Lift Station Alarms

The Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water & Sewer Commission has been receiving complaints about lift station horns going off at night in the Demere Rd and Frederica Academy area.  The BGJWSC has checked its lift stations in this area and BGJWSC lift stations are functioning properly.  The BGJWSC also has electronic notification through its SCADA system.  This system confirms that BGJWSC lift stations are functioning properly.

Reasons for horns going off could be one or a combination of the following:

  • Private lift stations malfunctioning.  There are 7 private lift stations in the area.
  • Privately owned grinder pumps with warning alarms going off
  • Georgia Power alarms
