Monolithic Precast Wet Well Bases

Monolithic Precast Wet Well Bases Beyond 8 Feet Monolithic Precast Wet Well Bases are the unsung heroes of wastewater infrastructure, providing the essential foundation for the proper management of sewage and wastewater. These structures often need to handle significant volumes, and their design and construction become increasingly complex when the internal diameter exceeds 8 feet. The term “monolithic” may suggest that the entire structure is poured in one continuous operation, but this isn’t always the case. Typically, monolithic precast wet well bases consist of two key …

Package Pump Systems

Romtec Utilities uses precast concrete because it requires smaller installation crews, is more time-efficient, and can be fully tested.
