This project will focus on upgrading the existing Payran Sewer Lift Station with necessary electrical upgrades, pump replacement, and valve improvements along with instrumentation upgrades for integration into SCADA (our system for collecting real-time data to monitor and control our equipment). The project will bring this Lift station into cohesive operation with our Ellis Creek Water recycling facility.
The Payran Sewer Lift Station, serving the north central portion of the city, moves wastewater from lower to higher elevation through pipes. Performing necessary upgrades at this site is especially important given its location near the river and its limited storage capacity. Currently, our operations team must respond to the site immediately with a portable generator when issues occur. The improvements this project provides will eliminate the need for a portable generator, saving time, resources, and funds in the long run.
Payran Sewer Lift Station, 22 Jess Avenue.
Traffic Impacts & Benefits
The sewer pumps, piping, controls, and building modifications were completed in November 2021. Emergency generator installation and testing occurred in February 2022. The project is considered substantially complete and City staff has begun operations at the sewer lift station. Minor construction items remain but no impact to operations of the lift station are expected. Project completion is expected by June 2022.
The project is funded through Waste Water Capital.
The City of Petaluma has contracted with Clyde Steagall Inc. of Loomis, CA.
