Pump Station Improvements July 2020

Belmont Gravity Pipeline

The Belmont Gravity Pipeline will replace the existing pumps and force main, which carries wastewater from the current Belmont Pump Station. Design will reach 100% this month.

Redwood City Pump Station

The SVCW Commission approved the construction phase of the design-build contract with Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV). The Redwood City Pump Station will be completely replaced and will include a remote screening facility; the new pump station will be adjacent to the existing station on the same site. Once complete, the Redwood City Pump Station will be capable of pumping flows during the wet weather season from both Redwood City and the Menlo Park Pump Station which serves the West Bay Sanitary District. Flow exiting the Redwood City pump station will merge with the Menlo Park Pump Station flow before entering the new gravity pipeline tunnel, which is then carried to the SVCW wastewater treatment facility.

Menlo Park Pump Station

This month, the project will reach 100% design. Investigations into the condition of the pipe downstream of the pump station are currently ongoing.

San Carlos Pump Station

Crews are preparing for construction by coordinating and finalizing work schedules. Both Shea Parson Joint Venture and Barnard-Bessac Joint Venture are collaborating on this project to connect the Redwood City and Belmont flows to the gravity pipeline.
