Who can Identify this item?

This is a relatively new (2001) development. Public water and sewer. Each home in this end of street circle has one by their driveway or in their front yard (11 homes).

Thanks, The original file size was probably too large. I replaced it with a smaller one.

Maybe a lift station?

Good answer.


I am sorry if my wording suggested this was a contest. I honestly don’t know what these are.

The only thing that occured to me was an electrical vault, power is underground to all these homes. I’ve never seen a round one though, nor did I find any image similar in a Google search or a vault that was so easily accessible.

tank vent

Sewer grinder pump.

Well now that I looked up lift station I learned some new s**t!

Seriously though, while I can see the need for such a device, why does each house have to have a separate one and who maintains it? The county or the property owner? I do believe the listing for this house specified a HOA so that’s another possibility.

Varies. some service more than on residence and will be covered by a separate agreement just as well can be.

In my area I have come across very few shared systems.
