PID provides planning, design, consultancy, project management and construction in a variety of related fields. As engineers and problem-solvers, we are confronted daily with a very wide range of tasks, from research into on-site sanitation sustainability questions, to the design of sophisticated water pumping stations, to the planning of hydro-electric power production. Mainly for the South African Water Research Commission, we have completed a number of innovative research projects, primarily focused on water supply and sanitation, appropriate and intermediate technology, and sustainability of infrastructure and project implementation.
This pumpstation was designed for the Sampofu Water Project, which is built alongside the Tukela River. The dry well housing these pumps is about 8 metres below ground level, and the wet well is below the pumps.
