PUMP STATION MONITORING RESOURCES
Revolutionizing Pumping Station Control
Sulzer-led award-winning project improves performance and control of sewage pumping stations.
Prison Facility Eliminates Frequent Submersible Pump Clogs With New Above-Grade Approach
Prison sewage often contains extra trash, towels, and rags that enter the sewerage network and cause pump clogging problems. When a correctional facility underwent a capacity expansion, changes to its problematic submersible sewage pumping station coincided, resulting in a new operator-safe approach to combatting the ills of prison sewage pump clogs.
After 30 Attempts To Cut Through The FOG, the Wet Well Wizard Makes Major Improvements
The Memorial Park Pump Station (MPPS) transfers wastewater flows from Memorial Park to Chapel Street WWTP and/or Te Maunga WWTP. It is a large pump station (PS) installed within a 9.0m diameter concrete structure. The pump station is approximately 12m deep, with a 6.5m maximum water depth and split into several compartments.
Challenging Turnkey Installation Of Five Raw Water Pumps
For one city in Texas, accessing a new source of water required considerable expertise in pumping technology. The pumping station was to be located 320 feet (98 meters) above the 9 ft (2.7 meter) tunnel that carries the water from the intake system in the lake. The water had to travel almost a mile (1.6 km) uphill to the water treatment plant, so a considerable amount of civil engineering was required. Read the full case study to learn how the SJT large vertical pump was determined to be the most suitable pump for this project.
Above Ground Pumping Revolutionizes Texas School District’s Operations
For most small to medium-sized operations groups like Klein Independent School District in the suburbs of Houston, the conventional choice of submersible wastewater pumps holds little wisdom. Above-ground pump stations reduce exposure to designated confined spaces, and associated safety requirements, allowing these groups to operate in a more convenient and cost-effective manner.
Successful Retrofit ‘By The Numbers’
JEA, formerly Jacksonsonville Electric Authority, ranks among the nation’s largest and most efficient community-owned electric, water and sewer utilities.
Significant Upgrades Enable City Of Atherton To Meet State’s DNR Discharge Requirements
Built in the 1980s, Little Blue Valley Sewer District operates Atherton, which was designed to reduce the primary process chain to preliminary bar screening and aerated grit removal, while relying solely on secondary treatment performed in four, standalone 42-ft by 400-ft aeration/clarification basins.
Wastewater Utility Gains Clog-Resistant Lift Stations With Prefabricated Fiberglass Units
The city of Haverhill, MA, a community of 68,000, shares much in common with the sewage infrastructure of other long-established New England municipalities.
New Generation Pump Clears Clogs At City’s Lift Station
The scenic community of Waupaca, Wisconsin derived its name from the translation of a Native American term meaning “clear water”.
Advanced Technologies Stop Plant Bypasses
The collection system in Thief River Falls, Minnesota serves 8,500 residents.
