Prepackaged Pump Stations Provide Optimal Solutions for Wastewater, Stormwater and Industrial Applications

Course Information

Pump stations (also known as lift stations) are an important and ever-growing part of the U.S. infrastructure. All drainage, whether wastewater, stormwater or industrial, takes advantage of gravity for the longest distance feasible by the given topography. In most cases, the gravity opportunity runs out before the required destination. At this point, the media needs to be collected and lifted via pumps and a force main to its final destination or to a new location where gravity can again take over. The number of pump stations is increasing across the country because of a reduction of septic systems, expanding mandates to manage stormwater, and an increasing need to develop in flat, low-lying areas.
