Pump Stations with Telemetry System

The West Bay Sanitary District owns and operates 11 pump stations located within the collection system that are necessary to convey flow from low lying areas to higher elevations where the wastewater can again flow by gravity. The District’s pump stations have redundant pumping equipment, standby generators, and telemetry that alert the pump station crew of emergencies. The District also has emergency standby generators and bypass pumps as part of its emergency response equipment.

The District monitors 11 raw sewage pumping stations, 35 Residential STEP, and 57 Grinder systems using “Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition” software. This allows the District to remotely access control to these stations and provide system status alarm via a paging system.
