St. Clair Township Lift Station Emergency Generators Project




PROJECT NAME: St. Clair Township Lift Station Emergency Generators Project
OWNER: St. Clair Township
LOCATION: Belleville, St. Clair Township, Illinois
CONSTRUCTION COST: $75,000
YEAR COMPLETED: 2008
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: St. Clair Township completed the installation of a 35 KW generator at the Weatherstone Lift Station, near the Southwestern Illinois College campus.  The project also includes an automatic transfer switch, which automatically starts and transfers power to the lift station when utility power is off.  The new generator is fueled with natural gas.

Also as part of the project, St. Clair Township purchased a portable 50 KW trailer mounted generator and modified 12 other lift stations with manual transfer switches to allow for an easy transition to generator power during power outages.
