Restoring Resiliency & Reliability to a Critical Lift Station (Source: Pumps & Systems)
By Frank Elliot (Clear Lake City Water Authority), Jeremy Nakashima, and Edward Streich (LAN)
As our existing infrastructure continues to age, increasing maintenance of critical facilities, such as wastewater lift stations, can stretch operating and maintenance (O&M) budgets and reduce overall reliability. Coupled with population growth and the development of urban areas, the demand to meet requirements for service reliability and more capacity in an efficient and sustainable way is becoming increasingly critical. That is the situation for the Clear Lake City Water Authority (CLCWA) and its wastewater collection and treatment facilities.
