Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Romtec Utilities was the lift station of choice by the City of Santa Barbara and its contractor, Tierra Contacting, Inc., because of Romtec Utilities’ expert design services for site-specific pump stations. Romtec Utilities worked with URS Corp, the project engineering firm, to include unique pump station design into a larger stormwater management project. Romtec Utilities designed and engineered this pump station to pump occasional stormwater flows into an existing sanitary sewer pressure main to prevent dry-season contaminated water from entering a nearby creek. URS and the City of Santa Barbara were satisfied with the Romtec Utilities design and approved the pump station design submittals. Romtec Utilities then worked with Tierra Contracting to provide the complete packaged pump station at a price that would keep the project in budget.
