Giving more lift to a lift station

As part of the ongoing combined sewer overflow (CSO) program in North Vernon, Ind., the surcharging of one lift station was solved by using long, parallel runs of large-diameter pipe instead of replacing or enlarging the lift station.

In 2007, North Vernon, located on the Muscatatuck River in the southeast corner of the state and just north of the junction of Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, embarked on a multi-phase, CSO Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) that would be implemented during the next 10 years.
