Thomas Manor Park Pond & Pump Station Improvements - El Paso, Texas

Posted Mar 06, 2021 by CEA Group

The Thomas Manor Park Pond and Pump Station Improvements project addressed a non-working pump station and the rehabilitation of an existing park, originally designed in the 1960’s to collect rain runoff, into a new multi-tier park-pond capable of alleviating current flooding conditions to the surrounding area.

CEA designed a new pump station, control building, force

main, pond, park improvements, and drainage structures. A technical memorandum

report addressed pond and pump inefficiencies as well as recommendations to

resolve the recurring flooding along Knights Street. A Hydrological and

Hydraulic Analysis model, using HEC-HMS, was conducted by CEA and determined

the existing pond was undersized and several alternatives were

presented to address the drainage problems. Extensive coordination

with TxDOT and the EP Water Stormwater Operations Dept. was conducted to

videotape the inside of the existing 48-inch RCP located along Loop 375 (Border

Highway). An existing conditions base hydraulic model was created to

simulate the current pipeline analysis and its pipe capacities. Improvements

consisted of a new 4,000 g.p.m. pump station with corresponding piping, control

room, standby generator, and jib crane, installation

of a new 8-ft wide asphalt trail approximately 2,000 feet in length and the installation

of approximately 960 linear feet of 8- and 12-inch sanitary sewer force main.
