Jim Higgs, Warren Frizell. 2004. "Investigation of the Proposed Lake Plant Pumping Plant". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number HL-2004-02.

Abstract: Investigations of the Lake Plant Pump Station were carried out by Reclamation for the Lower Colorado River Authority. A review of the plant design and layout was completed for compliance with the ANSI Hydraulic Institute Standards for Pumps. A 3-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of a single pump can was created using Flow Science, Inc.'s Flow-3D. The original design was modeled as well as a final design based on the HI review and results from the model run with the initial design. Final can design details are presented that will provide improved flow conditions into the pump bell, lessening the chance of future pump-performance problems.
