The Sailor Bar Pump
Station is located off the Sailor Bar Park Olive Avenue
access in Fair Oaks and is in need of rehabilitation. As one of
106 pump stations that SASD owns and operates, the aging facility
is in need of repairs and updates. This project includes raising
the finished elevation 5 feet above the 100-year floodplain,
installing two wet wells, valve vaults, and a new facilities
building. This new infrastructure will provide operation
redundancy and reliability, increase the functional efficiency of
the pump station, and reduce the risk of an overflow. Upon
completion, the updated pump station will allow SASD to continue
to provide reliable sewer service to the community for decades to
Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2021.
Residents may see smaller vehicles or trucks, and a few members
of the project team with safety vests or Maintenance and
Operation staff coming and going prior to construction. Before
construction begins, we will update residents on what to expect
while the new pump station is under construction.
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 door hanger
notifications, mailers, and project website updates.
