Pumping Station 15 Sustainable Rehabilitation

The Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District retained Baxter & Woodman to design and construct sustainable improvements to upgrade the condition, capacity, and reliability of the 40 year old Pumping Station 15. The improvements included:

  • Increasing the station’s design capacity for average daily flows and firm pumping capacity
  • Installing new pumping equipment, pipes, valves and appurtenances
  • Installing new HVAC, electrical, and control systems
  • Installing new flow monitoring equipment in exterior vault.
  • Constructing a building addition

Green infrastructure elements of the project included:

  • Green roof
  • Permeable pavement
  • 8 kW solar panels
  • Bio-swale
  • 2 bio-infiltration basins

In 2018, the project was awarded an Envision Gold Award by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure to recognize work that went above and beyond to deliver improvements to the social, economic, and environmental conditions of the community.
