Completed in 2002, the Tampa Bay Water Surface Treatment Plant uses a state-of-the-art water treatment process to supply the area with some of the purest water in the country. The project earned several industry awards, including the Build America Award from the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America.

The Tampa Bay Water Surface Treatment Plant uses chemical coagulation, maturization, and sedimentation, primary and advanced treatment by ozone, filtering with granular activated carbon biological filtration, and secondary disinfection by chloramination. Clark constructed the plant's operations building, two deep foundation buildings over process tanks and equipment (high rate clarifier, the ozone contactor), a filter process building housing tanks and filter media, a support process building (chemical storage, chemical pump building, dry chemical building, a belt filter press/maintenance building), two large support tank structures (sludge thickeners), and a large recycle surge basin. Site development included numerous drainage ponds, solids storage and drying areas, and a one-half-mile-long access road.
