All About Sewage Lift Stations and Pump Station Designs

When it comes to topics of conversation, sewage lift stations and pump station designs are not exactly go-to subjects. However, without these Southern Associates’ products, life and the world around us, would not be quite as pleasant.

Southern Associates has been designing, building and installing these lift stations in the state osewage lift stations and pump station designsf Georgia for over 13 years. Southern Associates was incorporated in 2003 by Steven Dalton. Dalton is the president of the company and continues to serve as a Pump Station Design Engineer, Sewer Pump Station Service Engineer and a Licensed Utility Manager. Southern Associates has installed sewer pump stations and water booster stations throughout metro-Atlanta.

What is a sewage lift station?

According to Wikipedia, a sewage lift stations, or pumping stations, are “facilities including pumps and equipment for pumping fluids from one place to another. They are used for a variety of infrastructure systems, such as the supply of water to canals, the drainage of low-lying land, and the removal of sewage to processing sites. A pumping station is, by definition, an integral part of a pumped-storage hydroelectricity installation.” So basically, lift stations help sewage fight gravity by pumping the contents up and through the network of pipes in order to get to a treatment facility to be treated and processed.

Are all SEWAGE pumps the same?

Not all lift pumps are created equal. In the design of pump stations and the installation of sewage lift stations, the type of structure, residential or commercial, has to be considered. We’ve not only installed stations for apartment complexes and home residents, but also commercial property managers, restaurants, and churches. Because some of these are owned and operated by private entities, such as homeowner’s associations, we also provide preventative maintenance service contracts for sewer pump stations.

Here are just a few types of Southern Associates pump stations and their uses:

  1. Submersible Non-Clog
  2. Submersible Grinder
  3. Wet-well Mounted (Vacuum or Self-primed)
  4. Factory-built Dry Pit station with separate wet well
  5. Wet Pit / Dry Pit Station
