Design-Build Pump Station 324 – San Diego, CA
Orion repaired water pump station 324 in Point Loma, CA, while ensuring the neighborhood’s water operations were uninterrupted. This project involved demolition, wet utility, paving, and building construction. Before the new pump station could be constructed, Orion prepared the site by clearing the area, grading it, and building the new pump station’s concrete pad. The old station was demolished and suction and discharge piping was re-routed to serve the newly constructed facility.
A prefabricated metal building was erected to house the pump station equipment including: valves, piping, pumps, motors, generators, and electrical systems. The new structure had four water tight windows, watertight double doors, a passive roof ventilation system, removable roof sections for pump access, and a retaining wall around three sides of the building with a concrete drainage swale on the upper side of the wall.
