Wastewater Pump Stations: How Do They Work?

Wastewater pump stations play a vital role in the nation’s water supply.

Without these stations, we would not have enough water to continue to exist. We depend on the recycling of our wastewater supply to survive.

Wastewater pump stations move the water through a series of pipes and pump stations to the treatment plants to be cleaned and purified. At the treatment plant the water goes through a three step cleaning process. The first step is to remove the solids and oil from the water. The water is pumped into a tank and the solids sink to the bottom of the tank. The water then gets moved for the second step which is to remove all the biological matter. The water is then disinfected during the third step.

When the water completes the three step process and is clean and purified it is pumped back into the rivers, and various other bodies of water. Without these pump stations and treatment stations we would run out of our clean water supply.
