Three packaged pumping stations were required to remove water from a system of rainwater attenuation crates. High flow rates (77, 51 and 31 l/s) would be required. Following advice from Edincare on chamber dimensions and access cover size, concrete chambers would be constructed by the client using pre-cast concrete rings.
• The Edincare design team specified the pumping stations based on site drawings. Vortex pumps up to DN150 size where specified to achive the required flow rates. Ductile iron pipework was used for its strength and durability.
• Installing pumping stations downstream of attenuation crates is cheaper than having large holding tanks with internal pumps.
