Pumping stations supply water or sewage to the treatment facility or may be installed to boost up water head. Usually pumping stations are located near the water treatment facility or a potable water storage facility. It pumps directly into the piping system. These pump stations may be a part of these other structures. Pumps which pump directly into transmission lines and distribution systems are sometimes called high lift pumps. Booster pumps may be located anywhere in the system to increase the pressure in the pipeline. Booster pump stations are usually located remote from the main pump station, as in hilly topography, where pressure zones are required. Booster pumps may be needed to handle peak flows in a distribution system which can otherwise handle the normal flow requirements.
