Pump Stations Improvements March 2023

SVCW’s contractor partner, Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV), and SPJV’s subcontractor Power Engineering Construction (PEC), get closer to conclusion of the Belmont Gravity Pipeline (BGP) project along Shoreway Road. With the final phase of microtunneling complete as of December 2022, PEC is set to complete restoring jacking shaft 3 (JS-3). This will be followed by restoration of receiving shaft 3 (RS-3), which will involve installing the last stretch of piping, placing manholes and removing walers and sheet piles. SPJV and PEC continue to maintain a high level of coordination with the SVCW public outreach team and neighboring businesses, to limit construction impacts due to traffic modifications.

At the Redwood City Pump Station (RCPS), SPJV proceeds with structural and electrical work at the pump station wet well and screening structure. SPJV is currently in the process of setting forms, pouring concrete and installing rebar for the wet well pump shelves, which are designed to provide structural support and stability to the pumps.

SPJV makes progress with structural and electrical work at the Menlo Park Pump Station (MPPS). Installation of sump pump and piping as well as sensors, level transmitters and other instrumentation was completed at the A-side wet well last month. Additional activities at the A-side and B-side wet well include installation and testing of the new odor control fans. Simultaneously, SPJV continues to move forward with several electrical improvements. The new variable frequency drives (VFDs), which will be used to control pump motor operations, were delivered on site last month and are currently being installed. Once installed, they will be connected to the wiring and control system in the electrical room.
