Pumping stations are facilities including pumps and equipment for pumping fluids from one place to another. They are used for a variety of infrastructure systems, such as the supply of water to canals, the drainage of low-lying land, and the removal of sewage to processing sites. When low lying areas of land are drained, the general method is to dig drainage ditches. However, if the area is below sea level then it is necessary to pump the water into the sea. DMSI has successfully installed multiple storm water pump stations throughout Miami Dade County in order to facilitate the removal of water due to sea level rise.
