The East Wastewater Collection Division maintains 129 Lift Stations including the Master Pump Station and Booster Pump Station, as well as supports the collection and transmission lines that transport sewage to the Wastewater Reclamation Facility.
Lift stations are below grade facilities designed with pumps and piping, equipment control, alarm, odor control, and a ventilation system, which are located throughout the City, and used to collect and transport wastewater from the customer’s location to the Wastewater Reclamation Facility.
Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition
Remotely monitored by the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), this system allows the identification of equipment and operational problems, in an effort to timely implement, corrective measures and repairs, thereby preventing sewer overflows and back-ups.
Sewer Inspection & Maintenance Program
The sewer inspection and maintenance program endeavors to prevent groundwater and rain water from entering the sewer system, which if not controlled, will take up valuable system capacities.
