Calder Road Water Plant Improvements

League City, Texas

Binkley & Barfield prepared the design for this pump station project for the City of League City on an accelerated schedule of 4 months so it could be bid in the first quarter of 2013.

The engineering team prepared the design of the pump station system and maintained a highly active public information campaign with the City to help calm concerns of area neighborhoods of the visual and noise impacts of the project. The project design included the following: two 3.25 MG, prestressed concrete ground storage tanks; a booster pump building; four proposed 150 HP split case centrifugal pumps and space for two future 300 HP split case centrifugal pumps within the booster pump building; a new SCADA system for the facility; a diesel generator; chemical feed systems that included the means to off-load, store, pump, and monitor chlorine, ammonia, and polyphosphate; new inlet lines sized for ultimate flow; among other improvements, including demolition of existing storage and fuel tanks.

Construction of the new facility was phased so the existing plant could maintain operations throughout construction. To facilitate communications with the neighborhood, Binkley & Barfield developed 3D visuals that could be viewed by citizens and discussed at City and neighborhood meetings and events. Binkley & Barfield was also heavily engaged throughout the construction to support the contractor in achieving the completion on schedule.
