Biological Wastewater Pump & Lift Stations
Available from Pollution Control Systems, Inc.
Sewage / Wastewater lift stations, also called pump stations, are used for pumping wastewater or sewage from a lower to higher elevation, particularly where the elevation of the source is not sufficient for gravity flow and/or when the use of gravity conveyance will result in excessive excavation and higher construction costs.
PCS provides lift stations in steel, fiberglass and poured in place concrete packages (concrete is by others) and up to 5 horsepower and 4" discharge ONLY.
A wastewater pump station may be used as a matter of economics or to overcome inadequate hydraulic head when it is obvious that no other solution is practical. For instance, it may be more economical to utilize a sewage pump station to pump or lift the sewage over a ridge and let it flow by gravity to a sewage treatment plant, or to elevate sewage to pass through a sewage treatment system by gravity.
Often called a lift station, these units are commonly built as a factory assembled package system. Key elements of pump or lift stations include a wastewater treatment receiving well (wet-well), equipped with lift pumps and piping with valves, a junction box, and an equipment control panel with alarm system.
