Abstract/Artist Statement

Due to the current drought experienced throughout California, there has been an increased need for a reliable water supply. Many agriculturalists have depended on pumping groundwater from their wells in order to obtain water for growing crops. However, a growing concern involving the depletion of groundwater in recent years has prompted a need for alternative solutions. Established in 1948, the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District (NSJWCD) provides a reliable water supply to the 150,000 acres of agricultural land near the City of Lodi . It is the mission of NSJWCD to supply these agricultural fields with access to surface water instead of pumping valuable groundwater from the Northern San Joaquin Groundwater Basin. In order to accomplish their mission and continue to service an expanding demand for water from their agricultural customers, NSJWCD has proposed new pipelines as well as updates to some of their existing pump stations and pipeline. In addition, the NSJWCD has proposed that an existing pump station and irrigation pipeline be demolished and redesigned in order to meet the design specifications and the future needs of the community. Alpha Zulu will design the pump station, irrigation pipeline, foundation and wet well. The client will be provided with a final report summarizing the design. Detailed drawings of the pipe network layout, wet well, connections and pump will also be included. The pipe network layout, pump station, connections and foundation will be drawn using AutoCAD drafting software. The structural analysis of the wet well will be performed using RISA 3D. Additionally, Alpha Zulu will provide the client with a California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Report as well as a summary of our design material quantities and cost report.
