Project Description

Romtec Utilities designed this packaged wastewater lift station to meet the medium sewage flows of this giant yogurt manufacturing plant. This duplex lift station uses Ebara submersible centrifugal pumps designed for wastewater applications. The force main from this pump station to a pre-treatment facility is not long, creating low head conditions. The system valves are integrated into the discharge piping to simplify the design and lower the cost. An outdoor UL listed control panel is wall mounted to the side of the plant for easy, visible access.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities

Chobani, Inc. contacted Romtec Utilities to design a wastewater lift station to be installed during the construction of its new 1-million-square-foot yogurt plant, the world’s largest. CH2M Hill (Civil E.) managed this project which also included building a pre-treatment facility for wastewater from the plant. Romtec Utilities was awarded the supply of the package lift station to pump wastewater from the plant to the pre-treatment facility. The success of this project ultimately led Chobani and CH2M Hill to request a second lift station that was needed after expanding the plant in the design phase. Romtec Utilities worked with McAlvain Construction, Inc. (GC) to get the designs approved and the lift station installed.
