Lift Stations Telemetry

St. John the Baptist Parish is trying to reduce the waste water overflows due to lift station failure.  The primary reasons for installing this technology in the lift stations is to alert Parish personnel of equipment malfunctions at the lift stations, enable the lift stations to operate more efficiently, thereby reducing power cost, and to prevent unsanitary waste water overflows during failures.

Approximately 50 lift stations will be included in this project (East and West Bank of St. John Parish).  The term “telemetry” is defined as the science and technology of automatic measurement and the transmission of data by wire, radio, or other means from remote sources to receiving stations for recording and analysis.
