In larger commercial developments, there is often the requirement for one or more pump stations when liquid is unable to be discharged under gravity. These devices act as a holding chamber to collect stormwater, sewage or another wastewater. The pump stations then transport the waste for reuse or disposal by utilising transfer pumps.
Global Water recently commissioned a sewer pump station for SA Water near the RAAF base at Edinburgh, north of Adelaide. Previous firefighting practises saw PFAS enter the underground aquafer and subsequently contaminate the ground water.
