International-Matex Tank Terminals – Oily Stormwater Runoff Pumping
An IMTT industrial storage facility needed this stormwater pump station to collect runoff and pump it to treatment onsite. The duplex submersible pumps were engineered to handle the expected medium flows of stormwater. The pumps also needed to handle water that could potentially carry oil or other industrial chemicals stored on the site. An above-grade valve assembly used ball valves and check valves that were vertically integrated for easy access. The pump station electrical controls were located on an existing wall in the water treatment area.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
A California pump supplier contacted Romtec Utilities to provide complete pump station designs on a project where its pumps were specified. Romtec Utilities is able to design pump stations with any pump brand and provided the supplier with preliminary designs. IMTT and its contractor, Sonnikson & Stordahl Construction Inc., approved of the preliminary designs and worked with Romtec Utilities to create complete design and engineering plans. The final designs included several degrees of redundancy to ensure stormwater from the site would not enter the San Francisco Bay fewer than 50 feet from the pump station. IMTT and Sonnikson & Stordahl were satisfied with the designs and approved the complete Romtec Utilities package.
