Case Study: Motors Replaced at Potable Water Plant (Source: Consulting-Specifying Engineer)
By Jeff Thomas
Lockwood Andrews & Newnam Inc. (LAN) recently completed a design project for a large municipal water authority in Texas. The project involved moving treated drinking water from a large ground storage tank to its water distribution system. This facility accepted finished water from the water district and pumped it out to the city’s distribution piping that serves the customer base. In a typical installation, water is provided at various points in the system and used by many customers throughout the city and surrounding areas. The distribution is very much like the electrical grid.
