  • Pump Stations Go Viral
    housed pardon the pun behind the domestic facade In reality the structure functions as an ordinary booster station for potable water albeit a cleverly designed neighborhood friendly one It s a story that seems to be trending and not just on the Internet Pump Housing Market On The Rise Since discovering The House On Wade Avenue which has actually been in existence since the late 70s I ve noticed some even more impressive that is less noticeable pump station houses Who would suspect that the bungalow pictured below is a stormwater pump station Photo courtesy of McKim Creed Inc The Alline Avenue pump station in Tampa FL was built out of necessity particularly to remedy street flooding but it represents the city s first attempt to have infrastructure blend in with residential surroundings The ribbon was cut on the 4 8 million 35 MGD facility in January 2013 and it has since won the Award of Outstanding Contribution to the Community from the Hillsborough Planning Commission it was the nearby Hillsborough Bay that would routinely flood the area Designed by McKim Creed engineers the pump station collection system is facilitated by three submersible 90 HP pumps two operating one standby hidden in the backyard as well as two nutrient removal baffle boxes positioned upstream for total suspended solids TSS reduction Downstream a dissipation box and box culvert are utilized to reduce flow velocity to less than 2 ft second entering the Hillsborough Bay thereby protecting sensitive vegetation and marine life As unsightly as a typical pump station is a glut of metal blocks and pipes the sewage pump station has to be the most unwelcome of neighbors for obvious reasons The Locust Valley Pump Station however has true curbside appeal a far cry from the utilitarian interior Photos courtesy of

  • 5 Steps Every Water Utility Should Take Now To Prepare For Disaster
    to see what they need But without clean water that hospital is not going to be able to maintain normal operations at all The EPA and other organizations are currently working to educate emergency response organizations on the importance of making water utilities a top priority But it is also important that each water utility take initiative prior to a weather emergency to prepare and protect itself Here are five critical steps every water utility should take before disaster strikes 1 Lobby For Emergency Support In every community there are local and state emergency planning committees Water utilities should not only have up to date contact information for these organizations but they should contact them now and begin to establish a relationship said Travers Contact information for emergency response teams can be found on the FEMA s Community Emergency Response Team CERT website At the local level water utilities need to set up clear lines of communication with city police and fire departments Utilities need to communicate in detail what they may need during an emergency A water emergency document released by the EPA recommends that utilities notify law enforcement and local emergency response teams that water staff may have to remain onsite and could be trapped at the plant during an emergency and should be checked in on Contacts should also be established locally to request emergency water supply if necessary Water sector employees should also communicate with emergency response teams about what kind of assistance they can provide to the response teams and the community as a whole during an emergency At the state level multiple water utilities may need to work together for change recommended Travers We would want the utilities to let these emergency response organizations know that the water sector needs to be a priority he said Utilities really need to lobby for representation in discussions about how statewide emergencies should be handled to include their needs 2 Evaluate Infrastructure Equipment And Supplies Now is the time to make sure everything inside and outside the plant can survive a major weather emergency Pump and lift stations in particular can be impacted by a weather event Emergency power systems should be in place at all critical stations explained Travers Flooding can threaten a pump or lift station If a pump station or lift station is in an anticipated flooding area there are ways to harden that facility by elevating it or ensuring the pumps can operate underwater said Travers Make sure electrical components of that station are safeguarded We ve had utilities that have constructed walls around their system to keep water out Regularly test backup lights generators backup chemical feeders and all pumps and motors It is also important to verify that spare pumps motors and other necessary spare parts are available Emergency electrical generators can be a big help but they should not be stored in flood prone areas of the facility Dry chemicals should always be stored off the floor in a dry
