What is the Pump Stations Project?

All SVCW pump stations require replacement or rehabilitation. The Menlo Park Pump Station will be rehabilitated; the Redwood City Pump Station will be replaced; the Belmont Pump Station will be rehabilitated; and, the San Carlos Pump Station is no longer needed due to the new gravity pipeline. Flows from San Carlos and Belmont will enter into the gravity pipeline via a drop structure at the current San Carlos pump station site. Flows from the Menlo Park Pump Station and the Redwood City Pump Station will flow through the new 48-inch force main to a drop structure at Inner Bair Island.

Pump Station Improvements Project

Last Updated April 2021

SPJV recently completed the electrical building foundation at the new Redwood City Pump Station (RWCPS). This month, SPJV will install rebar and pour concrete for the building while concurrently constructing a foundation slab nearby for the standby generator.
SPJV is also coordinating with PG&E to relocate existing overhead power lines adjacent to the RWCPS site and run as underground conduits.
Meanwhile, construction of the Belmont Gravity Pipeline is underway. This team is using a series of shafts and micro tunneling operations to install a gravity pipeline that will replace the Belmont Pump Station. Next month they will start construction on three of the eight shafts.
