This project would replace the existing BAWA Forebay liner, raw water pumps and motors with variable frequency drive (VFD) pumps/motors at the Fritz Lanham Surface Water Plant.
The existing forebay liner is HDPE and has several tears and holes, which cause water loss of metered and paid raw water. The existing raw water pumps and motors are deteriorated and are at the end of useful life. Multiple pumps raw water pumps have been rebuilt over the years, and contain no original equipment manufacturer parts. The addition of VFD pumps will allow staff to better control raw water production over the year, especially at peak flow requirement times.
