Lift Station

August 14, 2009



Lift stations are typically made of pumps, valves and metering equipment placed within a sump to move water or waste water from a low elevation to a high elevation.

Sewage and waste water systems typically use gravity to transport waste from homes and places of business to water treatment facilities. For areas with varying elevations, lift stations are common.
