Pump Station

Waterlevel

The new pump station determines the water levels for both the herbal purification basin and the lake park one, this structure replaces the previous system, increasing the water volumes to be treated as a consequence of Magok development and the park creation. The station will have a series of kinematic pumps, monitoring the flow amountby a PLC system that determines the numbers of pump to be activated and their effects. The water management system provides a first operative model, which is suitable for the standard flow conditions:water reachesthe lake park area directly from the Han River, spontaneously filling the basin and defining the main waterway through its own path and creating the urban canals in the southern area of the site.Then the water is pumped to the herbal-purification pond and after the purification process it is pumped into the Han River. The pump station also provides a solution for the flood risk condition: the flood gate system may close off the Magok basinsfrom the Han River, so their water levels is determined just the rainfall and they do not get any consequence from the river flow. In this situation the herbal depuration system becomes a reservoir basin, storing as much water as possible, while the pump station works at the top, pumping the overfilling water into the Han River.
