The LID 7 contractor continues to pour the concrete walls of the pump station intake structure pictured below. In July, the walls are scheduled to be completed and then the top slab supported by the walls will be poured. Construction has also started on the outfall structure located outside the levee. The walls at the downstream end of the outfall are complete, and the new flapgate has been installed. The contractor recently started working on the large box culvert that connects the pump station intake and outfall structures. By the end of June, 100 feet of outfall culvert outside the levee is scheduled to be completed and backfilled. Then, a temporary levee will be constructed over the new outfall. After this is complete the contractor can connect the outfall to the new pump station underneath the existing levee, and the current level of flood protection will be maintained. This second phase of outfall construction is scheduled to begin in July. To safely excavate through the levee large steel sheet piles will need to be driven into the ground, similar to previous phases of construction. A public update will be posted beforehand, and all construction activity is limited to typical work hours (7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday).
The LID 7 Stormwater Pump Station is currently scheduled to be complete by the end of 2023. The LID 7 Board of Directors thanks all the residents of New Territory for their support and patience as this critical flood mitigation project proceeds. For questions regarding the project, please reach out to the District via the “Contact Us” page on the FBCLID 7 website.
