Pump Station Evaluation and Rehab Design for BCWS
Weston & Sampson was selected through a competitive process to provide engineering services for the PS001 Pump Station, which is a critical asset to the Berkeley County Water & Sanitation (BCWS) – it is the largest pump station in the BCWS wastewater system, delivering over half of the influent flow to the Lower Berkeley Wastewater Treatment Plant (LBWWTP). The station has been in operation for 18 years (1994) and in recent years, pump failures have been occurring, resulting in expensive pump rebuilds. The station has also experienced damage and negative impacts caused by hydrogen sulfide related corrosion.
Weston & Sampson was selected for the Modernization Study of PS001 to identify problems and provide clear resolution and direction for PS001 renovations. Weston & Sampson provided overall technical expertise, oversight, project management, and coordination for the entire study of this 28 MGD pump station.
The project scope included hydraulic modeling, physical modeling, odor and corrosion control services, and an electrical evaluation. A detailed Technical Memorandum was developed for each of the key pump station components and provided a comprehensive report with detailed recommendations for a systematic implementation plan.
Weston & Sampson was also chosen for the design of the improvements.
