Project Overview

There are over 20 sewage pumping stations across the Buckingham Township Sewage Collection System, each providing a vital link in Township sewage transfer network.  Many of these stations have been in operation for over 30 years.  Phase 1 of the project address upgrading six pump stations with emergency generators to assure reliability in event of emergencies. Since the pump stations were initially built without flow meters and the Department of Environmental Protection changed the regulations to require a pump station to now have a flow meter installed on the discharge of the station they were incorporated into the project.

In order to curtail cost in the project the Township bought all the generator via Pennsylvania COSTARS.  COSTARS is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s cooperative purchasing program and serves as a conduit through which local public governments are able to leverage contracts established by DGS to cost effectively and efficiently identify suppliers with whom to do business.  One of the goals is to encourage, expand and facilitate the opportunities for Members to achieve procurement savings and best value through an interactive partnership with the Commonwealth.  Theses upgrades to the pump stations should extend the lifespan for another 20 years and is designed to handle the current and future needs of the area.
