The Richmond Ferry Point Sewer Pump Station is located at Dornan Drive and Brickyard Cove Road. This pump station and corresponding equipment has reached the end of its useful life and requires replacement. In November 2020, the City contracted with design firm Schaaf & Wheeler to design the replacement project. Veolia Water will be managing the Construction and testing contracts.
The project has been phased in four phases to allow for construction of the new facilities while keeping the existing pump station operational. In Phase 1, road improvements, including an intersection with a 4-way stop, will be constructed to permanently divert all traffic to the southwest corner of the existing pump station. In Phase 2, the new pump station wet wells, masonry walls, mechanical piping & equipment, electrical installation & equipment, including a new EPA compliant back-up generator and the new electrical service by PG&E, will be installed. During Phase 3, the new pump station will be energized, started up and placed into service. Phase 4, the final phase, will include the decommissioning and removal of the existing pump station.
