Union Pacific Railroad – Stormwater Package Pump Station
Stormwater Lift Station Project Description
The Union Pacific Railroad Company needed a packaged stormwater lift station to service the Alton and Southern Railway Gateway Yard drainage improvements project in East St. Louis, Illinois.
The Railway Gateway Yard was improving its entrance road pavement and associated drainage, so they needed to pump stormwater into the existing drainage ditch system.
This project was initially recognized as a rehabilitation project but Romtec Utilities and David Evans and Associates, Inc. determined that they needed a replacement lift station to meet their increased stormwater demands.
The pump station is needed to empty a low area under a bridge at the railyard in which stormwater collects and currently floods because the existing system doesn’t keep up with demand.
The Alton & Southern Railway Yard is a historic short line terminal built in 1910 that is vital to regional rail traffic.
David Evans and Associates, Inc. out of Santa Clarita, CA was the civil engineer on this project who brought Romtec Utilities the opportunity from previous work we completed together. Romtec Utilities worked with David Evans & Associates on the overall design, scope, and budget of the system.
R.W. Dunteman Company was the general contractor who installed the stormwater pump station for Union Pacific Railroad Company.
