Clark County Water Reclamation District – Wastewater & H2S Capable Lift Station
Romtec Utilities designed and supplied a wastewater lift station for a housing development in Las Vegas, Nevada. The lift station handles wastewater from multiple family residences in the area. Light flows of wastewater are pumped through this system with 5 hp KSB pumps installed in a duplex configuration. The warm climate of the American Southwest required that the system design include corrosion resistant components. The wet well of the pump station was fabricated with polymer concrete that is very resistant to corrosive substances like H2S gas. A liquid phase odor control system and a gas phase odor control system were also installed to further manage septic conditions of this application. Electrical controls for the lift station were installed inside a control building. A disconnect panel is used to connect in-well electrical components with controls to allow personnel to quickly and safely perform maintenance on the system.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Romtec Utilities designed and supplied a wastewater lift station for a housing development in Las Vegas, Nevada. Romtec Utilities worked with the developer, Summit Club Nevada, and the local water authority, Clark County Water Reclamation District (CCWRD), to design the system according to their design requirements. The warm temperatures of area required a robust system design that would not break down from H2S corrosion. This meant using stainless steel piping, a polymer concrete wet well, and two odor control systems on the system. Another requirement of this project called for a low-profile design with many of the visible features of the system to be concealed and installed inside a control building. The site engineer, Slater Hanifan Group, supplied Romtec Utilities with the complete design data to engineer the lift station according to the requirements of the site. The developer handled the installation of the system with a Romtec Utilities advisor onsite. Romtec Utilities sent a field technician to Las Vegas to commission the system and provide testing and training services for the operating personnel at CCWRD.
