  • Consultant: 300 Engineering
  • Scope of work / Limits:

Pump Station D is located at 7557 Los Pinos Blvd. The project involves the upgrades of the pump station into a more compact submersible configuration, which includes installation of a new wet-well, valve vault, control panel, pumps and associated pipeline. The existing pump station building will be demolished, and the site will be restored with grassed areas. The control panel will be elevated to comply with base flood elevation and sea level rise criteria and a new perimetral hedge will be installed to protect the site. Modifications to the sanitary sewer pipeline coming to the station will be necessary to direct the flow to the new wet well. Additionally, the City will pursue an Envision award for this project.

Cocoplum 3 Pump Station & Force Main

  • Consultant: 300 Engineering

Pump Station Cocoplum 3 is located at 200 Galeon Ct. The project involves the replacement of the existing pumps, control panel and extending the discharge force main to connect it to the new discharge force main from Pump Station Cocoplum 1, which will run along Cocoplum Rd. The discharge force main from Pump Station Cocoplum 3 will be extended along Prado Blvd, from West of the canal crossing to the intersection with Cocoplum Rd, approximately 200 feet. This modification will eliminate re-pumping of the flows generated at the Cocoplum 3 basin, as they will be pumped directly into the City’s manifolded system.
