MIA - Northside Utilities and Drainage Project

BND provided the engineering design and permitting of approximately six (6) miles of "State of the Art" Utility Corridors including 14,000 feet of 12 -26 inch diameter sewer and force mains and a Primary Stormwater Management System as part of a Development Plan for the Northside Area of the Miami International Airport (NW 72nd Avenue to NW 42nd Avenue).  Programming/Coordination with 6 Architect/Engineers.  The approximately  40 foot wide Utility Corridors comprises of 16 to 24  inch diameter water transmission mains, 12 inch diameter sewer force mains, 36 inch sewer force mains, electrical power and telecommunications ductbanks.  

Comprised of:

The wastewater transmission system also includes seven (7) sewer submersible type Pumping Stations (each approximately 350 GPM), and Sewer RePump No. 1 Station, 1700 GPM @ 100 TDH, sewer flow meters meeting MDWASD Standards and Specifications and Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM)/Environmental Protection  (EPA) sanitary sewer compliance requirements.  The CYBERNET VERSION 3.0/WATERCADD software program is utilized for water and sewer network system modeling.


The Primary Stormwater Management System includes 12 foot by 7 foot and 12 foot by 9 foot Pre-Cast Concrete Box Culverts, 32,000 GPM and  3,500 GPM Stormwater pumping stations with standby generator facilities, water control structures, a 15 acre retention/detention pond and an Oil Water Separator Facility designed to provide water quality pretreatment as stipulated in the SFWMD Permit Conditions for the MIA Northside Area.  The ADVANCED INTERCONNECTED POND ROUTING (ICPR) PROGRAM was utilized for flood routing analysis, master plan verification and system sizing.  The project also includes an 800 foot canal and FEC railroad crossings utilizing specialized technologically advanced Microtunneling and Open Cut construction methods and procedures.  As with any major Capital Improvements Project at MIA, minimizing disruptions to both Landside and Airside Operations is of utmost importance.  Detailed Maintenance of Air Traffic Operations and Safety Plans are being prepared in accordance with FAA Advisory Circular 150/5370-2C.
