Woodburn Development LLC, with ICON Construction and Development, Emerio Design, and Canby Excavations were in need of a wastewater lift station for a new development. The Romtec supplied waste water wet well is a precast 10’ inner diameter (ID) well that is 36’ in depth.
Romtec Utilities worked with SPWSD on a similar project to develop a new submersible lift station design standard that changed from its previous wet/dry configuration pump systems.
After the historic Bay Meadows racetrack closed down, a large residential development began that required this large wastewater lift station. A triplex configuration of 30 hp Flygt pumps handles the high flow rates of this system. A blower system was provided as part of the lift station odor control specified by the City. The lift station electrical controls comprised a PLC, float control level-sensors, and a backup generator. The panel includes an Arc Armor® enclosure that provides safe access to low-voltage controls and separate access for high-voltage circuits.
This package lift station was designed to meet the medium wastewater flows of this California prison. Solids-handling pumps in a duplex configuration are protected from cascading influent by a drop bowl. The liquid level-sensing is controlled by a pressure transducer and a float in used for emergency backup. A below-grade valve assembly holds the system’s valves, flow meters, and pressure gauges. An outdoor PLC panel with a basic alarm and an added input for a radio modem comprise the systems controls.
This medium flow sewage lift station was designed for a new development to meet the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District lift station design standards. These standards specify a PLC controller with touchscreen HMI, SCADA options, a precast concrete valve vault, wet well, meter vault, and duplex submersible pumps. In addition to these design standards, this lift station needed to tie-in to an existing force main owned by the District. Romtec Utilities provided the tie-in force main designs and calculations as well as VFDs (variable frequency drives) to match the changing flow and pressure conditions of the existing force main.
