Lift stations are used to transmit wastewater to a treatment facility. In residential areas, lift stations may be located in a central point to a subdivision or community. Lift stations are pits located at points in the wastewater system to collect the wastewater and usually have two submersible pumps. In order to use gravity to move the wastewater along, it must be continually elevated to provide height to generate the flow. Wastewater in the lift station is pumped out to a higher level, from where it can flow on to the next lift station or to the treatment facility. As excavation and trenching for sewer pipes can be costly, using lift stations (and gravity) saves a substantial amount of money.
