Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
The City of Laguna Beach replaced an existing wastewater lift station under very unique circumstances. The existing lift station –and the plot for the new lift station- were located in the sand of Main Beach, just 100 feet from the Pacific Ocean. Romtec Utilities worked with Dudek and Associates (Civil E.) to design a wastewater lift station package with a large dry pit and two HDPE wet wells. This configuration was chosen to accommodate the size of the pumps required and the City’s standards for accessing confined spaces. The specific site requirements added cost to the system, but Romtec Utilities and Dudek and Associates ensured that this lift station would withstand constant exposure to salt water for an extended life-cycle and meet the City’s standards.
