Cedar Point Sports Center – Lift Station Pumping into Pressure Sewer

Project Assets

Project Description

Romtec Utilities provided a complete wastewater lift station for a sports park in Ohio. This lift station collects wastewater from the on-site facilities and then pumps into an existing force main. In order to pump into the pressurized force main, an Allen-Bradley PLC panel with VFDs and a pressure transducer were engineered to maintain pressure while pumping. The pressure transducer communicates with the VFD which increases or decreases the electrical current to the pumps. This allows the pumps to meet changing pressure conditions in the force main. 7.5 hp Ebara pumps were included in a duplex configuration to meet the necessary flow requirements, and a sump pump inside the valve vault empties accumulated water to prevent damage to the components. To regulate the pump cycle, a pressure transducer is used to sense well levels, and Nolta floats for backup level sensing.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities

Sports Fields, Inc. first contacted Romtec Utilities for the design and supply of a lift station for the Cedar Point Sports Center in Sandusky, Ohio. We worked alongside them and Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc. the projects engineers, on the design of the lift station. Choosing to pump into an existing pressure sewer line was a great choice that saved money on the installation of this pumping system. It can be difficult to get a reliable pump station with these capabilities. Once the final design was complete and approved by the reviewing parties, Sports Fields, Inc. purchased the lift station. Miller Brothers Construction installed the system, and a Romtec Utilities technician provided on-site construction advice and commissioned the system while providing training for the owners & operators.
