Project Update: City of Spring Hill Main Street Booster Pump Station

Great progress shots on the ground in Spring Hill! B. H. Craig Construction is making significant headway on the T&H-designed Highway 31 Water Booster Station. The City of Spring Hill is constructing the new booster station to facilitate long-term water purchase from the adjacent utility district, Columbia Power and Water System (CPWS). The increased long-term water purchase ( from 0.8 MGD to 3.0 MGD) will allow the City of Spring Hill to delay the capital cost of expanding its Water Treatment Plant for approximately 5-10 years.

The water booster station will contain three 75-horsepower horizontal split case pumps, each operated by a variable frequency drive. Each pump will have an operating capacity of 1,200 gallons per minute. Two pumps will operate simultaneously, with one as a redundant backup, providing an operating capacity of approximately 3.00 MGD.

The Booster Station will feature a monorail beam over the centerline of the pumps to allow future removal and maintenance of the pumps. A magnetic flow meter will be located in the discharge piping to record instantaneous flow rates to be used for billing from CPWS. The station will include Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) equipment to connect to Spring Hill’s SCADA system network to provide information on system efficiency and energy usage.
