Sacramento Municipal Utility District – High Flow Stormwater Pumping
The new headquarters for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District needed this package pump station to handle high flows of stormwater. To handle the specified flow rate, large 60 HP Ebara submersible pumps were engineered in a triplex configuration. This configuration provides ample capabilities for the high flow, medium head conditions, but it also allows for pumping at the maximum allowable flow rate of the downstream system. This was done to ensure that flooding from stormwater would never be a problem at this facility.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
This packaged stormwater pump station was the second of two systems needed at the Sacramento Municipal Utility District. The site of this new facility is essentially in a giant depression, creating flooding concerns with regards to stormwater. RSC Engineering (Civil E.), Sacramento County, and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District worked with Romtec Utilities to design a pump station that would not fail and could empty an onsite detention pond faster than rain could fill it. Using Romtec Utilities to design both of the pump stations at this new facility allowed the Sacramento Municipal Utility District to maintain its standards for design while meeting the total stormwater needs of this unique and critical location.
