Pipe and Pump Sizing

Hi guys,
I am trying to determine the appropriate pipe size to use for sewage system.
(1) We need to find the right pipe size to collect sewage from different locations to lift station. It will be gravity sewer. The flow rate from these different locations will be less than 50 GPM.What will be the right pipe Size?

(2) We is the appropriate capacity or dimensions of the lift station which will receive the effluent from these differnt locaions? if we install two pumps in the lift staion to pump the fluid to evaporation pond, what will thier capacity be?
