This project replaced key components of the system that were close to the end of their expected life.
Pump Station Motor Control Center (MCC) Installation and Commissioning 2019 – Three large Pump Stations move the sewage from main collection locations in the city through the Cross Town Interceptor to the WWTP. The equipment that runs these stations was in need of replacement to allow for more efficient and controllable operation.
