Los Alamos National Laboratory – High Security Lift Station
A high-security federal facility purchased this package lift station to meet medium sewage flow and classified installation requirements. Installation required a 13-foot-diameter hole for the wet well to be drilled to avoid a network of buried conduit and infrastructure. The hole was 45-feet-deep, so custom alignment brackets were provided to set the 6-foot-diameter manhole risers without positioning a person in the hole. For the final step, the gravity line was horizontally drilled 807 ft. from grade to a 16-square-inch junction located on the sump 36 feet below grade.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Working for a high-security federal client requires expert design and services as well as expert conduct at the job site. Romtec Utilities worked with this federal client, its engineers, and its contractors/installers to meet exact design and equipment layout specifications. The design and layout needed to be precise because horizontal drilling of the gravity line needed to meet up exactly with the wet well penetration. On the job site, Romtec Utilities advisors and technicians needed to follow several protocols for appearance, supervision, conduct, and record-keeping. Romtec Utilities understood and complied with every requirement for this facility while supplying a lift station designed to exact specifications.
