The City of Ottawa has initiated the design for upgrades to four (4) existing sanitary pump stations that were originally installed between 1989 and 1994 and located in Ward 7: Bay. Two (2) sanitary pump stations are located within Britannia Village Community and the remaining two (2) sanitary pump stations are within Carlington West-Glabar Park-McKellar Heights Community.
Project Upgrade Objective
The main objective of the project is to improve the resiliency and reliability of the operation of the four (4) flow-through sanitary pump stations located near the West Nepean Collector (WNC), the level of service (LOS) provided by the stations will be maintained throughout the rehabilitation and retrofit work.
All sanitary pump stations will be retrofitted to provide:
- One (1) duty and one (1) standby pump
- One (1) backup/emergency natural gas generator
- Updated electrical and instrumentation to current City of Ottawa Standards
- Other upgrades including process mechanical piping and ancillary equipment
General Station Operation
All four (4) sanitary pump stations operate as a sanitary sewer (also known as Flow Through) for many of the seasons (summer/fall/winter).
Descriptions, locations and general upgrades of each of the four (4) sanitary pump stations follow.
