Engineers alleviate water issues related to hurricanes in New Orleans
Stanley Consultants is providing design and construction, engineering and inspection services for the ongoing Water Hammer Hazard Mitigation Project at the Sewerage & Water Board’s Carrollton Water Treatment Plant. The station was 60-years old with 1,500- to 2,250 horsepower pumps that manually started. The station had an unreliable power source and was experiencing surge damages to the distribution system. Scope of work includes the replacement of four 44-million-gallons per day (MGD) pumps at the Claiborne Pump Station and two 45-MGD pumps at Panola Pump Station, for a total of six new 45-MGD variable-speed pumps with 60-cycle motors. In addition, there will be the installation of two new 45-MGD variable-speed pumps with 60-cycle motors at the low lift station within the power plant along with the installation of slow opening and closing valves with battery backup for each.
