One of the safest and most convenient places to store liquid waste is in underground storage tanks. However, extracting the waste from these tanks means having to lift the waste back up to ground level. This is the job of an appropriately-named lift station—extract waste from a tank and lift it to ground level for further processing. Over time, lift stations need to be cleaned and repaired to ensure they continue to run properly and serve your community.

How Our Lift Station Cleaning Works
Any downtime to a municipal lift station due to solids and debris buildup, float issues, pump clogs or failures can cause backups and disastrous overflows leading to discharges of septic, grease or stormwater into nearby homes or onto roads. The accumulation of grease and oil, in particular, can be the source of endless headaches and lead to costly repairs. Wind River Environmental provides expert municipal lift station cleaning and repair services on a planned or emergency basis.
A lift station cleaning always starts with a thorough inspection of all visible components and parts of a particular lift station. If there are any obvious signs of damage, then we know straight away that we need to repair certain issues before carrying out the cleaning service (or that we need to complete any repairs during the cleaning). Once the cleaning begins, we use hydraulic vacuuming services to remove the grime and grease out of your lift station. The waste is collected into our waste disposal trucks, allowing us to then conduct a more thorough cleaning of any parts that need further service. Sometimes pumps are in tight spaces, making them challenging and potentially dangerous to access. For these jobs, we pull in our specialized team members who are certified in confined and tight-space safety.

The best remedy for lift station efficiency is routine preventative maintenance. Wind River Environmental offers regular maintenance programs that deliver periodic lift station cleaning and maintenance. We inspect and pump out septic, grease, stormwater and any solids from the mat layer on top to the heavy rocks and debris at the bottom of the tank. With regular maintenance, you can avoid costly issues.
