Rincon Point, City of Carpinteria – Beachside Septic Replacement
An upscale beachside community in California needed this medium flow wastewater lift station to replace septic systems used at each home. To meet the requirements of the beachside location, this system includes Ameron T-Lock PVC lining on both a precast concrete sump and emergency overflow basin. A below-grade vault contains the system’s valve and meter assemblies. Large bluffs between the beach and the city treatment plant required super-high head submersible pumps. The system electrical controls comprise redundant controls and level sensing with SCADA integration.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Romtec Utilities worked with the Carpinteria Sanitary District and its engineer, Penfield and Smith, to design and engineer this lift station system. Romtec Utilities worked hard to meet the strict requirements for this uncommon lift station application. The beachside location and very high TDH requirements created a unique project that needed expertise in pumping systems. Penfield and Smith worked with Romtec Utilities on previous projects and was convinced that Romtec Utilities would be able to provide the lift station solution for this project. They worked consistently with the Carpinteria Sanitary District to make sure that a Romtec Utilities designed and supplied packaged lift station would be installed at Rincon Point. Tierra Contracting, Inc. was awarded the installation for this project. A control building was also supplied by our sister company, Romtec.
