VWCA Irrigation, Treatment & Pump Stations

Design of multiple (10 constructed to date) irrigation and fire protection pump stations utilizing stormwater and low quality groundwater as sources. Backup well pumps are constant speed pumping 3,000 gpm, discharging into lined surface water reservoirs. Well pumps are utilized when sufficient stormwater runoff is not available to meet the irrigation and fire protection needs of the community. High service pumps withdraw the water from the lined reservoir, and three, VFD controlled 2,000 gpm high service pumps and one, VFD controlled 500 gpm jockey pump pressurize the distribution system. Influent water from the reservoir is screened by self-cleaning lake screens. Water is then pumped through wedgewire, scanning screen, self-backwashing filters prior to entering the distribution system. Manual chlorination systems are utilized to treat the water prior to discharge into the distribution system. Stations also include a standby generator and automatic transfer switch to ensure that the system remains pressurized in the event of a power outage.

Construction Cost: $2,500,000.00
(estimated, each, over $25M total)

Completion Date: Last station completed 2010
