Go with the Flow – Using Standby Pumping in Environmentally-Sensitive Areas
Abstract:For decades, surface-mounted, diesel-driven trash pumps have been the staple of sewer bypass applications. Design features such as automatic priming, automatic controls, and indefinite dry running have brought simplicity and reliability to the temporary pumping market. These same characteristics lend themselves to permanent standby pumping solutions.
In response to an in-kind benefit project solution resulting from a Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) agreement, Pasco County (FL) Utilities Services Branch elected to take advantage of standby pumping to mitigate the possibility of future sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) at environmentally-sensitive locations throughout the County.
