BACKGROUND

The Orange County Sanitation District (Sanitation District) Plant No. 1 Primary Effluent Pump Station (PEPS) lifts primary effluent from the East Side Primary Sedimentation Basins to the activated sludge facility, AS-1, at Plant No. 1. Additional flows that enter the PEPS wet well are from Central Generation cooling water, plant water strainers, and Dissolved Air Flotation Thickener systems. The PEPS wet well contains three vertical pumps and one submersible pump. Each of the vertical pumps have a nominal pumping capacity of approximately 45 MGD. The PEPS pumps were originally installed over 40 years ago by Project P1-16.

* 24/7/365 treatment plant reliability
* Maintain a proactive asset management program
* Comply with environmental permit requirements

PROPOSED SOLUTION

Rebuild PEPS Pump No. 2 through Cortech Engineering (Cortech) who is the sole authorized service repair company for Patterson pumps. Cortech will deliver, install, and assist in pump commissioning and start-up.
