Laguna Canyon Group – Stormwater Pump Station with On-Site Water Treatment
Romtec Utilities designed and supplied a stormwater pump station for a new retail outlet in San Clemente, California. This pump station is used to distribute low flows of stormwater collected from a different system and discharge it through a planter for on-site water treatment. Ebara 1/3hp pumps were installed in a duplex configuration to meet the applications flow requirements. The low flow requirements of the biofiltration system required some water to be diverted back into the wet well using bypass piping to cool the pumps while in operation. Electrical controls were also supplied for this pump station with a simple and configured using an reliable alternator relay suitable for this duplex pumping configuration. Controls were installed in a secure and weather resistant NEMA 4X fiberglass enclosure complete with an anti-condensation heater for year-round protection.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
The development of multiple retail outlets in San Clemente, California required the installation of a stormwater pump station. The system needed to work with the specifications of another pumping system by discharging collected stormwater through an on-site biofiltration treatment system. Romtec Utilities was contacted to design and supply a pump station that would fit this application by the site civil engineers, Blue Peak Engineering. These engineers working under the developer, Laguna Canyon Group, provided us the information used to design the pump station. Once the system design was approved and the project was sent to bid, Patriot Pipeline won the project and purchased the pump station directly and completed the installation. A construction advisor representing Romtec was available onsite to answer any questions regarding the installation of the system. The system was later commissioned by a Romtec Utilities field technician who provided testing and training services to operating personnel.
