Pump stations play an important role in transporting large volumes of liquid from one point to another, so it is vital that they work as efficiently as possible at all times.

What is a sewage pumping station?

In simple terms, a sewage pumping station moves sewage from one place to another. A large tank, known as a wet well, acts as the container for sewage from either a single building or a group of buildings.

Sewage from individual houses flows into the wet well. The sewage stays in the well until it reaches a certain level. Once it reaches this level, a pump will kick in to pump the waste out of the wet well, either to a point where it enters the main sewer, or that it can then travel into the main sewer using gravity.

The pumping station may be referred to as a lift station if the pump purely sends the liquid into a nearby manhole.
