Okaloosa County, FL—Constantine is very excited to announce that we have completed the expansion project at the Arbennie Pritchett Water Reclamation Facility (WRF). This centralized wastewater treatment plant is the largest of Okaloosa County’s three (3) sewer plants—treating wastewater for over 23,000 homes and businesses in the county—and the expansion provides it with the capacity to serve the community for decades and meet the needs of such a fast-growing region.
This project began in July of 2016, ultimately expanding the Arbennie Pritchett WRF to increase the plant permitted capacity from 10 million-gallons-per-day (mgd) to 15 mgd. A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held on September 14th, 2018, as an honorary plaque was dedicated to the Arbennie Pritchett WRF upon completion of this expansion project; Constantine is very proud to have assisted OCWS with their expansion efforts, and we look forward to a bright future with the County.
Besides the increase in permitted capacity, the expansion project included a surplus of improvements, such as: • Upgrades to the activated sludge train • A new 125-foot secondary clarifier • Additional UV disinfection modules • Effluent pumping improvements • Electrical and I&C improvements • GPM Septage Receiving and FOG Station • 40,000-gallon storage tanks • Pump station and hauler management system
