MOULTON NIGUEL IMPROVES WASTEWATER INFRASTRUCTURE AT REGIONAL LIFT STATION

 

 

 

Moulton Niguel has successfully completed improvements at the Regional Lift Station, built in 1979, to enhance reliability, protect public health and the environment, and support future generations to come. The Regional Lift Station is located on Alicia Parkway, adjacent to Laguna Niguel Regional Park, and has an average flow of 5MGD (million gallons per day). More than half of all the wastewater generated in the District flows through this facility every day.

 

 

 

WHAT IS A LIFT STATION?

 

 

 

Wastewater from homes and businesses is collected in sewer pipelines, where it generally flows by gravity. Due to the topography in our service area, it is sometimes necessary to pump (or “lift”) the wastewater from lower to higher elevations. This pumping occurs at more than a dozen lift stations located throughout the District, allowing the wastewater to flow to treatment plants, where it can be treated and recycled for irrigation.

The Regional Lift Station improvements included:

  • New standby emergency bypass pump
  • Pump replacement
  • Wet well rehabilitation

The new standby emergency bypass pump will provide for uninterrupted operation of the station in the event of a power outage or other disruption at the facility. One of the existing pumps at the station was replaced with a new pump that is sized to increase efficiency and provide operational flexibility, which will also help the pumps to last longer. The original protective lining on the concrete wet well structure was removed and replaced with a new lining system.
The total project cost was approximately $5M. This investment will help to ensure that this critical wastewater facility will continue to provide reliable service to our customers for many years to come and will continue to help protect our local creeks and beaches.
