Pump Stations Improvements March 2024

SVCW’s Design Builder, Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV), and SPJV’s subcontractor Power Engineering Construction (PEC), continue to make headway on the Belmont Gravity Pipeline (BGP) project. With backfilling and site grading at the Bair Island connecting piping site complete, current efforts are focused towards road restoration to bring the area around the road back to pre-construction conditions. Restoration of the north side of the Inner Bair Island drop structure site has been completed and will be followed by restoration of the site access road. At the San Carlos Pump Station, SPJV has installed the 36-inch Belmont Gravity pipe up to the San Carlos Drop structure, where flows will enter the new gravity pipeline tunnel. The final cutover to this new pipe is scheduled to occur this month.

At the Redwood City Pump Station (RCPS) wet well and screening building, SPJV makes progress with electrical and structural improvements. SPJV has completed installation of the new 76-inch slide gate inside the junction box. This month, SPJV plans to install pipe fittings and appurtenances, such as tees and knife gate valves. At the electrical building, installation of conduits inside the new electrical duct bank continues. Additional work includes installation of wires and control panels to screens and washer compactors.

Structural and electrical improvements at the Menlo Park Pump Station (MPPS) near completion. A 30-day acceptance test has been completed for all newly installed equipment. This served as the final step in the commissioning process to determine if the systems met contract specification requirements.
