California American Water
Valentine first performed hydraulic analysis and WaterCAD modeling to determine the design criteria for this 9 MGD booster pump station serving the Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) wells in the Central Coast Region. Multiple modes of operation and buildout flows were taken into consideration. As part of these initial investigations, Valentine performed siting investigations and developed booster pump station layouts based on two possible locations. The design includes three (3) 2,100 gpm pumps with VFDs with space to accommodate a fourth pump. The above grade pump station is designed with an optimized footprint to fit on the existing site and avoid native plant impacts. The selected site is located in the City of Seaside and as such, strict noise ordinance requirements were met with pump station building materials.
