Design of new sanitary sewer pump station and force main along Railroad and Dayton Streets.

The sanitary sewer pump station and force main design included approximately 565 linear feet of 6” force main The purpose of the pump station is to intercept the flow currently collected and direct it to the sewer main. Downstream the flow currently passes under French Creek by means of a siphon box. The proposed project will eliminate the need to continue the use of the siphon box main. The siphon will be retained to act as an emergency overflow option for the pump station. A manual check valve was installed on the emergency overflow pipe adjacent to the wet well.
