City of Hesperia – Reclaimed Water Irrigation Booster Pump Station

Project Assets

Project Description

Romtec Utilities designed and supplied a booster pump station and a control building for a reclaimed water irrigation system in California. The booster system conveys high flows of water from a water reclamation facility and distributes it to several parks before emptying into a pond. Romtec Utilities designed the booster pump station with American Marsh 40hp turbine pumps in a duplex configuration with a third Ebara 3hp turbine jockey pump to meet the high flow and high head requirements of this application. Varying flow requirements required that the pumps be operated using a variable frequency drive (VFD). Pressure transmitters on both the inlet and discharge provide the system controls with real time information about the pumping conditions. The system also includes two air vacuum valves to allow air to be vented from the line and maintain steady pressure. These valves will also fill the pipeline with air if a drastic change in pressure occurs to prevent the pipeline from collapsing.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities

Romtec Utilities provided the design and supply of a package booster pump station and control building for the City of Hesperia in California. This booster pump station is part of a large water reclamation facility in an arid region of California. The system is used to distribute recycled water to several parks for irrigation and empties into a pond of a golf course. Romtec Utilities worked with Merrell Johnson Company, the civil engineer working for the city to complete the design of the pump station and control building. The system was then reviewed and approved the City of Hesperia’s Public Works department and launched into production. Romtec Utilities prefabricated much of the booster pump station prior to shipping it to job site to simplify construction on-site. RIC Construction purchased the building and pump station packages directly and installed them. Romtec Utilities provided an on-site construction adviser to answer any questions regarding the system and ensure construction was performed according to as-built drawings.
