The pump station is pretty run down, you could go take a look around the place, see if you find anything strange going on. What do you say?”— Morgan Blake
This station includes a small industrial building with a wrecked red truck rusting in front of it. There's also a dumpster to the right of the entrance. It is located inside of Fiend territory and is directly east of Vault 3.
Inside of the station, there are two rooms, an office section, and a bigger room with four pumps. There's a pump station terminal on the desk in the office section that controls the pumps. Passing the 50 Science check will restore the network connection of the terminal and will award 50 XP. After fixing the computer, the Courier can see information regarding pumped water being contaminated by radioactive material. There are three Fiends inside the building: one in the office, and two in the pump room.
Entering the building is considered trespassing, and taking anything results in a negative Karma penalty.
The west pump station appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
