Crews Prep for Sanitary Pump Station Work

Work begins soon on updating a pump system south of 4 Mile Rd and east of Alpine Avenue.

Later this spring, Kamminga and Roodvoets Excavating (K&R) will build a new pump station immediately adjacent to the existing pump house. This is located east of the Kingsbury and Gage neighborhood and north of Center Drive. However, beginning the week of February 6, Integrity Tree Service will be removing some trees ahead of the replacement work.

K&R will construct a new sanitary forcemain from the station east to Green Ridge Drive. The forcemain is used to push wastewater upstream where it can be discharged into a gravity sewer. In this case, the gravity sewer will be in Springbrook Drive with the connection being made near the Green Ridge and Springbrook intersection. 

This project is being administered by The City of Grand Rapids as part of our regional utility partnership. Our Walker team will stay engaged and continue to provide updates as they become available.
