"How To Install A Sewage Pumping Station In Your Development That Won't Cost You A Penny To Run

For larger developments of ten houses or more it is possible to construct a pumping station that can eventually be "adopted" by the local water company.

To do so you need to provide a submersible pump sewer lift station that is compliant with their specification, transfer ownership to the water company, and then they maintain it for the rest of its service life (following an initial period, usually twelve months, of reliable operation)."

neutral  writeaway: a ref or 2 would have been nice. IATE says it's lift stations.

  -> Yes, refs now provided. "Lift station" is an alternative possibility and I admit to not being sure of the boundaries of meaning between the two terms, though "pumping station" seems more inclusive.
