Document Description
The Nipomo Community Services District proposes the construction of a new 160-gallon-per-minute (gpm) lift station and associated facilities at the existing Blacklake WRF, installation of approximately 4.15 miles (21,930 linear feet) of new 6-inch force main pipeline from the proposed lift station to the existing Southland WWTF, and the decommissioning and demolition of the existing Blacklake WRF after the new lift station is completed and operating. Construction of the new lift station, installation of the pipeline, and demolition of the Blacklake WRF would occur over a 2-year anticipated work period. Project construction would generally occur in two phases, with construction and installation of the force main pipeline occurring first (Phase 1), and construction of the new lift station and decommissioning of the Blacklake WRF occurring second (Phase 2). The project would require approximately 23,600 cubic yards of cut, 25,700 cubic yards of fill, and 14,600 cubic yards of imported fill materials.
