Pumping Station Wet Well Calculations

Calculations normally associated with pumping station wet-well design (such as determining design lift or pumping capacity) are usually left up to design and mechanical engineers. On occasion, however, wastewater operators or interceptor technicians may be called upon to make certain basic calculations. Usually these calculations deal with determining either pump capacity without influent (e.g., checking the pumping rate of the constant-speed pump) or pump capacity with influent (e.g., checking how many gallons per minute the pump is discharging). This section provides examples of how and where these two calculations are made.
