Eastside Wastewater Improvement Project
Project Manager: David Frazier
Assistant Project Manager: Roger Sparks
Current Project Status: Construction
This project includes identifying the best location for, and the construction of a new sanitary sewer pump station near Candy Creek, along with associated force mains and gravity sewer interceptors. The new station will replace the existing Easton Road pump station, which is under capacity and not in the proper location to meet future service needs. The project will also evaluate and address the condition of the Faraon Street Pump Station and associated force main and implement measures for their continued use in the near term.

Project Funding Amount:
The new Candy Creek Pump Station is substantially complete and is being operating in automatic mode.
The Faraon Street Headworks Building and Pump Station is also substantially complete and the station is operating in automatic mode. Systems are closely being monitored to ensure they continue to operate as designed.
Progress on the excavation necessary for the new headwords building at Faraon was delayed because of rainfall, excessive groundwater and muddy conditions in the excavation, resulting in the project running behind schedule. The contractor is requesting additional time because of those conditions, and additional compensation because of unexpected site conditions (reinforced concrete shoring beams from the original station construction).
Further delays were experienced at Faraon in resolving vibration and elevated bearing temperatures of the newly installed main duty pumps. The contractor diligently pursued the troubleshooting process and has resolved those issues.
We met with the contractor and reached an agreement resolving all the above mentioned items. Change order #4, which grants additional time has been approved.
The final payment for the Faraon Street Pump Station portion of the project will be processed soon.
