Utility Expansion to Support First Coast Expressway

Utility Expansion to Support First Coast Expressway

Clay County will soon be home to an advanced water treatment facility that, when complete, will treat up to 3 million gallons of water per day for the center of the county and help meet the needs of future expected growth from the First Coast Expressway. Located off Sandridge Road near Ronnie Van Zant Park, and aptly called the Mid-Clay Wastewater Treatment Facility, Clay County Utility Authority officials said the first phase of the $18.5 million project is about 40 percent complete. When phase one goes online, or in CCUA terms, is commissioned, the facility will treat 600,000 gallons of water per day. Phase one of the facility can handle another 2,900 homes, which would bring the total gallons of water treated per day to 1.5 million.
