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.

Last Updated September 2020

Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV) is working to complete 100% designs for each pump station. SVCW is currently in the process of reviewing the hydraulic models for average day and peak flow conditions.

SPJV continues to prepare for construction on the Belmont Gravity Pipeline and its connection to the gravity tunnel at the San Carlos pump station. Soil investigation work was completed along the Belmont Gravity Pipeline alignment and inspections were carried out of the existing sewer pipeline that carries flows between the Menlo Park pump station and the Redwood City pump station. SPJV is now planning to move onsite within the next few months.
