Case Study

Ipswich Pump Station and Sanitary
Sewer Ipswich, Massachusetts


Town of Ipswich Utilities Department


Meridian Associates was retained by the town to design an upgrade to an existing station that had exceeded its operating life. The new submersible duplex pump facility is designed for existing and projected sanitary flows totaling 158,000 GPD from the High Street area. A design for the construction of a gravity sewer from the Ipswich High / Middle School to convey flows from the school to the new facility was provided. This allowed a second pump station at the school to be eliminated resulting in significant future cost savings for the Town. The Town was also provided with contract documents necessary to secure a contractor and various construction related services.
