HRSD construction project

The Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) has announced the start of a multi-phase construction project that will impact traffic for King’s Grant residents who use N. Lynnhaven Rd to reach Virginia Beach Blvd.  For detailed information, including a project map and updates, go to this web page:https://www.hrsd.com/virginia-beach-blvd-pipeline-and-pinetree-ps

Some of the details were discussed at our KGCL meeting on February 21.  Following is an excerpt from the HRSD communication to the KGCL:

 

Project

Sanitary Sewer System Improvements: Virginia Beach Boulevard Pipeline and Pinetree Pumping Station

 

Overview

HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, is undertaking a multiphase project to decommission its Chesapeake-Elizabeth Treatment Plant (CETP), built in 1965, located at 5332 Shore Drive, in the City of Virginia Beach. An extensive study determined it was more advantageous to upgrade parts of the sanitary sewer system throughout the city rather than upgrade existing treatment plant process systems to meet the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality requirement to reduce treated discharges to the Chesapeake Bay. The treatment plant closure and corresponding sanitary sewer system upgrades will not only address regulatory requirements, but will also improve the overall operation and reliability of the sewer system. To accomplish this decommissioning, HRSD will redirect sewage flows previously being sent to and treated at the CETP to other existing HRSD treatment plants in the area.

 

As part of this larger initiative, several smaller sewer system improvement projects have been or will be implemented. Two of these projects located along a portion of Virginia Beach Boulevard and within the Pinetree neighborhood are detailed below:

 

The Virginia Beach Boulevard Sanitary Sewer Pipeline Improvement project will replace the existing 24-inch sewer pipeline with a larger 42-inch pipeline to reliably convey the increased sewer flow along Virginia Beach Boulevard from North Lynnhaven Road to Great Neck Road.

 

The Pinetree Pumping Station Improvement project, located at 2924 Virginia Beach Boulevard, will update the internal equipment and reconfigure the external piping for the station. These improvements are needed to handle the increased flows along this corridor and improve station reliability.

 

In coordination with the City of Virginia Beach and in an effort to minimize multiple disruptions to the public, HRSD will construct the smaller City sewer pipelines to connect City pump stations to the new HRSD pipeline.

 

The following roads will be impacted at some point throughout construction:

– Portions of Virginia Beach Boulevard and intersections from North Lynnhaven Road to Great Neck Road.

– Eureka Avenue

– Parker Lane

 

Key Dates

Staging:              Actual Month to start     April 2019

Construction:    By seasons                        Spring 2019 thru December 2021

Restoration:      Immediately following construction

The Virginia Beach Boulevard pipeline will not begin until Fall 2019.
