The Delta Pumping Plant, Intake Channel, and Clifton Court Forebay are located at the south edge of the Sacramento—San Joaauin Delta approximate Iv 12 miles northwest of Tracy, California The Delta Pumping Plant is located on the Con'tra Costa and Alameda County into two existing 15—foot diameter discharge lines. Water is exported from the south Delta at Banks Pumping Plant and Tracy Pumping Plant (Figure ). Water can flow westward to both export sites from the lower San Joaquin River via south Old River (hereafter Old River) and Grant Line Canal. Approximately 74 discharge sites exist on these and other. Tee, line flow Tee, branch flow Cross, line flow Cross, branch flow Wye, 45 ° Table 2 – K Values, Source: Pumping Station Design To calculate the headloss due to minor losses, the following equation can be used: Equation 3 Valve (Fully Open) K Value Ball Check Valves Rubber flapper (v.   Red Bluff Research Pumping Plant (RPP) is located along the Sacramento River at the Bureau of Reclamation's Operations and Maintenance Complex for Red Bluff Diversion Dam and the Tehama-Colusa Canal. The dam and pumping plant are located at river km (river mile ) above San Francisco Bay near Red Bluff, California.

Constructed from to , Edmonston Pumping Plant provides the largest lift, nearly 2, vertical feet, in the SWP system. The plant’s two main discharge lines stair-step 8, feet up the mountain side to a foot-high, foot-diameter surge tank. Chapter 8 Irrigation Pumping Plants Figure 8–20 Head-discharge relationships for parallel and series operations 8–17 Figure 8–28 Example of pump intake screen cleaned by rotating sprays near 8–27 Richland, WA Figure 8–29 Pump unit on a flowing barge in an animal waste pond near Nampa, ID 8– Fig. An intake structure. Pumping station. In some cases, the irrigation water source lies below the level of the irrigated fields. Then a pump must be used to supply water to the irrigation system (see Fig. 71). Fig. A pumping station. There are several types of pumps, but the most commonly used in irrigation is the centrifugal pump. Pressure Loss Coming from Pipe Friction (h3) If is higher than , in case of turbulent water stream,. where l = pipe friction constant l = length of the pipe-line (m) v = water velocity in the pipe (m/s) d = inner diameter (m) l = kinematic viscosity (m 3 /sec) as a function of water temperature.. It is 10 6 at 10°C and 1. 10 6 at 20°C. Pipe friction constant according to the.

Institute Standards. It is recommended that these books be part of the permanent library of the fluid system designer. PUMP TYPES. There are generally two types of pumps used for potable water pumping applications: the vertical turbine pump, line shaft and submersible types, and.   A schematic line diagram of system layout need to be prepared; b. Canal design For feasibility level design, typical canal cross sections can be related to canal discharge and ground conditions. For rehabilitation designs, canal designs, canal design are only required for reaches where complete remodeling is needed. Intake Pipe and Pumping Station • Intakes are connected by pipe lines or by tunnels • Intake pipes are designed to operate at self cleansing velocities, 3 to 4 fps at gravitational flow or suction flow • Pump wells are often quite deep depending on the elevation of water level in times of drought.
