Prisons & Detention Centers

Pump Stations Designed for High Solids & Difficult Water

Romtec is Experienced at Developing Pumping Systems for Prisons

Prisons and detention centers can have sewer that is difficult to handle. Romtec Utilities is experienced at engineering systems for these conditions. We provide the correct components, training, and support to help our lift stations at these locations operate successfully for their entire system lifespan.

Get Wastewater Accessory Options for Robust System Capabilities

Macerating pumps, grinder vaults, odor control systems, and other accessory options can improve the long-term management of your lift station at a prison or detention center. We are able to integrate all types of accessory options to provide a robust pumping system for your facility.

Aspects of Your System Are Prefabricated for Faster Installation On-Site

Romtec Utilities produces pumping systems through staged assemblies that include lots of prefabrication work. Prefabrication allows the system to be installed quickly as each stage arrives, minimizing the time crews are working at your facility.

Romtec Can Retrofit or Replace a Failing Pumping System

Prisons and detention centers can be hard on pumping systems. Romtec Utilities can save your facility money by retrofitting or replacing a failing system. Your new system will include durable and modern components that are designed to function in difficult environments.
