Dawson Street Pump Station


Design, bidding and construction phase services for a 1.5 MGD potable water pump station at the Dawson Street elevated tank site.  The pump station provides a unique approach to recapturing the elevated storage from the Dawson Street elevated tank in downtown Wilmington.  


The tank had become hydraulically locked out during normal system operation due to evolving City service area growth.  The pump station eliminated the need to construct a new 1.5 MG tank in a different location, thereby deferring significant project costs and extending the useful life of the tank.
