Lift Station Problems and Issues Defined

The Water Environment Foundation (WEF) published a report regarding the “Municipal Wastewater Pump Station Design Problems and Solutions.” 

The DIP System® makes it possible to design durable and economical pumping stations.
The DIP System® makes it possible to design durable and economical pumping stations.

Lift station problems and design issues defined include:

  1. Concrete corrosion protection
  2. Corrosion resistant materials
  3. Pump protection from influent sewage debris
  4. Pump selection based on total dynamic head calculations
  5. Energy efficient operation
  6. Pump station appearance
  7. Surge protection
  8. Rehabilitation of existing pump stations
  9. Odor control
  10. Prevention of leakage into the pump station structures
  11. Provisions for future expansion
  12. Grit deposition in wet wells sized for future flow rates

 

The report concludes that planning and design of new municipal wastewater pump stations or rehabilitation/expansion of existing pump stations requires careful consideration of potential problems and possible solutions presented in the report.
