Pre-Engineered Lift Stations Deliver Fix For Aging Pumps At Private Sewer Utility

Undersized original construction and gradual equipment deterioration led to recurring pump station failures and overflows for the Valley Rural Utilities Company’s wastewater collection system in Lawrenceville, Indiana. Pre-engineered, clog-resistant pump stations and a remote-monitoring SCADA system were brought in to replace the aging, clog-prone pumps and track infiltration and inflow (I/I) problems. Now, the utility’s system is remotely monitored and uses less than half the electricity of the old pumps.
