King Kennedy Pump Station

Located 40725 King Drive Mechanicsville Maryland

Background – King Kennedy Water System Replacement Phase 2

The King Kennedy Water System is a stand-alone independent system consisting of two (2) wells, one hydro-pneumatic tank, 6,350 linear feet of water mains (2 to 8 inches in diameter), and has no operational fire hydrants. The water system was originally installed in several phases under private ownership circa 1970 and was later annexed by MetCom.

The King Kennedy Water System currently affects 67 single-family homes (service area). It is located approximately one-mile west-southwest of the intersection of Three Notch Road (MD Route 235) and Loveville Road (MD Route 247) (see below location map).  The water mains and hydrants will be addressed under the MD247 Loveville Road Water Main Replacement project, which is currently under design.

Project Scope of Work

Phase 1:

Phase 1 of the King Kennedy project was operationally accepted on March 18, 2020, and included the replacement of Well #1 which was originally constructed in the 1970s and subsequently abandoned in 2015. New construction included the 150-gallon-per-minute (GPM) well, piping, and fittings to the existing pump station.

 

Phase 2:

Phase 2 of this project will provide a new 40,000-gallon ground storage tank, a 6,768-gallon hydropneumatic storage tank, a new well house with controls, an emergency generator, and an upgrade to 3-phase electric service. These improvements will increase reliability and provide a source for fire protection/suppression for the customers dependent on this water system.
