City of Stuart IQ Water Main

The City of Stuart recognized that due to dry weather conditions, limited aquifer withdrawal, and reductions in effluent discharge initiatives that they needed to pursue options to utilize Irrigation Quality (IQ) reclaimed water throughout the City and also sell this commodity to the Martin County Utility Department and the South Martin Regional Utility. CAPTEC was selected as the Engineer to design, permit and provide construction administration services to complete this public project consisting of the installation of over 6 miles of 16” IQ Water Main.

CAPTEC prepared a hydraulic analysis and report of the proposed pipeline to size the IQ main and the high service pumps to deliver minimum service pressures at expected demands to benefit Martin County, Martin County Golf Course and Jupiter Island. The analysis reviewed various service routes to gain the most customers of the IQ Main.



• The 16" IQ Mains proposed to provide a build-out flowrate of 2 million gallons per day of IQ water

• Originally the City proposed a 32,000 LF project from the City of Stuart's Wastewater Treatment Plant to a remotely controlled and metered interconnect with Martin County Utilities at the intersection of Indian Street and Willoughby Boulevard.  This project traversed through a highly developed urbanized area in Martin County.

• The Construction of Phase 1 within the City of Stuart serving a school, ballfields, courthouse, and parks is complete.

• The project involved frequent coordination with underground utilities and multiple local and state government entities. The Project was funded with ARRA State Revolving Funds (SRF) and requires significant record keeping of all construction, activities, including Buy American provisions.
