The District began construction on a new sewer pump station in May. The new facility, which replaces a smaller pump station built in 1985, is located just east of Highway 99 along South 359th Street. Where the original pump station could transfer wastewater flows to the Lakota Wastewater Treatment Plant at a rate of nearly 800 gallons per minute, the new $7.2 million Pump Station 33B will have room to grow to a capacity of 6,300 gallons per minute. This should be more than adequate to handle long-term growth in the southern part of the District’s service area. The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2022.
