I-205 Corridor Storm Drainage Pump Stations

BEI provided planning, design, and construction assistance for a 20 cfs pump station and 11,500 feet of 18-inch discharge pipeline. Planning included an economic evaluation of pipe size versus pumping head to select the most economical pump and pipeline combination. The pump station includes three 77 HP pumps, wet well, intake structure, trash rack, and discharge valve vault. Control is provided by a reactive air system with float switches for backup. Operation is remotely monitored and controlled from the City of Tracy water treatment plant using a microwave radio system.
