Prince William Service Authority wants to replace sewage pump in Graham Park Shores

From Prince William Service Authority: 

The Prince William County Service Authority will hold a public information session on the Graham Park Sewage Pump Station Replacement Project on Oct. 4 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Dumfries-Triangle Rescue Squad on 3800 Graham Park Road in Triangle.

The purpose of the project is to replace an antiquated pump station on Shoreview Drive in Graham Park Shores in order to improve service and system reliability for residents in the area. The site around the new pump station will be improved to protect the facilities from storm surge flooding and new fencing will be installed around the premises.

Construction is not expected to start until 2018.

The cost to replace the 50-year-old pump is $1.9 million. The area is known to flood, according to this statement from Prince William Service Authority spokesman Kipp Hanley: 

Because the area lies within a floodplain and adjacent to Quantico Creek, the area has had flooding issues in the past. However, there has never been a sewer overflow. The facility is being constructed to meet floodplain elevation requirements that were updated in 2015. By doing this, the Service Authority will better protect the station from possible flooding concerns. As stated in the release, this new station will also improve system reliability for residents living in the Graham Park Shores subdivision.
