COURSE NO: C04-027
An Introduction to Pumping Stations for Water Supply Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance and criteria for the design of high lift and water booster pumping stations in potable water distribution systems.  Criteria are provided for pumping units operating as components in distribution systems. Guidance is provided for sizing and selection of pumps and pump drives, piping, control valving, flow metering, pump station structures, and operational features.


This 4 PDH online course is intended for civil engineers and other infrastructure design and construction professionals who want to learn about the basic technology, design guidelines and materials and equipment used in design and construction of potable water supply and distribution systems for residential, industrial and commercial developments.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning about main pumping stations located near water treatment or potable water storage facilities which supply water to the distribution system and pump directly into the piping system
  • Understanding the basis for determining the flow demand of a water supply and distribution system
  • Learning about the factors to be considered in a hydraulic network analysis to determine system demand
  • Knowing the recommended maximum, minimum and residual curb pressures for a water distribution system
  • Learning about the two types of pumps generally used for potable water pumping applications
  • Learning about "normal rising", "drooping" and "steeply rising" pump head capacity curves
  • Learning about design and layout recommendations for pump supply and discharge piping
