Bailey Bridge Pumping Station and Force Main. Chesterfield County, Virginia.

WRA designed a new 40.5 MGD Bailey Bridge Wastewater Pumping Station to replace an existing under capacity pumping station.

The construction of the new Bailey Bridge Wastewater Pumping Station was in conjunction with the construction of a new 36-inch force main. The Bailey Bridge station capacity is phased through the capacity of the pumping units installed in combination with existing and new parallel force main valving. The initial phase of the pumping station included the installation of four of the six 450 Hp pumps for a safe pumping capacity of 22.5 MGD. Intermediate phases included upgrades to 26 MGD, 36 MGD and an ultimate capacity of 40.5 MGD. The pumping station configuration utilizes adjacent wet and dry well structures below grade and a common superstructure over the drywell with an outside emergency generator in an acoustic enclosure.
