Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) had decided to increase the capacity of this key Water Pumping Station by upsizing the existing pumps and other associated systems. To improve the reliability, DWSD also had decided to install state-of-art Instrumentation and Control System to monitor and control the Pump Station. METCO was engaged as Prime Consultant to provide complete study, design and construction administration including start-up, testing, and training.
The major features of this upgrade include:
Some of the critical challenges of the design process involve installation of pumping equipment and routing of the modified header piping within the strict space constraints. METCO addressed this by comprehensive field verifications and by selection and specifying pumps and piping system that could be installed within the limited space.
