This is where Lark Ellen crosses under the 10 fwy. On the western corner across the street is an old Thunderbolt siren no longer used.

rlshieldjr do you know if that Thunderbolt is a 1000,1000T or 1003 Model?

I am not familiar with sirens, other than what I have learned from those more in the know. I will post a pic, if I can find a light near it and on Flickr.

@ Mike, The MV was turned on for testing and the amber running light was on during a pump run. These stations are inspected regularly to find problems to prevent flooding of underpasses. They also have a 480V input jack to plug in a generator in case of a power outage.

flooding? waht are these pumps for? Also is that some ash on the pole where the bracket bolts on? It's a little black...

@Mike - The pump station pumps rain water from an freeway underpass that goes below the normal drainage level. There is a storage tank under the street to hold sudden surges of water so it can be pumped out. We make regular inspections to prevent failures in the event of a rain storm. The ash look is probably just dust or Diesel soot and tire rubber dust that has accumulated over the years.

ahh cool. so the pump is to preveny flash flooding on the roadway?

They are wanting to LEDize the pump station lights, most likely with LED paddles. I'm going to try to save it and replace with a more modern fixture.

Other than instant on and no restrike time I really can't seen any advantages of upgrading to LED.

Same. If it's not used nightly the energy savings will be minimal and so will the return on investment.

rlshieldjr   [Jun 10, 2019 at 03:13 AM]

That is the reason, instant start and restart
