The Ace Bowen Pump Station currently operates pumps using both electric motor drivers and internal combustion (IC) engine drivers. The existing electric motor driven pumps consist of three 350 horsepower (hp)pumps and four 250 hp pumps, while the existing IC engine driven pumps are powered by natural gas and consist of six 500 hp pumps each driven by 634 hp engines. Two of the IC engine driven pumps and two of the 250 hp motor driven pumps serve the 1440 PZ. As currently configured, these pumping systems are capable of delivering approximately 24 cfs of potable water to the 1440 PZ. The other two IC engine driven pumps along with three 350 hp and two 250 hp motor driven pumps serve the 1670 PZ. As currently configured, these pumping systems are capable of delivering approximately 45 cfs of potable water to the 1670 PZ.
Rancho California Water District proposes to make improvements at its Ace Bowen Pump Station which include: replacing internal combustion engine pump drivers with electric motor pump drivers; adding fuel cell technology for on-site electric power generation from natural gas; adding a new road to provide all-weather access to the pump station; adding one or more reverse osmosis (RO) concentrate storage tanks to store RO concentrate prior to disposal; and adding associated electrical and communication/instrumentation systems.
