AT A GLANCE

The Parker Pump Station Replacement Project is vital to the City of Coronado's current and future infrastructure. The Project will construct a new $26 million wastewater and stormwater pump station to improve operational efficiency, prevent flooding in homes and pollutions to the ocean, and increase resiliency to sea level rise. The project will also construct an additional 6,000 square feet of green space for the community. The City held a groundbreaking ceremony at the project site on January 6, 2023, for the community.


This project will:

  • Construct a new pump station that will collect, and route storm water and sanitary sewer flows and replace the existing pump station.
  • Help minimize sewer failure/disruption to area residences and flooding from stormwater overflow during rain events, by bringing the electrical components above ground and installing a permanent emergency generator.

PROJECT UPDATE (January 23, 2023)

Construction activities for the new Parker Pump Station are underway. The contractor’s equipment is on site and crews have removed the existing landscaping. Temporary fencing has been installed on the Naval Base property to create additional space for the construction supplies and equipment. Crews have installed water pollution controls to keep the intersection and stormwater catch basin clear of sediment. Surveyors are on-site establishing construction control points.

FUNDING

The total cost of the project is $26 million. With Congressman Scott Peters from California's 52nd Congressional District championing the project, the City of Coronado will receive $3 million in federal appropriations to help fund the Project.


SCHEDULE

  • January 2023 to Winter 2024 (*barring inclement weather or supply issues)
  • Monday through Friday, 7 am to 4:30 pm

The City will work to complete the project as quickly as possible while minimizing dust, noise, and other impacts. Please use caution around the work area and thank you for your patience as we work to improve our infrastructure.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Located at Eighth Street at Coronado Avenue, the existing Parker Pump Station was constructed in 1983 and services both storm water and wastewater flows. The new Parker Pump Station will replace the current aging and failing station located at the western end of the city, along the Naval Base boundary. The Parker Pump Station is a critical piece of infrastructure responsible for collecting and routing storm water and sanitary sewer flows in the Country Club area of the city and is one of the largest of the 20 pump stations citywide. The replacement project will completely rebuild the Parker Pump Station to provide service for generations and better protect the pump station from impacts from flooding and storm surge.

PROJECT DETAILS

  • Reconfiguration of the site to provide approximately 6,000 square feet of publicly accessible green space.
  • Relocation of all planned above-ground structures to approximately 75 feet behind the face of curb along Coronado Avenue.
  • Significantly reduce the need for a temporary, above-ground storm water and wastewater bypass system during construction by keeping the existing pump station operational throughout construction of the new station.
