What is a sewage pumping station?
The sewage system’s function
A sewage system is made up of a network of different-sized pipes that carry surface and foul water sewage away from homes and businesses to the main sewers. Ordinarily, the network of pipes relies on gravity for the waste to flow into the main sewer.
However, in low-lying areas where the main sewer sits on higher ground levels than the domestic sewage pipes, the sewage needs to be transported to the main sewer in a different way. This is where sewage pumping stations come in.
