Sewage Pumping

Pumping stations, also known as lift stations, are designed to collect and handle raw sewage that is fed from underground gravity pipelines. The pit, or “wet well” as it is commonly known, will collect the sewage until a desired level is met. The wet well is equipped with a level detection; usually float switches, which will turn the pump or pumps on when the predetermined level is reached. This starts the process of lifting the sewage through the sewer force main to either another lift station or gravity manhole.

These systems are commonly used in residential, commercial, and municipal areas that require pumping versus gravity. The sewage pumping station also come in various sizes: 4’, 5’, 6’, 7’, 8’, 10’, & 12’ diameter. Also square and rectangular tanks are available up to 12’ x 20’ inside dimensions, up to a max weight of 100,000 pounds.
