A section of sewer where wastewater flows from a higher
elevation to a lower elevation due to the force of gravity.
Wherever possible, wastewater collection systems are designed to
use gravity to convey wastewater to GBMSD for treatment.
Lift stations are used in a sewer system to lift (pump)
wastewater to a higher elevation when the route followed by a
gravity sewer becomes too deep. Lift stations vary in size and type
based on the volume of wastewater pumped and the height the
wastewater must be lifted.
This is a sewer that transports wastewater under pressure from a
lift station to a gravity sewer.
Here the wastewater is metered and sampled to calculate flows
and strengths so the contributing communities are billed
