North Regional Pond & Pump Station Project

Project Status: Planning

Anticipated Construction Start Date: 2019

Project Description

The North Regional Pond is located just to the north of the City’s Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF) and south of the WDCWA Regional Water Treatment Facility and is the site of former wastewater treatment operations that ceased in the mid-1980s. The pond was closed out of the WPCF’s permit in 2014, which allows for other uses of the site. The project serves as storm drainage mitigation feature for Spring Lake Area developments. With the current pace of housing development in Spring Lake, the storm drainage capacity provided by the North Regional Pond will need to be in place in the near term. The project generally includes work within the existing pond to repurpose it to storm water treatment and detention with a capacity of approximately 1,000 acre-feet and also the construction of a 90 cubic foot/second storm drainage pumping plant located on Main Street across the street from the East Main Pump Station.
