Water conservation and sustainable waste management have become serious concerns in the modern world. Pump stations play a critical role in the removal of sewage, drainage of low-lying land and water distribution systems. These pump stations help communities in many ways.
Transport of water
In water distribution systems, pump stations help to deliver fresh drinking water into homes. Treated water is pumped into vertical storage tanks and gravity fed to homes and businesses.
Increased water pressure
Water pressure can be poor in areas that have grown rapidly or have outdated infrastructure. Booster pump stations can be used to increase water pressure which makes life more enjoyable and helps appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines function better.
Collection and storage
There are situations where either fresh water or sewage will need to be collected and stored for use in the future. With pump stations, communities can not only collect and store these fluids but will also be able to let them flow when the need arises.
Reduced health risks
Sewage that is not properly managed can give off toxic gases and pose serious health risks. With pumping stations in sewage collection systems, raw sewage will flow smoothly over a significant distance. The stations ensure that sewage is managed in such a way that the related health risks are minimized.
Lower flood risks
Water that collects in low lying areas can lead to floods if the water levels rise. Pump stations can collect this water and direct it to the intended areas and in this way prevent damage and loss of lives.
Even with well-maintained pump stations, it is important for members of the community to have proper equipment to handle different fluids.
