Interior flood control analysis and pump station design for Devils Lake Pumping Stations.

The City of Devils Lake, ND needed to raise the earth embankments around the lake by 5 feet to account for an anticipated increase in lake levels. Through a fast-track design for the first phase of the project, Bergmann performed an interior flood control analysis for the watershed draining to the Creel Bay and Eagle Bend Pump Stations. To protect the City, an integrated plan was then developed for a 8,500 SF pump station at East Ditch located behind the raised and relocated embankments.
