OK Daniel, you are technically right about my choice of words. I will have to be more careful in the future if I write in again. Personally, if someone cares enough to write in and has a good solution to our problem, I would be happy to read it.
I am not an engineer but I did watch the pipes go in at the time of construction. I made the following observations-
The brick manholes are being used to join the lengths of sewer pipe one to the other. Plastic couplings were not used.
Next obervation- the pipe running from the pump station to the treatment pond is a 4" pipe. I asked the contractor at the time if this small pipe would be sufficient for the whole pueblo. He said yes, that the pump was very strong.
Next observation- one day I heard rushing water behind the pump station and asked the people next door what it was. They said that they were pumping the sewage water to the lagoon because the system was overloaded.
I have edited myself to avoid any backlash. As I mentioned these were observations only.
