The City of Olathe, Kansas currently has twenty-one lift stations in service with one in the design phase. These stations help serve over 100,000 customers with sanitary sewer service. Olathe has been using a combination of site placed standby generators, portable generators, and portable standby pumps to provide backup power and/or pumping capacity at the sanitary lift stations for many years.
