Encino Reservoir Booster Pump Station Surge Analysis

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power

Los Angeles, CA

Flow Science analyzed the effect of operations of the proposed & existing Encino Reservoir Booster Pump Stations and the proposed Membrane Filtration Plant on the 1075 & 1240 pressure zones. The system comprised up to six pumps at 4,500 gpm at the pump station. As part of the project, Flow Science specified valve protection, placement of valves, & pump startup operations. This project was performed in three phases and included field testing of the existing booster pump station.
