Pump Station Abandonment Food Lion and Highland Creek No. 1

Improvement project will replace aging materials to meet future infrastructure capacity demand.

This project will design and construct gravity sewer extensions at each pump stations so they can be abandoned. The Food Lion Pump Station is located near downtown Rolesville. The Highland Creek Pump Station #1 is located in the north east portion of the Highland Creek subdivision. 
The City of Raleigh is currently in the process of initiating the design contract with the consulting engineer, McKim & Creed. After the contract is executed, the data collection and preliminary engineering work will commence.

History

The City of Raleigh operates over 100 pump stations in the service area. Pump stations are used to lift wastewater to a higher elevation sewer pipe when the gravity sewer gets too deep.  As new areas of a sewer basin develop, small pump stations are often constructed until the basin is more developed with a common gravity sewer system. As basins develop, the City of Raleigh periodically reviews small pump stations and looks for opportunities to consolidate the system to reduce operation and maintenance costs. The City of Raleigh also seeks to proactively repair, rehabilitate, replace, or abandon pump stations in poor condition. Both pump stations in this project are located close to newer gravity sewer and are relatively easy to design for abandonment. The Food Lion Pump Station has deteriorated in condition due to corrosion and will be abandoned in lieu of replacement.  The Highland Creek Pump Station #1 was one of the first stations in its area; now that the sewer basin has grown around it, the time is right to abandon this station. The design of this project began in Winter 2021 with survey and associated data acquisition. Survey notification letters were distributed to all parties adjacent to the project corridors.
