wiring a lift station

I have a lift station at my home that does not have power to it. The previous owner used to plus a cord into the small control panal to start the pump when needed. The control panal was set up to where it had a group of wires going into the ground( 1 large cable leading into the pump area then attched to the cable are 2 sets of wires 1 set black, white, green, Which to me looks like for my power in. The other 2 wires are black and white . I would think they would be control wires for the float maybe. I am a electrician but don't know much about lift stations. So I just want to bring permanent power to this thing instead of plugging a cord in all the time. Thanks Robert

Is this a lift station from a septic to a drain field?

Since your an electrician this should be real easy. Get the specs and get to work.
