West Yost provided construction management services for this project which featured construction of two separate wastewater pump stations as part of the $600 million Lower Northwest Interceptor program. The pump stations included dual wet and dry well pump stations, CMU Switchgear Buildings, CMU Emergency Standby Power Buildings, buried Junction Structures, Odor Control Facilities, and Chemical Feed Systems.
Other features included:
- Pump stations were over 60-feet deep with cast-in-place concrete structures that included dual train wet wells and dry wells constructed for an ultimate capacity of 220 mgd. Construction required a deep excavation with high groundwater. Base slab was 13-feet thick and the walls between 5- and 8-feet thick.
- Large diameter RCP and C-200 pipelines from 60- to 120-inch that include pig launching stations and flushing water systems supplied from water provided by RD-1000.
- Odor control systems that included liquid calcium nitrate systems and air scrubbers using bio-filtration.
- Water supply system that included a deep groundwater well, hydropneumatic tank, disinfection, and a 300,000 gallon welded steel water storage tank.
- Pumps which included 1750-hp, VFD non-clog centrifugal pumps, and two (2) 2000-kW diesel fueled backup power generators.
- Switchgear buildings that housed dual fed 4160V switchgear with 4160V VFDs for the large pumps (> 1500-hp) and 480V VFDs for the 300-hp pumps.
- The New Natomas Pump Station included demolition of portions of the existing pump station and interconnection of the existing pump station with the new pump station.
The project won the CMAA 2008 National Project of the Year award for an infrastructure project greater than $100 million.
