Greeley and Hansen, A TYLin Company, designed the Reuse Water Pump Station for the Flamingo Water Resource Center in Clark County, Nevada.
The new Reuse Water Pump Station (RWPS) at Flamingo Water Resource Center (FWRC) will provide reliable distribution of reuse water to the existing plant process areas and external customers that rely upon reuse water for irrigation and equipment cooling needs.
The previous RWPS provides reuse water for FWRC East and West Campus inside process systems and outside reuse water customers. A previous planning study recommended alternative was a new pump station located on the West Campus and rehabilitation of the existing pump station on the east campus. This project will provide reliable distribution of reuse water to the existing plant process areas and external customers that rely upon reuse water for irrigation and equipment cooling needs. The Chemical feed system was designed to deliver sodium hypochlorite to the reuse water distribution system to maintain required chlorine residual levels to meet the Class B reuse water requirements.
A network analysis of the reuse water distribution system using the software package known as InfoWater was developed to determine future issues that may occur with new facilities at the FWRC. The new pipeline will connect to the existing piping system to maintain the distribution of reuse water for internal and external needs. The site was designed to maintain unimpeded operations during the 100-year storm event and included drainage, setting of floor and equipment elevations, watertight enclosures where required, and other elements for a flood protected design.
- Replaced Reuse Water Pump Station.
- The project provides for reliable distribution of reuse water.
- The project included several elements of flood-protected design.
