Underground Detention

Pump Stations that Handle Stormwater from Underground Detention

We Integrate Pumping Systems with Any Stormwater Detention System

From perforated filtering units to concrete vaults, Romtec Utilities will design your stormwater pump station to integrate with all types of underground detention technologies. Your pump station will reliably handle stormwater whether it is pumping to a municipal or on-site treatment system or to discharge.

Meet Your Budget with Our Stormwater Pump Station Configurations

Pump stations that handle stormwater have more design flexibility that sewer systems. Romtec Utilities will make sure pumping from your underground detention system will utilize an economical and effective design. Romtec engineers employ many strategies to get your stormwater pump station engineered to meet your budget.

Get Engineering Expertise for Stormwater Detention/Retention Pumping

Romtec can pump to or from underground detention systems with expert pump station designs that will function to meet your needs on your specific site. Our experience will help you get a long-term pump station solution for stormwater management and for your in-ground detention system.

Romtec Pump Stations Will Operate at the Pumping Rates that Meet Your Needs

Your detention structures may be designed to fill and empty at a specific rate. Your detention system might also need to pump to “keep up” with major storm events. Romtec Utilities will design your stormwater pump station to function perfectly with your detention structures and anticipated stormwater events.

Project Support

With Romtec Utilities you gain the support of our dedicated project management team at every step-from planning through installation. Romtec Utilities covers a vast scope of services that help execute the design, supply, construction, testing, and training of your pump system to ensure its success at the site location.



Romtec Utilities provides a high level of system prefabrication prior to delivery of the system to the jobsite. This greatly reduces construction cost and installation time, as well as potential project delays and change orders. This high level of prefabrication can often reduce installation time from weeks to days. Additionally, Romtec Utilities takes pride in our quality control processes, ensuring that when the system is delivered to the job site everything will function as designed.



Romtec Utilities ensures the quality and success of every pumping system from the early stages of design, all the way through installation and construction. Romtec Utilities will send experienced installation advisors to the site who will advise the installing contractor throughout the installation process providing all parties with the reassurance that the station is constructed and ultimately functioning as designed.



Romtec Utilities’ startup, testing, and training services are essential to the success of any pumping system. Following installation our technicians are on-site working directly with all parties to field check the control panel, operate the pumps, perform system testing, and provide world class training to all maintenance personnel.



With Romtec Utilities, every complete pump station is covered with a standard one-year warranty. Romtec Utilities also provides ongoing support from our entire team throughout the lifetime of our products. This support is provided to ensure that every pump and lift station project is successful.
