The existing Riverview Lift Station was constructed in the 1960s 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 was 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 was designed to have the capacity to pump 7.0 MGD and to help reduce CSO discharges. The location of the Riverview Lift Station Replacement Project is just west of the existing lift station, adjacent to Gibson Road. Work includes construction of two diversion structures at the existing Grover and Riverview Street combined sewers to capture flows and convey them to the new Riverview Lift Station.
Lift station improvements are nearing completion. Start-up testing of the four wastewater pumps was performed and substantial completion is anticipated in Q2 2023.
The Blake Street Lift Station Improvements Project was added as a contract change order.
