Project Description

This lift station was designed to meet the low sewage flow requirements of a municipal lift station that would also serve new construction and commercial buildings. Submersible cutter pumps in a duplex configuration and an inlet-line drop bowl provide reliable pumping capabilities, and a separate below-grade valve assembly holds the system valves. A sheltered alternator panel with a basic alarm manages the mechanical and electrical system controls. Liquid level-sensing is managed by float controls wired for intrinsically safe.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities

Romtec Utilities was contacted by Haling and Associates (Civil E.) to assist with the preliminary designs of a lift station for the Plumas National Forest. This lift station presented unique engineering challenges because of the existing force main. The force main was long (over 6,000 feet), narrow (4 inches), and changed elevations in multiple locations. Romtec Utilities found pumps (a Tsurumi cutter model) capable of matching the unique force main without causing concerns for air locking or cavitation. Komada, LLC was the contractor selected for the lift station installation, and Romtec Utilities provided an on-site installation advisor to facilitate a fast and simple process.
