United Water Idaho provides domestic water demands for many parts of Idaho, including the Bogus Basin service area located in Boise’s Northend. The infrastructure that supplies water to the residential and commercial areas of Boise’s Northend is being redesigned to meet the potable water demands and new required fire flows. This infrastructure, the Good Street Booster Pump Station and Bogus Basin Reservoir, must be replaced to meet required domestic water demands with a peak day demand of 277 gallons per minute as well as the residential and commercial fire flow demands of 1,500 gallons per minute and 3,000 gallons per minute, respectively.

Element Engineering is responsible for the hydraulic and water resources engineering associated with this project. The new Bogus Basin Reservoir will be necessary in order to satisfy the new amount of fire suppression storage as well as peak day demand of the residential area. Booster pumps will be selected to provide adequate increase in pressure head to convey the water to the Bogus Basin Reservoir as well as the commercial area distribution system. Criteria driving redesign of this water infrastructure is based mainly on new commercial fire flow requirements, 2,500 to 3,000 gallons per minute.
