BACKGROUND

The Seal Beach Pump Station, located at the intersection of Seal Beach Boulevard and Westminster Boulevard in the City of Seal Beach, was constructed in 1970 and must handle up to 34 million gallons per day during peak wet weather flows.

Staff had initiated Seal Beach Pump Station Rehabilitation, Project No. 3-62, in 2015 with the intention of designing for a rehabilitation. During the design of the rehabilitation, however, it was determined that the pump station should be replaced, rather than rehabilitated. Replacement with a deeper pump station allows for construction of a gravity sewer between the Seal Beach Pump Station and the upstream West Side Pump Station. This would allow the West Side Pump Station to be abandoned, which would reduce maintenance costs and spill risks. This decision was presented at the March 2018 Operations Committee. As such, the Seal Beach Pump Station rehabilitation work was cancelled and replaced with two new projects, Seal Beach Pump Station Replacement, Project No. 3-67, and Los Alamitos Sub-Trunk Extension, Project No. 3-68, as part of the Fiscal Year 2018-19 Budget.
