Magnolia Pacific School – Wastewater Lift Station
The construction of the Magnolia Pacific Technical School in Santa Ana, California needed a wastewater lift station to handle its sewage with medium flows of 78 gpm. To meet these flow requirements, Romtec Utilities engineered a lift station with 5 hp Weil submersible grinder pumps in a duplex configuration. A separate precast concrete valve vault include the lift station control valves as well as an air release valve. Liquid levels sensors were engineered with Nolta floats for in-well level controls. The electric controls are placed safely in a NEMA 4x fiberglass enclosure for outdoor weather protection.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Brandow & Johnston, the engineer for the project, contacted Romtec Utilities to design two pump stations for a stormwater and a wastewater application on this project. Romtec Utilities provided complete design drawings for Brandow & Johnston to use prior to the project going out to bid. Fisher, Inc. was awarded the installation of both the wastewater lift station and the stormwater pump station. Romtec Utilities worked with Fisher Inc. to supply the pumping system to meet their schedule. Romtec Utilities also supplied an installation advisor to provide assistance during the installation process. The owner of the pumping systems, Magnolia Pacific Technical School, received training and O&M documentation for both systems.
