and apply for a permit to install automatic disinfection at the booster station. Rule 62- 555.320(13)(a)5. t� ?: SANITARY SURVEY REPORT REMARKS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 1. The Department recommends that a permit to install disinfection at the booster plant or a location close to Chokoloksee Island be obtained, constructed and placed into service upon Department approval. 2. The Department recommends that water meters be provided at each well. 3. The Department recommends that a protected down facing well vent be installed on the east well. Note: A well vent is now required on both the Center and West well due to the current well modifications.

The reason for this is to make provisions for measuring wastewater flows and establish costs in connection with all system users. A flow rate of 250 gallons per day (GPD) per ERU is used for a typical single residential user. However, County regulations provide for allocating ERUs for utility users other than residential users such as commercial buildings, medical offices, churches, etc. "Commercial Area Map" in the appendix shows the commercial area in Study Area #1. The commercial area shown north of the Sebastian Cemetery along the east side of US #1 is within the Indian River County and the commercial area shown south of the Sebastian Cemetery between US #1 and the Indian River Lagoon is within the City of Sebastian. Study Area #2 is all residential users except for a church with preschool facilities, post office, and a community building. The total number of single residential users in Study Areas #1 and #2 is 388; which includes 31 vacant residential lots. There are a total of 57 non- residential parcels of land not served by existing sanitary sewer in Study Area #1 designated for commercial or other uses of which 9 non- residential parcels are vacant. Based on the Utility Department's guidelines for ERUs for non- residential uses, it is our estimate that approximately 332 total ERUs exist in Study Areas #1 and #2 including developed and un- developed non - residential uses. Of the 332 total non - residential ERUs, 192 ERUs have been estimated for vacant non - residential parcels and can be considered future users. Based on the above information, the total ERUs in Study Areas #1 and #2 is 720 of which 497 are existing ERUs and 223 are ERUs for vacant residential and non - residential parcels. In order to compare the cost per ERU for each of the three (3) alternative sewer systems, the total project cost of each alternative is divided by the total ERUs of 720 and the results are listed as follows: Gravity Sewer System Alternative: $6,944.44 per ERU Vacuum Collection System Alternative:$ 9,166.67 per ERU Low Pressure Pump System Alternatives: Grinder Pumps STEP System Pumps $11,944.44 per ERU$ 9,861.11 per ERU ig e/ .s t rr ,, a� T �- { r, rt. *1 e� —4 +� A , � QCopeland T Art Glass r r ,r SCopelandtaptist Church y k L ojpe,fand r i )r 0, i F ...4r- - � I [ .■ , � 7 �. ■� � Captain Jack'- \lr ok Tours , w  ?| If . � �. ■,. - �  � ■ ®,�� ; . jr y . f � - § ■ !� — .� - �  - _.$� � 3k§ Everglades Airport w � Gd{C N k 41, JL , m . � 7K � @ \ \ C_ � 2 m k � F8 - f Plantatior 7 I sland '77 At Zi it a 1% -A, LM a,,4 I Print Man Page 1 of 1 pAa,U�Q V\ http: // maps. collierappraiser .comlwebmaplmapprint.aspx ?title= &orient = LANDSCAPE &pa... 3/21/2016 Print Map Page 1 of 1 2004.

The Big Cypress Basin Board previously reviewed and recommended the projects for approval. "Local projects to improve water quality and flood control are essential to the quality of life for residents in the Big Cypress Basin," said Rick Barber, Big Cypress Basin Board chairman and SFWMD Governing Board member. "Supporting local communities in completing this work is a key component of the District's overall mission to protect South Florida's water resources." The funded projects in Collier County include: Lely Area Stormwater Improvements —The project will provide improved flood protection to a number of communities and existing lands east of County Barn Road, from Davis Blvd. south to Rattlesnake Hammock Road, without causing impacts to nearby wetlands and sloughs, hmprovements are designed to convey stormwater south into the Lely Main Canal. A weir is to be constructed north of County Complex and Eden School, providing water storage and helping to rehydrate remnant portions of a wetland slough. The use of swales will provide water quality improvements and ultimately improve the water quality of Rookery Bay. City of Marco Island Swallow Avenue Phase III Improvements —Work includes installation of two storm drain piping systems and structures along Swallow Avenue from the outfall installed m 2010 west to Collier Blvd. Replacement of existing storm drainage systems is critical to the preservation and maintenance of the existing storm drainage capacity and water quality. City of Naples Lake Manor Restoration — Restoration of a 5 -acre lake that receives stormwater from an 81 -acre basin will help,improve the water quality of runoff from Lake Manor discharging into Naples Bay. Project elements include dredging and disposing of approximately 7,500 cubic yards of sediments, creating a littoral zone and installing aerators and floating islands. Benefits also include improving surface water storage capacity and promoting aquifer recharge. • Everglades City Portable Generator —Purchase of a mobile generator to provide standby power at any of the 14 lift stations to prevent sewage spilling into recreational land and fishing canals and streams. About the Big Cypress Basin The Big Cypress Basin, part of the South Florida Water Management District, covers Collier County and portions of Monroe County.

South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) approved the 2005 -2006 Lower West Coast Water Supply Plan Update (LWCWSP). Under Florida law (section 163.3177(6)(c), Florida Statutes) Collier County must adopt amendments to its comprehensive plan within 18 months of the SFWMD approval of the update. These amendments include the development of a 10 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan and amendments to the following elements of the Growth Management Plan (GMP): Intergovernmental Coordination Element, Infrastructure Element, Conservation and Coastal Management Element and Capital Improvement Element. Under the requirement of the Florida Statutes, the 10 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan for Collier County must include analysis of all water utilities in the County not serving a specific local government. These utilities include: • Collier County Water -Sewer District (CCWSD) • Immokalee Water and Sewer District (IWSD) • Florida Governmental Utility Authority (Golden Gate) (FGUA) • Orange Tree Utility Company (OTUC) • Ave Maria Utility Company, LLLP (AMUC) Utilities not included in this plan are the City of Naples Utility Department, Marco Island Utilities, and Everglades City, each of which is responsible to develop a 10- Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan to be included in its city's comprehensive plan. This 10 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan for Collier County has the following objectives: • Identify population and water demands of each utility for the planning period of 2008 to 2018. • Present existing and planned potable and reclaimed water facilities that will be utilized to meet demand projections. • Identify sources of raw water needed for potable water supply to meet demands through the year 2018. • Identify the steps necessary to develop additional potable and reclaimed water supplies and specify when they must occur and how they will be funded. PAColller CountyVO -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan \06 Version 3 -Plan (Version Submitted to DCA)\T ATxecutive Summary.,1 c9126f2007 ES -1 Executive Summary Demonstrate that the water supply plans for each utility within the County are feasible with respect to facility capacity to be developed and consumptive use permit allocations required. Describe the conservation practices and regulations utilized by each utility to meet water supply demand. The Collier County 10 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan was prepared by Camp Dresser and McKee Inc. (CDM) for the Collier County Comprehensive Planning Department. CDM is a consulting, engineering, construction, and operations firm with a successful track record of utility -based planning and design projects. CDM is a leader in providing innovative water and wastewater services throughout Southwest Florida and the world. Information for the Plan was solicited from each of the utilities included. All five utilities provided some level of information to CDM for inclusion in the Plan. Where information gaps existed, information on the existing and planned facilities was gathered from various sources including the SFWMD LWCWSP update, SFWMD consumptive use permits, FDEP public water supply and wastewater treatment facility permits, and the Collier County Water Supply Facilities Work Plan, Final Report prepared by Greeley and Hansen, LLC, April 2004. After completion of the draft version of the Plan, copies were distributed to each of the utilities for review and comment. Each of the utilities provided comments and gave approval to their sections of the Plan contingent on their comments being addressed. The findings of the plan are summarized below for each of the utilities. Collier County Water -Sewer District (CCWSD) During the 10 -year planning period CCWSD has plans to develop two new potable water treatment facilities and two new water reclamation facilities to meet growing water demands. Table ES -1 summarizes the treatment capacity of the existing and planned potable water and water reclamation facilities for CCWSD. IrL addition to the construction of these facilities, CCWSD intends to construct new wellfields, finished water storage, and distribution lines, which are presented in detail in the plan. The information on CCWSD is fully nested with the 2005 Water and Wastewater Master Plan Updates, adopted by the Collier County Board of County Commissioners on June 6, 2006 and the Collier County 2006 Annual Update and Inventory Report on Public Facilities adopted by the Collier County Board of County Commissioners on January 24, 2007.

PACollier CountyM -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan \06 Version 3- Plan (Version Submitted to DCA) \TextlSecdon 1,doc92812007 IN Section 2 Water Service Areas 2.1 Overview of Collier County Collier County is served by 4 Public Sector Water Systems, including the County, the City of Naples, Everglades City, and the City of Marco Island. The County is further subdivided into the Collier County Water -Sewer District (CCWSD) and the Goodland Water Sub - District. The boundaries of the CCWSD, City of Naples, Everglades City, the City of Marco Island, and the Goodland Water Sub - District are shown in Figure 2 -1. In addition to the Public Sector Water Systems, Collier County is served by 4 Non - Public Sector Water Systems including the Immokalee Water and Sewer District (IWSD), the Florida Governmental Utility Authority (Golden Gate) (FGUA), the Orange Tree Utility Company (OTUC), and the Ave Maria Utility Company (AMUC). The boundaries of these systems are also presented in Figure 2 -1. There are also 2 Private Sector Water Systems wluch includes the Lee Cypress Water and Sewer Co- Op, Inc. and the Port of the Islands Community Improvement District, along with numerous small capacity water systems that are regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). 2.2 Individual Utilities and Systems 2.2.1 Collier County 2.2.1.1 Collier County Water -Sewer District (CCWSD) The CCWSD encompasses approximately 240 square miles. This area is bounded on the North by Lee County, on the south by the City of Marco Island service area, on the west by the City of Naples service area and the Gulf of Mexico, and on the east by the Urban Planning Boundary. The CCWSD was approved by referendum in 1969 and validated by the State Legislature in 1978 by Special Act, Chapter 78 -489, Laws of Florida. In 1988, the legislature approved a supplement to the Special Act, which included revisions to the District boundaries. This action significantly increased the size of the District to its current size of approximately 240 square miles. It also specifically excluded areas of the City of Naples, Marco Shores, Marco Island, and the FGUA, There is one portion of the CCWSD service area that is not served by CCWWD, that being approximately 17 square miles of unincorporated area contiguous to the City of Naples, shown as green hatch on Figure 2 -1. The Water -Sewer District Boundary was established by a Special Act, Approved by the Governor on June 26, 2003, and adopted as Chapter 2003 -353, Laws of Florida. The Rural Fringe Areas were incorporated within the CCWSD when the Board of County Commissioners approved Resolution 2003 -296 on September 17, 2003. From the adoption date forward, the County is responsible for providing water and sewer service in the Rural Fringe, which is approximately 38 square miles in area.

Should the County not be in a position to supply potable water to the project and /or receive the project's wastewater at the time development commences, the PUD Developer, at his expense, will install and operate water and /or wastewater interim facilities adequate to meet all requirements of the appropriate regulatory agencies. These developments may receive water and wastewater services from another centralized service area provider until the County is in a position to provide service. However, these developments and the required interlocal agreement to enact this interim service will be reviewed on a case -by -case basis. Non - centralized interim service such as potable water supply wells and septic systems are allowable interim facilities." Several areas are included in the plaiuung areas that he outside the existing District boundaries. These areas include the OTUC service area, the FGUA service area, and potentially other partially developed areas in Golden Gate Estates within the CCWSD. The OTUC is obligated to become part of the CCWSD in 2012. A composite map, provided as Figure 2 -2, showing the existing CCWSD potable and reclaimed water distribution systems, illustrates the actual area of the water -sewer district currently being served. 2.2.1.2 Goodland Water Sub - District The smallest of the County's districts is the Goodland Water Sub - District. Goodland is an island community, roughly one - quarter of a square mile in area, and is located off SR -92 about two miles east of Marco Island. This district was established by referendum in 1975. Potable water for the Goodland Water System is purchased from the City of Marco Island in the future. Collier County maintains pumping, distribution and storage facilities in the Goodland Water Sub- District. The Goodland Water Sub - District serves the community of Goodland as well as Key Marco. The location of the Goodland Water Sub - District is shown in Figure 2 -1. 2.2.2 City of Naples The City of Naples is another public sector provider of water service in Collier County. In addition to its corporate area, the City also serves approximately 17 square miles of unincorporated area contiguous to the City limits per an interlocal agreement with Collier County. The City allocates 38 percent of its system capacity to serve this unincorporated area. The enabling legislation, under which the City established its water service area boundary, is Chapter 180, F.S., Municipal Public Works Law. The City's existing water supply facilities are not addressed in this 10- Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan, since they will be discussed in the City's Plan.

The service area for the utility is shown in Figure 2 -1. 2.2.3 Everglades City Everglades City is also a public sector provider of water service in the County. Like Naples, Everglades City is an incorporated community that provides water service both within and beyond its corporate limits. The outlying unincorporated communities served by the City include Plantation Island and Seaboard Village in Copeland. These represent a demand of over 17 percent of Everglades City's system capacity. Having no existing facilities in the vicinity of Everglades City, the County has authorized the City to serve these unincorporated areas. The City's existing water supply facilities are not addressed in this 10 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan, since they will be discussed in the City's Plan. The service area for the utility is shown in Figure 2 -1. 2.2.4 City of Marco Island Water and Sewer Service Areas The City of Marco Island historically had been provided service from the private sector utility company, the Florida Water Services Corporation. A small portion of Marco Island's water and sewer infrastructure had historically been maintained by Collier County as the Marco Island Water and Sewer District. The City of Marco Island recently voted to purchase the system from the Florida Water Services Corporation. The City now operates the approximately 10 square mile system as a public sector utility. On February 24, 2004, the Marco Island Water and Sewer District was dissolved/ abolished by Ordinance No. 2004 -09. The infrastructure in that area was turned over from the CCWSD to the City. The City now owns and operates the only centralized utility services on Marco Island. The City's existing water supply to the Marco Shores area is being replaced with a bulk water supply from the CCWSD to service the area. The bulk supply from the CCWSD is estimated at 165,000 gallons per day. The City's existing water supply facilities are not addressed in this 10 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan, since they will be discussed in the City's Plan. The service area for the utility is shown in Figure 2 -1. 2.2.5 Immokalee Water and Sewer District (lWSD) The Immokalee Water and Sewer District, located in the northeast part of Collier County, was created by Special Act of the State Legislature following a 1978 referendum. Creation of an independent district provided the means for this unincorporated community to develop its own water /sewer system, which was necessary due to the distance from the developed coastal area of the County. The Boundaries of the District were expanded following a voter referendum in 2004 and a change to the enabling act was signed by the Governor in June 2005 (Chapter 2005- 298). This district is approximately 107 square miles in area and has a governing board whose members are appointed by the Governor of Florida. The boundaries of this independent district are shown on Figure 2 -1.

It also owns and operates systems in other Florida counties. Figure 2 -1 shows the boundaries for the utility. 2.2.7 Orange Tree Utility Company (OTUC) OTUC received a PSC Certificate to operate in 1987 and since then OTUC has served the Orangetree PUD, which is 2798 acres. In 1996, OTUC billing and customer service became regulated by Collier County Department of Utility Franchise Regulation. In 1998, OTU began servicing Collier County School Board facilities which now include Corkscrew Elementary, Corkscrew Middle, and Palmetto Ridge High School. In 1999, OTUC franchise area was expanded to include the Estates of TwinEagles with specific connections along 33rd Ave NE, and 33rd Ave NW, which are located within CCWSD service area. In 2006 Orange Blossom Ranch PUD was annexed into the OTUC franchise area. The OTUC franchise area is located 9 miles east of I -75, as depicted in Figure 2 -1. 2.2.8 Ave Maria Utility Company, LLLP (AMUC) AMUC, established in 2005, provides potable and reclaimed water service to the Town of Ave Maria. The town is located approximately 20 miles east of Interstate 75. The AMUC service area boundary is shown in Figure 2 -1. 2.2.9 Independent Districts 2.2.9.1 Lee Cypress Water and Sewer Co -op, Inc. The private sector utility providing water service to Copeland is the Lee Cypress Water and Sewer Co -op, Inc. The unincorporated community of Copeland is located on SR -29 about 3 miles north of US -41. 2.2.9.2 Port of the Islands Community Improvement District Another independent district in the County is the Port of the Islands Community Improvement District. This district encompasses approximately 1 square mile of land contiguous to and north and south of US -41, approximately 20 miles south of Naples. This district was created in 1986 by the Collier County Board of County Commissioners in response to a petition from the district's developers and was created as a mechanism to provide water and other services to this isolated area. The district is governed by an elected board of directors. 2.2.10 Water Systems Regulated by Florida Department of Environmental Protection The following is a summary of private sector water systems operating within Collier County, but regulated by the FDEP due to very small capacities. These systems primarily serve individual establishments, such as schools, stores, or golfing communities. The list was developed from the FDEP drinking water database.

The per capita demand developed and adopted by CCWSD is based on historical water demands within the system. Between 1994 and 2004, per capita demand ranged from 164 gpcd to 203 gpcd. While the observed trend of the per capita demand has been downward over the past five years, CCWSD believes it would be imprudent at this time to adopt a new lower per capita demand for planning purposes. Most of the reduction in per capita demand can be attributed to expansion of the reclaimed water distribution system. While CCWSD intends to continue development of the reclaimed water distribution system, there is a limit as to how much additional potable use can be offset. Currently, CCWSD reuses more than 85 percent of the reclaimed water it produces. CCWSD is taking steps to better address reclaimed water surpluses as is discussed in Section 4.1.3.2. 3.2.2 Immokalee Water and Sewer District (IWSD) Table 3 -4 shows the projected populations for the areas served and to be served within the existing IWSD service area.

The location of each of these wellfields is illustrated in Figure 4 -1. The North Hawthorn RO and South Hawthorn RO wellfields contain wells that tap the Hawthorn Zone 1 (HZ1) and the Lower Hawthorn (LH) aquifers, both of which tend to be brackish in those areas of Collier County. The wellfields serve the low pressure reverse osmosis (LPRO) treatment trains at the North County Regional Water Treatment Plant (NCRWTP) and the South County Regional Water Treatment Plant (SCRWTP), respectively. The Golden Gate Tamiami Wellfield contains wells that tap the Lower Tamiami (LT) Aquifer, which contains freshwater. The wellfield serves the membrane filtration (MF) equipment at the NCRWTP and the lime softening (LS) equipment at the SCRWTP. Tables 4-2,4-3, and 4 -4 summarize the existing wells in the Golden Gate Tamiami Wellfield, the North Hawthorn RO Wellfield, and the South Hawthorn RO Wellfield, respectively. 4.1.2.2 Water Treatment Facilities The CCWSD is served by two water treatment plants (WTPs), the NCRWTP and the SCRWTP, which are shown in Figure 4 -2. The NCRWTP is located on the north side of Vanderbilt Beach Road Extension east of CR -951 in the northeastern quadrant of the service area. The plant utilizes groundwater withdrawn from the LT, HZ1 and LH aquifers. Water from the LT Aquifer is treated using MF, while water from the HZ1 and LH aquifers are treated by LPRO.

It is calculated by dividing the finished water capacity by the efficiency of the treatment process 4.1.2.3 Pumping, Storage, and Transmission The existing transmission facilities consist of transmission pipelines, water storage tanks, an aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) system, and pumping facilities. The storage and pumping facilities utilized by CCWSD are shown in Figure 4 -3. The pumping facilities are comprised of high service pumps located at both water treatment plants, 4 water booster pumping stations and an in -line booster pump station. Ground storage tanks at the treatment facilities and at the booster pumping stations provide system storage and reserve capacity to help meet the peak hourly demands of the system. The booster pumping stations and storage tanks are located at the Isle of Capri, Manatee Road, and Carica Road. The CCWSD maintains and operates the Goodland Water Booster Pumping Station, which is part of the Goodland Water Sub - District. An in-line booster station is located in the northwest portion of the system near Vanderbilt Drive. In addition to the traditional storage and pumping facilities mentioned above, CCWSD operates a 1 MGD potable water ASR system at the Manatee Road Pumping Station. Potable water is stored at various strategic points in the CCWSD distribution system to help meet diurnal peak system and fire flow demands.

The distribution system includes water mains designated as either transmission or distribution mains. The CCWSD pipelines 16 inches in diameter and larger are generally termed transmission mains. These are typically located along arterial and collector roadways and convey water to major demand areas. Pipelines smaller than 16 inches in diameter are generally called distribution mains, branching off the transmission system to supply individual users. The transmission mains and major distribution mains that serve the CCWSD are illustrated in Figure 4 -4. Overall, the CCWSD owns and maintains over 800 miles of water transmission and distribution pipelines, up to 42 inches in diameter, with over 49,000 individual service connections. 4.1.3 Reclaimed Water Facilities CCWSD operates the largest reclaimed water system in South Florida. Currently, the system serves 28 customers with contractual commitments of 22.3 MGD. The majority of the existing customer base is golf courses, residential communities, environmental mitigation areas, county parks, and roadway medians. There are more than 140 additional entities within Collier County that have requested connection to the reclaimed water system and are currently on a waiting list. 4.1.3.1 Water Reclamation Facilities CCWSD currently operates two water reclamation facilities (WRFs), the North County Water Reclamation Facility ( NCWRF) and the South County Water Reclamation Facility ( SCWRF), which are shown in Figure 4 -5. Table 4 -7 summaries the capacities of the existing reclaimed water facilities. Table 4 -7.

The amount of reclaimed water available is based on influent flow and treatment efficiency. 4.1.3.2 Reclaimed Water Pumping, Storage, and Transmission The reclaimed water distribution system, which consists of 125 miles of transmission and distribution pipeline, is currently divided into two services areas; one in the north and one in the south, that are supplied by the respective WRF. There are a few small interconnects between the two service areas, but the system is hydraulically limited from passing large volumes of water from one service area to the other. This issue is currently being addressed by the development of a reclaimed water booster pump PAColller County110 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan \06 Version 3 - Plan (Version Submitted to DCA) \Text\Sectlon 4.doc92812007 4 -10 a Y �A BEACH y 66 r U i6' 6" 0 LEE CO �o 16• 1 COLLIER CO w 16' 16' I � o CR 8 10" a 12' 12' 17 18' � w a R 858 d 1 6• a ¢ 20' ( 846) 1�1 12' -_� N20'LES -1!1 MAW W 1 20' 20' 20' 2. -[1 !

Reclaimed water produced at the two WRFs can be temporarily stored in on -site ponds. Storage of up to 1 MG is also available at the former Pelican Bay WRF, which was decommissioned in 2006 and converted to a reclaimed water storage and pumping facility. Additional storage is achieved in the distribution system which provides 130 MG of wet weather storage. Excess water is pumped into deep injection wells (DIWs) for disposal. Figure 4 -6 presents the reclaimed water distribution system. One of the significant issues that the reclaimed water system must contend with is wet weather storage. During the wet season, demand for reclaimed water drops off sharply and CCWSD is forced to put the reclaimed water down its DIWs from which it cannot be recovered. The County has identified this scenario as a waste of a valuable resource and is making efforts to reduce the amount of reclaimed water that is disposed during the wet season. To this end, a reclaimed water ASR is being developed. The initial phase of the reclaimed water ASR is ongoing with cycle testing to commence within the next few months. Following 18 months of cycle testing, the ASR will be put into service, where it is expected to provide between 0.5 and 1 MGD of reclaimed water to meet peak season demands. 4.1.3.3 Supplemental Wellfields In addition to the two existing WRFs, pumping and storage facilities, CCWSD utilizes two supplemental wellfields to meet its contractual requirements. The locations of the two wellfields, known as the Pelican Bay Wellfield and the Immokalee (Mule Pen Quarry) Wellfield, are shown in Figure 4 -6. The wellfields are permitted under CUP 11- 00052 -W, described in Section 4.1.1, which allows CCWSD to withdraw water from the Lower Tamiami Aquifer in the Pelican Bay Wellfield and the Water -Table aquifer at the Immokalee Wellfield, to meet peak demands within the reclaimed water distribution system. A summary of the wells that make up these wellfields is provided in Table 4 -8.

The existing permitted capacity of the RIB system is 1.25 MGD, which is sufficient to meet the disposal need of the existing 0.95 MGD facility and the planned Phase I expansion of the facility to 1.25 MGD AADF, scheduled to come on -line in 2008. Two planned future expansions of the facility will increase the capacity to 2.00 MGD by 2010. The FGUA considered the possibility of utilizing water reclamation as a possible alternative disposal method in its 2006 Reuse Feasibility Report, but determined that upgrading the treatment facilities to FDEP public access reuse standards and developing a reclaimed water distribution system within the service area would be cost prohibitive. As an alternative the FGUA has decided to construct a Class 1 deep injection well to meet future effluent disposal needs. 4.4 Orange Tree Utility Company (OTUC) 4.4.1 Water Supply Permits The OTUC maintains one CUP for potable water supply.

The location of the South Hawthorn RO Wellfield Expansion and the NERWTP Wellfield Phase 1 are illustrated in Figure 5 -1, along with the general vicinities of the SERWTP Wellfield Phase 1 and the NERWTP Wellfield Phase 2. There are on -going test programs that will assist CCWSD in determining the best locations for the SERWTP Wellfield Phase 1 and the NERWTP Wellfield Phase 2. The South Hawthorn RO Wellfield Expansion is currently being constructed and is scheduled to come online in 2008. The Wellfield consist of wells tapping the Hawthorn Zone 1 Aquifer, which tends to be brackish in this area of Collier County. The wellfield is being constructed to serve the new low pressure reverse osmosis (LPRO) treatment trains that are under construction at the South County Regional Water Treatment Plant ( SCRWTP). Table 5 -1 summarizes the wells that are being constructed for the South Hawthorn RO Wellfield Expansion, The NERWTP Wellfield Phase 1 will be made up of wells tapping the Lower Tamiami Aquifer, the Hawthorn Zone 1 Aquifer and the Lower Hawthorn Aquifer. The wells will serve the NERWTP Phase 1, which will treat the water using ion exchange (IE) for fresh water and LPRO for brackish water. The wellfield is scheduled to come online in 2011 to serve the first phase of the NERWTP. Table 5 -2 summarizes the planned wells in the NERWTP Wellfield Phase 1. The SERWTP Wellfield Phase 1 will contain wells tapping the Hawthorn Zone 1 Aquifer and /or Lower Hawthorn Aquifer. Based on existing hydrogeologic data, the water quality in the study area tends to be brackish to saline. The Wellfield will serve the SERWTP, which will utilize either LPRO or high pressure reverse osmosis (HPRO) to treat the water depending on the water quality observed during the current test program, which is scheduled to be complete in 2008. The wellfield is scheduled to come online in 2014.

The CCWSD has plans to expand the reliable capacity of each of these facilities. The NCRWTP will be expanded from its current capacity of 20 MGD to 22 MGD, with the addition of 2 one MGD HPRO treatment skids. The skids will be used to treat water from Wells RO -1N, RO -2N, RO -3N, and RO -4N, which experienced elevated salinity levels shortly after being brought online. The HPRO treatment skids are scheduled to come online in 2010. The SCRWTP will be expanded to a total LPRO capacity of 20 MGD through the installation of 12 MGD of additional LPRO treatment skids, which are scheduled to come online in 2008. A summary of the existing and planned water treatment facilities is provided in Table 5 -5. In addition to identifying the design capacity of each treatment train, the amount raw water required to make the design capacity is also provided. Table 5 -6 identifies the major tasks required to build each of the planned water treatment facilities, along with the funding source that will be utilized and the scheduled dates for studies, property acquisition, design, permitting, and construction. 5.1.1.3 Pumping, Storage, and Transmission The planned transmission facilities consist of transmission pipelines, water storage tanks, aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) systems, and pumping facilities. The transmission facilities utilized by CCWSD are shown in Figure 5 -3. The planned pumping facilities will include high service pumps at each of the new water treatment plants. Additional booster pumping stations and an in -line booster pump stations may be required to meet demands, but are not planned for construction during the planning period out to 2018. Ground storage tanks at the proposed treatment facilities will provide system storage and reserve capacity to help meet peak hourly demands of the system. Additionally, potable water will be stored at various strategic points in the CCWSD distribution system to help meet diurnal peak system and fire flow demands. In addition to the traditional storage and pumping facilities mentioned above, CCWSD plans to expand the existing 1 MGD potable water ASR system at the Manatee Road Pumping Station to a capacity of 5 MGD. A summary of the existing and planned storage facilities is provided in Table 5 -7. Table 5 -8 identifies the major tasks required to build each of the planned pumping and storage improvements, along with the funding source that will be utilized and the scheduled dates for studies, property acquisition, design, permitting, and construction. Potable water is pumped from the plants into the distribution system. The distribution system includes water mains designated as either transmission of distribution mains. The CCWSD pipelines 16 inches in diameter and larger are generally termed transmission mains. These are typically located along arterial and collector roadways and convey water to major demand areas.

Overall, the CCWSD owns and maintains over 800 miles of water transmission and distribution pipelines, up to 42 inches in diameter, with approximately 51,000 individual service connections. With the construction of 43 MGD of additional finished water capacity, CCWSD will be installing a substantial number of transmission mains and major distribution mains over the next 10 years. The existing and planned transmission mains and major distribution mains that will serve CCWSD in 2018 are illustrated in Figure 5 -4. 5.1.2 Reclaimed Water Facilities CCWSD currently operates the largest reclaimed water system in South Florida, which serves 28 customers with contractual commitments of 22.3 MGD. The majority of the existing customer base is golf courses, residential communities, environmental mitigation areas, county parks, and roadway medians. There are more than 140 additional entities within Collier County that have requested connection to the reclaimed water system and are currently on a waiting list. The following subsections describes the measures CCWSD is taking to meet future wastewater demands and supply reclaimed water to its customers. In addition to the improvements described below, CCWSD is undertaking the development of a Reclaimed Water Master Plan starting in 2007 to determine the best methods for maximizing the efficient use of reclaimed water. Recommendations and findings of the Reclaimed Water Master Plan will be incorporated into future editions of the Collier County 10 -Year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan.
