OLD AND NEW PUMPING STATION DESIGN FEATURES INTEGRATED FOR AN EFFICIENT PUMPING SYSTEM
Abstract:Combined sewer overflow (CSO) discharges at Berkshire Street (CSO #9) represented the largest single discharge by volume of untreated CSO into the Connecticut River within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and contributed greater than 55 percent of the untreated discharges from the City of Holyoke.
The USEPA issued an Administrative Order to the City of Holyoke to begin the construction of the Berkshire Street CSO facility and related improvements at the Holyoke WWTP, and necessary in-line storage to enable the City to provide screening and disinfection to CSO's. Metcalf & Eddy was selected to be the design-builder for the CSO Treatment Facility and wastewater plant improvements.
The Berkshire Street CSO Treatment Facility provides screening and disinfection of 103 mgd of CSO discharges. To accomplish this, a new pumping station was needed to lift the CSO to the new screening and disinfection facility.
