Sewage pumpstations:

The Town owns and operates five sewage pumpstations. Each station contains two sewage pumps, but in addition, all stations (except Robert St. West) have an additional pump on the shelf for contingency measures and/or immediate parts source.

  1. Bellisle station (Thompsons's Road) services Bellisle Heights and pumps up to Main St. and flows gravity to Main STP.

  2. Beck Blvd station (Sullivan Park) services 64 homes, pumps flows to Main STP

  3. Jennings Drive station pumps to Edward and flows gravity to Main STP.

  4. Robert St. West station services about 16 homes and pumps to Main STP.

  5. Navy Lane station services Discovery Harbour and Navy lane residents, pumps to top of Navy lane and flows gravity to Fox STP.

New level control systems for all the stations were installed (pressure transducers) and linked to the SCADA system. The old level control floats were kept as a back-up. The SCADA system has allowed for improved available pertinent information and now provides monthly and annual reports. Online amperage meters were installed in each station panel. Lockout devices were installed on all station panels in regard to health and safety. There have been minor electrical upgrades to the panels as well.
