How Duty Assist Pump Configurations are Boosting Efficiency and Cutting Costs

Pump stations are crucial components that help to pump and transport sewage, wastewater, and stormwater from low-lying areas to higher elevation areas where it can be treated and disposed of safely. However, maintaining pump stations' optimal performance is not an easy task. They can experience issues such as blockages, equipment failures, and power outages.

What to consider when designing a pump station

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.

Stormwater Management in Australia

Stormwater is the rainfall that runs off impervious or saturated surfaces in urban environments, such as roofs, roads and pavements, as well as green spaces. Where the environment is undeveloped, rainwater infiltrates soils, allowing for transpiration by vegetation and evaporation into the atmosphere. Where this natural occurrence cannot occur, stormwater runoff collects sediment and gross pollutants before entering the water way.

Effective at-source stormwater treatment solves environmental concerns

Without effective stormwater management or treatment, stormwater can cause problems on and off site through erosion and the transportation of nutrients, pollutants, litter and sediment into our waterways.
