A point in the sewer system where the wastewater needs to be pumped (lifted) to a higher elevation so that gravity can be used to bring the wastewater to the treatment plant. In Hailey there are 2 lift stations:
- located at the old Riverside plant that collects most of Hailey except Woodside and parts of Deerfield.
- located at the new plant and collects Woodside, parts of Deerfield and the Woodside Industrial area. Most of lift station 1 can be diverted here in case of emergency.
