The new neponset pumping station cost $15 million to construct and was completed in 2013. The new station uses a submersible pump configuration and is located next to the existing station, which was 40 years old. The old pumping station had a firm capacity of 35 million gallons per day. The new station has a capacity of 60 million gallons per day, but there are plans to expand it to 90 million gallons per day in the future.
ESI completed the design
The new pumping station is the second of its kind in Canton. The old station at 620 Washington Street was destroyed in a fire in 1916. The new pumping station has a unique design that combines traditional and modern features. The design combines a traditional water turbine with a new type of electric engine. Besides generating power, the pumping station also generates acetylene gas for lighting.
ESI selected the best pumps
ESI performed preliminary engineering, design, and permitting services for the new pump station. The company also provided hydraulic analysis for two different pumping systems. ESI analyzed the existing infrastructure and recommended modifications to ensure the facility operated efficiently. This project benefited both the community and the environment.
ESI worked with Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources
ESI worked with the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources to design a new pumping station to serve the community. The new facility will increase the capacity of the wastewater treatment process and improve the overall efficiency of the existing pump station. The pump station was designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. The project included new equipment and new piping to support the operation of the pump station.
ESI provided planning, preliminary engineering, and design services for the new pumping station. Additionally, ESI performed hydraulic analyses of two pumping systems. The company also provided the necessary permits for the new pumping station.
The plan was developed based on historic wastewater flows and population estimates. This planning process allowed ESI to anticipate future infrastructure needs and funding requirements. The plan also provides a guide to wastewater management and construction.
