Fort Lauderdale’s Prospect Lake water treatment plant wins Best P3 Utility Project of the Year


Florida Construction News staff writer

The City of Fort Lauderdale’s Prospect Lake Clean Water Center has been named Best P3 Utility Project of the Year Award by P3 Bulletin.

Ridgewood Infrastructure and IDE Technologies’ unsolicited proposal to the City of Fort Lauderdale for the development of the Prospect Lake Clean Water Center was selected to complete the $666 million project to build, operate and maintain a state-of-the-art, membrane-based water treatment facility that will replace the aging Fiveash Regional Water Treatment Plant.

A groundbreaking ceremony is being planned for January 2024 and we hope you can join us to celebrate the start of construction.

Currently in the design phase, this is likely the first of many awards to come for this project. Mayor Trantalis recently signed documents to close a $543 million bond to fund the new facility, setting a record for the largest bond ever issued by the City of Fort Lauderdale.

The new plant will be capable of producing 50 million gallons of treated water per day using a combination of nanofiltration membrane and ion exchange technologies to provide clear, safe, potable water. Learn more about the project at
