Slurry/Gritty Water Projects

University of Washington, Husky Stadium | Stadium Sewer Lift Station
346 GPM | 40′ TDH

The renovation of the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium required a new lift station to handle medium flows of wastewater. Robust, 10hp Vaughan Chopper pumps were used in a duplex configuration to macerate solids and to pump under unpredictable conditions.

City of Laguna Beach | High Profile Lift Station Replacement
600 GPM | 77′ TDH

This high flow wet/dry lift station replacement was installed “in the sand” of Main Beach with three dry pit pumps in a 26-feet-deep precast rectangular vault. Triplex split case pumps, sump pumps, an intake/exhaust fan, lights, valves, stairs, and a mezzanine were all provided in the package.

Navajo Tribal Utility Authority
Navajo Tribal Utility Authority | Turnkey Lift Station Replacement
58 GPM | 97′ TDH

This National Park Service lift station replacement was a “turnkey” project designed to meet commercial, municipal, and Navajo EPA standards for medium sewage flows. The design included chopper pumps in a duplex configuration, an inlet-line drop bowl, and a separate below-grade valve assembly.

Romtec Utilities provides full engineering and design services to meet the specific goals of your project. Romtec Utilities’ Engineers are experts in water conveyance systems across a wide array of water types and applications. We work with our clients through every step of the process; from Preliminary Designs and budgetary estimates, submittal and review processes, installation, and all the way through start-up, training, and warranty. At Romtec Utilities, we stand behind our products, and strive to provide the most robust system possible for the given application, while also meeting the budgetary goals for your project.


Romtec Utilities provides a high level of system prefabrication prior to delivery of the system to the jobsite. This greatly reduces construction cost and installation time, as well as potential project delays and change orders. This high level of prefabrication can often reduce installation time from weeks to days. Additionally, Romtec Utilities takes pride in our quality control processes, ensuring that when the system is delivered to the job site everything will function as designed.


Romtec Utilities ensures the quality and success of every pumping system from the early stages of design, all the way through installation and construction. Romtec Utilities will send experienced installation advisors to the site who will advise the installing contractor throughout the installation process providing all parties with the reassurance that the station is constructed and ultimately functioning as designed.


Romtec Utilities’ startup, testing, and training services are essential to the success of any pumping system. Following installation our technicians are on-site working directly with the all parties to field check the control panel, operate the pumps, perform system testing, and provide world class training to all maintenance personnel. Romtec Utilities aims to not only design and supply complete systems, but to help to ensure the success of the system and all who are involved. Having our experienced field technicians on-site should provide a great sense of quality assurance knowing that the station will operate as designed and the personnel responsible for maintenance and upkeep will be prepared.
