Lift Station Modification on Route 6 by the Resort Municipality of Stanley Bridge, Hope River, Bayview, Cavendish and North Rustico

Municipal pumping station #4 is located adjacent to Route 6 and the area surrounding the work site is a Parks Canada leased Agricultural field that is currently used as cattle pasture. A 2019 assessment determined that the pumping station did not meet peak flow rates and storage for the area. The Resort Municipality plans to expand this pumping station to meet the capacity requirements of peak tourist season. Expansion work is proposed in the fall of 2023 with installation of the generator to follow in 2024. All materials and construction activity will take place inside the designated area (inside the silt fence and lot boundary). Onsite topsoil and sod, removed for excavation, will be used for backfill and landscaping to ensure that minimal foreign substance is brought into the area. Class A gravel, bedding sand, select borrow, and clear stone will be imported for trenches, driveway improvement, and the cast-in-place concrete equipment pad. A small excavator or backhoe will be used to excavate (to a maximum depth of 3.2m) and install one precast valve chamber and trenching for the force main reconnection. A sanitary pumping truck will be onsite during station downtime, to ensure the station remains operational.
