Abstract:

The Chasewood Pump Station/Residential Area in southwest Houston was selected for a detailed analysis of ground and surface storage water pumping by a University of Houston and City of Houston team. The recently improved KYPIPE2 computer simulation program from the University of Kentucky was utilized for the Chasewood Pump Station Area. Geographic Information System (G.I.S.) maps were also made for the pipe networks. Water pressures and flow rates were simulated for a variety of system conditions.
