SCWD Awards Butier Next Phase Lift Station No. 2 Replacement
South Coast Water District (SCWD) selected Butier Engineering to provide construction management, observation, and inspection services for the Lift Station No. 2 Replacement Project. Construction for the project is expected to break ground in September 2021 and be completed in January 2024.
The existing station is set into the Aliso Creek Canyon slope, 700 feet east of Pacific Coast Highway and adjacent to The Ranch at Laguna Beach, a luxury hotel and golf course. With a firm capacity of 3,200 GPM, Lift Station No. 2 is the largest in SCWD’s system. All sewage generated in the District’s South Coast system is conveyed to this facility and is pumped to the SOCWA Coastal Treatment Plant for treatment and reuse. Butier’s CM team has a thorough knowledge of the unique project challenges, having performed similar services for SCWD’s Lift Station No. 2 Force Main Rehabilitation Project, which was completed in 2019.
The scope of work includes constructing a new sewer lift station; installing a Channel Monster; demolishing the existing lift station; connecting the new lift station to the existing sewer; constructing a masonry building to house the generator and electrical equipment; installing a control interface with the District’s SCADA system; and constructing a drainage channel and connection to the existing storm drain pipe.
