The purpose of this manual is to provide a comprehensive source of design information on storm water pumping stations for highway facilities. However, users are cautioned to use proper engineering judgment and must themselves be entirely responsible for any interpretations and applications of the data and opinions set forth herein. An initial field survey was conducted to determine the present practices and experiences in several States, which proved to be extremely varied, with some basic differences in design concepts. All States were invited to submit information on their installations and most did so. Some of the data presented have been taken from these submittals, and some from relevant literature. Some have been drawn from manufacturers' catalogs. Examples from actual pumping stations have been inncorporated whenever possible, by reproducing photographs or construction drawings in simplified form. Various types of pumping stations are discussed in the early chapters, with guidance as to which might be expected to be most suitable for various conditions. Later chapters deal with station machinery and features, including electrical systems. A number of appendices cover specifications, construction costs, energy economics, and maintenance. (FHWA)
