  • Design $190,775 started in FY2012 (delayed due to USACOE permitting issues)  • Additional drainage design $18K FY2014
  • Environmental Mitigation $560K FY2016  • Construction $2.5M FY2018

(2) Nottingham Ditch (1400LF) from Calder Road to the Interurban Ditch ($1.72M):

  • Design $190,775 started in FY2012 (delayed due to USACOE permitting issues) • Environmental permitting $30K budgeted in FY2014
  • Construction $1.5M FY2016

(3) Bradshaw Road (1600LF) SW from SH3 to the north line of CCISD's Parr Elementary School ($2.24M):

(5) FM518-Myrtlewood Ditch (1400LF) ($3.12M)

  • Design $120K FY2018  • Construction $3M FY2020


NOTE:  Project(s) identified in the LAN drainage study for the Historic District area is a separate project in this program.

Why It’s Needed:

The majority of the City's lift stations have seen capacity improvements and rehibilitation activity in past years, through the City's on-going Capital Improvement Program and O&M funded projects. Two of the above mentioned sites were constructed in the early eighties and are critical stations serving large service areas. Although some improvements have occurred, the pumps and associated piping have been in service for close to thirty years and have reached the end of their expected service life. The DSWWTP duty pumps were retrofitted into lift station in 1997. Duty pumps run during low demands to save energy and also assist peak flow weather events, in this scenario run times and wear are often doubled in comparison to standard applications. Replacement reduces frequency of costly repair activity on pumps of this age, repairs at this horsepower range from $10K - $30K.
