Lift stations are responsible for lifting and pumping waste through sewer gravity mains to help facilitate the contents reaching a specific destination, such as a wastewater treatment plant. Neglecting to perform routine maintenance and inspections on lift stations could result in severe deterioration of a community’s sewer infrastructure, costly repairs, and displays poor social responsibility. Utility Cloud provides an intuitive solution for maintaining a community’s lift stations through providing innovative asset and operations management tools, as well as ensures communities are meeting state and federal compliance regulations.
Failure to perform regular lift station inspections can result in sewer system overflows (SSOs), deterioration of a sewer system, and can have negative impacts to a community’s health.
Preserving sewer systems and providing customers with a safe environment is a primary goal of the wastewater industry. Routine inspections and cleanings assist with taking a proactive approach to identifying issues within the system, and resolving them before they develop into costly repairs, or create health-related issues for the community. Successfully maintaining a sewer systems infrastructure, maximizing the longevity of the asset and protecting public health requires a coordinated program that requires the asset to be inspected daily, weekly, monthly and/or quarterly. Managing your lift station inspections using a cloud-based operations management system will save you and your staff time and money, eliminate management headaches, and ensure you meet best management practices. Maintaining readily available records of these inspections allows management to complete short term and long term planning for the sewer system. It also ensures efficiency in meeting all necessary government requirements.
