The 2,500-gallon per minute Well No. 4 pump was designed in the 1960s and is obsolete. The control system is unreliable and inefficient, and the piping system has been dismantled to use for parts in other systems.
The station experiences large pressure fluctuations and configuring the pump control valve is challenging. The pump house also needs to be updated to ensure reliability during peak demands.
The Well No. 4 pump and piping were improved in 2013, so no further improvements are anticipated.
