Gregory Hill Pump Station and Tanks Replacement
The city will replace the existing water pump station and tanks known as the Gregory Hill Pump Station and Tanks located near 82nd Avenue and Osceola Street.
Overall, the work is necessary to replace aging infrastructure that has reached the end of is useful life span. The project will include system improvements to meet the level of service experienced elsewhere in the system for adequate water pressure, flow, redundancy and stored water available for irrigation, firefighting and emergencies. Construction of new pipelines in the area to supply the tanks will begin in a few weeks.
The replacement project is scheduled to begin this summer with completion anticipated for late 2018. The work includes complex operations that require a long-term construction period and mobilization of specialized construction equipment.
Due to the proximity of this project to our customers, the city is taking special precautions to minimize disruption and inconvenience, including:
- Hiring a specialty contractor with high qualifications specifically for this type of work. All contractors bidding this work completed a detailed prequalification process.
- Restricting work hours to Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to limit the impact of construction equipment and work noise. Weekend and evening work will only be permitted if special circumstances arise.
- Careful monitoring of contractor compliance to state and local permit requirements for noise and dust control.
- Sequencing the work to minimize the need for water service disruptions.
For general questions, concerns or comments, please contact the city’s Project Manager Dan Strietelmeier, at 303-658-2179, or firstname.lastname@example.org
