Project Description

Project Overview

Buckingham Township’s Pump Station 3 receives wastewater sewage from part of the Red Gate basin pumping to the Buckingham Village Wastewater Treatment Plant.   The original pump station was built in 1988 and was in poor condition requiring equipment upgrades.  In addition, a change in Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) regulations required the installation of a flow meter on the discharge of the station.
