PF Plumbing Utilities and Land Development Division is responsible for installing a large number of different types of underground utility lines. However, one of the most common types of utility line installation projects we do is water main and sewer main installation.
Adding these pipelines sends water to the houses and buildings and also provides fire protection to hydrants, allowing for continued growth and development. There are many little details that go into getting water and waste water from one location to another. Have you ever considered how the water that goes down the drain in your home finds its way to the wastewater treatment plant? In ideal situations, the water goes down the pipe and would run downhill to the wastewater treatment plant. However, there is not always enough differentiation in elevation between your home and the treatment plant to make this work.
This is why sanitary sewer lift stations exist. These sewer lines and lift stations collect water along the way and the pumps inside the lift station pick the water up and pump it, helping it in its journey to the treatment plant.
