Upgraded Pumping System Eliminates Clogging

The pumps that operated at the septage receiving wetwell at the Valley Forge Sewer Authority’s collection system in Phoenixville, PA were constantly clogging.

This created frequent headaches for the operators, and cost valuable time and expense for unscheduled maintenance. Unscheduled downtime created delays in unloading for the septage trucks, and interrupted the normal plant operations as trucks were delayed, or unable, to off-load.

The Valley Forge Sewer Authority (VFSA) is a utility that is owned by its customers, and was incorporated as an operating Authority in 1968. VFSA owns and operates 90 miles of sewer pipelines, nine pump stations and a regional treatment plant rated for 10 million gallons per day (gpd), and treats an average of 8 million gpd. VFSA serves approximately 22,000 customers.
