City of Lubbock Southwest Pump Station

CLIENT: City of Lubbock

The City of Lubbock was outgrowing its water distribution system. Water sources included surface water from Lake Meredith and groundwater from a regional wellfield. The annual average daily water demand was over 38 MGD with a peak daily demand of about 73 MGD. The City contracted with eHT and LAN to analyze, design and manage the construction of a new pressure plane to serve the growing southwest part of town and add a new 14 MGD pump station to serve the existing west pressure zone. The City’s steady state hydraulic model was transformed into an extended period simulation and updated to include future growth. The new model was then used to analyze the existing system, determine fill and draw capabilities using the existing system components and recommend a site for the combined pump station.
