Construction continues on the new Stormwater Pump Station intake structure. The lower walls are complete so the top slab of the discharge channel can be poured. Construction has also started on the upper walls that will support the elevated motors for the new pumps.
LID 7 Stormwater Pump Station Intake (inside levee)
Construction of the pump station outfall structure located outside the levee is also complete along with 100 feet of the outfall pipe that will connect the pump station intake and outfall structures. The contractor is currently backfilling around the new outfall and will construct a temporary levee over the new pipe. This will allow the contractor to safely install the remaining segment of outfall pipe located underneath the LID 7 levee, and the District will maintain the same level of flood protection throughout construction. This second phase of outfall construction is scheduled to begin in mid-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. 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.
