United States Army Prime Power School – Two Distinctive Lift Stations
These package lift stations were designed to meet the high head pumping requirements for this training facility of the US Army Corps of Engineers. For one station with over 7,000 ft. of 8” force main, 35 hp duplex submersible centrifugal pumps were supplied to achieve the 300 gpm flow rate . The second lift station used smaller, 4 hp duplex grinder pumps to meet its pumping requirements. Outdoor UL listed control panels utilize float controls for level-sensing and soft starters to provide advanced pump diagnostics and to reduce inrush currents. Autodialers were specified for communications.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) needed two new wastewater lift stations that each had unique requirements for design and operation. After contacting Romtec Utilities, the USACE saw that the design, manufacturing, and supply needs would be met by Romtec Utilities. The specifications for each pump station specified that Romtec Utilities or an equally qualified supplier be used to purchase both packaged lift stations. Bloomsdale Excavating was awarded the contract to install both lift stations, and Romtec Utilities worked with them to provide approved designs within their budget. Romtec Utilities worked on this project from the beginning phases to the start-up of each lift station to provide the USACE with reliable long term wastewater solutions.
