Anderson Pump Station
San Antonio, Texas
Client: San Antonio Water System
This project was for upgrades and improvements at the Anderson Pump Station. This pump station is one of the largest in SAWS’ water distribution system and supplies most of the demand required to serve customers in the northwest pressure zones. This design includes the replacement of the existing high service pumps with higher head and larger capacity units. Project elements included: pump sizing and phasing, infrastructure recommendations, steady state hydraulic modeling, long range water supply integration sustainability, total replacement of all motor control centers, and a new 7.5 MG ground storage reservoir. Maestas & Associates was contracted to perform the site grading around the new ground reservoir tank, electrical building and chlorination building. Maestas & Associates also widened the existing roadway to the electrical and chlorination buildings, delineated the drainage areas for the site, calculated storm water flows for the site and designed the site drainage facilities to ensure storm water flows could be conveyed across the site without flooding any of the existing or proposed facilities.
