What is the Front of Plant Project?

The Front of Plant (FoP) Project consists of the design, construction, permitting, start-up, commissioning, and closeout for the Receiving Lift Station (RLS), Headworks Facility, Odor Control Facilities, Influent Connector Pipe, Chemical Offload Facilities, Civil site work, Emergency Overflow pipe to storage basin and related process support systems. A Progressive Design-Build procurement process guides the Front of Plant work in stages.

Front of Plant Project

Last Updated September 2020

Our contractor partner, Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV), is constructing the fourth and final lift of the interior stairwell structure walls of the Receiving Lift Station (RLS), which can be seen in the photo to the right. The forms that were placed to support the concrete while the interior walls are curing will be stripped and removed once the concrete is cured.
Safety decks were installed on the third and fourth lift panels to ensure the safety of the crews working inside the stairwells of the RLS. Two stairwells are currently under construction, with the expectation that construction will continue over the next few months.
In addition, SPJV is installing a 48-inch High Density Polyethylene overflow pipe. The overflow pipe will allow wastewater flows from the Headworks Facility to be carried to the sludge drying beds, which serve as a relief basin in an unlikely event that incoming wet weather flows exceed the Headworks Facility’s capacity. This rare scenario was accounted for during the design and construction phases to provide contingency and provision for such an event.
