Burt-Izard Lift Station Improvements


Construction anticipated to begin in 2018.

Project Description

The existing Burt-Izard Lift Station was originally constructed in the 1960s as part of the South Interceptor Sewer Project and has the capability to pump 50 million gallons per day (MGD) during wet weather events.  Although improvements and modifications have been made to the facility since the 1960s, because of the current condition of the facility, the existing South Interceptor Force Main, and Missouri River Water Resource Recovery Facility, the facility operates at half this capacity during wet weather events.

CDM Smith has been working on the design for the improvements needed at the lift station. The recommended lift station improvements consist of upgrades to the Grit Building, Bar Screen Room, and Lift Station, which will require electrical, structural, architectural, instrumentation, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and process improvements. The facility will be designed with a firm capacity to pump 50 MGD into the new South Interceptor Force Main (SIFM).
