Parker Pump Station Replacement Project

AT A GLANCE

The City broke ground at the project site on January 6, 2023. The Parker Pump Station Replacement Project is vital to the City of Coronado's current and future infrastructure and is the largest of 20 pump stations citywide. The City is investing $26 million to replace the existing, aging Parker Pump Station with a new pump station. This critical infrastructure, located at 8th Street and Coronado Avenue, is responsible for collecting stormwater and sanitary sewer flows. The new pump station will improve operational efficiency and prevent flooding in homes, and pollution to the ocean. An additional 6,000 square feet of green space will also be added for the neighborhood to enjoy.

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. 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.

    Shoring operations were placed on hold beginning April 28 (2023) due to concerns with the installation method. The City contractor, Filanc made adjustments to the procedure and this phase of work resumed on May 18 and is expected to be completed by May 26. Noise mitigation measures are in place; however, it will still be loud during this work.

    The City and Filanc understand this activity is impactful to the surrounding neighborhood and are working to complete this work as efficiently as possible. We want to thank the residents for their cooperation and patience and apologize for the inconveniences.

  • Project Status: April 11, 2023 - Noise Impacts April 18-24

    The City contractor, Filanc, is currently making preparations to install the new underground pump station structures. The final step of preparations will be to install shoring for the excavation operation. During the shoring installation, the surrounding area will be impacted by the noise generated from the operation.

    Mitigation measures are in place which consist of sound reduction materials installed on the fence along the north and south property lines, however, noise levels will be elevated throughout the surrounding neighborhood during this phase.

    The work will consist of sheet pile installation using a vibratory hammer. Large heavy equipment has been mobilized for this work.

    Neighborhood Impacts

    • From April 18 to April 28, there will be a high level of noise and vibration, as a result of steel sheet pile driving and installation. A noise control plan is in place; however, please note - it will still be loud during those seven days.


    Hours of Operation for Shoring Installation
    Noise impacts will be limited to Monday-Friday between 7:00 am to 4:00 pm.

    • Shoring box was prepped and installed around the storm drain force mains
    • Added additional precautions around the site to make everyone on site aware of the overhead utility safety hazard
    • BMP’s are an ongoing focus to minimize track out
    • Updated traffic control to increase visibility

    Upcoming activities

    • Sheet-pile installation will begin this week, aiming for Thursday, April 13.
    • Continuing to excavate to subgrade at the Storm Drain Access and Meter vault structure.
    • Major excavation and soil export will begin for the deep underground structures.

    • February 27, 2023 Project Update
    • The materials and deliveries continue to be secured, which is vital to the project, to minimize scheduling and delivery impacts.
    • Sound abatement barriers have been installed along portions of the south and north property lines. Crews are potholing (excavating) the existing 54" and 24" storm drain pipes to confirm the alignment, elevation, and outer diameters, before specific materials are ordered.
    • Beginning on March 1, the intersection at Eighth Street and Coronado Avenue will be closed for an extended period of time for the construction. The closure will ensure safety within the work zone and the surrounding area.
    • The contractor will also install the shoring system in the next few weeks. The work will take place sometime between March 1-22. The installation is expected to take 5-10 days and will be limited to working days (Monday-Friday) between 7 am and 4 pm. Notifications will be sent out soon and the contractor will distribute a door hanger, once the actual installation schedule is known.
    • The contractor will work to complete the project as quickly as possible while minimizing the noise, and other impacts. We appreciate the community's patience as this vital new pump station is constructed.
