Energy Efficient Pump Station Receives Over $50,000 in Energy Efficiency Rebates

The Town of Hampton is celebrating the commissioning of its new pump station on Church Street. The pump station is a vital piece of the town’s wastewater infrastructure and transfers all wastewater from portions of its beach community to the main treatment facility.

The new, energy efficient pump station replaces an outdated facility which had been located at the same site since 1935. The new pump station, designed by Wright-Pierce, will provide more efficient wastewater pumping while at the same time reducing overall maintenance and energy costs for the town.

"It was a pleasure to work collaboratively with the Town of Hampton in the development of their new pump station. Their enthusiasm for providing reliable and cost-effective components for their community made this a great fit for Wright-Pierce,” said Tim Vadney, Senior Project Manager, Wright-Pierce.

Wright-Pierce designed the pump station to use both of the town’s existing sewer force mains, which minimized electric consumption by reducing the total connected horsepower. Other energy efficiency items were also included in the design, which were eligible for participation in Unitil’s energy efficiency programs. This approach allowed the Town of Hampton to be granted over $50,000 in rebates by Unitil.

 "The pump station is a critical component of the wastewater system and Wright Pierce did an excellent job designing and overseeing construction of our new facility,” said Town of Hampton Public Works Director Keith Noyes. "We’re also very grateful to Unitil for helping the town secure such a significant energy rebate.”
