Re: Construction of a Lift Station in a Sewage Easement
so is the tank out front of your home. Hopefully, if you are lucky, it will never overflow but I have worked on too many of them to think it will never happen. Because of that, think about where you would rather have a poop overflow: front yard or back yard.
mthomas;607616] You are full of crap!
I have been involved in the installation of such systems. I suspect landsurveyor has as well, at least in laying out the locations of the systems.
It would be fitting if you had anything to do with the design of these systems!
as trafeng states, there is regular maintenance involved with a lift station. Would you want the sewer workers in your back yard once a month or so?
sure, what could that cost? Are you willing to pay it? If not, I can promise you the city will not move the station.
We are talking relocation of two lift stations, a new run of 250' of 6" plastic pipe, and replacement of 250' of existing 4" plastic pipe with 6" plastic pipe (along the perpendicular drive).
Oh, you forgot the electrical as well
I am curious as to how they are supposed to get from the ROW where the lift station sets now to the easement behind your house. Is there a direct path from where the station is now to the back of your property that is already owned by the city or the city has an easement across?
