WHAT: The City of Kirkland is currently designing the replacement for the aging underground sanitary sewer lift station on Rose Point’s 10th Street West. The new station will be both below-ground and above-ground. The roughly 900 square-foot site is on the southwest corner of 10th Street West.
WHY: The existing lift station has reached the end of its useful life. Upgrading it will ensure health and sanitation throughout Market neighborhood for decades.
FEATURES: The facility features an estimated 300 square-foot control and generator room, a retaining wall and a back-up generator. The project will upgrade the lift station’s electrical controls.
WHEN: Project staff is forecasting the design’s completion in 2016 and the beginning of construction later in 2016 or 2017. These forecasts are estimates and based on unforeseen circumstances.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Project staff will discuss plans for the new lift station at a 6 to 8:30 p.m., Oct. 21 public drop-in meeting in City Hall’s Council Chambers.
