Pump Station and Pump House Project

This project has been talked about for the past few years.  It was a long process but I am glad that we are under way.  We are installing an irrigation pump station, wet well, in-take pipe and pump house.  Our old pump station was original from 1972 and the wet well was collapsing allowing soil to get into our irrigation system clogging our sprinkler heads.  We first drained the lake by filling our ponds on the course.  As the water level dropped, the irrigation pond split in two and we relocated the fish to the south side of the lake.  We used sand bags to keep as much water in the south side to provide ample room for the fish to swim.  As the ice and snow melted from our last big storm (22 inches of snow) we rented a 4 inch trash pump to remove the rest of the remaining water.  We teamed up with American Golf Construction who will be performing all the necessary work.  They dug out 14 feet of sand stone to install the wet well.  They pulverized the sand stone and they are using it as the back fill around the wet well.

  1. It must be a good example of proposal for research paper on irrigation pump stations. You wrote your post very logical. As a rule people know about the system of manufacturing pumps. It's known about the manufacture of pumps a lot of information. But you describe how to pump rainwater and hold it.
