Riverside Lift Station Replacement Project

The proposed project will include removal of the existing Riverside Lift Station, which is located at the intersection of Riverside Avenue (Illinois Route 25) and Devereaux Way.  A new lift station will be constructed adjacent to the current structure.  The lift station will include a new dual wet well concrete structure, with a capacity of 35 million gallons per day (MGD).  The existing sanitary sewer will be extended to the new lift station location and will be screened prior to entering the wet wells.  Vehicle access to the station, as well as public areas around the lift station, will be improved.  The lift station will be integrated into the existing Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system.  A new emergency, back-up generator, as well as a new odor control system will also be installed.
