Pump Station Monitoring White Papers and Case Studies

  1. N-Pumps And Multismart Pump Station Controls Reduce Costs And Improve Efficiency In Missouri

    The Sni-A-Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) serves the nearby cities of Blue Springs and Grain Valley, MO. In 2013, the city of Blue Springs completed an expansion project to increase plant capacity and improve effluent discharge, allowing the Sni-A-Bar WWTP to meet more stringent environmental requirements mandated by the EPA and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR).

  2. Dissolved Air Flotation Technology Nearly Doubles Treatment Capacity

    Faced with a tight capital budget, a city in British Columbia required a new design for a water treatment plant capable of a maximum daily water production of 21 MPG during peak demand periods, with an ultimate demand of 29 MGD.

  3. N-Technology Impeller Pumps Eliminate FOG Buildup At Resort And Casino

    The successful addition of new restaurants and clubs at a resort and casino in Upstate NY brought with them a flow of fats, oil and grease (FOG), which gelled into a floating blanket atop the main station’s wet well, where the sewage flows converge from the network of smaller stations throughout the property boundaries.

  4. N-Pumps Resolve Clogging Problems, Reduce Energy Consumption

    In the past, a lift station operation in Ohio had to send crews out daily to unclog one or more pump stations in the county service area. Chronic blockages were attributed to pump design, byproduct grease from restaurants, and medical waste from assisted living and nursing homes along the lines.

  5. How To Get A One-Year Payback On Retrofit Chopper Pumps For Your Packaged Lift Station

    The Independence Hill Conservancy District's Taney Lift Station was having continuous problems with wipes, swiffers, and plastics deposited in the incoming lines, which then broke loose in storms and overwhelmed the old non-clog pumps.

  6. Flygt Mixers Clear Sediment And Save Man-Hours For San Antonio Utility

    For almost 50 years, CPS Energy of San Antonio has drawn water from the San Antonio River to recharge two man-made lakes that provide cooling water for their power plants.

  7. Quick-Response Maintenance Team Minimizes Cost And Impact Of Pump Outage

    When water makes contact with the electrical controls in a wastewater treatment plant the results can be costly, and the response can test a plant’s major service supplier.

  8. A Fairy Tale Ending At A Pump Station

    The Otay River Pump Station (ORPS) was upgraded in 2003, to feed effluent to the City of San Diego’s newly constructed South Bay Water Reclamation Plant. 

  9. Pump Station Bar Screen Solves City’s Unique Problem

    As representatives of a small community, the Mendocino City Community Services District administrators felt strongly that they needed to deliver terrific wastewater treatment value at the lowest cost for their taxpayers.

  10. Propeller-Style Submersible Pumps Provide Reliable Drainage And Flood Control In Low-Lying Hoboken

    Because of its low-lying location on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River, the city of Hoboken, NJ, has struggled for generations with flooding when extreme wet-weather events coincide with high tides.
