North City Denny Clouse Pump Station

About

The North City/Denny Clouse Pump Station is the largest and most complex facility within the North City Water District. The station provides water to three distinct pressure zones and includes numerous components to improve water quality, system reliability, and redundancy. District staff are capable of monitoring and controlling the entire District water system from this one facility with a layout that provides direct access to all equipment. The station bundles what would normally be eight different facilities and structures into one structure at a single facility, providing a very cost-effective means of meeting the District’s functional needs.

Features:

  • Pump serves three pressure zones while meeting 16 function objectives
  • Bundled functionality of 8 facilities into one, energy efficient facility
  • Low impact development
