This Summit is organized by the Pennsylvania Water Environment Association (PWEA) Collection System Committee. We will present topics starting at the inlet of the force main and moving downstream to the discharge. Pump stations have always been the beating heart of a collection system. Advances in technology and enforcement have made force main topics of greater interest.
