Carey Lake Sewer Collection and Treatment System | WWD Weekly Collection


As the septic systems broke down and the water quality of Carey Lake declined, a new sewer solution was needed. The construction of a lift station and a conventional treatment plant would remove not only the financial constraints of the community, but also the community space. Armed with the knowledge of low-pressure sewage systems, he took conventional methods out of the equation.

Learn from Matt Crawford about the Lake Carey community and the reasons for the project. Adam Schantz, Northeast Territory Manager for Franklin Electric, shares the size and scale of the project; while Jessie Hinther, central regional manager of Franklin Electric’s industrial team, explained some of the key challenges. Kyle Johnson, product manager for Franklin Electric’s electrical sewer product line, notes the production challenges of building more than 300 pumps for the project. And finally, Andy Freberg, Business Applications Engineer for Franklin Electric, describes how a low pressure sewage system works and why Lake Carey was an ideal candidate for such a system.
