Riverview Lift Station Replacement and Blake Street Lift Station Project


Schedule

Construction anticipated to begin fall 2018.

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) to the Missouri River Water Resource Recovery Facility (MRWWRF).  A new lift station is needed to ensure flows from the Riverview and Grover Street sewers can be reliably pumped into the new South Interceptor Force Main and to maximize conveyance of wet weather flows to the MRWRRF. Lift station capacity is also needed to accommodate the Henry Doorly Zoo cleaning and draining of exhibits and facilities. The new lift station is being designed to have the capacity to pump 7.0 MGD. The location of the new lift station will be just west of its current location adjacent to Gibson Road. Work will include construction of a diversion structure along both the existing Grover and Riverview Street combined sewers to capture flows and convey them to the new Riverview Lift Station.

Another new lift station, identified as the Blake Street Lift Station, will be constructed near the intersection of Hascall and Blake Streets. This lift station will accept flows from the Martha Street and Spring Street subbasins. The new lift station is being designed to have the capacity to pump 2.0 MGD. The lift station will pump flows to the existing Grover Street combined sewer that currently crosses the BNSF Railway Gibson Yard. Future sewer improvements and installation of a diversion structure, as part of the Riverview Lift Station Replacement Project, will ultimately facilitate conveyance of flows from the existing Grover Street combined sewer to the new Riverview Lift Station.

*As of August 2017, the Missouri River Wastewater Treatment Plant (MRWWTP) Improvements Project is now known as the Missouri River Water Resource Recovery Facility (MRWRRF) Improvements Project.
