Flood Control

Flood Control Management Systems & Integrated Pump Stations

Pumps & Engineering for Very-High Flow Flood Control Systems

Romtec Utilities engineers pumping systems for stormwater management and flood control, utilizing axial flow pumps, vertical turbine pumps, and other pump technologies capable of handling very-high flow rates. These pumps and other engineering features are great for flood control systems.

Get a System Engineered to Handle Events like the 100-Year Flood

Your system will be engineered for flood control to meet all types of stormwater events. Whether it’s the 100-year flood or typical seasonal flooding, Romtec Utilities engineers systems to “ramp up” as the water rises. These systems can even be engineered to shut off if the flooding is unmanageable.

We Have Budget-Friendly Configurations for Stormwater Management Solutions

Stormwater pump station designs are typically more flexible than for sewer. Using parallel force mains, jockey pumps, and limited redundancy can all reduce the complete system cost. Romtec Utilities will make sure your flood control system will have an economical and functional design.

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 flood control system. Since flood control pumping is not required every year, we also supply as-built drawings for your records to assist with long-term system management.

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.


Project Support

With Romtec Utilities you gain the support of our dedicated project management team at every step – from planning through installation. Romtec Utilities covers a vast scope of services that help execute the design, supply, construction, testing, and training of your pump system to ensure its success at the site location.



Romtec Utilities provides a high level of system prefabrication prior to delivery of the system to the jobsite. This greatly reduces construction costs 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 all parties to field check the control panel, operate the pumps, perform system testing, and provide world class training to all maintenance personnel.



With Romtec Utilities, every complete pumping system is covered with a standard one-year warranty. Romtec Utilities also provides ongoing support from our entire team throughout the lifetime of our products. This support is provided to ensure that every pump and lift station project is successful.
