Xylem Wins $2.7 Million Contract To Develop Storm Water Drainage System For New Jersey Coastline

Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, has been awarded a $2.7 million contract to supply the equipment and technology for a storm water drainage system to protect against future storm damage along Route 35 on the New Jersey coastline. The new drainage solution is a key part of a $265 million reconstruction program being implemented in the area following the damage caused by Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.

The new, state-of-the-art drainage system will consist of 47 Flygt Slimline pumps and 27 smaller Flygt submersible N-pumps in nine pump stations located at various intervals along the 12-mile stretch of road that was severely damaged by the storm. Flygt MultiSmart pump controllers will ensure the efficient operation of the system. Each of the nine pump stations will have a capacity of moving between 25,000 and 35,000 gallons of water per minute.

“The small footprint of our Flygt Slimline pumps is a core element of the smart design of the drainage system due to limited space available for pump stations under the road in this compact beachfront area,” explained Mark Umile, branch manager for Xylem. “Each of our Flygt Slimline pumps can move 9,000 gallons of water per minute. If a storm overwhelms the regular drainage sewers, our pumps will kick in and pump the excess water back into the bay.”

Chuck Narod, sales representative for Xylem commented, “Xylem’s Flygt R&D, engineering and sales teams have designed a customized and efficient system that harnesses smart technology to solve this challenging storm water issue.”

Installation of the new system will begin before the end of 2013 with part of the new system due to be in operation before summer 2014. For more information on Xylem’s offerings in flooding and urban resilience, see the recently released white paper entitled Solutions for Urban Flood Management: Xylem’s Contribution to Urban Resilience.
