Upper Des Plaines Pumping Station

Upper Des Plaines Pumping Station

Owner  - MWRDGC
Client      -   MWH
Location   - River Forest, Illinois

The project was a complete study and rehabilitation of a major pump station serving the Upper Des Plaines River service area, and installation and control of a bypass to the TARP System to accommodate emergency events. IDCS was responsible for all Electrical and Instrumentation studies, as well as design and construction services on this major project. Work included power system analysis, medium voltage service from two sources with automatic transfer and stand-by generation, medium and low voltage motor control, flow measurement, control and telemetry systems, and building electrical in both classified and unclassified areas. The pump station is unmanned. Controls and monitoring are via telemetry from the Stickney Wastewater Reclamation Plant via radios. The most critical challenge was accommodating the electrical equipment in the existing cottage-like forest preserve sited structure.
