Maplewood Estates Donates Pump to Town of Rockland


Rockland, MA -- Maple Realty Trust, developer of Maplewood Estates, a subdivision located in Rockland, Mass., recently donated $28,000 to the Rockland Sewer Department for the purchase of a Godwin Stand-by Dri-Prime pump for backup emergency situations and time periods of high flow.

“We’ve had a very productive working relationship with the Town of Rockland since we began building Maplewood Estates several years ago. We consider them colleagues and in many cases friends. We’ve seen firsthand the challenges they face on a day-to-day basis due to fiscal constraints and we wanted to help,” said Muhammad Itani, Trustee of Maple Realty Trust.

According to Godwin Stand website, “Engineers are now using Godwin Critically Silenced Dri-Prime pumps in what is being called the next generation of pump station design. The new concept allows customers to replace their traditional pump station emergency backup system – a generator and permanently installed electric sewage pumps – with a Critically Silenced diesel Dri-Prime pump and automatic control panel. This alternative solution avoids common pump station problems including primary power, switch gear, and sewage pump failures. In addition, the Dri-Prime backup system can act as a primary system during routine maintenance and emergency repairs. Thus, the Godwin solution ensures that pumping continues. “

“We can’t thank the folks at Stonebridge Homes and Maplewood Estates enough for this generous donation to buy the Godwin Stand-by pump,” said John Loughlin, superintendent of the Rockland Sewer Department. “Over the years, Maplewood Estates have shown themselves to be a solid citizen in the town. The donation for this pump shows that they are vested not only in what happens in the Maplewood Estates subdivision but the entire Town of Rockland.”
