SVCW’s contractor partner, Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV), who has been working within the Receiving Lift Station (RLS) shaft over the last few months, just started work on two mezzanine decks. These will allow inspection and maintenance staff to access the shaft above the floor, which is 90 feet below the top of the RLS shaft.

The upper mezzanine (picture left) will be used as a walkway for observing conditions in the shaft while the lower mezzanine will serve as a maintenance platform. The grating and framing work for these mezzanine levels will be enclosed with tour-rated railings installed for increased safety.

SPJV is also installing the shaft elevator for mobilizing staff, small equipment, and tools. This elevator will provide access to the upper and lower mezzanine levels as well as the RLS pumps at the bottom.
