11 Residential Sewage Lift Station
Pumps about 50,000 gallons of sewage daily
All sewage must flow through the collection system pipes to the wastewater treatment plant by gravity flow. If a neighborhood is located at a lower elevation than the nearest collection system connection, the sewage must be pumped up hill to the nearest sanitary sewer manhole. Sanitary sewer lift stations pump sewage "uphill" to the collection system 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
