Mt. Rushmore Uses PVC Pipe For New Sewage Lift Station

National Park Service - Mount Rushmore

OVERVIEW

Summary: 

Over the years, Mt. Rushmore staff housing has grown to five single-family homes and one 10-unit apartment complex, increasing the demand on the site's sewage lines. The national park and Denver engineering and consulting firm Rothberg, Tamburini and Winsor drew up plans to construct a new sewage lift station at the base of the 5,700-foot mountain. Plans also included a 3,000- foot long sewage line to run up the mountain's steep, rough terrain to connect with another existing lift station.
