Recent technological advances are now letting small municipalities enjoy the same sophisticated pump monitoring and control capabilities as their larger urban counterparts.

A case in point is Prestonsburg, Kentucky, with a population of about 3,300. The city had experienced longstanding problems with a critical lift station, which placed heavy demands on maintenance crews and caused failures and discharges. WASCON Inc. suggested they upgrade the lift station with intelligent, demand-based pump technology, and chose the SL1 pump from Grundfos.
