Wastewater Pump Station Improvements

Overview:  The objective of the Pump Station improvements portion of the project is to make recommendations concerning improvements (flood-related, addition of grinders, access improvements, etc) to each of the Town’s 14 pump stations included in the project and oversee bidding and construction management services related to the recommended improvements. 

This project includes an analysis of which pump station facilities to include in the project, a Preliminary Engineering Report, detailed design, preparation of any environmental reports and all permits, bidding of the construction project, and construction administration.

Project Scope: In general, the following tasks will be included in the scope of work for each of the 14 pump stations:

  • A hydraulic analysis of each pump station will be completed.  Hydraulic analysis will be focused on the overall capacity of the station and system modeling.  Recommendations will be based on build-out flow projections and other reports or information as available.
  •  A site/component analysis to improve operations including the following:
    • The selection of temporary trailer mounted pumps, if required.
    • Recommendations related to flood protection.  No flood elevations will be calculated, however known existing flood elevations from published reports may be included.
    • Recommendations related to temporary by-pass measures.
    • Recommendations on the addition and selection of grinders.
    • Recommendations on any improvements that can improve the maintenance or operation of the pump station, including odor control and installation of a pigging station.
    • Town of Cary will then prioritize recommended improvements.

Status Update, Winter 2020: Final design and permitting is complete.  Bidding of the project, along with Talloway pump station parallel force main, is occurring during the months of September and October 2019, with bids due to the Town October 22, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.  A pre-bid meeting will be held at Town Hall, Engineering Department, Second Floor, Room 21275 on October 8, 2019 at 1:00.  Construction is set to begin Early 2021, lasting approximately 15 months.
