Riverview Lift Station Replacement Project


Construction is underway; completion is expected in Q4 2022.

Project Location

Southeast of the Henry Doorly Zoo, between Gibson Road and the Missouri River

Project Description

New lift stations will provide additional flows to the South Interceptor Force Main (SIFM) and maximize conveyance to the Missouri River Water Resource Recovery Facility (MRWRRF) for neighborhoods and businesses near and around the Henry Doorly Zoo.

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 the existing lift station, adjacent to Gibson Road. Work will include 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.

The project was bid in Q4 2019 and awarded to Eriksen Construction in November 2019. Construction Notice-to-Proceed occurred in March 2020.
