Northstar Sewage Pump Station
Delaware County, OH
EMH&T provided construction administration and full time resident project representation for this pump station that serves over 1,000 residential dwellings, a golf course, and attending commercial area. The pump station included provisions for three pumps (two to be installed initially), a sewage grinder, wet well mixer, flow meter, odor control, and standing generator. Ultimately, the facility will have a rated capacity of 2,400 gallons per minute. A large majority of the pump station structure is below grade, unseen by the public. This "basement" is comprised of reinforced concrete walls nearly forty feet tall, varying in thickness to two feet. Above grade, the exterior portion of the pump station was designed to match the theme of the golf course club house, while the interior contains a built-in crane to facilitate pump maintenance.
