BACKGROUND

The Seal Beach Pump Station currently discharges all flow through a single 42-inch diameter ductile iron force main that is approaching the end of its useful life. A second 30-inch force main exists. This second pipe is made of a material known to fail catastrophically. It was removed from service approximately four years ago. The Orange County Sanitation District (Sanitation District) was compensated for this faulty pipe material by the original manufacturer many years ago.

This project will replace the two force mains with two parallel 36-inch high-density polyethylene pipes. These force mains run from the Seal Beach Pump Station at the intersection of Seal Beach Boulevard and Westminster Boulevard in the City of Seal Beach, to the intersection of Westminster Boulevard and Rancho Road in the City of Westminster, a distance of approximately 14,000 feet.
