Tennessee Valley Authority at Shawnee Fossil Plant – Industrial Sewer
This industrial power plant needed a package lift station to meet the requirements for municipal wastewater. The 23-foot-deep sump holds duplex Goulds submersible sewage pumps specified to meet the 50 gpm maximum flow requirements. A precast concrete valve vault contains the system valves and a force main junction. Both the below-grade wet well and valve vault are pedestrian rated. Liquid level-sensing controls are a pressure transducer and floats for backup. The outdoor control panel includes a receptacle for an owner supplied onsite generator.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) contacted Romtec Utilities to design, manufacture, and supply this straightforward lift station for industrial wastewater at the Shawnee Fossil Plant. Although the design for this lift station was uncomplicated, TVA preferred to hire a company with known experience in the power generation industry to meet its requirements. Romtec Utilities also provided TVA with a substantial cost discount on the total price of the lift station through the Romtec Utilities’ GSA contract. These two qualities were important to TVA to ensure the success of this project at the Shawnee Fossil Plant, and Romtec Utilities was able to meet these expectations.
