U.S. Water recently completed infrastructure improvements to Lift Station 82, the central lift station in the Island Walk development in North Port, Florida. The project consisted of converting the existing triplex station to a duplex station, which will save energy costs with two 60 horsepower pumps. The station has been rehabilitated with new piping, a new base, new pumps, and a new panel, as there was excessive corrosion of the existing pipes, and they are near the end of their service life.
Lift station 82 is a part of the large North Port Lift Station rehabilitation project consisting of eight total lift station rehabilitation projects. The team pulled in extra resources from region four, the Highlands County area, to ensure the rehabilitation was completed to the best of our abilities. The lift station is an integral part of the municipal sanitary sewer system, transferring waste to the City’s wastewater facilities.
