BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that the facility plan approved pursuant to Resolution 06-0309 is hereby amended to provide for constructing a sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) basin near Endion pump station (18th Avenue East and the Lakewalk) first, and then if required at 32nd Avenue East and London Road.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Resolution 06-0309 adopted the facility plan for sanitary sewer overflow storage to the Lakeside interceptor. This resolution will adopt the amendment to the facility plan. The facility plan recommends that storage basin construction be completed in two phases, with the first basin to be constructed at 32nd Avenue East and London Road and, if required, an additional storage basin near Endion pump station. The amendment to the facility plan would change the sequence of basin construction by first constructing an SSO basin near Endion pump station (18th Avenue East and the Lakewalk) and then if required at 32nd Avenue East and London Road.
By constructing the SSO basin near Endion pump station, it places the storage basin adjacent to known overflows. It eliminates the need for pumps as the basin will fill and empty by gravity; it eliminates the need for standby generator power since pumps are not required; it minimizes maintenance; it simplifies the operation since it can be constructed at a much shallower depth; and it is substantially less expensive, estimated to be $1,000,000 less than a tank at 32nd Avenue East and London Road.
