Project Purpose and Need
The project removed sediment buildup inside and outside the North Point Outfall structure, and relined/installed corrosion protection systems on pipes and structural supports. These facilities are a critical part of wastewater operations and due to aging and the harsh marine environment are in need of repair.
The North Point Facility provides pre-treatment and primary-level treatment with disinfection of wastewater collected in the north part of the City. As the exclusive wet-weather treatment facility dedicated to reducing the rain’s impact on the City’s system, it is vital that the North Point Facility and associated facilities maintain reliable and safe operation.
- Increase sewer system reliability and continue to provide sewer services during wet weather conditions.
- Protect water quality and aquatic life in the Bay.
Project schedule: May 2017 - February 2018. Construction has completed! We would like to thank the local businesses, residents, and community for their patience during the construction phase of the North Point Facility Outfall Rehabilitation Project.
