Goulds Sewage Pumping Station Replacement Project


Built by the Town of Goulds in 1983, the existing Goulds Sewage Pumping Station located at 557 Main Road has out lived its useful life and requires complete replacement. A new modernized facility will be built adjacent to the old facility and will convey the existing and future sewage flows for the Goulds area. This facility will be remotely monitored and operated through the Riverhead Wastewater Treatment Facility.

PROJECT FUNDING

The project was approved to receive cost shared funding on August 1, 2016 through the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund. The funding partners for this project are the Government of Canada, Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the City of St. John's.

  • Will this new station allow for further residential areas to be opened up expansion or will it allow areas that currently do not have water and sewer to get that service? What areas would be looked at if that be the case?

    Newfpcp asked 3 months ago

    The new Goulds Sewage Pumping Station is being constructed to replace the outdated pumping station constructed in the 1980's. The new Goulds Sewage Pumping Station is sized to expand the currently restricted Goulds Service Area only at a point in the future when there is a substantial reduction in infiltration into the Goulds sewer system. The City has been actively working for the past number of years on investigating and lining the problem sewers in an effort to reduce the amount of infiltration into the sewers. This infiltration (or groundwater) in the existing sanitary sewer system is limiting further residential expansion in the Goulds area beyond the current servicing limits.

  • 2 questions : 1. Will there be any disruptions in Water services for the GOULDS during Construction? 2. Will there be a public meeting for residents of the GOULDS to discuss construction/ disruptions/ any other issues?...

    ahowlett asked 6 months ago

    A: With our apologies for the delayed response. There are no water disruptions planned for the Goulds area as a part of this project. There is no public meeting planned for this project.  Communications and information sharing on the project is thought the Engage website. Traffic disruptions would be through normal City notification procedures on the City's website

  • When will construction start?

    Bill asked 6 months ago

    There was a Public Service Announcement issued by the City on December 19th, 2017, indicating that work onsite would be starting in the coming weeks.  An exact start date has yet to be determined with the contractor.
