The village Sluis in the Netherlands is a very popular touristic attraction and therefore the municipality of Sluis cannot afford any blockages in the wastewater transportations. That is why they started a very intensive renovation of the system in 1998. There are over 70 pumping stations in Sluis, all equipped with two wastewater pumps. The renovation program aimed at replacing existing pumps and at further automating the pumping stations.
In areas with accommodations, such as camp sites and holiday parks, the wastewater has a great variety of pollutions since everything gets thrown into the sewer. The wastewater pumping stations need to be equipped with pumps that can handle a diversity of pollution efficiently and without disruptions.
