Fremont Pump Station

Environmental Services is constructing upgrades to the almost 40-year-old Fremont Pump Station, a sewage pump station located on NE Fremont Drive near NE 89th Avenue. While the pump station structures will largely remain unchanged, aside from new roofing and minor repairs, the pumping system will be upgraded. The improvements will replace aging equipment, ensure safe and reliable operations, and meet current noise and odor control standards.

Click here for details about the pump station improvements. This project will help to ensure the pump station operates safely and efficiently to protect public health, water quality, and the environment.

Schedule

Construction will go through several phases and is anticipated to be completed in August 2019.

Typical work hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, with construction on Saturday if needed.

Recent Accomplishments

The City’s contractor, Stettler Supply Company, continues to work on-site at the Fremont Pump Station. Their recent accomplishments include the following:

  • Demolished the old mechanical, electrical, and plumbing equipment
  • Demolished the rest of the wet well
  • Painted the control room interior
  • Installed control room panels
  • Reset the existing pump
  • Excavated for installation of shoring, pipes, vaults, and other equipment
  • Poured concrete for pump station systems
  • Installed equipment for pump station cleaning and maintenance

A temporary bypass pumping system is in place and operating properly. It will continue to operate until the upgrade project is completed. It is diverting combined sewer and stormwater flows to other parts of the sewer system. These pipes have the capacity to handle increased flows while the pump station upgrades are under construction.

Upcoming Activities 

Over the next several weeks, the contractor will focus on the following activities:

  • Install gutters and downspouts
  • Install sound trap pads
  • Install the new matching pump
  • Install new pipes
  • Complete electrical work
  • Complete exterior concrete work for the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems
  • Install the new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units
