MWA’s Rebuilt And Repaired Pumps Increase Reliability, Efficiency, And Capacity

Rather than scrap a pair of veteran pumps, a regional public water utility elected to have them rebuilt and reinstalled by experts to increase reliability, efficiency, and capacity.

The Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority (CCMWA) is a regional public utility that provides wholesale potable water for drinking and fire protection to 11 retail water suppliers, one industrial customer, and one institutional customer. The water transmission network is fed from two CCMWA water treatment plants–the Quarles Water Treatment Plant and the Wyckoff Water Treatment Plant–for maximum flexibility and reliability.

Due to problems with the pumps, including poor performance, increased maintenance, scarcity of parts, and inefficient power usage, the CCMWA decided to have them repaired and rebuilt as opposed to building a new expensive high service pump station.
