Pump Stations - A basic guide

pump stations 

 How do pump stations move our country’s water supply?

Pump stations are used in many different applications to transfer water from one area to another. Pump stations are used to supply fresh drinking water to your home, to supply farmers with irrigation, and to transfer sewage to treatment plants for processing.  Pump stations also have many industrial uses as well.  Here are two types of pump stations:

  • Irrigation Pump Stations: Irrigation pump stations are used to pump water from large bodies of water and deliver it to specific areas where it is needed. Farmers use pump stations to irrigate their crops and provide water for their animals. They are also used to remove flood waters from low lying areas.
  • Sewage Pump Stations: Sewage pump stations are used to move waste water from the community and transfer it to a treatment facility.  Once the waste water arrives at the treatment facility it is cleaned and purified and then routed back into the rivers and canals.
Pump stations play a vital role in the use and conservation of our most precious natural resource. For more information about pump stations contact the experts at W. P. Law, Inc.
