Sewer Improvement Projects


Sewer Improvement Projects

SASD implements necessary infrastructure improvements to ensure the safe and reliable performance of the sewer system. This section provides information about current projects that may affect our customers.


Rosemont Pump Station

SASD’s Rosemont Pump Station is located on the north side of Kiefer Boulevard just west of South Port Drive (see map). It is one of 106 pump stations that SASD owns and operates. The aging station has civil, electrical, mechanical, and structural components that no longer meet SASD’s operating standards. As a result, a new pump station is now being built on the current site to replace the old equipment.

When complete, the Rosemont Pump Station will feature more efficient pumps and modern controls. The new station will also be safer for the maintenance crews who keep the station in good working order.

Ultimately, the project will allow SASD to continue to provide reliable sewer service for the community in the decades to come.


Project construction is underway. If all goes according to plan, the work is anticipated to be complete by summer 2019. Work hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Construction Impacts

As always, every effort will be made to minimize impacts to adjacent neighbors and the community. Typical impacts during these kinds of projects include noise, dust, vibration, and odor. Temporary traffic controls may be necessary during equipment delivery or when construction vehicles are accessing the site. Impacts will generally be limited to the immediate area surrounding the station.

No Interruption in Sewer Service

Construction will not interrupt sewer service, and street access to residents’ homes will be maintained at all times.

Safety First

For public and worker safety, access to the sidewalk near the pump station may be restricted from time to time. While most activities will occur inside the pump station, please use caution around the facility.

Capitola Pump Station

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 come.


The project is anticipated to take about two years to design and construct. Initial site investigations and design of the new facilities will take most of the rest of 2019, after which construction will begin in early 2020.

Current Activities

Our project engineers and design consultants are accessing the site and its immediate surroundings to conduct a topographic survey, geotechnical analysis, and field investigations. These ongoing activities will provide the information we need to design the new pump station.

Community Impacts

When our team accesses the site during this initial phase, there should only be minimal noise or disruption, as we will primarily be performing surveys and measurements. 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.
