Jensen Precast ‘Pumps’ It Up

Jensen Water Resources performs startup services on a large pump station installation

The Roman Empire famously tapped the force of gravity to move water from hillsides to city centers across aqueducts. Today we can leverage pump stations to do most of the heavy lifting and move water to wherever we want it to be. Pump stations move stormwater, wastewater, and other media for America’s infrastructure needs. Engineers […]

Designing Pump Stations to be Wipes Ready (WEF eShowcase)

Our division manager recently had the opportunity to present an eShowcase webcast for the Water Environment Federation (WEF). The discussion focused on the effect that nondispersible wipes have on submersible sewage pump stations and what steps designers can take to overcome these challenges. The specific challenges that wipes present for pump stations include: Effects on submersible […]

Pump Stations: Hatch Sizing

So we now know what the minimum volume of the wet well should be to handle all inflowrates. We now need to select our wet well shape and size. This is an iterative process. A good place to start is by sizing the minimum hatch dimensions as this sets the minimum well diameter. First determine the […]
