Agenda Item Summary:
This project includes two 16” sewer force mains and a 24” gravity sewer main to be constructed from North Elk Vale Road and Seger Drive south to Elk Vale Road and Homestead Street, approximately 2.5 miles in length, to accommodate flows from the Elk Vale Lift Station. The project also includes piping modifications within the lift station to allow for the use of the new force mains. This project is needed to meet the near term expected sewer demands from the upstream service area. The Elk Vale Lift Station was upgraded in 2013. This project will allow for the full capacity of the lift station to be used. This project is a high priority of the Sewer Operations Department due to the limitations of the existing force main and gravity sewer main. Funding for this project is through Wastewater Revenue Bonds, of which the resolution authorizing the issuance and sale of the bonds was approved by City Council on December 21, 2020, Item WS121620-10.
