Structural and Architectural Design of Pumping Stations - 01...

Chapter - 01 : Introduction...

1-1. Purpose and Scope...

The purpose of this manual is to present the primary features common to pumping station facilities intended for interior drainage on civil works flood protection projects and to present guidance for their architectural and structural design. Much of this guidance is general in nature with liberal reference to appropriate Corps manuals and other design guides. However, specific design guidance is provided for areas involving loading or other factors unique to pumping station structures.

1-2. Applicability...

This manual is applicable to all HQUSACE-/OCE elements and field operating activities having civil works responsibilities.

1-3. References...

The following manuals and design guides contain information pertinent to the design of pumping stations and appurtenant structures.
