At this week’s Water Infrastructure Conference, our client Missouri American Water will be presenting a technical session – Transient Pressure Management in St. Louis County.
Missouri American Water (MOAW) owns and operates the St. Louis Metro water system which serves the majority of St. Louis County and parts of St. Charles County.
The water system delivers an average day demand of 157-MGD via four water treatment plants and some additional interconnections. An additional 46 booster or pump storage stations assist in transmitting water supply throughout 4,500 miles of water main.
Little elevated storage is available in the system, resulting in pressure fluctuations as pumping facilities are operated to maintain reasonable pressures through all demand scenarios.
In one component of a multi-part strategy to curtail water main breaks, MOAW has been focused on managing system pressures to reduce fluctuations and calm down water networks.
