Coral Springs, FL - Sunshine Water Control District (SWCD) in Coral Springs, Florida, reached a milestone in the construction of its two new pump stations, in late January 2012, with the installation of four pumps at Pump Station 1. The two new pump stations will replace existing 45-year old facilities that are a critical part of the stormwater management system, serving approximately 16,000 landowners and 5,000 acres of residential and commercial lands in Coral Springs, Florida.

Pump Station 1 is located on Royal Palm Boulevard, east of Riverside Drive. Pumpstation 2 is located behind Taravella High School, south of Riverside Drive and east of Coral Springs Drive. The new pump stations will provide state-of-the-art, dependable stormwater management capabilities with a total capacity of 151,300 gallons per minute and 210,000 gallons per minute, respectively.

The pump stations will be constructed with buildings designed to withstand Category 5 hurricane force winds and will each include four electrical pumps, emergency generator, diesel fuel storage tank, telemetry system, security system, and access and storage for maintenance and operations equipment. Construction costs total $6.7 million with completion in Spring 2012.
