This course provides an overview of the location and type selection of stormwater pump stations. A major portion of the course is devoted to recommended hydraulic design procedures for sizing and optimizing stormwater pump stations. This course is also offered as a 1-day add-on to FHWA-NHI-135027 Urban Drainage Design. Topics to be discussed include, site considerations, hydrology, storage, pump configuration, mass curve routing, pump selection, sump dimensions, and mechanical and electrical considerations.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Determine locations where pump stations are appropriate
  • List types of pumps and pump stations
  • Apply basic hydraulic principles to accomplish graphical mass curve routing
  • Size pumps and determine start/stop elevations
  • Determine storage volume needed
  • Size wet wells according to industry standards


Highway designers with some experience in storm drainage design, familiarity with mathematical concepts such as algebra and geometry, and a working background in hydraulics and hydrology.
