Pump Stations


Members of the MC Engineering, Inc. team have played a primary role in leading the following pump station projects to completion:

City of Stockton, Delta Water Supply Pump Station.  Mr. Carey was the project engineer responsible for designing an 80 mgd raw water intake on the San Joaquin River in Stockton California.  Designed a backup levee and related instrumentation program for monitoring earthwork and placement of fills during construction.  Coordinated with the geotechnical engineer for earthwork specifications, monitoring, and testing.  Coordinated with the State Reclamation Board and local Reclamation District to build consensus on construction phasing.  Performed hydraulic analysis for pumps, designed site, and coordinated related engineering disciplines.

Calaveras County, California, Ebbett’s Pass Water Pumping Stations.  Mr. Carey developed operations and maintenance manual.  The project included two high lift pump stations with 500,000‑gallon storage tanks and 500‑kW and 750‑kW diesel generators for standby power.  Each site is comprised of three vertical turbine pumps which provide 1,600 gpm at an average 390 feet TDH.  Mr. Carey performed inspection services for pump station start‑up and field verification of wiring and control system operation.

Buckeye Water Treatment Plant, City of Redding, California.  Mr. Carey assisted in preliminary design and hydraulic analysis of this 7‑mgd water treatment plant.  He wrote process control and loop descriptions for instrumentation and control system for the treatment plant and related distribution system facilities.  He compiled process and instrumentation diagrams and detailed instrument installation drawings.  Mr. Carey designed sludge handling facilities, including three pump stations and a fire pump system, and wrote technical specifications.  He also assisted in compiling of a comprehensive cost estimate for the project.

Water Commission Southwest Pipeline, North Dakota.  Mr. Carey assisted in development of instrumentation plans and specifications for the 900‑Mhz radio telemetry system.  This project included 15 major pump stations, 17 storage reservoirs, and more than 250 miles of 12‑inch to 26‑inch transmission mains.
