Sanitary Pump Station

While with a previous firm, Mr. Schaffer assisted in the design of a sanitary pump station for a Northern New Jersey sports arena. The new Red Bull sports arena in Harrison New Jersey is a professional soccer and exhibition sports complex seating up to 25,000 people. The station features a triplex pump setup with a dry-pit valve chamber.

The proposed pump station’s design was driven by site constraints. The wet well was located in the sidewalk off-center from one main entrance to the complex, but also out from under a proposed low awning. The valve pit is located a short distance off the right-of-way and traffic bollards. The ejector line ducks under two existing utility lines before jumping over a large box culvert, then into a discharge manhole. The discharge manhole feeds to a drop-over manhole installed on an existing sanitary sewer line.
