The Southlands Sewage Lift Station is the major collection point for much of the new development in the south extremities of the City of Medicine Hat. Ultimately the lift station will serve a population of about 67,000 people. The lift station was designed to allow for growth requiring two pumps at start-up and four pumps at full development. The station consists of a wet well with submersible pumps, back-up power generator, and an automated control system connected to the City’s infrastructure SCADA system. The station discharges into the Southlands forcemains for transmission to the wastewater treatment plant.
