First-Flush Pumping

Manage Contaminants in Stormwater with First-Flush Systems

Engineering Expertise for Pumping into Existing Pressure Mains

Many “first flush” pump stations will need to pump into an existing force main to treatment. Romtec Utilities provides the engineering capabilities to reliably pump all types of “first flush” stormwater into an existing main and on to treatment.

Combine "First Flush" into a Larger Stormwater Pump Station

Since pumping “first flush” water is only required a few days out of the year, Romtec Utilities can engineer a standard stormwater pump station capable of handling occasional “first flush” conditions. Providing both functions in a single system is a great way to reduce cost for your stormwater management system.

Get Pump Station Notifications Delivered to Your Phone

When a “first flush” event occurs, your pump station is able to provide text messages (or calls and emails) with custom alerts. Our electrical engineers customize your control panel telemetry so that you can monitor your system in the way that helps you out the most.

Complete As-Built Drawings with O&M Documentation

After your system is completed, commissioned, and tested, Romtec Utilities provides on-site training with O&M documentation for your system. We also supply as-built drawings for your records to ease the future planning with your “first flush” pumping system.

Getting a First Flush Pumping Station


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.


Pump System Production

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.


Placing the Wet Wells

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.


High Voltage Electrical System for Pumps

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.
