Orange County Groundwater Replenishment System – Collection Pump Station
To create new potable water, this lift station pumps clean stormwater from a collection/storage basin to a treatment facility. Duplex vertical turbine pumps move high flows of water very efficiently and use soft starters to reduce torque on the vertical shaft and provide additional pump diagnostics. Also included is an above-grade valve assembly on the top slab. The control panel utilizes an ultrasonic transducer for primary level controls and a pressure transducer for backup. The entire package lift station is located inside an owner-supplied control building.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Romtec Utilities worked with Stantec (Civil E.) and Pacific Hydrotech (GC) to design and supply a site specific pump station as part of the Orange County Groundwater Replenishment System, or GWRS. The GWRS is the world’s largest advanced water purification system, and it produces about 70 million gallons-per-day of potable water. Romtec Utilities designed the lift station per GWRS standards that were specified by Stantec. This included configurations for the high flow, low head conditions necessary for large volume pumping. Romtec Utilities then worked with Pacific Hydrotech to integrate the pump station with other aspects of the project, including the site plan and control building.
