Projects That are Under Construction or In Final Design
Generator Reliability Improvements Project:
The District is preparing to construct improvements at all pump stations as well as the treatment plant to replace aging emergency backup generators. This project will improve reliability in the event of power outages, especially with prolonged power outages anticipated from PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events during periods of high fire danger.
Coloma Pump Station Improvements Project:
This project, which is planned to begin in 2020, will replace two sewer pump stations with a single combined pump station to improve capacity, update controls and improve operator safety. A key feature of this pump station is to substantially increase the capacity of a constrained section of the District’s conveyance pipeline.
Clarifier Rehabilitation Project:
Now that the District’s treatment plant has a new redundant clarifier which was constructed during the Upgrade Project, the existing clarifier will be rehabilitated to ensure it continues to provide reliable treatment. This clarifier has been in continuous use since 1953.
The District will continue to implement improvements for safety, reliability and capacity in the coming years through the continued implementation of its ongoing Capital Improvements Program.
