Integrated Pipeline Project Lake Intake Pump Stations


Tarrant Regional Water District

The Integrated Pipeline (IPL) project is a partnership between Tarrant Regional Water District and the City of Dallas. It consists of approximately 150 miles of pipeline, delivering raw water from east Texas into the D/FW area. Three new lake intake pump stations at Lake Palestine, Cedar Creek Lake, and Richland Chambers Lake are sized to provide up to 350MGD. JCC1 has seven 3500HP motors; LP1 has five 4000HP motors; RC1 has six 3250HP motors. Each of these stations will have a dedicated 138kV / 4160V substation with two 20MVA transformers to serve approximately 25MVA of electric load. The design included medium voltage main switchgear, 4160V distribution, transformers, 480V motor control centers, and 4160V TEWAC motors. New substations, chemical facilities, and other support systems are included for these new pump stations. GAI is designing the electrical systems for these pump stations.
