Pumping Station Consulting
Pennoni is providing assistance to the City of Dover Department of Public Utilities with troubleshooting operations of a recently installed 600 gpm sewage pumping station. The station was upgraded from a dry/wet well configuration to a wet well mounted vacuum primed pumping skid. The City retained Pennoni to perform a review of the installed field conditions, construction drawings, hydraulic calculations, shop drawings, and miscellaneous correspondence as prepared by the previous consulting engineer. Pennoni has determined that the station is operating outside of the design hydraulic suction lift parameters and Pennoni is working with the City to remedy the issues to return the station to normal operations.
