Booster Pump Station and Reservoir
I served as a project engineer on the design team responsible for the supply and storage of potable water to the 400-unit Runkle Canyon Home Development. In order to meet the demands of the Simi Valley tract, a new 500-GPM booster pump station and 2.0-MG welded steel reservoir were designed, and the existing Pineview pump station upgraded. The designed pump station included one operating pump and one standby pump as well as a pressure-reducing station with pressure relief valves - all housed in a concrete masonry block building. Premium efficient motors for the pumping system were selected and specified to meet existing energy efficiency standards.
Interior and coating specifications were also prepared for the proposed building. The reservoir was sized and designed to provide emergency, fire, and equalizing storage and meet AWWA D-100 standards. The scope of services for both the pump station and reservoir included site grading, a drainage system with catch basins, access road paving, piping, electrical equipment, controls and SCADA system, and project management. Plan review submittals were processed and approvals coordinated with all agencies involved.
