White Rock Pump Station

Dallas Water Utilities

This project consisted of the condition assessment and pump testing for an existing wastewater treatment plant’s 250 MGD influent pump station. JQ developed a pump testing protocol to field-test pumps at different pressure conditions. Flow rates for conditions were recorded, and pump operating curves were developed. These curves were compared to the curves from initial pump installation tests conducted in 1986. JQ determined degradation in pump efficiencies that had occurred over time and recommended refurbishments for each pump. The firm also was tasked with overall hydraulic analysis of two major wastewater treatment plants to assist in preliminary planning for future process improvements and capacity increases. Additionally, JQ provided feasibility study support for the high strength waste disposal and treatment process at the plants.
