What is this project?
The Highlands Sewer Relief Project is upgrading critical sewer facilities—including sewer pipes and pump stations—in part of the Sacramento Area Sewer District’s (SASD’s) northwest service area. The work is occurring in North Highlands in a residential area bordered by Watt Avenue, Elkhorn Boulevard, and Roseville Road.
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 come.
