Tuesday 12/6/16 the team from the RWSA hosted a Rivanna pumping station update meeting with presentations by RWSA’s senior civil engineer Michelle Simpson, and by representatives from contractors Adams Robinson and Hazen and Sawyer.
Rivanna’s contractors will be returning to the site this month to begin work connecting the old 36″ Rivanna collector (pipe) with the new 60″ pipe installed in the tunnel bored from the park to the Moore’s Creek wastewater plant.
“Bypass pumping” will take place in February and March 2017. The 24/7 pumping is anticipated to last one to two weeks and will utilize “critically silenced” pumps to minimize noise and meet city noise ordinance.
Once the pipe connections are complete and the new pump station at Moore’s Creek is operational, demolition of the old pump station will proceed and the pump station location next to Riverview Park will be restored to a flat grass surface.
