The aging Capitola Pump Station located between Capitola Avenue
and Earnscliff Avenue in Fair Oaks is in need of
replacement. As one of 106 pump stations that SASD owns and
operates, the aging facility is in need of replacement. This
project will replace all components in the pump station and
install a new wet well and valve vault. The project will
also include replacing the headwall in the culvert under the
station, installing a new curb and guardrail along the driveway,
building a new retaining wall, and paving new asphalt. When
complete, the new pump station will allow SASD to continue to
provide reliable sewer service to the community for decades to
The project is still in the design phase, which should be
completed sometime this summer. Unanticipated permitting issues
have pushed the schedule back several months, and construction is
now anticipated to begin sometime in the latter part
When our team accesses the site during the design phase,
residents may see smaller vehicles or trucks and a few people
with safety vests coming and going. Before construction begins,
we will update residents on what to expect while the new pump
station is being built.
No Interruption in Sewer Service
Sewer service interruptions are not expected during this project.
Residents will be able to continue to use water and flush
toilets, as usual.
Keeping Residents Informed
SASD is committed to ensuring residents are kept fully informed
prior to and during construction. We will communicate through a
variety of methods, including in person and via doorhanger
notifications, mailers, and project website updates.
