Tolland Highway Garage Expansion Pumping Station

    Gardner & Peterson Associates, LLC

  • EP’s Role


To provide wastewater pumping services for a proposed expansion of the existing Department of Public Works facility, as well as service to approximately 50 homes, the Town of Tolland wanted to construct a new pumping station.

Environmental Partners (EP) was retained by Gardner & Peterson Associates, LLC in the spring of 2017 on behalf of the Town to complete the final design of a wastewater pumping station for the proposed improvements at the Town of Tolland’s Highway Garage.

The design included reviewing various alternatives for ensuring the force main does not siphon, as the selected pumping station site faces the challenge of being located above the discharge elevation. The design also included submersible grinder pumps in a precast wet well, precast valve vault, and precast flow meter vault.
