Prince George Pump Station

Project Summary

Timmons Group provided design and construction administration services for the Poor Creek Wastewater Pump Station Upgrade.  This project included an upgrade to an existing 40 year old wet well/dry well pump station to increase the capacity to 12 MGD.  The upgrade included four new 40 horsepower pumps on VFD drives, dual channel grinders rated for 12 MGD each, wet well modifications to add a ramp inlet, lighting upgrades and replacement of all valves and mechanical equipment.  The project also included the construction of an 87’ diameter, 34’ tall, 1.4 million gallon equalization basin onsite to retain flows during peak flow events.   Timmons Group assessed the various components of the building and recommended improvements such as cleaning and lining the existing wetwell and headworks with Raven Coating.  Timmons Group also assisted with the coordination of the bypass pumping system, which was used during the pump station upgrade.
