OmniSite Pump Station Monitoring and Alarm System

OmniSite: Elizabethtown Regional

Elizabethtown Regional Sewage Authority Staff

The Elizabethtown Regional Sewer Authority (ERSA) was established in January 2012 through the merger of the Mount Joy Township Authority and the West Donegal Township Authority. ERSA currently operates 15 pumping stations, serving approximately 4,800 customers.

In early 2015, ERSA recognized the need to upgrade their outdated landline pump station alarm dialers. Along with their age, these dialers presented several issues that required attention:

  1. Various alarm dialers with limited or no technical support.
  2. Expensive monthly phone service fees.
  3. Dialers were providing alarms only, lacking operational information.
  4. Settings and programming had to be manually done on the devices themselves.
  5. Visiting the station was necessary for any and all alarms, resulting in excessive overtime.

With the decision to standardize and enhance their pump station alarm monitoring systems, ERSA collaborated with Envirep. They installed an OmniSite Pump Station Monitoring System by Envirep as a trial unit at one of their 15 pump stations. The trial proved highly successful, leading ERSA to upgrade all 15 pump stations with the OmniSite Crystal Ball alarm monitoring system by May 2019.

When asked about his experience with OmniSite, ERSA’s Operations Supervisor, Steve Rettew, referred to the implementation as a blessing.

  1. Provides detailed operational data such as pump run times, cycles, and flows.
  2. Easy identification of data discrepancies for quick issue resolution.
  3. User-friendly interface.
  4. Enables a proactive approach to pump station maintenance rather than reactive.
  5. Allows for informed decision-making during alarm situations, unlike the previous systems.
