Nall Avenue Pump Station Upgrades

Ensuring the plentifulness of water on demand is a core responsibility of WaterOne. Through extensive and ongoing master planning efforts, WaterOne identifies customer growth and syncs infrastructure expansion accordingly. To address customer demand, WaterOne is preparing to move forward with Phase II at its existing Nall Avenue Pump Station located at Nall Avenue and 146th Street. The project will install additional internal pumping equipment and electrical gear inside the existing building, and expand its capacity with an additional 6 million gallon underground reservoir to complement the existing 6 million gallon buried reservoir already on the site. The plant expansions will help meet future growth and service needs in WaterOne's southeast service area, ensure consistent water pressure, and continue to guarantee the highest level of fire protection water supply readiness for WaterOne customers.
When construction is complete, the pump station and surrounding green space will appear the same as prior to construction. This project is being completed by Crossland Heavy Contractors with engineering services provided by Burns and McDonnell.
Construction will begin in January 2020 and is expected to be complete by April 2021. Working hours will be from 7 am to 6 pm on a Monday through Friday schedule. Water service will not be affected by this project.
Heavy truck traffic can be expected on Nall Avenue from 146th Street to 151st Street throughout spring and summer during the project's excavation phase. Every effort will be made to reduce disruption for area residents, and measures will be taken to minimize dust from the site and keep the roadways clean. The sidewalk will remain open for use, and a flagman will be present to ensure pedestrian safety before and after school hours.
WaterOne's Nall Avenue Pump Station was originally designed to accommodate future expansion. Only underground infrastructure is being added, and when the project is completed, the site will look the same as before with minor alternations in greenscaping due to disruption from construction. Trees on the property will be protected as much as possible, and any landscaping that is affected by construction will be restored to the same size and quality. The site will continue to be maintained by WaterOne as an attractive green space amenity for the community.

WaterOne has updated residents in the neighborhoods near this project about planned work during morning hours. The early morning work is necessary due to pouring concrete during hot summer weather, and WaterOne is taking steps to minimize disruption. Read the letter (PDF).
