A Package Pump Station

Where foul drainage from a building is to be pumped, the effluent receiving chamber should be sized to contain 24 hour inflow to allow for disruption in service. The minimum daily discharge of foul drainage should be taken as 150 litres per head per day for domestic use. For other types of building, the capacity of the receiving chamber should be based on the calculated daily demand of the water intake for the building. Where only a proportion of the foul sewage is to be pumped, then the capacity should be based pro-rata.

In all pumped systems the controls should be so arranged to optimise pump operation. The required 150 litres per head per day volume should reflect the storage volume in the station pump  or station and overflow tanks.
