San Andreas Sanitary District – Unique Lift Station Design
A new school needed this package lift station to pump stored wastewater every 24 hours. The sump was oversized by design to hold in excess of 5,000 gallons of sewage that would be pumped out at specified medium pumping rate to a low-level shutoff float control. The submersible solids handling pumps in a duplex configuration are accessible by a crane installed on the top slab. An outdoor UL listed control panel is tied-in to an onsite generator for backup power and utilizes an autodialer for communications.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Working with Kjeldsen, Sinnock, and Neudeck Inc., KSN, (Civil E.) and KW Emerson Inc. (GC), Romtec Utilities engineered this lift station with specific customizations not typical in wastewater lift station design. Mountain Oak School and the San Andreas Sanitary District specified the need for a sump capable of holding 24 hour inflow. Romtec Utilities was able to communicate the probable maintenance concerns associated with an oversized sump and provide both realistic expectations and training to fit the design. Understanding the issues an oversized sump can encounter, KSN and the San Andreas Sanitary District approved the design, supply, and services. A complete start-up and training by Romtec Utilities ensured that the lift station operators understood the details with this custom system.
