This month, work will progress to 100% on the design elements for three parts of the Pump Station Improvements (PSI) project:
- Redwood City Pump Station
- Menlo Park Pump Station
- Belmont Gravity Pipeline
Since the pump stations are designed to take in wastewater flows from the four SVCW member agencies, the hydraulic conditions in each pump station have been studied through computer and physical models constructed at the Clemson University lab, an industry leading research facility. Findings will inform the design of the PSI project.
This month, SVCW’s design-build partner, Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV), is starting preliminary work on the Belmont Gravity Pipeline in preparation for construction starting in September.
In addition, we’re finally at the stage where preliminary work began on the San Carlos Pump Station, which kicks off general construction for the Pump Stations Improvement projects. The rehabilitation of the pump stations will provide much needed upgrades to the current, aging infrastructure in a cost-effective manner. Rehabilitating and replacing the pump stations is one piece of the whole RESCU program to ensure that SVCW continues to safely convey and treat wastewater for our customers.
