Union Pacific Railroad – Replacement Water Collection System
The Union Pacific Depot in Cheyenne, Wyoming needed two new stormwater pump stations to replace existing systems. The first station used Ebara 25 hp submersible pumps in a triplex configuration to handle stormwater runoff from a parking lot and additional drains. The second station used Ebara 7.5 hp submersible pumps in a duplex configuration to pump stormwater that drains from the pit of a railway turntable. Both systems include precast concrete valve vaults. Each vault was preassembled with Val-Matic Cam-Centric® plug valves, Val-Matic Swing-Flex® check valves, and Ashcroft pressure gauges. Both stormwater systems discharge into an evaporation pond that was installed as a part of this larger water collection replacement, which also included three additional Romtec Utilities wastewater lift stations.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
When CH2MHILL wanted to develop its lift station designs for the Union Pacific Railroad as site-specific packages, they came to Romtec Utilities with five total lift station projects. Each lift station was incorporated into the larger project of replacing the total sewer and stormwater collection system at this Union Pacific facility. Romtec Utilities worked with the CH2MHILL plans for the site work, utilities, power, and the complete design criteria relative to each lift station. The goal of CH2MHILL was to have the total plans figured out in advance and to have each lift station operate the same for Union Pacific. Romtec Utilities met these goals and sold four new and one retrofit lift station packages to the installing contractor, Wyoming Efficiency Contractors, Inc. Romtec Utilities was the lift station of choice because five lift station packages were developed in conjunction with the goals and plans of CH2MHILL and its customer Union Pacific Railroad.
