Municipal Pumps

Municipal wastewater pumping can take many forms depending on if the facility relies on gravity flow or pumping equipment to act as an intermediary. Such systems are typically called sewage lift stations or just lift stations. It also depends on where the wastewater is coming from such as household toilets/sewer system, stormwater drains or commercial wastewater.


Some wastewater treatment facilities have intake pumping stations to transfer the raw wastewater and pump it through grinders or screens. In warm and cold climates the pumping equipment requirements may be different. For example in colder climates spring run-off can include grit from salt or sand and the pumps you select will have to have materials of construction that are designed to pump through these conditions with minimal wear to components.


The modern reality of municipal wastewater pumping is the presence of organic solids, sanitary wipes, plastics and other objects. This requires a municipal wastewater treatment operator and local consulting engineers to think seriously about the pumping equipment being installed. Wastecorp offers several non-clog pump products to pump tough media with minimal annual maintenance requirements.

Case Studies

The District Municipality Of Muskoka

The District towns of Muskoka required a higher volume water trailer as a source for watering trees, new landscaping as well as dust control on rural roads. Wastecorp recommended, designed and manufactured our Wastecorp WT-1600 Series water wagon which includes a severe duty triple axle stability system and electric brakes.

Municipal Trash Pumps

Wastecorp was awarded the contract to provide four Trash Flow model TFCC-3B self priming trash pumps to Wendover WPCP. These pumps have a 3” connection and several add-on options to fulfill the facility requirements. The pumps were also manufactured with tungsten carbide mechanical seals for extended wear life and oil lubricated ball bearings. Ashcroft pressure gauge kits were included on each pump to monitor pressure and provide the operator with performance data.

Municipal Sewage Pump Improvement Project

Winter in northern climates brings a host of challenges for municipal sewage pumping. With heavy rain and snowfall, America sewage treatment plants must pump through a cycle of runoff and grit in addition to pumping raw activated sludge from December through April every year. Only the toughest sludge pumps can provide a long life cycle and reduced component wear through these design conditions.
