Arctic Directory: Rain for Rent emergency flood response

On March 10, the Fort Wayne, Ind., wastewater treatment plant faced a shutdown due to cresting floodwaters.

Rain for Rent received a phone call that evening from the Fort Wayne city engineer requesting a 30-MGD bypass system. Within the hour, the company said, Rain for Rent personnel designed a pumping system consisting of two 12-inch DV-300, four 8-inch DV-200c, and two 6-inch DV-150i power primea pumps, including hoses and fittings.

After getting authorization, the company went into emergency response mode, calling in personnel, assembling and loading equipment, sending three semi-trailer trucks to the project site. When the crew arrived, the retention pond was completely full and the river was 24 feet above flood level. Within three hours, the system was working to lower the water level. Rain for Rent supplied 12 additional pumps throughout the downtown area as backup for the city.
