The heavily soiled, greasy wastewater from households and commercial enterprises flows into the sewage lifting station. The dirty water and floating debris contained therein are raised to a higher level with screw pumps and then flow into the treatment plant along a natural downward gradient. Level measurement in the inlet shaft controls the cost-effective use of the pumps.
