Drainage Opportunities with Lift Stations
No gravity outlet available? No problem. An effective drainage system can still be installed using a project specific lift station outlet delivered by Ag Drainage Inc.
Also known as pump stations, the structures provide the “lift” needed to get drained water from the elevation of the main tile up to the surface outlet. Large capacity lines are used to store water until it reaches a set level where the submersible pump starts pushing the water up a discharge pipe. Pumps are typically operated by an electric control panel installed near the structure.
Lift stations provide the opportunity to gain more grade on system laterals and better control of the water table.
