Romanian to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Alimentare cu apă potabilă
Romanian term or phrase:staţie de repompare
Alimentarea cu apa a municipiului Roman se realizeaza din captarea de adincime Pildesti - Simionesti, situata pe malul sting al Moldovei, printr-un punct de captare cu 66 de puturi si sapte chesoane - constituind statia cunoscuta sub denumirea "Captarea veche" - si un punct de captare cu 28 de puturi si un dren colector cu diametrul de 400 milimetri si o lungime de 1.070 metri, cunoscute sub denumirea de "Captarea noua". Apa este pompata in trei conducte de aductiune - cu o lungime totala de 36 kilometri - si transporta apa in cele doua ***statii de repompare*** cu rezervoare de acumulare. Statia de repompare 1 are o capacitate de inmagazinare de 15.000 metri cubi, iar statia de repompare 2 are o capacitate de inmagazinare de 500 metri cubi. Dupa ce se realizeaza clorinarea, apa este distribuita in reteaua orasului.

The reclaimed water also is used for cooling at a resource recovery facility and in air conditioning units at commercial buildings, including a large domed sports stadium. WATER RESOURCES By 1900, the municipal wells located in St. Petersburg were being pumped for increasingly longer intervals because of a growing population. By the mid-1920s, chloride in the groundwater began to increase due to seawater intrusion. Realizing that it was facing a potential water crisis, the city entered into a contract with a private company to provide St. Petersburg with a new water supply. The company purchased a section of land in adjacent Hillsborough County, developed a well field, constructed a water treatment plant, and laid approximately 48 kilometers (km) (30 miles [mi]) of 90-centimeter (36 in) water main from the water treatment facility to a water repumping station the company constructed north of the city. In the early 1940s, St. Petersburg purchased the company’s assets, including a second undeveloped section of land in Hillsborough County, as well as Weeki Wachee Springs, located in Hernando County. The water company bought the spring with the intention of utilizing it as a water source at some future date when it would be more cost-effective. The spring is located more than 97 km (60 mi) from St. Petersburg.
