The Line at Santa Ana – Stormwater Pump Stations for Mixed-Use Development
Romtec Utilities designed and supplied two stormwater pump stations for a mixed-use development in Santa Ana, California. Drainage around the property collects stormwater and directs it through modular wetland systems emptying into underground storage before being discharged by these pump stations. Romtec Utilities selected Ebara 7.5hp pumps with 2hp jockey pumps to meet target flows for the 25-year storm event. The pump station on the west side of the development required an H-20 traffic rated top hatch to support the weight of cars and traffic above it on roadway. Controls for both systems use a programmable logic controller designed for this non-alternating duplex pumping configuration.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
The Line at Santa Ana is a new mixed-use infill development that will add 228 new apartments and 4,000 square feet of commercial space across several buildings. Romtec Utilities was hired to provide two engineered pumping systems that would discharge treated stormwater into the storm sewer. Fuscoe Engineering was the site-engineer working for The Line and completed the site design. Working with Fuscoe, Romtec Utilities designed the two pump stations according to the site requirements and the City of Santa Ana Public Works Department reviewed and approved the plans. The system was manufactured by Romtec Utilities and shipped to Santa Ana and was then installed by The Mark Company. Both pump stations were commissioned by a Romtec Utilities field technician who provided testing and training services for onsite personnel who would be responsible for operation and maintenance.
