Drainage Pump Station Operation Manuals

​We help you improve pump station operations and reduce flooding risk.

As  long-time pump station employees retire, critical experience is lost.  Operations can vary greatly from station to station and new employees  may not fully understand what action to take should a station component  fail. Standard operations are typically not an issue, but when equipment  fails, response time is most important.  Technological advances have improved automatic operations of pumping  stations, however, what happens if automation fails?  Will the station  operator know what steps to take?

Our  team will visit each of your pump stations, review as-built documents,  and compile equipment O&M manuals. We will then develop or update  the operation manual for each station that defines the operations and  maintenance key components, overall station operations and step by step  instructions for operations during   component failure.

These operation manuals will improve efficiency, reduce risk, and facilitate personnel training.


  • Compile as-built drawings for each facility

  • Compile O&M manuals for individual facility components

  • Conduct site visits to document station components and operations

  • Develop descriptions of major station components along with control strategies, options and maintenance information

  • Develop  a guide on the station’s operations during normal and emergency  operations, identify types of automation control failure and how to  bypass if needed

  • Develop a quick start-up guide for pumping operations

  • Incorporate  the major components, operations guide, and quick start up guide into  an operation manual for each of your drainage pump stations

Let's talk about your needs.
