Projects:  Pump Stations - New Facilities

Pump stations projects are expertise of Perliter & Ingalsbe. Since the inception of the firm in 1946, numerous pump stations with variety of components and varying complexity have been completed by us for many cities and water districts. These include new as well as rehabilitation of existing pump station facilities.

The sizes of pump stations designed and successfully constructed by our firm range from 150 gpm pumps with 10 HP motors to as large as 42,000 gpm pumps with 2300 HP motors. Our project team has been involved in pump stations with low and medium voltage, fixed and variable speed, vertical turbine and horizontal centrifugal type pumps, diesel operated pumps and variety of standard and special features.

Typically, pump station projects include the
following major components:

  • Pumps and motors
  • Piping and valves
  • Electrical power supply - medium and/or low voltage
  • Electrical power distribution
  • Pump controls
  • Instrumentation
  • Surge controls
  • Enclosure building
  • Site development and improvement
  • Site security system
