Water Treatment Plant Jenkins Lane – Finished Water Pumping Control Improvements

This project is to install variable frequency drive controls on four of FUD’s largest finished water pumps. The finished water pumps are utilized for distributing water to homes and businesses within the FUD Distribution System. These new variable frequency drives (700HP and 800HP) will provide the Water Treatment Plant with an increased operational flexibility and will enable water pressures and flows to be more efficiently and effectively controlled while water is being distributed. The installation of these drives will also provide a reduced power consumption as compared to the existed operational configuration.
