California American Water builds new pumping station

The new pumping station will enable these systems to receive purchased water from the City of Sacramento.

The area currently relies almost solely on local groundwater to supply a population of approximately 56 000. Once completed, the US$3.2 million pumping station will be able to pump more than 3 million gallons of water per day, which is about 35% of the area’s average daily use.

The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2012.
