University of Washington, Husky Stadium – Stadium Sewer Lift Station
The renovation of the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium required a new lift station to handle medium flows of wastewater. Robust, 10hp Vaughan Chopper pumps were used in a duplex configuration to macerate solids and to pump under unpredictable conditions. The lift station, valve vault, and the access hatches were designed as traffic rated to accommodate loading/unloading next to the main grandstand. The UL listed control panel starts, stops, and alternates each pump cycle at levels measured by Noltaniva float sensors.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
Romtec Utilities was contacted by Hos Brothers Construction, Inc. to provide a quote for a wastewater lift station for the Husky Stadium renovation. Romtec Utilities provided pricing for the lift station design from Magnusson Klemencic Associates. The general contractor, Turner Construction Company, and their sub, Hos Brothers Construction, requested Romtec Utilities to value-engineer the lift station. The goal was to have a robust lift station to handle the sewage flows while decreasing the cost of the original design. Romtec Utilities proposed Vaughan Chopper pumps as the best way to accomplish the goal. After many discussions and reviews, Magnusson Klemencic Associates, Turner Construction, and Hoss Brothers Construction approved the Romtec Utilities design as being equivalent to the original design specification with a lower cost.
