Water / Wastewater Infrastructure and Repairs

Birkdale was listed as the number one wastewater system priority in the 2008 Utility Master Plan.  The design and construction of this lift station, gravity mains, and force mains will free up capacity in Legion and Quinlan lift stations and allow for new development in the Birkdale, Broadway, Comanche Trace, G Street, Jefferson, and Legion Basins.  The development of the Birkdale system is the cornerstone in our ability to supply water services throughout the City.  The Birkdale Lift Station and Force Main projects are both currently under construction with an anticipated completion date for both projects by September 2013.

G Street Interceptor:

As part of the FY11 Budget, the G Street Interceptor Design project was approved and funded by FY11 Water and Sewer Debt.  This project was identified in the 2008 Water and Wastewater Master Plan to relieve the Legion Lift Station and to decommission the G Street Lift Station.  The plan calls for new gravity sewer mains / interceptors to be constructed so that flows can be conveyed from the G Street Basin to the New Birkdale Lift Station that is currently under construction. 

The new G Street Interceptor will begin at the existing G Street lift station and generally proceed approximately 8,100 linear feet to the southeast along the south side of the Guadalupe River and terminate at the proposed Birkdale lift station.  Completion of this interceptor project, along with the decommission of the existing G Street lift station, will allow flows from the G Street basin to be directed to the proposed Birkdale lift station instead of going to the Legion lift station, as it does currently.  A portion of the flow from the Jefferson lift station will also be redirected to the proposed Birkdale lift station via the interceptor.  Ultimately, the proposed interceptor is anticipated to also convey a portion of the flows from the Broadway lift station via a force main that will tie in near the location of the existing G Street lift station.  This project is currently in design and is anticipated to go into construction around May 2013.

Jefferson Lift Station and Force Main

This project was identified in the 2008 Water and Wastewater Master Plan as a critical upgrade due to it is currently operating beyond its firm capacity, which is defined as the total pumping capacity of a lift station at maximum day demand with the largest pump out of service.  Jefferson Lift Station will be expanded to increase its firm pumping capacity, its well capacity, and size to accommodate future pumps to serve the existing and future peak flows from the Jefferson Basin and Ingram wholesale area.  In addition to the lift station improvements, a new force main and gravity main will be constructed to covey flow across the Guadalupe River to the proposed G Street Interceptor that is currently under design and slated for construction commencement around May 2013.  Design and construction of this project will include a force main sanitary sewer which will require one bore beneath the Guadalupe River and one bore beneath the TxDot right of way at Lemos Street, to include all relevant coordination and permitting through TxDot and the State of Texas General Land Office.  Routing of the proposed force main will be beneath and to the south side of the Guadalupe River, at which point the sewer will transition to a gravity system and will be routed through Louise Hays Park and will convey flows to the gravity interceptor sanitary sewer, also being designed under a separate contract, near the location of the existing G-Street lift station.
