Gregory Hill Pump Station and Tanks Replacement Project

The city will replace the existing water pump station and tanks known as the Gregory Hill Pump Station and Tanks located near 82nd Avenue and Osceola Street.

Project Update:

The new tanks have been disinfected and filled, and the pump station is now online pumping water from the tanks into the distribution system. Additional pump performance tests are scheduled to be completed over the next few weeks. The construction of the wall has been completed with demolition of the old fence and installation of the ornamental perimeter fence scheduled to begin in April. Additional connections to the existing water distribution system will continue requiring brief periods of water outages. Impacted residences will be notified in advance. Final grading is underway with paving and landscaping scheduled for completion in May.

A project webcam has been established and will be used to create a time lapse of the project construction. The webcam provides an image that is updated approximately every hour.

Project Details

Overall, the work is necessary to replace aging infrastructure that has reached the end of is useful life span. The project will include system improvements to meet the level of service experienced elsewhere in the system for adequate water pressure, flow, redundancy and stored water available for irrigation, firefighting and emergencies.

Timeline

The replacement project is anticipated for completion summer 2019. The work includes complex operations that require a long-term construction period and mobilization of specialized construction equipment.

Project Impact

Due to the proximity of this project to our customers, the city is taking special precautions to minimize disruption and inconvenience, including: 

Hiring a specialty contractor with high qualifications specifically for this type of work. All contractors bidding this work completed a detailed prequalification process.
Restricting work hours to Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to limit the impact of construction equipment and work noise. Weekend and evening work will only be permitted if special circumstances arise.

Careful monitoring of contractor compliance to state and local permit requirements for noise and dust control. Sequencing the work to minimize the need for water service disruptions.
