BOOSTER PUMP STATION 106 RECONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Watch this space for information on future meetings.
Booster Pumping Station 106 (BPS-106) is an interzone transfer pumping station located on Madison’s near-west side in the sloped embankment of Reservoir Park. The primary function of BPS-106 is to transfer water from Madison’s main pressure zone (PZ 6, central Madison) into the City’s southwest pressure zone (PZ 7, west side, southwest side). The pumping station draws water from the adjacent 6,000,000 gallon buried reservoir (hence, Reservoir Park), which stores water from wells in PZ 6, and then BPS-106 pumps the water into the higher-pressure PZ-7 areas. This pumping facility has been operating since 1926 - making it Madison Water Utility’s oldest operating facility.
The reconstruction of BPS-106 is one of Madison Water Utility’s high-priority infrastructure replacement projects (see the Madison Water Utility Infrastructure Management Plan). The replacement of BPS-106 is part of the Water Utility’s 2012-2014 Capital Improvement budget. The BPS-106 reconstruction project addresses both condition/deterioration problems and will increase the reliability of this critical system facility.
The scope of the replacement project is as follows:
On August 7, 2012, the City of Madison Common Council authorized the City/Madison Water Utility to execute a Professional Services agreement with Strand Associates, Inc. to provide engineering and design services for the reconstruction of BPS-106.
