Satchell Engineering & Associates are proud to be life support design team for the new Clearwater Marine Aquarium Expansion project that includes a Dolphin exhibit with five interconnected pools: four main pools in addition to one med pool. Dolphin pool 1, 2, 4, and 5 will feature both above and underwater viewing, while Dolphin pool 3 will feature above water viewing only. The total volume of the five pools is approximately 1.7 million gallons. The new complex triples the amount of dolphin habitat than the old one.
The exhibit water will be recirculated and treated by a specialized life support system (LSS) to maintain water quality appropriate for animal health and viewing. The main observation window is 40 feet ling and 14 feet high to allow the guest a great look at the dolphin enjoy their habitat.
The aquarium is, first and foremost, a center for animal rescue, rehabilitation, and release. All its animals on public display are rescues that could not survive on their own in the wild.
