Riverview Lift Station Replacement


Construction anticipated to begin in 2017.

Project Description

The existing Riverview Lift Station was originally constructed in the 1960s as part of the South Interceptor Sewer Project and has the capacity to pump 3.5 million gallons per day (MGD).  A new lift station is needed to provide capacity for peak dry weather flows from the upstream watershed and higher wet weather flows.  These flows include capacity to accommodate the Henry Doorly Zoo draining of tanks and ponds as regular cleaning activities occur. The lift station is also needed to ensure flow from the Riverview, Grover and Martha Street sewers can be reliably pumped into the new South Interceptor Force Main and to maximize conveyance of wet weather flows to the Missouri River Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The location of the lift station and the pumping capacity for the facility will be determined during preliminary design.
