Memorial Villages Water System
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality questioned whether Memorial Villages had the ability to supply the appropriate fire demand for all of the communities that comprise the area including Hedwig Village, Piney Point Village, and Hunters Creek Village. We were tasked with creating a water distribution system model of the Villages entire system using supplied plan sets and information obtained from interviews with the Public Works Department’s maintenance crew. Our team was able to generate a pressure contour map of the system which was correlated with field observations and homeowner complaints. Using this hydraulic model, we were able to run different demand scenarios in order to determine appropriate pumps for each of the pump stations. We also provided adequate information so Memorial Villages would not be required to construct above ground water towers.
