Romtec Utilities was contacted to design and supply a stormwater pump station as part of an improvement project at an industrial power switch station in Trenton, New Jersey. This is one of several locations where aging infrastructure is being replaced by the local electric company, Public Service Enterprise Group, or PSE&G.
The construction of a new Home Depot required a large detention pond and a new pump station to handle stormwater from the commercial development. This economical pump station uses 7.5hp Ebara pumps in a duplex configuration to meet the required flow rates to empty the detention pond. Parallel force mains were included with valve cans to provide simple and inexpensive piping and control valves. This submersible system uses cost-effective precast concrete barrels and a monolithic base to construct strong and reliable sump.
The Union Pacific Depot in Cheyenne, Wyoming needed two new stormwater pump stations to replace existing systems. The first station used Ebara 25 hp submersible pumps in a triplex configuration to handle stormwater runoff from a parking lot and additional drains. The second station used Ebara 7.5 hp submersible pumps in a duplex configuration to pump stormwater that drains from the pit of a railway turntable. Both systems include precast concrete valve vaults. Each vault was preassembled with Val-Matic Cam-Centric® plug valves, Val-Matic Swing-Flex® check valves, and Ashcroft pressure gauges. Both stormwater systems discharge into an evaporation pond that was installed as a part of this larger water collection replacement, which also included three additional Romtec Utilities wastewater lift stations.
The newly constructed headquarters for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District purchased this package lift station to meet its medium sewage flow requirements. Submersible solids-handling pumps in a duplex configuration were specified in a deep well because this facility represents one of the ten largest public utilities in the country.
