Talega Zone II Water Booster Pump Station

Talega Zone II Water Booster Pump Station (Santa Margarita Water District):  This water booster pump station is equipped with four 125 hp vertical turbine pumps and housed in an above-ground building with a Pratt pump control check valve, separate control room for VFD/MCC Control System and PLC Controller. The station is capable of operating in a closed system without a reservoir, or with a reservoir during off-peak power periods, which allows for major savings on utility bills.  The facility also has an oversized surge tank for hydropneumatic operation during closed system operation, two flow meters, a pressure relief bypass system and a flow control system to provide domestic water supply at a pre-set rate to supplement the reclaimed reservoir storage.
