BRIDGEPORT, NJ, July 28, 2011 -- In the wake of last week's devastating fire at Harlem's North River Wastewater Treatment Plant, Godwin Pumps, manufacturer of the Dri-Prime® automatic self-priming, dry-running pump, has been mobilizing pipe and crew to aid in the recovery efforts.

Last Wednesday, five pump engines caught fire in the machine room at the 120 MGD treatment plant. The 75-foot lift station fire had caused sewage to enter watersheds and adjacent beaches.

The two remaining engines that drive the main sewage pumps have been supplemented with six Flygt electric submersible sewage pumps, ranging from 150 hp to 240 hp, to alleviate the temporary overflow conditions. The Flygt pumps were supplied from Cincinnati and Chicago.

Godwin Pumps is supporting the job with piping and engineering. Temporary piping was shipped to the treatment plant, including over 2,000 feet of 18" pipe and 6,000 feet of 24" pipe. Several pipe fusion machines are on-site, with technicians operating them around the clock in order to improve the situation as quickly as possible.
