SEWER SYSTEMS

General – Articles About Low Pressure Sewer Systems

  • The Secret Life of Pressure Sewers — The paper includes background of pressure sewer technology, applications that are commonplace with some example case studies, along with several little known applications that are presently "secrets" to the average practitioner. Small Drinking Water and Wastewater Systems Conference
  • Excerpt: Follow-Up of Pressure Sewer Systems in West Skane (Sweden) — Pressure sewer systems are becoming more common in the countryside
  • Successful Applications of Pressure Sewers and Grinder Pumps — Grinder pumps have been used successfully throughout Canada for almost 20 years. Canadian Environmental Protection magazine
  • A Mathematical Model for Estimating Sewer Costs — An easily applied spreadsheet model for estimating construction costs of sanitary sewers has been developed. The model is useful in comparing design approaches, including gravity and pressure alternatives. New England Water Environment Association Annual Conference
  • Low Pressure Sewer Systems: The Economic Advantage — Numerous low-pressure sewer (LPS) systems using semi-positive displacement grinder pumps have now been in operation for periods up to two decades. Economic advantages of pressure sewers in a wide variety of appropriate circumstances such as hilly, rocky and flat terrain were recognized decades ago. Hawaii Water Environment Association 19th Annual Conference
  • Pressure Sewers and Grinder Pumps — Despite their widespread application, there are situations where gravity sewers cannot be used, or may not be the best option. Environmental Science & Engineering
