Wansford Yard Lift Station Phase 1-BC  Lift Station Force Main and Pfeiffer Road Interceptor Sewer Project

The lift station force main portion of this project includes the installation of approximately 8,600 feet of new 30" sanitary sewer force main within several city streets from Diamond Avenue to the new Wansford Yard Lift Station located on Harlan Avenue.  The work also involves the crossing of Pigeon Creek with associated bank stabilization with articulated concrete block mats, concrete armor masonry units, and high performance turf reinforcement mats.  

The Pfeiffer Road interceptor sewer portion of the project includes the installation of approximately 2,000 feet of new 30" gravity sanitary sewer pipe using open cut trenching methods and over 800 feet of gravity sanitary sewer using trenchless methods.  The work also includes the installation of 7 new sanitary manhole structures and related sewer bypass pumping to complete the installation between the existing Pfeiffer Road Lift Station to the new Wansford Yard Lift Station on Harlan Avenue.
