The City of Sanford owns and operates the Gaster’s Creek Lift Station. The current station consists of 2,800-gallons-per-minute constant-speed pumps, which discharge flow to a gravity system, located near the intersection of St. Andrews Church Road (SR 1146) and Tramway Road (NC Hwy 78), through approximately 17,075 linear feet of 18-inch Ductile Iron Pipe force main. The manhole and portions of the collection system at the point of the force main connection had experienced significant corrosion and was the source of multiple odor complains. Freese and Nichols evaluated various alternatives to address the odor and corrosion issues, including modifications at the lift station and changes to the force main and gravity main system. In addition, our team also evaluated the station’s existing electrical system and overall operation and made recommendations for improvements.
