Virtual Public Meeting

Lift Station 87 Wet Weather Flow Transfer Project involves designing, permitting and building a new 3.5-million gallon per day (mgd) lift station at 690 43rd St. S. in the Childs Park area. It also includes a new 16-inch diameter pipeline to connect the new lift station to the Pasadena Master Pump Station located on Park Circle South.
This new facility and pipeline will help balance wet weather flow between the Northwest Water Reclamation Facility and the Southwest Water Reclamation Facility and improve wastewater service reliability. This project is required by Florida Department of Environment Protection Consent Order No. 16-1280 to address wet weather overflows from the City’s wastewater system.
Construction is estimated to start late 2021-early 2022 and will occur at the new lift station site and along the chosen pipeline route. Sewer replacement work will occur on 43rd St. S., from the YMCA’s entrance to the southwest corner of Fairmount Park Elementary School’s property, so the road will be temporarily closed and detours put in place. Planning and coordination will take place to minimize impacts.
Once construction begins, nearby residents and businesses may hear construction activity during weekdays, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Construction is normally limited to weekdays, but some work may occur at night or on weekends to reduce impacts to the community. Residents will receive advance notice of any work that occurs outside normal construction hours.
Residents may also notice construction traffic to and from the new lift station site and near pipeline construction. Residents near the new lift station may feel some vibration from heavy machinery.
