Title: Highway Stormwater Pump Station Design

Description: Highway Stormwater Pump Station Design, Hydraulic Engineering Circular No. 24 (HEC-24), provides a comprehensive and practical guide for the design of stormwater pump station systems associated with transportation facilities. Guidance is provided for the planning and design of pump stations, which collect, convey, and discharge stormwater flowing within and along the right-of-way of transportation systems. Methods and procedures are given for determining cumulative inflow, system storage needs, pump configuration and selection, discharge system size, and sump dimensions. Pump house features are identified and construction and maintenance considerations are addressed. Additionally, considerations for retrofitting existing stormwater pump stations are presented.
