Pumping Station CSI – Case Studies
These case studies show the results of what happens when modifications to a pumping station are conducted without an engineering investigation, and what can be avoided when one is performed. There are many competing interests for a municipality’s resources and careful decisions have to be made when deciding what needs are to be met. The purpose of the presentation of these case studies is not to have municipalities perform an engineering study on each pumping station upgrade. Instead it is to make them aware that an informed decision should be made, and this requires facts, not assumptions. All the information must be evaluated, and the reasons why certain operating conditions are followed must be understood.
