Ronald Wastewater District to replace the sewage lift station on the beach at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park.

Friday, April 22, 2011

from Ronald Wastewater
The lift station serving the restrooms on the beach (RWD LS 16) is now at least 35 years old and in need of replacement. Nordic Construction was awarded the contract to replace the lift station. The contractor’s bid was $86,340.75. Two other bids received were for $87,441.23 and $102,382.00. The engineer’s estimated cost is $99,472.68.

Most of the work will take place just north of the restrooms on the beach. Some work will take place in the upper parking lot just west of restrooms there.

The work will consist of removing the aged and worn pump and station housing on the beach, and replacing them with a new duplex Environment-One grinder pump station. All electrical wiring and panels will be upgraded. A new forcemain will be installed from the lift station, under the railroad tracks, to the connection point in the parking lot above.

The existing wet well and the existing overflow storage basin will be refurbished to act as emergency overflow storage basins. The capacity of these basins will be more than adequate to prevent any sewage from overflowing during power outages. The new station provides service to the existing restroom with a 1 horsepower motor, replacing the existing 10 horsepower motor in the outdated station. This public works project is part of the District’s ongoing effort to have a “greener footprint” for our community.

The contractor has not set a start date. The duration of the work should be no more than 60 calendar days from the start date.

Project drawings and specifications are available for viewing at the District’s office, 17505 Linden Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98155, 206-546-2494.
