A lift station pumps wastewater uphill and commonly to a point where it can gravity flow downhill again. A lift station is equipped with pumps, wet wells, and control systems the pumps force the wastewater through a pipe, referred to as a force main. Not all wastewater lines lead to lift stations; some go directly to the wastewater treatment plant because the plant is lower in elevation than the homes it services. This is referred to as gravity flow.
We currently have five lift stations in our collection system and all are monitored on a daily basis.

The City of Cibolo’s Wastewater Division is currently made up of five employees, which consists of a Foreman, a Crew Leader and three Wastewater Technicians. A Superintendent oversees the daily operations of both the water and wastewater divisions.
The employees of this division are responsible for operating and maintaining the wastewater collection system. This system includes:
The wastewater crews clean, maintain, and monitor all of these components of the system. In addition, the crews inspect lines and manholes, with video equipment to search for infiltration/inflow. Reducing infiltration/inflow achieves cost savings in treatment and facilitates a more reliable collection system.
