The Blake Street Lift Station Improvements Project will be a new lift station near the intersection of Hascall and Blake Streets. The Blake Street Lift Station Improvements Project, in conjunction with the completion of the Riverview Lift Station Replacement Project will allow for the decommissioning of the Martha Street, Hickory Street, and Spring Street lift stations. The new Blake Street Lift Station will have an approximate capacity of 2 million gallons per day (MGD) and will receive combined flows from the Martha Street and Spring Street sub-basins. The lift station will send flows to the existing Grover Street combined sewer and then to the new Riverview Lift Station Replacement Project.
The Blake Street Lift Station Improvements Project was added as a change order to the Riverview Lift Station Replacement construction contract.
This project will allow for the abandonment of the Spring Street and Hickory Street Lift Stations, which have been in service for over 50 years. The Martha Street Lift Station will also be abandoned and the CSO 112 outfall will be monitored to determine if it can be eventually closed.
Pump installation will occur in Q3 2023.
This project was added as a contract change order to the Riverview Lift Station Replacement Project.
