Pullen to Bain 36-inch Reinforcing Main

Project impacts 11,700 feet of 36-inch water main transmission between the Pullen Park Pump Station and the E.B. Bain Pump Station. The proposed transmission main will allow the pumps at the Dempsey E. Benton Water Treatment Plant to fill the Chamberlin Tank in the event that water is unable to flow from the E.M. Johnson Water Treatment Plant.

History

The current 2016 Water System Master Plan identified a system vulnerability issue. The location of this issue is at the New Hope and Chamberlain Water Tanks in the 495-pressure zone. These tanks will not operate if the existing 48-inch transmission main from the E.M. Johnson Water Treatment Plant in the 495-pressure zone went offline. The proposed 36-inch water transmission main will allow the 495-pressure zone pumps at the Dempsey E. Benton Water Treatment Plant to fill the Chamberlin Tank in the event water is unable to flow through the 48-inch transmission main from the E.M. Johnson Water Treatment Plant.
