23-Foot Deep Lift Station Cleaned While in Operation

Tallahassee’s Summerbrooke lift station was due for scheduled maintenance, needing both FOGs on the surface and sand and grit on the bottom removed.  While this could have proved to be a challenging situation, the USST crew and equipment was able to restore capacity quickly and efficiently.

USST’s Field Supervisor, Paul Del Favero, arrived with a team prepared to remove debris from wet or dry conditions.  Our patented Combination equipment allows our crew to remove debris from water surface and structure bottom without additional equipment or repositioning.

“Our truck is uniquely equipped to solve lift station challenges,” says Denver Stutler, Jr., Co-founder and CEO of USST.  “Oftentimes, you don’t know what to expect, and our equipment has the ability to perform like a Swiss Army Knife in the field.”

USST utilizes downhole pumping (in submerged or normal flow) or vacuum (in dry or low flow) as required and is equipped to switch between the two methods in any circumstance, with minimal downtime.

The USST crew first removed the FOG layer off the top of Tallahassee’s Summerbrooke lift station with the vacuum, and utilized the downhole pump to remove all residual material off the bottom of the lift station while it remained in full operation.

The Combination extended reach boom provided the reach required during the job, preventing hazardous work conditions.  Almost 8-cubic yards was removed from the 23-foot deep wet well, and the job was completed safely, efficiently, and ahead of schedule.
