The City of Stillwater and Stillwater Utilities Authority will replace the pumps at the West Park Lift Station.
The West Park Lift Station (WPLS) is located northwest of Country Club Road and State Highway 51 (6th Avenue) in the West Park Addition. The lift station is 40 years old, deteriorating, receiving inflow and infiltration and no longer working efficiently. Staff are evaluating the feasibility of eliminating this lift station in the future through the Western Interceptors Project here. Until a new interceptor can be built, staff will upgrade the WPLS with necessary and cost-effective solutions to ensure continued operation over the next few years.
January 24, 2017: The design phase is in progress which includes technical evaluation of the lift station and development of plans and specifications for a full replacement.
November 15, 2017: Haynes Equipment Company conducted a test of the lift station and force main. Results are currently being analyzed.
February 27, 2018: Testing of the lift station and force main continue.
June 5, 2018: The City cleaned the force main to insure the pipe was not blocked. Further evaluation is underway.
December 24, 2018: The project scope was modified to wait to replace the existing pumps until a study is done on a new interceptor project that may eliminate the lift station.
March 7, 2019: The design Engineer finalized the technical research for recommending specifications for the new pumps.
June 4, 2019: Staff are currently reviewing the Engineer's pump recommendation.
August 12, 2019: Staff are contacting pump suppliers for quotes.
October 30, 2019: Staff are considering upgrading the lift station's existing electrical system to better support the required pump.
December 17, 2019: Staff are preparing the documents to competitively bid this project in early 2020.
