Fort Collins Soccer Club

Set against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, Fort Collins Soccer Club rivals most professional facilities featuring 21 soccer fields on 79-acres. The club provides an excellent facility for both children and adults to play this popular sport, offering leagues for adult, arsenal, and recreational soccer.

Aqua Engineering provided irrigation and pumping system design services for this versatile site. The fields are irrigated by existing wells that pump into an irrigation pond. The irrigation pump system consists of a prefabricated, skid-mounted, dual vertical turbine variable frequency drive. This station provides the required instantaneous flows needed to irrigate the site. The pumping system also includes a self-cleaning filtration system with automatic screen brush, backwash valve, and controls to keep the system clean and reduce clogging. A programmable logic controller operates the pumps.

A precast concrete building was included in the construction documents for the pump station.
