Case Study

Addressing Chronic Flooding In El Paso, TX

The city of El Paso, TX, lies on the tip of the Chihuahuan desert, and it is not uncommon for a year’s worth of rain to occur in a matter of days during the summer. These rain events have caused serious damage throughout the city for years, and the flooding has always been particularly bad in the historic district.

With Flygt’s assistance, a new pump station was developed with a pumping capacity of 27,000 gallons per minute (GPM). By utilizing siphoning methods, the city was able to accommodate the large swing in river elevations, allowing the station to operate at both high and low river levels.
