All seven pumps are now operational at the new FBCLID 2 pump station located behind Clements High School. The Third Pump Station houses seven large storm water pumps that are powered by 1,500-horsepower motors. The new pump station is now able to move more than 1,000,000 gallons of water per minute, which represents a 400% increase in pumping capacity for Ditch A. If a power outage occurs, the electric pumps can still be powered by natural gas generators located onsite.
FBCLID 2 will bid a smaller project during Fall 2021 to put the finishing touches on the Third Pump Station after the main constriction contract is complete. The final site improvements include decorative fencing, landscaping, additional parking, and an operator office. The District plans to host a public event for the community early next year, when all construction is complete.
FBCLID 2 appreciates your patience as the District works to complete this critical flood control project. Please contact FBCLID 2 directly with any questions or concerns: www.fbclid2.com/contact.
