how does a lift station work

Report as

A lift station is also called a pumping station in sewage collection systems.It works by pumping raw sewage from underground pits (or wet well) once it has reached a certain level. It works by using a pressurized pumping system which is called a sewer force main. The sewage then goes to a gravity manhole and the cycle is repeated until it reaches a level enough for it to go to a treatment plant. For more information, http://www.ask.com/wiki/Pumping_station
