The purpose of this study is to analyze the existing system and two alternate methods of peak electrical demand shaving for the water distribution system at Fort Bliss, Texas. The existing system will be referred to as Alternative 1 throughout the report. Alternative 2 includes the addition of water storage capacity in order to allow the well and booster pumps to operate only during non-peak electrical periods. Alternative 3 includes the use of natural gas powered electric generators at each well and booster pumping station. These generators would be utilized during the peak electrical periods. This report is prepared in accordance with the detailed scope of work for Contract No. DACA63-91-D-0048, Delivery Order 0005 Refer to Appendix J for complete scope of work. The blast Life Cycle Cost In Design LCCID program with the ECIP option was used to determine the Life Cycle Cost LCC and Savings to Investment Ratio SIR for the analyzed retrofit for a 25 year study life. The existing water distribution system consists of 17 well pumps and 5 booster pumping stations. The desert field well and booster pumps were not included in this study due to their remote location. The well and booster pumps provide water supply to several ground elevated storage tanks located across the reservation Refer to Appendix K for map indicating general locations. These storage tanks are located to provide three pressure zones. The upper pressure zone is maintained by a one million gallon tank. The intermediate pressure zone is maintained by a 0.6 million gallon tank. Pressure in the lower zone is maintained by three 3 elevated storage tanks.
