Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority
Design of Water Pumping Station
This project was associated with the design of the 67,000 foot long Central Dutchess Water Transmission Line (CDWTL). The 5,000 square foot booster pumping station was installed in an abandoned railroad ROW adjacent to the CDWTL. The structure consisted of a cast-in-place concrete foundation, steel framing and a concrete masonry unit and glass block facade.
The pumping station had an initial capacity of 6 mgd and was expanded to 14 mgd through the addition and change out of pumps, generators and associated equipment. The pumping station includes a backup power generation facility and a chloramine disinfection system. The CDWTL will initially convey water from the Town of Poughkeepsie to IBM Corp’s East Fishkill facility and may eventually serve the Towns of LaGrange, Wappinger and East Fishkill.
