Battleground School District – Septic System Replacement Lift Station
When a public high school decommissioned an existing septic system, a replacement package lift station was needed to handle the sewage from the campus. Tsurumi submersible cutter pumps were used to pass most solids and cut larger solids into passable sizes (about 1¼” diameter). The pumps also meet the low flow low head requirements for the new 3” PVC force main. The manhole and below grade valve vault are traffic rated. The outdoor control panel was mounted on the existing support structure for the decommissioned septic.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
The Battle Ground School District and Olson Engineering contacted Romtec Utilities with a common project. Prairie High School outgrew its septic system and needed a package wastewater lift station to pump into the local municipal wastewater system. Romtec Utilities provided preliminary designs to be used in the request for bids and provided pricing to all the bidders. AES was awarded the project by including the Romtec Utilities pricing. The entire project was able to be completed between May and August of 2010 and did not interfere with the normal academic calendar. Romtec Utilities met requirements for price and facilitated speed that is not typical for a project of this type.
