New Edition of “Pumping Station Design” Reflects Recent Advances

Jan. 3, 2006

The new 2005 edition of “Pumping Station Design,” the world-standard engineering reference, includes data and design guidelines to help professional engineers build efficient, low maintenance water and wastewater pumping stations, and bring them in on time and on budget.

Pumping Station Design, Third Edition, is the only single-volume reference that deals comprehensively with the entire subject of how to design water and wastewater pumping stations. This new edition provides information needed to:

Design the finest pumping stations of any size on any terrain for surface water, groundwater, drinking water or wastewater;

Ensure lower overall costs of construction, maintenance and repair;

Bring in the project on time, on budget and operating exactly as intended; and

Avoid common design mistakes.

Updates reflect many recent advances in pumping system equipment, design and application. All chapters have been reviewed and revised. More references are made to Hydraulic Institute Standards, and the new edition is fully compatible with the standards. Chapter 12 has been entirely rewritten to reflect current hydraulic Institute intake design requirements. New design information and calculations are given on trench-type wet wells. The latest information on the use of computer-aided pump selection, along with a step-by-step approach for selecting the best pump for the application, is provided.
