Brooklane Wastewater Lift Station
City of Corvallis, Oregon
West Yost designed a new lift station to replace the existing Brooklane Lift Station. This replacement was necessary because current flows exceed the capacity of the existing station. The new 17 mgd lift station included a 30 feet deep, self-cleaning, trench style wet well, a below grade covered valve and piping gallery, and an electrical generator building partially over the wet well and valve gallery.
The design allowed for continued operation of the existing lift station during construction even as the new station undermined the existing station by 10 feet. The lift station is located in an established residential neighborhood next to an existing bridge and creek. As such, the station was designed to minimize encroachment past the footprint of the existing station.
