Wastewater Glossary of Terms

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:

  1. located at the old Riverside plant that collects most of Hailey except Woodside and parts of Deerfield.
  2. 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.
