Lift Stations

If not Gravity

Whenever possible, gravity is used to move sanitary sewer water from place to place. Large sewer mains are placed very deep into the earth to allow the smaller mains to slant towards them, using gravity to assure that the water moves away from residences and businesses.

Occasionally the relative positions of housing or business units and the nearest sewer mains require lift stations to be installed. These installations have wells similar to the headworks wet-well, but much smaller. Water moves by gravity into the lift station well, and is then pumped up to the level necessary to allow it to again move by gravity into the sewer main or interceptor sewer and be carried to the plant.

Constant staff supervision is necessary to watch for problems and prevent overflow. Each lift station connects to the main plant through a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System) and feeds data about its operating status so that prompt action can be taken to prevent trouble. Backup generators protect each lift station.
