STEP 2 – Lift Stations

Even Wastewater Needs a Lift from Time to Time

When you flush or shower you make wastewater. It flows to our wastewater plant to be cleaned. Most of our wastewater just flows downhill. Gravity moves it.

However, sometimes the wastewater needs help to keep flowing. In these areas we build “lift stations.” The stations lift the wastewater up, like an elevator lifts you up. The wastewater whooshes down, like you whoosh down a slide. We have 44 lift stations in town.
