London Mills Lift Station
London Mills, IL
Klingner & Associates was hired to complete services including the replacement of existing wastewater pumps and controls and the addition of a generator with automatic transfer switch. Bypass pumping was provided as necessary to handle incoming wastewater flows to the lift station.
The project consisted of design and construction of a new sewage pumping system. The construction replaced the obsolete pumps and controls with two (2) identical redundant pumps and a new pumping system control panel. In addition, a backup electric generator was constructed to operate the pumping station in case of power failure, in accordance with current Illinois EPA regulations. Finally, a cellular telephone based telemetry system was installed to provide prompt notification of pumping station problems and thereby reduce the chance of sewage backups and overflows.
Images shown are nearing project completion.
