The design objectives for this project were to utilize hydraulic modeling to confirm design assumptions and optimize operational characteristics for a 180 million gallon per day (mgd) (681,300 cubic meter per day) state-of-the-art pump station operating in a high volume rock laden raw sewage environment. Operational objectives were to incorporate the operation of the full-scale pump station with the existing unit processes at the 23rd Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant (see Figure 1). Research indicates that the Influent Pump Station is one of the largest trench style self-cleaning wet well wastewater facilities and utilizes the largest vertical column solids handling raw sewage pumps manufactured for this application as of the date of construction.
