Sewers and Pump Stations

Pump station equipment

Fuss & O’Neill assists municipalities and community organizations extend the useful life of their systems or create new infrastructure to empower development and improve public health.

Fuss & O’Neill’s water and wastewater engineers design sewers (gravity, low-pressure, and force main) for open cut and trenchless construction, pump stations (submersible, wet pit/dry pit, axial flow, and suction lift), and associated systems and amenities. We utilize cost-savings approaches (e.g., infiltration/inflow concentration ranking, chemical flow dilution isolation flow measurements, and balancing storage and pump capacity) to save our clients time, energy, and budget.

We have extensive experience with the design and rehabilitation of stormwater and flood control pumping stations. Our pump station designs can be customized to blend into the existing built environment to maintain a community’s identity.

As a multidisciplinary firm, we have staff who perform reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) evaluations of pumping systems, including thermographic imaging, ultrasonic bearing tests, oil viscosity testing, megger testing of equipment, and arc flash training.

We develop high quality, effective designs that minimize operational, maintenance, and construction costs.
