Designing Flow Control Systems

When designing a bypass system, we account for the following criteria:

  • Average and peak flows provided by the owner as well as real-time flows observed by IPR
  • Depth and distance of the system to determine the total dynamic head
  • Any lateral connections that will add flow to the main bypass
  • Optimal pump size and quantities to keep equipment and fuel cost down
  • Placement of the bypass system to ensure minimal impact to the community and project
