Pump Station #8 contained two horizontal dry pit and two submersible pumps installed in 1988. The GCDC-WWS Operations and Maintenance Department has rebuilt the pumps several times over the years. De-ragging of pumps was part of their standard operating procedures when running their station routes. When it became time once again to rebuild the pumps, GCDC-WWS opted to look at newer options. It was also desirable for the new pumps to match the actual flow and head conditions required.
GCDC-WWS no longer wanted to throw good money at old technology, so they turned to their Xylem distributor and trusted supplier Kennedy Industries for answers and a more permanent solution. Pump Station #8 was the perfect place and time to introduce Xylem’s new Flygt Concertor, a smart wastewater pumping system that senses the operating conditions of its environment, adapts its performance in real time, and provides feedback to pumping station operators.
