Pump Station Project Wins Third Place ASCE Outstanding Civil Engineering Award

May 9, 2013

Prein&Newhof’s Spring Lake Township Wastewater Collection System Pump Station Improvements project has been awarded third place for Outstanding Civil Engineering Award with the ASCE.

This award will be acknowledged at the Michigan Engineering Conference, held by the ASCE and ACEC on May 9 & 10, in Lansing, Michigan.

Spring Lake Township is located in Western Michigan, near the mouth of the Grand River. In this area, the river contains a number of tributaries and bayous adjacent to Spring Lake. The lay of the land dictates the need for a large number of wastewater pumping stations. Spring Lake Township built its original wastewater collection system in the early 1980s. It featured both dry pit  and submersible pumping stations. After nearly thirty years of service, the wastewater collection system needed upgrades to ensure its continued reliability and improve its energy efficiency. Many of them had been limping along on a single pump, and with spare parts becoming more difficult to find, it was time to act. Spring Lake Township decided to upgrade 26 wastewater pumping stations. The Township’s goal was to upgrade the pump stations to provide an efficient, low maintenance, and reliable system that would provide service to the community for many years.
After several years of planning, preliminary design, and searching for funding the Township began construction in the fall of 2011 and concluded a year later. They rebuilt 26 pump stations and a failing section of sanitary sewer.
