Horse Racetrack Bets On Flygt For Pump Station Design

200-acre Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, NJ, is supported by a series of barns and other support facilities that house in excess of 500 horses during track operations. In the mid-1990s the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA) constructed facilities to collect horse wash water and first flush stormwater runoff for conveyance to the Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority (TRWRA), a wastewater treatment facility located in Monmouth Beach. At that time, TRWRA could only accept up to 125,000 gallons per day. Runoff volumes often exceeded that amount, resulting in direct discharge to Branchport Creek.
