Sunshine Canyon Landfill – Leachate Pump Station

Project Assets

Project Description

Republic Services, Inc. needed a new pump station to handle medium flows of wastewater in the form of treated leachate from its Sunshine Canyon Landfill. Precast concrete was used for the valve and meter vault and for the 21-foot-deep wet well structure. Along with robust hatches with fall-protection, the structural units were designed with a full-traffic rating. Two, 15 hp Ebara pumps were used to meet the pumping requirements. A separate meter vault was included to monitor the volume of treated leachate being pumped to the municipal water treatment facility. The electric controls comprised a UL listed control panel with floats for level-sensing and a NEMA 4X enclosure for outdoor operation with additional corrosion protection.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities

Romtec Utilities began working with SCS Engineers on this new wastewater lift station project. SCS, representing its client Republic Services, Inc., required the complete design, engineering, supply, and installation support for the new system. Clois Construction installed the new pump station, and Romtec Utilities provided an on-site technician for installation support and advice. Working with SCS Engineering, Romtec Utilities worked to design a cost-effective lift station with economical components that were robust enough for its specific pumping application. Romtec Utilities also supplied complete “as-built” documentation with O&M manuals for Republic Services, Inc. operators in addition to training.
