San Sebastián Raw Water Intake and Pump Station Improvements


The project involved crafting construction documents for enhancements to the San Sebastián Raw Water Intake and Pump Station. The existing structures comprising the San Sebastián raw water intake and pump station include a concrete dam, a raw water intake equipped with pumps, a raw water pump station, and a force main. The project design included the preparation of construction documents for the following tasks:

(1) Replacement of the three existing pumps with new variable frequency pumps with a capacity of approximately 2,300 gallons per minute, for a total capacity of 4,200 gallons per minute.

(2) Selective demolition of the pumps and associated equipment currently installed in the raw water intake.

(3) Replacement of the motor control center, pumps and diesel storage, (4) Improvements to the facilities mechanical and electrical system, including instrumentation and controls.

(5) Structural improvements to the pump station building.
