Techniques for performance optimization and energy reduction were reviewed for application to water supply plants. Simple techniques were developed which permit intelligent management decisions for plant operation growth. The techniques were applied to the Wewahootee Water Supply Plant, Cocoa, Florida. Optimum performance for the existing plant was determined together with a growth plan for reducing energy consumption and increasing the maximum flow capacity to meet demand through the year 2000. The following recommendations were made: 1. Plant operators should incorporate the optimized pump operation schedule presented herein. 2. Four existing pumps should be modified for dual speed operation, and a large capacity dual speed pump should be added. 3. One 10,400 foot section should be added to the 42-inch pipe by 1985 and a second section by 1990. 4. An economic analysis should be performed to determine if it is advantageous to accelerate installation of the 42-inch pipe. 5. The use of stored water should be considered to smooth the flow demands placed on the pumps.
