Gravity Collection System

In a gravity collection system, the collection lines are sloped to permit the flow to move through the system with as little pumping as possible. The slope of the lines must keep the wastewater moving at a velocity

(speed) of 2 to 4 feet per second; otherwise, at lower velocities, solids will settle out, causing clogged lines, overflows, and offensive odors. To keep collection system lines at a reasonable depth, wastewater must be lifted (pumped) periodically so it can continue flowing "downhill" to the treatment plant. Pumping stations are installed at selected points within the system for this purpose.
